Great resource for doctors

Well put podcast for drs resource I’ve really enjoyed all of it, succinct enough to be very useful well done team

Lilyak ,

What about the people who’ve tried everything else?

What if you’ve done it all and you have a painful, degenerative disease and you meditate and exercise and do physical therapy? It’s INSULTING that you think teaching s patient a “pain model” and suddenly their pain is cured. Sarah Fowler is one patient. A young person. She didn’t know better. What about the patients for whom opioids allow them to live, work, socialise, have a semblance of a life? How dare you assume that all chronic pain is psychological, or not that severe to require opioids, or just an uneducated view. You have done a great disservice to the minority of patients who rely on opioids. And you are ruining lives. Examine the evidence. There is none. This is a travesty. Opioids are safe and appropriate fir some patients and if you can’t tell the difference between people who benefit from opioids and people who have mild / mod pain and don’t need opioids and people who are drug seeking, you don’t deserve your medical licence. Stop harming those who live with severe, daily pain. Stop it!
