I'd like to explain why #PainPatients & the #disability community is having a VERY difficult time w/this suite of articles about #ChronicPain.
I did find a more balanced view in some of the articles, & that's a good start for journos covering #ChronicPain. Sadly, it isn't enough.
For the past 7 years, #PainPatients have endured the draconian shift in #healthcare & attitudes toward pain & disability.

Countless patients lost their meds.
Many patients lost their doctors.
Some patients lost their jobs, their spouses, even their children.

Some of us died.🥺
In 2016, the #CDC unleashed their #Guidelines for prescribing #opioids for #ChronicPain.

The guidelines were adopted as a mandate in Rxing & the #StandardOfCare across the board.

Overnight, #PainPatients became a glaring liability for all doctors, & the consequences are harsh.

Wonder if Gary Mendell feels good demonizing opioid pharma’s influence, while his board member Thomas McLellan sits on Indivior’s board! Price of doing business, huh
#PainProfiteers #Hypocrites…
#AndrewKolodny also sits along-side McLellan on #Shatterproof’s board. They’ve lobbied relentlessly to force the CDC guidelines into state and federal laws. This has caused irreparable harm and to this day, goes unchecked.

I find it wildly inappropriate that #AndrewKolodny is promoting opioid free breast surgery by elevating a #pacira pharma-paid MD! Talk about a sexist hypocrite. See for yourselves! #ipp #cpp #PROP #PainProfiteers…
Just an FYI- Pacira - maker of #Exparel, a patented post op buvicane injectable that’s being advertised as the answer to the opioid crisis. The corruption, smh.

@JSG_54 I’d like to make a list of which ones and when they were put on the payroll from the attorneys. Also, others like Caleb Alexander and Tim Munson. Anyone that has had their hand in policy or publicly demonized pain meds and then profited off of litigation, get em on the list.

When patients snd MDs blame congress, Trump, and Biden for what’s happening to them as far as the #WarOnDoctors and #PainPatientGenocide, my question is this: If these leaders aren’t trained medically, who is giving them info that’s caused these actions to be taken?
Wouldn’t we be better off systematically going through testimonies before congress and opioid committees to see who exactly deceived them and go after them? I’ve been doing this and have found most of the “experts” are actually rich now from testifying in the opioid lawsuits.
A great example is #ChrisChristie. While he didn’t testify in the #opioid lawsuits, he was on the white-house opioid commission and now sits on the board of #Pacira making at least $800,000 a year to help with their anti-opioid #PlanAgainstPain campaign and lobbying for rx limits
