Earlier this week, I received a heartfelt email from a reader in North Carolina whose doctor was out of the country and was having an impossible time getting a prescription filled—and she was scared.
I decided to publish the letter because I assumed the experiences of patients around the country might be instructive to this reader.
It was amazing.
Here’s the story: A Chronic Pain Patient Is Looking for an Answer: Do You Have One?
In particular, I invited you to read the comments section—
Later this week, I received an email from the reader (whose name I withheld at my discretion).
She wanted to say thank you:
Here’s what she said.
First of all, let me say THANK YOU, to you and the wonderful women and men who took the time and great effort to write in about my desperate need for information.
When you published my story and questions to you, and I first opened up the National Pain Report to see if anyone had written in with any ideas on what to do, I was blown away. I was curled up with my mouth hanging open. I could hardly believe what it actually looked like up there, how you wrote it and introduced it, and the fact that someone wrote in to offer their help with their comment!
And then tons of people, hurting and suffering, full of wisdom, full of tangible things said to me by your readers, phone numbers, email addresses, where to go and who to reach out to.
The initial wave that hit me, was the one of Love. When that happened, I knew that It and its contents were orchestrated by my Father in Heaven. He uses His people in magnificent ways and before I go any farther, I have to say - I give all the glory, thanks and praise to Him.
Each and every person who took the time to read and to comment and to post links, you are awesome to me!
I thank you from the bottom of my heart lot!
I was able to get a 2 weeks supply of my medicines from their doctor who initially refused me. I have no idea how or why she was suddenly able to do this, as she first told me my contract was unbreakable between me and my doctor who is out of country.
I do hope that many others were able to get great answers for themselves too, by reading all the wonderful comments!
God bless you all.
