Rebecca Stanfel is a Sarc Fighter who also happens to be a wonderful writer -- to the point that national publications share her work. She recently published a blog in the Huffington Post, where she talked about the pain from Sarcoidosis that was so bad, only opioids would give her relief. In a world where we now often shudder at the mention of these addictive drugs, Stanfel wrote that they were her only path forward and that they serve a necessary purpose in certain situations -- including hers.
That is not to say it wasn't a struggle or that it was easy to wean herself from the medication. It wasn't. But in her writings, and during the discussion on the podcast she talks about how she fought to free herself from the drugs while still dealing with sarcoidosis.
