The Destruction of Prescriptions
Prescription drugs are an epidemic in our country. They don’t seem like a big deal when they appear to help with a specific problem; acetaminophen, an over-the-counter drug, for a headache for example. It’s when they quit becoming a solution and turn into the problem we begin to have trouble. In our society today, there seems to be a quick fix for everything. The go-to answer appears to be a pill, whether it’s minor back pain or a broken heart. This reliance on pills to fix our lives has led to unimaginable suffering.
“Prescription drugs make it easy for us, as humans, to solve a problem without actually fixing it. I have pain, here’s a pill. If coffee doesn’t work in the morning, here’s a pill. I can’t sleep at night because I’ve had too much coffee, guess what? There’s a pill for that too...”
Prescription drugs make it easy for us, as humans, to solve a problem without actually fixing it. I have pain, here’s a pill. If coffee doesn’t work in the morning, here’s a pill. I can’t sleep at night because I’ve had too much coffee, guess what? There’s a pill for that too. This sequence plays out every day in many people’s lives worldwide. But it goes a lot deeper than that. What happens when they don’t quite do it. The answer is more medication, usually, or a different kind still. Maybe alcohol with the medicine will do the trick; the bottle says not to, but nothing else works. It quickly becomes routine, and you forget the problem you thought you fixed. If you take away the masking of medication, the problem is still there, and now you have more issues. Dependency and confusion go hand in hand; both are issues that perpetuate each other.
Now you are addicted, but the doctor says you should be all better. What happened? You tried taking them as prescribed, then started taking more, and then added other substances with them.
Sound familiar? This scenario plays out in our community and communities all over the US. Now you’re just confused, you have pain, you can’t locate it, but it’s there. Is it me? Am I the problem? What do I do? You’re thinking of a sedative and maybe an upper to be on the safe side. What were we talking about again? Try this. It will help you focus; you might lose a little weight; it’s a win-win, right? No, wrong. All these things are taking power away from us and giving it to the doctors.
Slow down, relax, and seek the truth. If you can relate to this in any way, don’t worry. You are not alone; there are many like us. But few will decide to change and go against the masses. So be the minority and find happiness. It was there the whole time, just covered up by a prescription.
