Who will lead the protest in Washington?

OK we hear all the stories about how people have lost loved ones to opioid overdoses. And I feel for these people. I'm sorry for them and the pain I know they must feel but what about the pain we feel. You never hear the stories from people like us who suffer each day with no relief in sight and don't suffer from cancer. I feel they hush us on purpose. Of course I'm also paranoid and I could be a tad bit wrong about them hushing us on purpose but think about why do we never hear our stories. Don't we count. I tell you I get terribly scared when I think about having to deal with the pain by sure will. Well I'm a weak willed person. Day after day of not being able to function. The only time I come close to any relief is when I lay down and be very still. Is this any kind of life. Do they even care and why not. They say people are dying of accidental overdoses and go from prescription pills to street drugs. Well are they so stupid that they can't see that that number will increase even more. Take everyone's pain pills away and most will hit the streets looking for what ever they can get their hands on for even just a few brief moment of relief. And not knowing anything about street drugs these are the ones who will accidentally overdose. So that number will rise also. Then lets talk about how they will spend all their money to buy these now illegal drugs. This may say these people are addicts. But hell no I'm not an addict. I take my meds as prescribed and I don't get any kind of high from them because it take every ounce of the drug to knock out the pain. But people are not made to suffer day in and day out. And if you are one who is strong enough to deal with pain without meds then I applaud you. Good for you. I say making people suffer with their chronic pain is just plain cruel. Ok I didn't mean to say all this. But if I knew there would be hundreds of us I would lead the way to Washington. I would use the last penny in my change jar. So who else would go? And who else is willing to lose their mind eventually from suffering every day.

ok @jonjon812 I think you should be in charge of the go fund me page. I'm still trying to come up with up an idea. Thinking about googling something like – Top investors in protest marchers.

I saw a CEO of a pharmaceutical company on CNBC earlier who said he thought the rest of the world was taking a free ride on the US because we do not negotiate drug prices on behalf of our citizens. No other country, many quite wealthy ones, allow for R & D recoupment from pharma companies and they insure that virtually every citizen have access to necessary drugs. I think that is something that this group of marchers should have as a plank in our platform.

To add fuel to the fire – big pharma gives lots of kick backs to doctors for pushing their drugs. So glad that Mayo doctors are not allowed to take money from pharmacy companies. Maybe prices would be less if there were no kick backs.
