I was denied opiates when I had crippling daily 10/10 pain [blacking out became common] due to my age
I was denied opiates when I had multiple dislocations because they don't want me to get addicted to it
I was cut off from opiates after a botched surgery. my pain was still severe but I was told I should be healed by then [I wasn't, due to eds] so I don't get any more pain meds
I was denied opiates when my foot was broken in so many places it couldn't be counted

I'm so dissapointed in the doc who has been my best PCP for years #NEISvoid #DisabilityTwitter #EhlersDanlosSyndrome I have cci and it got significantly worse the last 2 months. I've tried to deal with it myself, but its been a major issue for pain, mobility & neuro symptoms #eds that nothing helps. we changed from a pain patch to an injection because it give me more relief, but my symptoms persist & cause serious limitations i didn't have before. my PCP told me I had to do PT to get scans. I said okay, because this has happened before. I need 6 weeks

if @joerogan cared about his followers he would stop spreading vax misinformation, minimizing the impact of the pandemic, and promoting ivermectin. he took tons of stuff when he got covid including monoclonal antibodies but doesn't think it helped at all? ivermectin was all that helped according to him. @joerogan also conveniently left out a lot about the safety of the vax & how herd immunity works. vax if high risk. don't if not he says. well vaxes aren't as effective for high risk people & if youre at risk+cant get vaxed u must rely on herd immunity

A4: when it comes to info people have id say I want chronic illness/disability education to start young. I had no idea I was a spoonie when I was young so I never asked for help, harming my health greatly. I also got a lot of conflicting info about eds from doctors #SpoonieChat most of the info I got before I found my most knowledgeable doctors was from others with ehlers danlos & social media. I want docs to have/give up to date+standardized info on eds & similar conditions. I want docs to stop perpetuating harmful ableist stereotypes of disability too

whenever I ask mom to make the lights dimmer she complains being in low light will give her a headache-I ask for low light as light causes headaches/migraines/sensory overload/general asd burnout/eye pain long covid&all this triggers the pain/nausea/fatigue from other conditions I don't want to cause anybody with any condition pain so I try to compromise. its very difficult I can't have no light [ideal & sometimes necessary for me] but I have empathy so I don't complain about her needs.

part 5: after a bit of work I was able to transfer my perscription to a Walmart in another town. I know if I stayed with @Walgreens I would continue to have late meds, get excuses, and have my health decline. I knew id continue to go to the ER [high risk during covid] due to this part 4: they are still messing up! they deleted my other perscription thinking it was a duplicate [it wasnt] and now 9 days after my original order & blaming everything on the supplier decided to change supplies and say it will come Monday. its a bit late now isnt it?

#SpoonieChat do you say you are chronically ill, disabled, or both? why? whats the difference? to me chronic illness is any chronic health condition. it doesnt have to cause discomfort or interfere with your life #NEISvoid #DisabilityTwitter #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonie disability is when you have a permanent or temporary condition that negatively impacts how you interact with your environment. it can be acquired or congenital- and dynamic, stable, or progressive in presentation. there are many models of disability: mainly the social and medical

update on my Walgreens problem @WalgreensP a med that I need daily to stay out of the hospital has been ordered every day since last Friday. they told us theyd call with news & never did multiple times. never accepted responsibility either #NEISvoid #SpoonieIssues #EDSstruggles I'm so mad that this isn't even the first time this has happened. Walgreens knows that these meds are rare & often take a long time to come, but usually order them the day they should arrive. they never call back, often have us come in when meds aren't ready, and make excuses
