Prince was not addicted to pain medication. Prince had a medical problem: severe chronic pain, which is criminally mistreated. It is also a medical problem that is more likely to react to stigma and condescension, even dares with the moral character of the patient with chronic pain. Severe chronic pain remains the condition we treat by telling patients to simply lift or keep the upper lip stiff, or end up acting like a worm.
When someone dies from complications of the disease, because that is what chronic severe pain is, we react surprisingly, with compassion and anger over the fact that the patient died of a drug overdose. Some establishments take money out of our doubt about an overdose and medication and our interest in drugs. The 2009 reports revealed that Prince had chronic and debilitating pain. His friends reported that he was taking medications for severe chronic pain to try to control the constant and severe pain of damaged hips.
The alleged disagreement between the Prince’s conversion to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and their potential to accept a blood transfusion, should the need arise during hip replacement surgery, was addressed by vultures posing as whispers of journalists. The idea that Prince would abandon surgery to serve his faith granted to the underlying current that Prince was “strange.” however, some news channels report that Prince had double hip replacement surgery in 2010.
But it’s not just about how the media does not realize how severe chronic pain works. They are also ignoring the realities of the race’s impact on the maintenance of medicine. The element of the race must definitely be added to the mix. Prince was a black man with severe chronic pain. Strong racial disparities have been documented in the way doctors and other medical personnel responded to pain in the emergency room.
