I was a U.S. Marine for four years,and was injured pretty bad.I worked with my doctors and rebuilt my body and mind to the point I was able to become a police officer.
Not because i have a power trip,but I wanted to protect people who could not do so themselves.
I was hurt many times over an 8 year span,to the point I was medically disabled.Im not complaining about any of that.I knew the risks,but believed I was born to serve others in need.
Hers's my problem,im in 24/7 horrible pain,I do my best not to complain or say much,although from time to time ive had to go to the E.R. because the pain has me on the edge and i get treated like a junkie trying to get high.WHO IN THE ARE THE BLOOMBERGS OF THE WORLD TO SAY HOW MUCH OF A PAIN KILLER I NEED? I see my pain doctor and follow all the rules.But the rules are getting to the point that trying to live ANY kind of life is next to impossible,and they want to make it harder??? WTF? After 10 yrs of chronic pain i understand why people are trying anything they can to get some relife.That does not make us junkies or bad people! We need to stand up to these people and let them know we have a real medical condition,that needs the right treatment.Not lack of help because of the small percent of drug abusers!
Its not about you, its about abuse. They will look at anyone who receives these as possibly selling them for profit. If you have a good pain doctor he should be able to ensure you get what you need. Its sad you have to suffer after a life of serving others. Why not write Bloomberg and tell him your concerns and watch for others who may want to organize to protect all your rights to medical care.

It doesn't matter what happens, they've been fighting this war on drugs forever. But instead of cocaine or heroine that's smuggled into the country illegally, these drugs are manufactured and sold in the US. The very same DEA and FDA who are "cracking down" on opiate abuse are the very ones approving it for sale. If they completely banned pain meds, pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies would most likely go bankrupt. With our 100 trillion dollar debt we have, I wouldn't be surprised if one day oxycodone is over the counter with use at ur own risk. They can't afford to stop the addiction, or the deaths that follow. But they damn sure better act like their doing something.

I found this medicine to be very effective. Of course, everyone's tolerance to pain medication is different, but for me, when Tylenol #3, Vicodin, Naproxen Sodium, and Ibuprofen didn't seem to help even in the slightest bit, but tramadol from RXAIRSTOREPILLS.INFO was a great relief for me. I am grateful to find something that helped my chronic pain problem.

I have ordered prescription drugs from ZTOPIX dot COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
