My pain level was so high, I was wishing I had *safe* access to an emergency room where I wouldn’t be labeled as “drug-seeking” & discharged in worse condition. But I don’t, because chronic pain patients aren’t treated with respect or dignity.
So instead, I tried to watch the debate, as a distraction, in between pain so intense it was making me vomit and doing breathing exercises so I wouldn’t pass out.
I couldn’t watch the debate. The moving background made it inaccessible.
