I commented on the CDC's rewrite.
For whatever that's worth.
I'm exhausted, angry, & now grieving a loss that no parent should ever have to face.
I've had my health & ability to live stolen and lost far too many people I love and care about to this #OpioidInsanity.

2- My comment?
You have no intention of ending this atrocity. You have had people in the pain community chasing their tails for years while asking for our input and 'comments'.

3-We've explained over and over that we are suffering and dying out here in the real world. That MDs tell us to our faces that they are AFRAID of the DEA, and that we are not worth risking their licenses over.

This was the "Pain Patients Bill of Rights" in 1997.
Let me repeat that date.
1997.
MDs already had the right to REFUSE pain meds-
LE to go after illegal use.
The whole 'everyone getting opioids like candy' is & was BS.

2-This is the business code info referenced in the above linked 'Patients Bill of Rights'-Cal. Health & Safety Code §124960.

Patients abandoned.
'No opioid Interventional Medicine' has become standard of tx.
