Addictions in America

Hey neighbors!

I have recently experienced some panic or anxiety attacks.  Some of this is due to hormonal changes and some I believe is just the fast paced life we live.  After experiencing a few attacks, we decided to go and see what the medical field could do to help.

Now, please realize, that what I am saying here is just my experience, and in no way should you base your decision and choices on mine, but I just wanted to share what I have found.  The Dr. decided I needed to be put on an antidepressant.  First off, the Dr. barely requested any information, he just decided this would be best and prescribed a medication for me.  We went ahead and filled the prescription on the way home.

Once we arrived back at the house I read the book, paperwork, that came with the prescription.  They were so many different warnings about taking this prescribed drug.  One was it could cause suicidal thoughts.  Hmmmmmmm..... antidepressant, causing suicidal thoughts.  That sounds very depressing to me.  I also read that you were to start off with 1/2 a tablet for a few days, before increasing to a full tablet, and that if you every decided to stop taking the medicine to have a doctor's assistance, to wean yourself off, because quitting cold turkey could have serious affects.  Then there was the warning that this drug was highly addictive.

Well, that was not my idea of a solution.  So I talked it over with my family and decided to search for a healthier way of defeating the attacks.  I am slowly working through the attacks naturally.  I personally do not like taking any prescription drugs unless absolutely necessary.  When I had a swollen disc, I only took the pain medication when needed, and quickly downgraded to ibuprofen as soon as I could.

America has become full of people on prescribed drugs.  Please realize I am not saying that taking medication is bad, I am just saying we over prescribe medication today.  We no longer try to correct the problem, instead we medicate it.  America has a huge drug problem, and I believe that we have partially contributed to this because we medicate everything.

Have you ever taken a good look at what drug addiction can do, long term?  Take a moment to and just look at what drug addiction did to a few people's physical appearance here:  They also describe some of the other changes that come about from drug addiction.  If you know someone, that is misusing drugs whether street drugs or prescribed medications please encourage them to seek help.  Look for the signs pointing to an addiction and then try to get them the help they need.
