It's the way doctors are trained: "there's a pill for every ill."

As I discovered in my nightmare medical journey, they have been trained to sit there, ticking off symptoms that a drug will make go away. And then they give you the drug(s). Next!

But that just cancels out the symptoms. I saw a specialist and when I talked about sleep problems and exhaustion, he wanted to give me Ambien and Prozac. And Lipitor, because I was there.

No tests, no diagnosis. Just a fistful of prescriptions. And when these drugs drive me back to complain about side effects, guess what? More drugs! More side effects!
