“I live with chronic pain because I’m unable to afford the medications I need. Last year, I developed constant and severe pain that required analgesic suppositories to control. I only receive $840 per month from Social Security — there was no way I could afford either prescription. I still haven’t been able to relieve my pain in an effective and inexpensive way. The pain comes and goes, and it can get quite intense. I was a psychiatric nurse before I retired, and I’ve seen the prices of drugs — both mine and my patients’ — rise over the years.”
