    Opioid medications were ripped from me during this insane war on pain patients over 3 years ago. Dr. wanted me to switch from low dose oxycodone to suboxone and when I refused he cut me off from everything including my anti-anxiety medications that I had been on prn since childhood! Along with the loss of my pain medication was the loss of my functioning and worsening of pain to the point that I have become homebound and sometimes bedbound 24/7. What has been done by the medical community to pain patients is unforgivable and hard to believe something so inhumane could happen in the greatest Country in the world. What has happened to US!
