I wasn't sure I would like this book, since I've been dealing with chronic pain for almost 3 years now. The stigma associated with chronic pain and pain management is horrible. I have people in my family that are addicted to opioids and their stories are similar to one of the football players mentioned in the book. I understand the need to get the opiate issue under control, but at the same time, it makes it difficult for those of us with chronic pain who aren't abusing the medication.

“Opioid crisis” has become a fear driven media and DEA hysteria driving the treatment of patients in chronic pain. Cancer patients do not face the stigma that chronic pain patients face thus they are allowed whatever medications will relieve their suffering. Pain caused by torture, broken bones, nerve injuries, migraines, cancer, traumatic injury or disc disease is PAIN. Pain is not divisible into acceptable cancer pain versus all other unacceptable pain.
This book makes this point painfully clear.
