Hi! I just read your post from earlier about sugar coating and your definition of addiction. No one is forcing you to be here, are they? Certainly no one is beating me with a stick once a day til I come on here! If you don't like the way things are done, why don't you join another group. We ARE about supporting eachother here. If that seems like sugar coating, sorry. Don't YOU want support when you need it?
Hi Rich, I read your post on Soonerdean's thread about the doctors (with help from the pharma companies) being on autopilot and prescribing meds without knowing the full effects of these drugs. My cynical side says they may know very well just how addicting certain medications are - what better way to develop a dedicated following of drug dependent patients? THAT really scares me, but I'm a thinker and it makes a ghastly kind of sense. And you thought the only monsters were in your closet or under the bed :)
Have a good day! Sandy
