Nice to hear your weekend going well and i am really pleased for you it's great news.I believe that there is a place for modern medicine in all fields, but I think that mental health requires alternative methods too, like learning about a condition and how it works and also by using replacement methods etc.
Years ago people 'coped' with lots of conditions that we have today. And they coped without modern medicine. Maybe they coped by chatting to relatives (no tv in those days) by taking up a craft, by getting the household chores completed etc, a whole array of things. I think that in the modern world we lost a lot of the 'old tried and tested' coping mechanisms and it's now that people are struggling (for instance being addicted to prescription medication) that they are turning to the 'old tried and tested' ways once again.
Your right about learning about conditions as i've always done it and the ones highlighted i've studied even further as the old saying goes "knowledge is power"
Yes years back they just got on with it and struggled through pain but they did have neighbours they was involved with where they could chat.
fancyharm, i keep saying this to my hubby they're advancing in technology but regarding peoples living conditions for the working glass they're throwing them back to old times..we'll be on coupons before you know it xxx
