My name is Debra Morgan. I was born in Colorado and now live in Oregon. I am 55, married have 2 children, a daughter and a son and 6 grandchildren. I am a Fibromyalgia survivor I do not use that word lightly and knowing that people I know and love now or have died from this disease are reasons enough for me. I was diagnosed with CFS in 1994 and Fibromyalgia along with IC in 2005.
My Opioid abuse started after I had surgery that kept me on Pain pills for over a month. I had no idea that was going to be an issue nor had I abused them at the time.
This is part of my story and the relevance of what is happening today with the drug and Opioid crisis we are facing in the US and Other Countries.
