Mess without insurance are crazy expensive.
I think the fact that we don't have universal insurance is itself a medical condition.
Two depressed teen-agers out on a date shared a banana-prozac-split.
That's very funny and I'm sad to say probably very true.
Age sure can suck
I guess that says it all in is as few words as possible.
Those side-effects are scary as all get out. After The Hubby's last surgery they put him on anti-depressants and I read all the literature. I watched him like a hawk for weeks afterwards as I was scared. Nothing bad happened, but it can take years for the bad stuff to show up. It has helped him cope with his loss of mobility though.
I joke about anti-depressants but they do serve their purpose. I just think they are over prescribed, especially to kids.
Side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle soreness, and vision loss ... but thank god my headache's gone!
medicine costs are getting ridiculous
The fact that we have to pay for those ridiculous in this rich country is even more ridiculous.
It is disgusting the side effects of all this crap, I never ever take pills unless I absolutely and utterly have to. Herbs are much better, but they cost less so the drug companies will never let them out. Same with cancer, 4 ways I heard of that can cure it simple and cheap, two actually have evidence that it works and people who did it and such, but oh no, never hear about that. I will stop ranting now..lol
I've been a big believer in herbs for years. The medical companies will do anything to keep their real potential hidden. That alone make me sick enough to want to take some of those meds and plenty of herbs.
Fiction is a much better read anyway. Less chance of getting depressed.
Depends on what you read. I used to read so much more but lately I've been in one of those funks where I want to be entertained with as little effort as I can muster. I hate being in that place.
That's why I read fantasy....like my life at the moment.
There's nothing wrong with good escapist reading. There's too much painful reality around lately.
I want to live long enough to be a burden on my children and an embarrassment to my grandchildren.It's a dream I have.
Funny, but I'm afraid your dream will probably come true for me. I hope not. I've been a burden enough on myself.
Yep, yep, and yep. I concur x3. I went off of anti-depressants when my insurance ran out. Who can afford those things when you have to pay full price?! On the other hand, who needs them when you have insurance? Well, I do, but that's a different matter.xoRobyn
