And what Picasso has to say
Nice touch! Thank you.
I am reading “Stealing Fire” by Steven Kotler, and I find it super interesting… there are some tools to make us feel better and keep feeling better. It’s changing my perspective on “breakdowns” and crises in life.
Your statement "Perhaps, we need to give people tools, not just pills" says it all. My husband had memory problems but took no prescribed drugs prior to emergency surgery and a 9-day hospital stay. His body recovered, but his memory never did. He was eventually diagnosed with dementia. I strongly believe that the anesthesia and plethora of drugs given while at the hospital played a major role.
Nice Valentina! I thought about you when I saw the news about how SSRI's actually don't work. I had also read this in a recent book about how the data on SSRIs had been suspect for a long time but there was too much money chasing it. There is a place for drugs of course but I suspect they're too heavily relied on as a quick fix...
