I too am a RN who suffers from chronic pain. Thank you for taking the time to post here. If u could ask one favor from you it would be to keep advocating for us, the chronic pain sufferers. The daily battle of pain, the lost quality of life, the fear of losing the right to pain mgmt because of physicians who have egos, the judgemental looks, the stress it puts on your loved ones, the cost of lost work or loosing the ability to work period. Please continue to be our voice. Post frequently. I have yet to come across ONE compassionate dr. Nurse or physician staff who treats me like I am a real patient. They all treat pain sufferes the same. It's awful.
