I hope alot of us will consider taking a moment to send your letter if you follow this link it only took about five minutes to do they just have you answer a few questions then hit a link to send it. They also have a section where you can write a person note of why you feel this bill is important and needs to be passed. This is what I told them:

As a person with a chronic pain progressive illness called Reflex
Sympathetic Dystrophy I know from personal experience how horrible it
can be when medical professionals are unaware of proper treatment for
a chronic pain patient. It is unnecessary in this day and age that
people are forced to suffer in severe pain needlessly when they have
ways to help them.I really feel that we treat our animals better than
our chronic pain patients at times because of everyone worrying about
the wrong issues here. People need to start coming first here and the
suffering needs to stop it really isn't living when you go through
life that way. It is just barely existing without any quality and
meaning left to your life that isn't right for any human being to live
through each day of their life. How would you like to awake after
sleeping if you were lucky enough to sleep that night to face yet
another day of endless pain and every day of your life is this way
24/7 that is life with a chronic pain illness it is really rough to
say the least. That is why this bill is so important any bill that
raises awareness which this one will and helps to improve daily life
for people with chronic pain is sorely needed at this time and way
past due.

Sincerely,
Robyn King

Anyway I thought you should all know about this and have the opportunity to respond too and hopefully with enough of us showing support there can be change and improvement for all of us.

Love,

Robyn
