Your story is what I’ve tried to express so many times but have not said as well. My daughter is addicted to opioids because of her pre-existing mental problems. She tries to medicate away the pain of being her. She was forced from doctors prescribing her opioids to the street — where heroin is so much cheaper. Curtailing doctors’ ability to prescribe effective pain relief to those who need it and thinking that will curb drug addiction is ludicrous.
Thanks for saying so well what needs to be said.
