Anxiety, depression, and the fear of addiction to pills.

The cure is also the curse.

Profoundly cathartic.  Great rendition of the intangible.

That's always a fear of mine when I see friends of mine getting prescribed medicines. :(

What do you mean exactly? Can you say with absolute conviction that you know what you're talking about, propagating a message like that? You don't get addicted to prescribed medication if the doze is controlled by a doctor, it would make a damn sloppy doctor if they didn't know what they were doing. Thankfully, medicine has improved a lot since the 1950's where this might have been a problem but it's 2014. 

Medicine is usually the first step in self help and I strongly recommend contacting a doctor who's job is to plan all sorts of appropriate steps in getting better. Pills might be one of those steps and boosts you enough to take even more difficult steps, ones that seemed impossible at the time when you took none. 

So people please, you're not weak or in grave danger of addiction for considering taking pills. There's no curse.

The FDA is not on your side, friend. I admire your conviction, and sympathize if this touching piece of art hits close to home

(if this is a legitimate problem in the US then I'm sorry)

People still get addicted all of the time by their prescribed medications - despite the fact that the doses were controlled by the doctor. People are all made differently, and everyone's biology is different. To ignore this is ignorant.

No people don't get addicted all of the time, that's a pretty bold statement unless you can provide a source? Of course there will always be cases of side effects that hit some people harder than others. But this spreads fear about something that generally isn't there and it's as bad as an anti-vaccine campaign.

I used "all of the time" in a generalised, figure-of-speech way - though I have a feeling you are aware of this. Do not twist my words around. It seems we will have to simply disagree, after your anti-vaccine comment made me think that you have your own personalized biased on the subject. From what I have learned, those with strong bias (which seems to be the case here) will defend to the end their views, without even giving pause to another point of view.

Not deliberately twisting your words, I'm sorry if it came out that way but exaggeration is usually something you get called out on if you're discussing numbers. My opinion on the subject (or bias) comes from having to read a lot on all kinds of medicine; its pros and cons and associated fear mongering as well. Which is a pretty serious issue. I know that some medicine have had serious outcomes for some people but stories that induce fear and distrust are usually the stories that sell best. But I guess DA is not the right place to discuss this... yet here I am, i'm a walking irony.
