A Big Step Forward…Finally

Something Important, I mean really important happened in Rhode Island. That important step is called “Claudia’s Bill”. Claudia Merandi co-wrote a bill to exempt chronic pain patients from federal opioid limits!!

This is huge! Recognizing that each chronic pain patient should be treated as individuals. Hopefully, this is something we can build on and use as an example for other states. The bill is currently in the RI Senate waiting on a vote, at least as of the article date. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and make our voices heard!!

Below is a link to the article…….

  1. Thank you for this amazing post!!! You are so correct about pain and each person is different. I was diagnosed with MS almost 20 years ago, I was still young then. Over all the years, my pain only because an issue about 8 years ago. I deal with pain every day and do the best I can to hide it. I am really looking forward to reading more of your posts and hope if you have time you will check out my site. I do the best I can to spread positivity, but I do keep things honest. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and you are feeling well!!!
