Seems to me that we are living in a day and age that everyone has a label. i work in a place with alot of young people and everyone of them has something from some Dr. saying that the reason they do things or behave certain ways is because of this or that. A.D.D. manic depression, depression, bi-polar ext.... I do beleive that sometimes people do have these problems and that they maqy be legitamate. but more often than not I think that these labels are handed out like candy, and medication is very profitable now. I think that these labels prevent people from taking responsibility for the way they behave. When I was younger these labels didn't exist. Thats not to say that everybody was honkey dory. I see kids nowadays come here for counseling saying that the Dr. says that it's good for me to smoke pot because if I get angry I will hurt someone. I also was diagnosed long ago with clinical depression. I was given medication, and at that time I was drinking. Needless to say that I drank with the medication. I don't beleive that I was depressed at all now. I beleive that I just was drinking too much. Now I'm not saying that we don't need medication at times, but it seems to me that by working to solve the problem will have a much more desirable affect on a person's life and the happiness that they will have in their lives. Even in the schools, if little Johny is acting up or won't pay attention, take him to the Dr. and give him a pill. Now little Johny is doped up, and the underlying problem still exist. I take medication now too, but I can't go off of it because of the side effects. I am sorry sometimes that I went on it to begin with. But aside from that everything is going well now. I'm sober and very much am enjoying it. So I really don't want to mess with things right now. Just seems to me that there is a label for almost everything that we do. Society's solution is take a pill. sometimes I get sick of hearing this shit that people use to blame their problems on. When you talk to them or offer sugestions, they come back with, "Well my Dr says this." Just because a Dr. says something does not mean that's the way it is. Dr's are human too and they make mistakes. With all their knowledge, technology and everything else they still cannot cure the common cold, but they will tell you that you have a virouse,"Here take some penicillon." What virous? You can see that by looking in my ears, or telling me to drop my pants and cough? Most times I beleive that we know ourselves well enough to take responsibility for what we do, and for our actions. Once we try that, generally we can live healthy lives again.
