Changing America’s Prescription Drug Conversation To Acknowledge Some People Need Medication

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

…would it matter so much if there weren’t as big an environmental impact, would the issue be such a topic for discussion if there were plenty of anti-biotics, less fear needed medications won’t be effective in the shadow of overuse? Never voiced the concept we need both a reduction in frivolous use of anti-biotics, handing them out to sooth patients who actually have viral infections or using them instead of symptom treaters for viral infections and new, better drugs to handle resistance and superbugs; that many of our ‘ineffective” anti-biotics are also extremely old hampering their ability to treat constantly evolving bacteria. Interesting we’re sick of school shooters, mass shooters and madmen being missed before they commit their mayhem despite overwhelming warning signs but refuse to pay for the public mental health services that would have gotten them help, support changes in laws resulting in proper notifications, upgrades to registries of people not allowed to buy guns including a wider range of mental health parameters, chanting stop drugging us all on top of it. Anyone else left with the reverberation of make up your mind, you can have one or the other not both resounding in their head? Simultaneously Andrea Yates was a monster killing her 5 children Hayden Panettiere gets a news blurb and largely sympathy for getting help prior to harming her child; we’d say yay for progress except we get a creepy feeling thinking about all the children lost to postpartum depression parents and it’s much more potent cousin postpartum psychosis because citizens of the general public had cultivated mystical wonders around motherhood and doctors weren’t paying attention, enough attention to suspect a problem, women too shamed, embarrassed or too far gone to be honest with their medical professional. Remember Jake Lloyd got snark at the revelation of his schizophrenia diagnosis blasted by the media not himself; outside the weird bubble signifying Hollywood people merely rumored to have a mental illness, severity, degree be dammed, they are treated like the current generations typhoid Marry to be avoided as if just being around them will cause you to become sick too, mentally unstable too, true for perhaps the former not the latter. ‘Club Drug’ Ketamine Rescues Suicidal Patients: Study; echo chamber in full swing spouting they will try anything in the name of research. Dismissing it can’t be any more harmful than electro-convulsive therapy dressed up title for electro-shock, reentering the public consciousness by way of the movie A Beautiful Mind; naysayers clueless it’s still used on profoundly depressed American patients…Ironic the same people shouting no medication, too much medication are the same ones handing out death glares to parents of obviously autistic children when they have a meltdown in public, we have to have specialized movie showings and theater performances so autistic children can attend sans disturbing ‘normal’ viewers/participants… Drugs in their prescription form aren’t bad they treat disease, save lives, make the quality of those lives better; when did we lose that in calling specific disorders made up, when did we suddenly think we knew better than doctors, scientists about anything part from ourselves, believe it, our kernel of self-knowledge, gave us free reign to judge someone else?

Donald Trump Isn’t Crazy Obnoxious He has Dementia and Ted Cruz Just Revealed A Spanking Fetish Then Drops out Of The Race: These Are Our Presidential Candidates

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

That delusional senile dementia so much as is in the realm of public thinking related to Trump is another giant red flag, worse the Daily Kos’ rational behind using the aforementioned type of dementia to describe, we can’t reiterate this enough, the front running republican presidential candidate; it’s more than just interesting to see them put Trumps statements, many cataloged here, through the lens of impaired judgement associated with mental decline, more than just intriguing to hear how many episodes of ‘faulty memory’ he’s had and it could indeed point to more than a politician being a politician, paying little attention to his words and spouting off whatever will make crowds cheer the loudest wherever he happens to be but that he probably can’t remember what he said less because of world wind campaign schedules and more due to brain disease. Daily Kos telling every bit the truth when they stated Trump’s childish behavior requires the least elaboration doing it anyway, to a different purpose than calling out a spoiled billionaire, rather indicating mental degradation… Remember we’re not just talking about quite seriously electing someone with a mental illness suffering from anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, our president joining the millions of Americans who succeed despite their mental health diagnosis to go on leading productive, functional, fulfilling lives, putting a positive, aware face on what you can accomplish with mental health and medical science, who takes their medication, sees their doctor, mental health professional regularly and takes care of themselves, makes healthy lifestyle choices based on caring for their mental health condition. We are talking about it in the context of a person running for, garnering votes for the highest office in the land whose behavior strongly suggests they are medically, mentally unhealthy and receiving no needed treatment… Switching ideological fallacy gears….“This kid who yelled, “You suck!” at Cruz is in the right. Cruz does suck. In the face of this frankly inarguable point, Cruz doesn’t even really try to defend himself. Instead, he pulls rank, demanding that the child pretend that Cruz doesn’t suck. And not because Cruz has earned this deference but because, as an adult, he feels entitled to it. The rapturous applause he got suggests that this is exactly the message conservative audiences want: That they deserve to win not because they have better arguments, but because they feel entitled to be in charge. And anyone who disagrees should simply get a spanking.” Begging the question what the heck is wrong with the American electorate, it is one thing to ponder the plausible fact Donald Trump even aging members of the Republican Party are in the throes of mental decline on a varying scale; it’s another thing entirely to see the throngs of followers trailing behind them, voting for them, spreading their visually twisted ideologies for them. It’s one thing for Ted Cruz to advocate spanking children under the scientifically proven misguided thought pattern it makes better disciplined, harder workers, more moral people, be extremely candid and let people know he uses spanking in his house; the booming crowd cheering him on in spite of his other, observers weren’t wrong, creepy moments are another phenomenon altogether. Proving America’s mental status, America’s emotional, logical wellbeing is in trouble not just the politicians, the elites, the ‘average Joe’s’ too. Read More
