Letter: No help easing the pain

Saturday, April 14, 2018

We need a hero. Our doctors can’t prescribe our medicine, for fear of liability. We lose, and the insurance companies and lawyers win. We are forced to go to pain clinics, where our basic human rights and dignity are nonexistent. We lose, and the pain clinics are just another way to take money. There is no one in government who will even acknowledge our existence. I have tried. There are no lawyers who will touch us with a 10-foot pole. I have tried. Writing letters to patient relations are futile. I have tried. Does anyone out there know where we can find a hero?
