Many people in pain want to share their story, and they ask me for help in doing so. Sometimes, I mention people who are in pain when I am speaking in public or talking with the media. Occasionally, someone tells me a story that is so poignant and eloquent that, with permission, I publish it.

Some time ago, someone posted an article written by a doctor, stating that only people with addictive personalities, such as those with abuse in their backgrounds, get addicted to pain meds. It also had statistics about the low percentage of actual addicts compared to people who use pain meds responsibly. Does anyone know the article I'm talking about and, if so, could you repost it? It was along the lines, when I read it, as, "Okay, this doctor is finally catching up to what drug counselors and therapists have known for years."
