You've taken away my rheumatologist's ability to prescribe painkiller medicine for my chronic painful condition and it's infuriating - I will not go to the pain clinic ever again - they failed me 20 years ago before my hysterectomy and 10 years ago when I was diagnosed with RA - you've hobbled my doctor from providing the care that she and I decide on together. You're punishing the people who need pain meds because of a bunch of people who have developed addictions
