Finally, video interviews of Siobhan Reynolds (1961-2011,) myself, and combat veteran and chronic pain patient James Fernandez (1953-2012.) Also available is the Pain Relief Network’s signature documentary, “The Chilling Effect – Pain Patients in the War on Drugs.” (Click ‘Playlist’ in upper left corner after starting the video player.)

NOTE: As of mid January, 2013, this site is closed to new Comments. There is a tremendous amount of real experience in many Comments; they remain readable as a testimonial to the ongoing, needless, government imposed, suffering that is the ‘pain crisis in America.’

This “HOME” page can be used as a top level index, or Table of Contents, for the site. See the Header and Sidebar for access to pretty much everything – full text articles, collections or ‘Libraries,’ etc.

Or just use the search box in the upper right corner of every blog page. Prefer to browse? You can start with links on the The Legacy Library page, for that old-skool web feel. ~smile~

Thank you for caring. There is a lot of good and important information here, all for free and nothing for sale. I hope in a small way this effort aids you in finding the understanding you seek.

Peace, ..alex…


  1. I can’t believe I found a site that understands what I am going through! I was in pain management for a number of years until last summer, when my Dr. retired (or was made to retire). Since then, I have been struggling to find someone to take over my care. I have even had Drs. flat out tell me that they refuse to take his patients. What? I live in Indianapolis, IN and I have been suffering a great deal. I’m a mess and at the end of my rope. I can’t sleep and my pain is unbearable. I need help.
