With Chronic Illness usually comes chronic pain.  There are many ways to deal with Pain but the most effective and immediate methods usually involve Narcotic Pain Medications.  However, the Medical Practice of Pain Management is extremely complex and Narcotics can sometimes create a chronic problem all unto itself as the Patient battles to stay within the confines of “Dependency” as opposed to “Addiction.”  This Video explores this difficult chronic reality through the personal experience of the Producer who has used these medications to treat Severe Crohn’s Disease for many years.

This is part of my “Two Minute Drill” Series of Healthcare Videos.  The phrase is taken from the NFL, i.e., US Professional Football, and refers to that intense time of the last 2 minutes of the end of the 1st Half, or of the Game, when teams use a no-nonsense carefully timed 2-Minute Drill to most efficiently move down the field to score points.  With Television Commercials, the 2-Minute Drill is often 10-15 minutes of “Real Time” and that affords me the ability to still use the phrase when my succinct Videos are sometimes 4 Minutes in length!  I hope you enjoy the Content and that it provides you with mental stimulation and creative inspiration.
