I watched a Public Broadcasting program called NOVA last Tuesday about children and medications. It was apalling. Doctors are prescribing Paxil, other antidepressants, Ritalin, Antispycotics to cildren as young as 3! There are kids out there that have been diagnosed with Bi-polar, Autism, depression, ADHD and on. Some of these kids take 8 or more meds a day and are dying in their sleep from overdoses. The doctors admit they have very little information on long term affects of these drugs on young kids. Is this a new pattern? Everytime a child is depressed they are given drugs? What gives? I also watched a news piece about a clinic in California that was shut down by the police because they were selling marijuana to "clients." I know in California you can obtain a "prescription" for marijuana and get it filled legally.What stuck out was a woman who could not get her dose and she used pot for what? Depression, and panic attacks. Good grief. We are the most medicated country in the world except maybe Iraq where the drug dealers are young kids who walk around selling what? Paxil.Something is wrong here.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
