Pain Warriors Movie Teaser/Trailer

PAIN WARRIORS tackles the other side of the OPIOID CRISIS ~ that of under treated pain patients and the slow death of compassion that surrounds them.

As a result, there have been a burgeoning number of suicides in the international pain community in recent months. My late wife Karen among them. Pain Warriors weaves together five stories, four of Chronic Pain patients (two that committed suicide from the pain) and one doctors that was punished for help his Chronic Pain patients.

Both Doctors and patients alike suffer~ when a “one size fits all” political strategy is implemented to end overdose deaths and addiction, without foresight to what happens on the other side of the equation.

Addiction and overdose deaths are serious issues that warrant being faced head on. Equally important but not addressed in any depth, are the lives of abandoned pain patients and the doctors treating them, left with limited options.

Legitimate , responsible patients are being denied treatments that in many cases, have been their only lifeline to some small moments of function and dignity in an otherwise bleak future.

Intractable pain is often a life- long condition. There are no known cures for many chronic pain conditions that cause severe loss of function, loss of jobs, community and dignity.

Chronic pain has the potential to become epidemic in proportion in our lifetime. Without timely education, strategies for treatment and financial planning for the millions who currently suffer from this disease, the cost to society has risen to billions annually in both Canada & the USA.

Reviews :

“I watched the video [the full movie]. What an eye opener! I’ve been lucky enough to have never had to deal with chronic pain. I feel for those who do. I hope this documentary helps them to get the care and medication that they need. It’s the abusers that ruin it for the ones who need it.”

“Such pain and difficulties, and expressed so powerfully. Your segments were very honest and striking. You're [Bob] very brave to show such vulnerability for the sake of sharing your knowledge with other people who are suffering.

I hope that the film helps some people who need to know they are not alone. Unfortunately, there didn't appear to be any resolution for them. Still, it's good to know there are people working on this and trying to be reasonable about treatments.”

“I just watched the documentary. It’s powerful, and brought me to tears several times, not only you telling of Karen’s suicide but the boy and his sister, Hunter and Willow. It’s humbling, what people get through, or don’t get through.

As an asthmatic, I have had a lifetime of a repetitive – but far from continuous, and not always particularly painful – condition. I do know how even the sheer persistence of the condition can wear you down; not just the condition but the persistence of the condition, making normal life difficult or impossible.

People who haven’t experienced it, themselves or second-hand, really don’t know how to understand it. For people who take normal health for granted, it may require a great effort of the imagination. This film may help some of them make that effort. Let’s hope so.”

“I am off from the first weekend of my show season and made the time to watch this. Wow, just wow! I have spent my whole life talking to people who have either physical or emotional pain. I know that if you just scratch the surface of someone who has a seemingly normal life, you will find a different story just waiting to be told. I didn't know it was soooo pervasive!

The idea that it is 100M Americans living with chronic pain is mind-boggling. The fact that each one of those touches at least a few other lives implies that the whole nation is dramatically impacted by chronic pain. I'm assuming that number represents physical pain and doesn't even touch the ones with issues like anxiety and depression…. which in my observation is pretty consuming these days as well….

I must admit, I cried numerous times during this video. The most during your segments, because I feel like I know a small part of you and what you have gone through….

Of course, all the stories are sad and tragic and American life and the medical community has let so many down…. is there a point of return?

Thank you for sharing this early with me. I hope of people see it after the festival seasons and awareness is raised. And maybe, just maybe, some doctors will examine their practices. And maybe, just maybe, families will stop avoiding 'the one' who always looks well, but is always having a health struggle and labeling it all in their minds….”

Updated index to add esoteric entries

I've had several pages on the site such as the ones on Time and Mediumship that could only be reached by direct URLs what I'd give out to people.

My fear was that posting such esoteric ideas might scare off potential employers. Today I decided that it might attract the correct employers, be bold, there is no 'box' in a Holographic Universe… Look me up if you need such a person on your team.

Filers vs Pilers

Filers Versus Pilers

Priority Interrupt by Steve Ciarcia

Circuit Cellar Magazine

http://www.circuitcellar.com

December 2005, Issue 185

“It's been a number of years since I talked about the myth of the paperless office and how we should all have one by now. It certainly hasn't happened in the Circuit Cellar. While I would swear that I don't print anywhere as much as I used to, the depth of the paper piled around my office certainly isn't less these days. Apparently, my addiction to ink-jet fumes and rolled cellulose isn't either.

I was surfing around the Internet recently when I came across an interesting theory that seems to describe my behavior pattern much better than my just being some scofflaw who can't seem to get with the program. If I were more paranoid, I would say it is a conspiracy, but there is a very adamant minority of people who are so hostile about cluttered desks that they think that anyone who piles paper is a lower life form.

Piles of empty Mountain Dew cans aside, virtually all office clutter is work-related. Nevertheless, too many managers treat paper clutter like it's piles of dirty socks or opened catsup packets. Advances in technology give added authority to their prejudice. Paper is old-fashioned and can't be networked. In their minds, a neat desk is the foundation of achievement. Therefore, people who have cluttered desks are unrepentant slobs who aren't working efficiently and should feel very guilty.

Unfortunately, the paperless office and black or white policy decisions often don't take into account how people work, or more importantly, how many of us think while we work. Why do we create piles, and why do we spread things around our desks when it's obvious that the computer sitting in the middle of all this mess has much greater resources to sort and find information?

Apparently, there is a theory that there is a distinction between 'imaginative knowledge', as used by a design engineer, and 'clerical knowledge', as used by a billing clerk. Their filing methods and how they generate clutter are directly associated with how they think.

Clerical people print information to execute a company function. Imaginative people print information to increase knowledge. The paper they generate helps them learn rather than simply being a means of data storage. An engineer will often print out and write comments on a datasheet simply because the process of note taking helps him learn. Like most notes, however, once they have served their purpose, they are rarely retrieved again from the pile.

Imaginative people spread stuff all over the place as a physical representation of how they think, not because they are too inept to file it. In essence, the piles are temporary holding places for hot ideas and inputs that we either haven't categorized yet or haven't figured out how we'll use yet. Without categorization, there is no way to file them. And by the time we do categorize them, often the goal for which we collected the pile in the first place has been achieved, so we can throw that whole pile in the wastebasket anyway.

Of course, this clutter-then-toss-it behavior pattern is very disconcerting to the clerical knowledge thinker. It's basically filers verses pilers. A filer gathers information and puts it away. A piler gathers information and puts it in various piles from the center of work focus outward. There are the in-process hot piles for immediate attention, the various warm piles for projects that are on the list or might be in short duration, and the cold piles for things that are done and should be archived or filed (wastebasket).

It's been 25 years since I worked in corporate America with its world of rules. Don't get me wrong, the Circuit Cellar isn't some disaster area to be salvaged only with a local landfill permit. In the world of engineer workplaces, I think it's actually quite neat but there are those piles. ;-)

I've never felt guilty about my horizontal filing methods, and I am happy that I don't have to answer to others regarding it. In retrospect, I never quite understood the psychology of it, but I can immediately identify with using hot, warm, and cold as the only filing criteria. In my mind, filers go overboard. They are so wrapped up in the information system that they file too much, and when they search for something they either forget how they filed it or get back too much extraneous information.

Unfortunately, for many working engineers, clerical knowledge managers get to set the rules. While it's not pretty, piling provides somewhat ready access to current materials as well as providing a ready reminder about the in-process tasks and those still on the list. By forcing imaginative people to follow ridiculous rules in order to strive for the paperless (or less paper) office, they don't realize that there is a greater consequence. When you mess with people's desktops, you mess with how they think.”
