So far, 🚫 ONE Presidential candidate nor Pres Trump has really acknowledged the great # of pain patients & how this WILL be a deciding factor in 2020.

This thread is to show everyone just HOW MANY votes whoever PUBLICLY stand up4 & WITH us can gain!

Remember, these #’s do not count med pros tired of inflicting pain or our friends/families watching us suffer, this is a LOW ESTIMATE!

When we do a google search for ‘how many take pain meds daily in the USA’ all that shows up is the misleading 130 people die daily from opioids.
B/c of that, we have to use a best guess on numbers of pain patients on Long Term Opioid Therapy.

I am using the number that @Kellyanepolls used in a show w/ @ericbolling of 28million taking pain meds daily, of which she adds that her own mom is one who benefits from pain meds!

I’ll try my best to explain what living with severe daily chronic pain is like and the fear we face over forced government dose cuts :
If you’ve ever had a major surgery imagine the fear you would have if the doctor sent you home in excruciating pain with no Med to help it . Now imagine if that happened and there was pain for days you couldn’t do anything about.
No “just go to the doctor and they’ll fix it feeling “
No “this is bad but it’ll be over in a few days “
