I'm now considered a criminal and an addict even with 10 years of medical history.I'm an LPN also, so my career is also jeopadized. I had been forced to illegally treat my own pain because my doctor refused to change med. even after repeatedly reporting it wasn't working the same anymore and I was needing more and more to control my pain and now I have to deal with this reputation. If I can get a doctor to even consider treating my pain it would be a miracle. I was even refused by a pain management center and was told no one will touch me with a 20 foot pole. I'm not sure how much longer I can manage or even if I want too. I have alot of resentment for the medical field at this point, and certainly no faith either. My only goal was to keep pain from controlling my life and support my family. Life is challenging daily and most of the time isn't worth living if I can't be comfortable and feel worthy and human.
