Chronic pain effects millions each year. Chronic pain has massive links between addiction, mass pharmaceuticals, and the creation of a pill pushing generation. Here's our correlation between chronic pain, addiction, and pill pushing. I hope you gain something from it and continue making healthy choices my friends!
“Serious, chronic pain affects at least 116 million Americans each year, many of whom are inadequately treated by the health-care system, according to a new report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).”
Reflecting on my life and the issues that I’ve been dealt with my chronic health issues, I realize that life does involve a great amount of pain.
I can remember times when my liver wasn’t functioning correctly. It felt like someone was taking a hot searing knife, then jabbing it up through my kidneys and liver. Getting sick I can remember the taste of bile built up in the back of my throat. It really, really hurt!
There were times where I had no patience, no patience at all. Immediately: “Hello operator? I think my throats clos…!” and I hit the ground, bashing my head open. There was an extreme lack of sugar in my system putting me at risk with my heart, too! There was then an immense amount of anaphylaxis causing me to pass out, I hit my head on a leaning stove corner. Have you ever heard of: “right spot at the right time.” I just happened to be victim to this fate!
Counting back to my 18-½ birthday and throwing out my L4/L5 as it was helping feed my addiction to prescribed opiate medications. Adding pain on pain, the misery was chronic. Pain can be chronic. Sometimes it doesn’t go away when you want it to. Then, when you feel the slightest relief you begin to wonder… when will it come back? While this mindset was inducing panic attacks, it was hard to maintain a normal social order in my life.
Pain can cause you to do a lot of things that you didn’t think you could or would do. Pain also tests how long you can withhold or stand certain things, too. As pain being one of my biggest triggers, I just couldn’t hold back from impulses! The pain, it was so chronic, the pain just didn’t go away. The pain kept nagging and nagging, until it was all that I knew. Pain and panic. There was no time for patience!
This is pain and misery in its darkest form that only you personally can understand! An individualized pain all of my own. What do I do? This pain is almost making me feel like I’m switching back and forth between first and third person, sometimes it drives me nuts, and my mental illness creeps back in to put the icing on the cake!
Chronic pain can be almost poetic. This type of pain can sometimes like finding something beautiful out of its passion to destroy something so overwhelmingly powerful out of an act of love, compassion. This pain gives you all it has, and chronic pain is the gift that keeps on giving. Living, loving in a parasitic way where the gothic scenery can take over. Damn, Poe would be proud!
This type of pain can hook you, bait you, re-cast you and send you out to sea to find some “way” to cope with it while still entombing you. This may be one of the biggest pivotal points in this culture. Recognizing coping skills. Most want an easy fix? But, with something so hard, concrete, chronic as this type of pain, does a quick fix take care of something long term? Probably not, unless your breeding addictions.
To elaborate on the subject of breeding addictions I will take a campaign of the 11 largest drug companies, while comparing their net profits and importance to the economic stature of this society.
Let us take into account this reference from “DrugWatch”:
“The world’s 11 largest drug companies made a net profit of $711.4 billion from 2003 to 2012. Six of these companies are headquartered in the United Sates: Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Abbot Laboratories, Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Eli Lilly. In 2012 alone, the top 11 companies earned nearly $85 billion in net profits. According to IMS Health, a worldwide leader in health care research, the global market for pharmaceuticals is expected to top $1 trillion in sales by 2014.” http://tinyurl.com/nulk4qq
We certainly see some big names, like the Johnson & Johnson organization. These corporations are always going to feed the many mouths who rely on that quick relief. This isn’t fair for them to do! It’s like their pushing this on all of us?
It was also stated that from 1998 to 2013 big pharmacies spent nearly 2.7 billion dollars in lobbying expenses. So, to summarize: “THEY’RE IN IT FOR THE MONEY!” I knew they didn’t care about our health! This correlation goes on further, though! As these corporations change the views of legislation and policy passing, we see the rates of addiction skyrocket with the organizations massive contributions to lobbying and “swaying” politics go up. The pushing has begun!
We just answered our motive for ties between mass pharmaceuticals, capitalism, and chronic pain. It just takes a little bit of correlation to guide the way.
The pain is real, but does this really help? What if instead of spending 2.7 billion dollars for lobbying in efforts of making mass profit off of those who are truly suffering and in need of help, we spent 2.7 billion dollars in reformation and rehabilitation programs? Why does the policy have to be your policy? Is anyone man/woman enough to answer these questions? Are they responsible enough to deem their acts as profitable but the least bit moral? No! They’re a business!
Your money could be better spent shoving it somewhere else mass pharmaceuticals! A lot of people deal with pain, and the Mass Pharmaceuticals recognize it! It's a type of business that creates repeat customers, instead of rehab where it's the point to fix them! Thanks again for the exploitation, if I haven’t made myself abundantly clear, Mass Pharmaceuticals.
Dealing in the new era of pill pushing, the leading organizations of the world are now the main contributors to this dilemma. The power elite remains in control. They're best known for guiding and starting a “pill pusher” generation and breeding addiction through economy, politics, and capitalistic mindsets.
The organizations in charge are breeding the perfect codependency. Codependency connected through our misery that we all share in chronic pain, addiction, and reliance on a solution. Is there a solution? Probably not a fix all. But, mass pharmaceuticals are sure as heck not the answer! I’m jumping off mass pharmaceuticals bandwagon right now! Who’s with me?
There are 116 million fighting against chronic pain. Not all seek treatment. But, for those who do seek treatment be cautious of the pill pushing generation. You know your body best, so judge what you need, when you need it. Create a mindset that deals with “what is,” and not “what if’s.” Do the right thing for YOU, and that is all that you can do! Just, be the best you is all I am encouraging!
Be strong, as I accompany many along this journey of chronic pain and have had my fair share of pill pushers in my life, too! I hope everyone makes safe choices and knows that if it gets rough, it always gets better, too!
Chronic doesn’t mean unmanageable, it just means more managing, that’s all! Which responsibility isn’t a bad thing when it comes to your body and health! Management is a great thing!
So take in your surroundings, breath if you are dealing with this, and do what’s best for you! As, there is only one you and one I, I still assure I’m here through all of it, for you, with you!
