I stayed up & did all my work so I can get some much needed rest today & dammit all I want is to find a comfortable position that doesn't make my legs hurt or for the medicine to work or for the muscle relaxer to knock me TF out or for the Biofreeze to work! #fml#chronicpain

It's kind of weird to me to read this article, with interviews with physicians who seem to have not thought rationally about prescribing a drug that is pure opiate.
Think about it - a single oxy is as powerful as FOURTEEN Percocet.

Oxycodone - and other opiate painkillers - when compounded with other drugs (particularly non-opiate painkillers, like acetaminophen and ibuprofen), can easily kill you if you take enough to get the high you get from a single Oxy.
In fact, cargo is treated better than I have been. In my last 3 flights, at least once at every stop, I have been overlooked by wheelchair assistance. At least once at every stop I have had to request a wheelchair attendant more than once.
At least once at every stop I have had to combine the luck of having a delta employee in shouting distance with that employee not being busy with other things in order to be able to move about the gate, whether to get food, drink water, or use the restroom. It is dehumanizing.
At least with my bags, I can find out where my bag is, looking in the app. With your accessibility services, I have gotten used to the cadence of how employees call for a wheelchair attendant, because it has to happen multiple times.
-Oregon's Health Evidence Review Commission and Value-based Benefits Subcommittee (HERC and VbBS) are proposing changes to Medicaid
