Annie --

I can't recommend a doctor (I don't know Baltimore at all) but I wanted to tell you I'm sorry you're having so much trouble. Where were you living before, and what have you been taking? Also, would you be willing to travel a bit, and if so how far?

> These doctors ought to be ashamed of their selves. They lobby to keep the prescription privilege theirs, and then they put up so many hurdles for us to get the medications, leaving many people to unnecessarily suffer greatly and legally extorting thousands of dollars in the process.

I doubt that psychologists would be any better if they could prescribe meds, but you're right -- it's as if they think that suicide is preferable to the possibility that someone might get high. There are more and more people coming out of the woodwork who find that only opioids help with their depression and who've realized that they have a right to effective treatment. Doctors who deny it to them are potentially forcing them to try to get drugs on the street. It's time to trash the notion that doctors know what a patient's best interest is better than the patient does.
