    Grandmother’s little helper – a new drug problem emerges

    In the early 1960s, a benzodiazepine called Valium became the first drug to enter the mass market to treat anxiety. It took decades of overprescribing “mother’s little helper” before doctors finally acknowledged that the drug was highly addictive. Twenty years later, a group of pain-killing...

    how it happens

    1. Humanity is both a collective and an individual term; I'm showing examples of what causes people to not want to help others any more. and 2. I am also, and though that was not my intent, proving by isolation, how truly mindless dog-like behaviour exists in people who choose to follow the...

    the sheep

    the sheep follow. I kind of think that the sheep are happy. but we are destined for happiness. maybe that's the price we pay for being who we are. maybe we should just accept that, and the collateral damage that comes with it. i can't ever be normal. and being normal or trying, is just...

    Does being labled "Depressed" follow you?

    I am in Texas so, I am subject to the laws of the U.S. but, has it been anyone's experience that a medical diagnosis of depression has made you ineligible for a job, a driver's license, or something similar? I guess I had kind of a startling realization that having sought-out counseling for...

    How on earth do I deal with it? It is driving me loopy, particularly because it is contrary to ordinary me, how everybody sees me and the fact there is no opportunity to follow through. Driving me round the bend!
