I'm more anti-prozac, too. It is only good to

But I know some people really do need help, so I don't judge them. I do judge the doctors who are so quick to write prescriptions, though.
I don't envy the
the doctors play in this game, too, because I have the impression that most of them have too much work ant lack time to listen to their patients
The problem with medicine these days is it is drug-orientated, rather than health-orientated. This means no-one is encouraged to get healthy, just to take the pills. The drug companies are rich, powerful and influential. I believe it was the Rockefellers and Carnegies that funded the modern style of medical training, based on drug therapy and nothing else (well, surgery as well). They managed to keep funding away from every other kind of medical training campus, and were responsible for the millions of deaths from drug treatment ever since.
it is easy to create
if something is repeated enough times by respected members of the community - i.e. doctors
you are right, and it is a shame that the producers of those drugs are also able do dictate high prices for their pills. Medical analysis with radiology or other technological methods is rather expensive, too. It costs far more than what the doctors are paid for caring for their patients And they always try to
you into more and more of those treatments.
I object to doctors expecting to
over your treatment and you don't have a say. I went to a doctor once and he actually said to me something like, "If you don't do as I tell you, I don't want you as my patient any more". That's like a mechanic telling me I have to drive at 30 only or he won't try to fix my car. Not exactly, but not really that different. I never went back to that doctor.
you back to more neutral ground?

(explanation: I am currently kicking the habit of taking anti-depressives. The withdrawal symptoms are not to be laughed at, I can really do without these free for all soundbites...thank you!)
and no you do not understand anything Dez
Christine, our strong need to hassle with the doctors is not so easy to
we have had our share of bad experiences, too, lately and enjoy the chance to enlighten our hearts this way...
(explanation: in my case I'm suffering from side effects of strong anti-epileptic pills which shall help against one of my new hobbies - migraine. Well, at least you made us talk about hobbies ;-)
Thank you for your assessment. I'll tell you how to avoid the soundbites. Don't read them. Everyone has an opinion and they are welcome to express it, but not when it's personal. I have never said anything personal to you but this is the second time you have made a derogatory remark about me. I can't help it if you don't like me, but if it makes you feel better I am more than happy to stop participating.
Dez, if you'd stop participating that would make me feel sad. I think you hit the best point for public forum discussions - everyone has to learn for himself what he wants to read and what he wants to spend time with. Nobody can expect that everyone out there only writes things which fits into his/her own view of the world.
We all have our share of
and woe, as well as joys. All the more reason to cheer each other up and support each other. I'd be very sad to see you depart Dez - please stay!
this forum was a source of joy for me,
enough, so I hope it will stay this way... (and so will Dez)
