New York City Emergency Rooms To Restrict Painkiller Prescriptions

New York City Emergency Rooms To Restrict Painkiller Prescriptions

Commented Jan 13, 2013 at 11:24:18 in New York

“Well now I wouldnt say that all people become addicted to these drugs, I for one have been taking hydrocodone for almost 4 yrs now. I broke my neck and back in an accident and believe me Ultram, Tramadol, do not even touch the pain I live with each day.I had a fusion of my neck at c5-c7. and the pain does not stop. I even went for pain management and that didnt work. Last yr I ruptured my bicep and tendon in my arm and still take the hydro's. my script is for 2 every 4 hrs for the pain. I take 2 once a day at night just for the relief of the pain. I am not addicted, I dont go out and rob stores, I dont go to the ER when my script runs out. I have to go back to my primary care Dr. and he evaluates me and then writes the script.”

“Hester is telling the truth, the shows producers were here in NY and were talking about doing a "storage wars NY" they spoke to a few of us about joining the show, due to the fact that we have been buying storage units for more than 20 yrs. They went on to tell us that what is in the unit was put there by the production staff, and we were to bid on the unit. When and if we won, we would take the items to be appraised and then at the end of the show we were to give the items back to the production staff and the way they got away with it was that they were paying you a nice salary to be on the show week after week. They felt as though that justified any good finds in a unit.”

“I am more surprised that Dave Hester is suing A&E.
I do find the show entertaining. However, life is unscripted, reality shows are not.
Of course finding out the wizard behind the curtain is a little disappointing, I do not find it to be such a buzz kill. I did find it amusing, in one respect, to see how they made a "profit" on the appraisal not on what was actually sold, lol.

Even though the situation may be scripted, I really would like everyone to be aware, these people are NOT actors. (Since Kim Kardashian believes she is some sort of actress because she is on a reality show)”

“and people wonder why cops are hated so much, and to settle for 300 grand thats a slap in the face, I hope this guy tells all who the lawyer was if he had one, so no one goes to him. that assole sgt should be fired along with the rest of them. geezzz I got hurt while i was at home depot picking up material and i got 3.5 mil from them, this guy should have gotten millions and millions and it should have come from the cops themselves, take their cars, take their homes, take their pensions, if they are gonna do that to people make them pay”

“how are they crooks? did they force people to come into their pawn shop to sell items? NO I own a Pawn shop and I have never been told I was a crook.Ive never stood out in front of my shop and forced people to come in and sell me their things. It was their choice to sell what items they have. I pay a fair price for things, but remember just like any business, i have to make a profit also. So if you come in and want to sell me something and then I turn around and make a profit from it im a crook?”

“I had my mortgage through BOA and wanted to shop around for a lower interest rate. I called another bank and was working with them to refinance my mortgage with the new bank. all was good until BOA decieded to put a red flag on my credit saying I was behind on my mortgage by 6 months when In fact my payments were up to date. The new bank I was going to called me and told me they could not refinance my home because they just that day pulled another credit report and it showed I was behind on my mortgage. I called several people to tell them what was going on and got nowhere. BOA's collection office would call me 4 to 5 times a day for 30 days straight asking for their money, I kept telling them I dont owe 6 months back payments, they insisted I did, I then took my papers to the local BOA bank to prove that It was paid. BUT they never took the neg. off my credit report...BUT.......they said this..." If you refinance your home with us we will take it off your report and give you your good credit back." Bull...t I refinanced throught the home modifaction program through the govt. If anyone has accounts at BOA I feel sorry for you.”

“The thing here is this, ALL cops tend to accuse the first Black man available and they refuse to look any further, its always a rush to judgement and an innocent man dies because they all rushed to judgement. When will cops in america really start to investigate what happens instead of just grabbing the first black man they see. My father was a cop all his life and wanted us sons to follow his footsteps, I couldnt, I couldnt live with myself knowing that there was or is another person out there that did this crime and is laughing that another mans life was taken. and if im correct every freaking cop in the Savannah dept was high fiving each other and then having drinks to celebrate that this man was killed and believe me they didnt care he was innocent according to them another N....r was killed. and the cops wonder why people dont trust them. like i said my father was a cop and I still dont trust him aqnd hes retired.”

“What the Social Security Admin needs to do is stop handing out money to people that claim they are disabled but still work. I know a guy who collects 1,100 a month from SS hes 27 yrs old and tells SS he cant work because of a rod in his back, but get this...he works as a carpet installer and does hardwood floors. Those rolls of carpet weigh around 200lbs and he carries it by himself. Last yr he made over 85,000 plus another 12,000 from SS. Then get this,,,he collects another 400.00 a month for his three kids from SS. and the worst part of it is that his kids have lived with the mother for the past 2 yrs but he has their money direct deposited into his account.I contacted SS and they told me that he is allowed to work 7 months of the yr making UNLIMITED pay. Sorry that doesnt cut it with me, Im on SS im 60 yrs old and I am disabled with only one arm, my back is fused from breaking it and my neck is fused from breaking that in an accident. and I get S--t from SS, and the govt wants to cut my money? while this guy makes over 100 grand a yr off of SS and his work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

“You story doesn't pass the smell test, No one is allowed to make unlimited outside pay on Social Security till you are 70, if you are under 65 you can earn up to $14,160 a year. If you are 65 to 69 years old you can earn up to $37,680 a year.”
