There will always be those who abuse medicines legal or illegal. Humans aare creatures of habbit and addictions. People need to balance themselves more.

The instant gratification society needs to be in a constant state of gratification. If they do not get immediate results or positive outcomes to their situation(all of them) they get all upset.

The instant gratification society citizen has little or no patience, discipline or even the will to deal with things in a slower non medicated way. You don't think the hunter gatherers of the past felt a little anxiety when they came back from a hunt empty handed. Today everyone is a victim, it's not fair, it's a conspiracy-things simply aren't going their way. Pity party time.

Deal with it, suck it up, let some
time past. That's why they say things like if you get knocked down it's how you get up. Today nobody wants to look within themselves to get up they literally want a pick me up.

The instant gratification society citizen is like a dog that is constantly licking itself. Lick lick lick-even at your own pity party.

This reflects extreme dependence on anti-anxiety and antidepressant drugs among patients. This should not be the case since therapists aim to help the patient overcome his/her depression and help them live normal lives. Moreover, antidepressants are not reliable since most of them, like Paxil, have strange side effects. This lead to various lawsuits and settlements.

Canada Pharmacy ONLINEMEDOX. COM will always be the best pharmacy for me, whether I order prescription or non-prescription. Never failed me in delivery and quality of products.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from XTOP24 .COM about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.
