This past week, I had the opportunity to have a small part of my story relating to prescription opiate addiction appear in The Globe & Mail. As usual, the opinions and comments I've received in response to the article "Number of opioid drug prescriptions in Canada skyrocketing" have been all over the map; from amazingly supportive, to ignorant and misinformed. This is certainly nothing new or unexpected for me, as it unfortunately still comes with the territory. Regardless, I wanted to take the time to touch on a few things that were not mentioned in The Globe & Mail article, as well as address some of the surrounding discussion.
