Oh, Lisa. I'm sorry to hear that about your mother. It seems that our doctors are really where the issue begins and then it leaks out into our local communities and begins to spread. It truly is an epidemic that our society has created, unfortunately.

It is unfair, Lisa Stone - so many people pop the pills their Doc's prescribe them like candy, not even bothering to check with Dr Google (or indeed to read the package insert) especially concerning side-effects, addiction, drug-drug interactions and the long term health effects...
