Opioid Prescriptions in Canada Going Up
In an article titled Opioid prescriptions in Canada on the rise over last 5 years on the CBC, seniors hold the highest risks of complications with these type of medications. ” Seniors are at greater risk for opioid-related harms due to several factors, including age-related changes in drug absorption and metabolism, and cognitive changes that may increase the risk of accidental drug poisoning.” On the positive side of things, at least Fentanyl prescriptions were down by almost 7 percent.
Loss of a Friend Since Childhood
It was a sad week with the loss of a long time friend of family, a local guy that I had known since I was a kid. I, like many in our community, will be attending funeral services on Friday. I was fortunate enough to see him just days before his departure of from our lives, and I’m glad I was able to have had him around because life was always more interesting with him in your company. Trevor, I will miss you. It was better to have you in our lives than to go on without you. Thank you for being with us all.
I moved to Cold Lake Chiropractic in hopes I could bring in more clients on a regular basis, which it did help but was not enough to save me working massage full time. I give thanks to Dr. Kopala for giving me the opportunity to work at his clinic, it was a great place to work and I wish it things were busier that I could have stayed.
That being said, I’ve been in talks with Brenden at Motion in Sync to use a room on a per use basis so that I can continue serving clients in Cold Lake. If it weren’t for him I may not have continued working massage at all.
