Post The "new" rules are for your safety and privacy.

[B]You can post and get replies and support from your cyber friends, as usual.[/B]

[B]The rules are for your own protection.[/B] Remember that all posts go onto search engines and are completely traceable.

[B]The rules being enforced are Law.[/B]
They are not invented by this website.

[U]What may no longer be done here is to jeopardize safety and privacy by asking for or giving prescription pain med advice to try to get past your doctors or the DEA.[/U]

Unfortunately, some people were asking for medical advice that only their own physician is legally allowed to prescribe, by asking what type of med they should use, or what dose to take, or how to get higher doses out of meds, or how to get meds without doctor prescription, or posting that they got meds from other people and want to know how to use them.

[U]This activity is illegal and the discussion was always inappropriate use of the website.[/U]

[B]The website is for you to give each other support[/B]: [U]NOT to find ways to get around the law.[/U]

[B]This site does not knowingly allow discussion of illegal activity.[/B] Therefore, [U]please know that you may discuss your pain and provide encouragement as long as it is legal activity and not self-medicating[/U].

Over the counter meds are legally self-medication, and their use/doses, etc. may be discussed.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
