I have been dealing with being treated horribly by doctors because I suffer from chronic pain! It's awful and certainally does not help in healing and a healthy attitude! I even had one doctor remark "I don't do chronic pain!"! I told her "lady, I wish I didn't do chronic pain either, but for me it is not a matter of choice!". I wanted to tell her to go out in the parking lot, get hit by a truck and tell me in 8 years if she "did chronic pain then!"! They act like you are lying just because you can't "see" where the pain is coming from! In 1999 I was hit by a truck as a pedestrian, it dislocated 2 cervical vertebrae, broke 2 ribs and fractured my left hip. The ER sent me home saying I was bruised and sprained. Then in 05 they found a brain tumor. None of these issues are visibly apparent. So because of that I am treated like they can't see anything wrong so I must not be in much if any pain! So does anyone else out there have to deal with the same issue? I must add that I have to use the county health care services. Now that I can no longer work...of course I do not have health insurance!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
