I have missed writing, but when I am doing advocacy work, I seem to fall in head first and get lost. It seems like everything is urgent because it takes so long to finally see the results of your hard work. You can hardly tell that you are making any difference. It really is hard work to go in with credible information. I applaud anyone that has made the trip to visit their elected officials and given them an education on what the chronic pain community is going through these days.
I have taken to twitter encouraging everyone in the chronic pain community to get their voices heard by reaching out to their legislators. I had a few people that said they were too scared to speak out because of retribution, ie: they will lose access to the small amount of medicine that they need to be able to function.
