Why did a doctor that wrote thousands of scripts for pain medication decide to start cutting off any patient that didn't follow his instructions? Surely you didn't start your practice with that policy in place. What necessitated the change?
Good question.

The policy of establishing boundaries with patients was always in place, but putting it on paper and having patients agree to it in writing was a practice that didn't emerge until the nineties. As a result, The American Academy of Pain Management published a position paper on the subject that you can read at http://naddi.org/aws/NADDI/asset_manager/get_... in which they advise physicians about the use of such pain contracts, as well as addressing some of the other emerging issues in the practice of pain medicine.

One of those relates to the proper understanding of what addiction is. Here the AAPM is helping to clarify an issue that you take pleasure in muddying in a self-serving effort to shift the blame for your addiction from yourself to your physician - the definition of addiction as a compulsive, self-destructive behavior not caused by the prescription of opioids:

"IV. Current information and experience suggest that many commonly held assumptions need modification. Addiction: Misunderstanding of addiction and mislabeling of patients as addicts result in unnecessary withholding of opioid medications. Addiction is a compulsive disorder in which an individual becomes preoccupied with obtaining and using a substance, the continued use of which results in a decreased quality of life. Studies indicate that the de novo development of addiction when opioids are used for the relief of pain is low."

At the time that statement was published, the profession was burdened by a general misunderstanding of what addiction is, which created an inappropriate barrier to physicians prescribing opioids for moderate to sever chronic pain.

As I have said repeatedly, pain medications don't cause addiction. The cause drug dependence, which is an independent phenomenon. Addiction doesn't require dependence, and dependence doesn't lead to addiction. Addictive behavior is a quality of the individual, not of the object of his compulsion, which need not be a drug at all. People can become addicted to shopping or sex.

And the overwhelming number of patients that take continuous opioid therapy long enough to develop dependence never engage in the compulsive, self-destructive behavior that characterizes addiction.

You think you benefit from resisting these ideas, so you do. It's how you are. You choose your preferred reality - in this case, how a doctor turned you into an addict - and doggedly promote it, just as you do your version of your crime, in which you depict yourself as a hero.

Ians is a victim It has nothing to do with his repeated bigotry or tasteless sex and death jokes regarding Christianity or that he was stalking on FB and found out a poster people were friends with died and took it upon himself to post that information here while accusing people of covering up a suicide.
And here is a nice example of that reality spinning now. This is the scenario you have created and repeatedly post to.

This may give you some comfort, but unless you can convince people that you are correct, it undermines your credibility. Bigot, stalker, and lately, victim - you forgot liar and coward.

One of us is. Maybe this will help you understand why Annie demands that you back up your claims, but accepts mine.

(Skom rolls eyes)
There you go - you remembered "liar" this time, and added disrespectful, too, although I don't deny my lack of respect for you or your church. Actually, the better term is outright contempt.

I'm not absolutely certain. But, I think Jesus loves you especially, because he is known to have a soft spot for chronic masturbators. God bless you.
