It’s no secret that Bethenny Frankel‘s life has been personally impacted by prescription drugs.
In August, Bethenny’s on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields died of a prescription drug overdose.
Now the Real Housewives of New York star is making her opinion on prescription drugs known loud and clear.
In a now-deleted tweet, Bethenny shared her very strong opinion on the prescription drug epidemic.
“So, @MacMiller is dead. Let’s keep prescribing poison when we have a toothache,” Bethenny tweeted on September 7th.
While Bethenny is entitled to her opinion some fans who suffer from chronic pain didn’t agree with her sentiment.
Some asked Bethenny to show compassion for chronic pain suffers and pointed out that prescription pain meds often give people the relief they need to live their lives normally.
I understand Bethenny’s strong point of view but I also know many who suffer terribly day to day and without prescription pain medicine their quality of life would even more diminished. However, I do believe there is an epidemic and think something needs to change.
