Nova Scotia needs family doctors

Posted By on Fri, Nov 17, 2017 at 9:29 AM

To the NS Government: I'm sorry that I have a disability that require's opioids and I'm sorry I need a family doctor to fill my prescription, my doctor retired and I have been looking for well over a year now. With  massage therapy and medication that I cut myself down on before the new opioid laws even took effect and with the help of my therapy I would be able to work again and finally get off of assistance! Oh by the way  my massage therapy is free thanks to a good friend so assistance and the good tax payers of Nova Scotia do not and still do not have to pay for it. I am now back to where I started: in pain, not being able to function, still on assistance, and  a drain on the system. If only there were more family doctors to help people out so they can get off of assistance.

Disgusted! Why even try when you'll end up back where you started?! —Sick in Nova Scotia
