I totally agree some people need them, but this was not what was said here. It was said as a way to fix it all without any effort otherwise. I have no qualms about people taking medication, hell I dish it out at work all day, my concern is people jumping right to meds as a solution. A lot of stuff is fixable without meds. I think sometimes its another "quick fix solution" in our "quick fix solution" kind of culture. Sometimes stuff is hard to get through and sometimes uncomfortable for a long time, but it is possible to get through stuff when a good effort is made (determined by the person having the issues). If its just not working and getting worse, then by all means seek out medical help. I was not at all suggesting otherwise. Just to clarify. sorry for the derailment.
