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!

Read & RT the WHOLE thread!
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!

Not all pain patients, health care providers (HCPs), friends/family watching us suffer, & new injury/surg patients will be single issue voters BUT many/most will! Let’s just count pain patients & assume the few who are not single issue voters are made up by the others I mention☝️
So in JUST these 12 CRITICAL #BattlegroundStates (none of which are in the top 3 in population either), we can EASILY assume 8.5MILLION votes are on the line.

If we extrapolate that to entire US population, it becomes approx 28 MILLION votes! Too many to risk ignoring!
For anyone who doubts that we will show up in droves to vote, consider this: we are organizing NOW, we will ensure everyone in our cumulative social media reach (currently ~1.25MILLION when add all groups together & we’re GROWING DAILY) are registered & know how to vote by mail,
and WE ARE SUFFERING!

Never underestimate the lengths a person will go to in order to relieve unending severe pain!

We will vote for those who speak out & stand WITH us!

While we are glad everyone is talking about mental health & addiction, we represent a DIFFERENT group.
All diseases, conditions, and patients deserve to be treated individually & equally! The #OneSizeFitsAll approach to treating pain is causing☝️death, suffering, & ODs!

#SuicideDue2Pain is increasing, suffering across America is increasing, & MOST importantly - #PainPatientsVote!
