Just found the article with the above title in the Washington Post. It is disgusting beyond belief.

Alto, I posted two comments with the SA website. One definitely went through. Not sure about the other one.

 

Thankfully, most of the commentators seem be disgusted as well. But it doesn't seem to matter in the long run. Oh well.

Yeah, they 'work' because they they make us numb, so we can't feel. Doing so interrupts the normal grieving process, feelings are not processed.

 

This has come about because grieving has been included in the DSM V, the Bible of Psychiatry. There was much resistance from professionals and consumer groups, but the influence of Big Pharma won out. Now the travesty begins.

 

CS, this is an important article. Copy and post some of the contents in the body of your post?

Hi Skyler,

 

It is a such a long article I had a very hard time choosing what to insert. It didn't help that I had a horrible night of sleep.

PS - I think they should give the drugs to the surviving families of the Newtown victims. That should work :rolleyes:

I agree, a very important article.

 

My wonderful doctor says we grieve so we can let go and start again.
