When did we get to be so cruel?? Years and years ago, I don’t remember others condemning a person for being sick.
It seems that now, if someone is in need of pain relief, AUTOMATICALLY ..every single spectacle starts thinking ..YUP! Narcotics! They immediately look down on the person, disregarding that here lies a suffering HUMAN BEING in front of THEM.
It almost feels as if we aren’t human anymore. Or it’s like our surroundings have gotten so incredibly desensitized like the phones and computers we are typing away on for countless hours a day.
Something came to mind tho..how twisted our society is regarding a person who may suffer from an accident DISABLED in CHRONIC PAIN PERMANENTLY. So many get treated like they have a dependency or addiction. REGARDLESS, of what we decide to take for PAIN, it is a DISGRACE that we are put in the same category as drug addicts. No disrespect to any person who has an addiction but try to put yourself in our shoes.
Can you imagine, you get in a horrific accident almost die recover but are debilitated and require medication or herbs to make your life bearable, but now you are being labeled a drug addict because you simply take herbs or medication!
This is not ok. It’s GOT TO STOP. Also, I don’t believe in stigma and shaming a person who does actually take pain pills to get ‘high’. Of course, it does make me mad because of the significant damage they have made for pain patients but I understand that they have underlying issues driving them, so I don’t hold it against them.
It’s not OK to categorize someone as weak or unable to cope because they take prescription medication or herbal supplements to help with them with their health conditions. We ARE coping and we ARE succeeding in life because we ARE taking care of OURSELVES.
Regarding Kratom, Mitragyna Speciosa please do not condemn this plant unless you’ve actually tried it for yourself. That is something else that is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE. So many people including the FDA/DEA and media condemn Kratom when they haven’t even tried it. It’s WRONG and it’s complete slander on their part. LIES are being told when someone states Kratom causes hallucinations and a high when the person hasn’t even ever ingested it?!?! <<<HELLO>>>Do your research PLEASE… before you discourage yourself or someone else, who could desperately be saved by this wonderful herb.
