I really love the statement that “get enough sleep” will solve chronic pain.

Umm….yeah. Let’s just pause for a minute with THAT nugget.

On what planet, exactly, do ‘researchers’ find these helpful doctors who know anything about such studies and human beings on? It’s my perpetual experience that no matter what I tell the doctor, they only hear what they want to hear and only a very few (usually who specialize in collecting money for ignoring your real experiences and sending you on your way) ever stop and listen long enough to understand that what you are telling them is a real thing, no matter how bizarre it sounds to their drug-addled perspective.

People wonder why science is being dumped on the side of the road by the public. It’s because scientists are such self-centered, bubble-headed bloody morons and their work rarely ever sees the light of actual patients after the blackout curtains of insurance, ego and obfuscation by lawyers of the AMA get shut tight.

I must be a masochist. That’s why I still click on these articles: to pile frustration on top of my physical pain and remind me how rapacious our System of systems really is.
