Here it is…
Note from Tim Bolen – Our newest writer, Jonelle Elgeway, is, due to personal experience (major injuries), an EXPERT on US Pain Management issues. Jonelle was on the 1996 Olympic Field Hockey Team. With the Opioid Crisis sweeping the nation I recruited Jonelle to give us an “Insiders View” of what’s happening. When I first read her draft article (below) I was astounded to find out how bad the OFFICIAL US Pain Management system really is. Jonelle is addressing Congress April 25th, 2018 on pain issues- Below is why she is doing that.
There is no playbook on what to do when your life is turned upside down and inside out from a life altering car accident or major health issue. YOU’RE SCARED!
And you would expect that living in the United States the healthcare system would be there to not only save your life, but give you effective treatments and medications.
The United States healthcare system STINKS! And WE need to change it!
One of the biggest current U.S. healthcare FAILS is the so called “Opioid Crisis.”
First off, the United States isn’t dealing with a prescription opioid crisis.
It’s not even a heroin crisis.
The United States is currently in an Illicitly Manufactured Fentanyl Crisis.
