Welcome to the “AMERICAN AGONY” Blog Tour! @BorelMedWriter @4WillsPub

From Dr. Helen Borel:

I can’t thank my host enough for allowing me to share some very surprising information. Everyone knows that ethical pharmaceutical companies research, develop, and market our prescription drugs. They tame diabetes, halt epileptic seizures, cure bacterial infections, prevent heart attacks and strokes, and control the troubling mood swings of bipolar disorder. In many ways, pharma manufacturers are literally life savers.

There is one other imperative class of drugs which, also under the purest of scientific processes, is manufactured for patients suffering various kinds and levels of pain. These are the opiates, morphine and codeine, and their analogs (aka their chemical spinoffs), referred to as opioids. These include fentanyl patches, hydrocodone, and analogous prescription narcotics. OxyContin (R) (oxycodone HCl), yet another opioid brand, has been targeted for extinction, it seems, by ill-motivated Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and Department of Justice (DOJ) operatives.  But that’s a subject for another discussion and another revealing blog-tour visit.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to what I call “THE LEGAL MORPHINE.”  Government interference with legitimate medical prescriptions for pain is forcing patients into detox facilities where illicit addicts are put on Suboxone (R) (buprenorphine/naloxone).  That’s a morphine paradoxically being used, supposedly, to get addicts off heroin and other illicit narcotics.  It’s an opiate to treat an opiate or opioid addiction? Thus, “detoxed” addicts are now are on Suboxone (R) for life. It has been reported that many on the Suboxone (R) regimen revert to their illicits of choice, while others sell this “bupe,” as it’s known in the streets, to other addicts. Not only that, pain specialists and pain patients attest to the generally poor ability of Suboxone (R) to provide analgesia.  Could it be that the naloxone component of the formulation cancels out any possible pain relief extant in buprenorphine, the morphine component? Duh!

In American AGONY: The Opioid War Against Patients in Pain, published by Fresh Ink Group, I discuss this conundrum in depth in Section VI, Chapter Twenty, “The Suboxone Hoax.”  I unravel for readers the financial motivations in labelling as “addicts” patients who are nothing of the kind.  Instead, many are pain patients victimized by a dazzling cornucopia of addiction$ indu$try largesse—the beneficiaries of which are neither genuine illicit addicts nor patients with varied painful conditions.

The financial beneficiaries are Reckitt Benckiser (parent of Indivior, the manufacturer of Suboxone (R) ); the reaping-multi-million$ “addiction treatment” facilities; former politicians, now mysteriously transformed into “advisors” to those centers; and some psychiatrists, members of an “anti-opioid” organization that is, nonsensically, advocating for “The Legal Morphine” from which they get rich. Having spent my life writing and publishing about medical science and pharmaceuticals, I felt compelled to delve deeply into these issues.  As a registered nurse, I’ve seen and treated all kinds of suffering, and I feel devastated about the dual epidemics of untreated pain of millions and the suicides of thousands due to abrupt denial of well-working prescription opioids. It’s a lie that prescription opioids relate to illicit street drugs, that pain patients are merely “craving addicts,” that a morphine like the buprenorphine in Suboxone (R) is going to reverse addicts’ cravings. It’s a lie that all pain patients can derive sufficient analgesic benefit from a morphine cut with a morphine antagonist.

Thank you for allowing me to share this information from my book, written for the many who it can help and to awaken government disruptors of normal opioid prescribing for pain. Please spread the word and share my trailer.

Welcome to Part 2 of “THE MEREST LOSS” Blog Tour! @StevenNeil12 @4WillsPub #RRBC

I’m excited to welcome part 2 of “THE MEREST LOSS” Blog Tour! @StevenNeil12 @4WillsPub #RRBC.

 

Steven Neil header

 

Please join me to meet Steven Neil, the author of THE MEREST LOSS, and let me introduce you to his book.

 

First, let’s get to know Steven Neil and his writing Influences.

1. What has influenced you as a writer?

I am influenced by all the great writers of all the great books I have ever read. To

name just a few: The Remains of the Day, Kazuo Ishiguro; Tess of the D’Urbervilles,

Thomas Hardy; The Catcher in the Rye, J.D.Salinger; Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier;

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Le Grand Meaulnes, Alain-Fournier. Amongst

contemporary writers Wolf Hall, Hilary Mantel has influenced my writing style the

most.

2. What is the first book you remember reading?

Anna Sewell: Black Beauty

3. What are your favorite books?

I give different answers at different times! All the books in the Palliser series and

Barchester Chronicles series by Anthony Trollope. To my mind he is the greatest of

the great nineteenth century English writers.

4. Who has influenced you as a writer?

All the books and writers I have mentioned and my Open University writing tutor

Judith Allnatt, who I credit with teaching me the craft of writing.

5. Are there any authors you try to emulate?

I haven’t consciously tried to do this, but I’m flattered when reviewers compare The

Merest Loss to a ‘classic nineteenth century’ novel.

6. What genres do you like to read?

I read many genres, but I find I am drawn back to the nineteenth century more and

more. I like a good story well told and I find the pyrotechnics of many contemporary

writers off putting.

7. Is this the same as the genre you write in?

In a way, yes. I write historical fiction set in the Victorian era.

8. What point of view do you like to write from?

I like the immediacy of first-person narration but I am most comfortable with

omniscient third person writing.

9. What tense do you like to write in?

I particularly like to read the present tense and I like to write that way too.

10. What made you write?

My wife inspired me to write, having found a short I wrote many years ago, aged 17.

She encouraged me to enroll in a creative writing course. This turned into an Open

University degree in English Literature, then a Master’s degree in Creative Writing

and eventually led to my debut novel, The Merest Loss.

Blurb:

Becoming the grandmother of twins changed Harriet Hodgson and altered her life course. According to Hodgson, we live in a fast-paced, complex time, a time when too many grandchildren are victims of bullying, Internet scams, and sexual abuse. Hodgson believes that grandmothers are needed today more than any other time in history.

“Grandmas can’t be passive,” she declares. “Every grandma has the power to protect and guide her grandchildren and needs to tap this power.”

This narrative weaves Hodgson’s personal story with research findings. It’s packed with ideas for helping grandchildren. Hodgson’s age, child development degree, life experience, teaching experience, witness to history, and extensive research converge to make this an inspiring read. Working individually and together, grandmas are changing the world.

“The Grandma Force is about the power of love and the power of one.” Hodgson says. “One-by-one, grandmas are standing up for grandchildren and creating a hopeful future for them.”
