my daughter was being prescribed *3 DOZEN* meds daily - some multiple times by some of the so-called best experts in the field. of course ths was costing a FORTUNE! about 1/2 were to counteract the bad side-effects of the others. when her insurance ran out, she quit all of them cold turkey except for a couple that she uses as needed. in many ways her condition has not been helped at all by the meds. she is actually doing better in some respects now. YES - drugs are over-prescribed as an easy solution - whether there is evidence that they help or not. big profits for the mfgrs.
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
