I just read this article about U.S. military on prescription pills. I don't know what I think about that. I think there is far too much stigma, still, over PTSD, which is a normal reaction to extraordinary stressors.
But being on some of those heavy medications...how can they even think fast? Aren't a lot of anxiety pills sort of like muscle relaxants in that they slow down brain activity? if so, how is that helpful in war? it seems dangerous. I can't say marijuana would be much better, when you're short term memory is temporarily shot. It seems like it would be better though, if taken in smaller doses. I don't know.
I'm getting my medical permit for migraine soon.
