That was THE LONGEST commercial I have ever seen. But seriously, it would be awesome if everything were made of words. OK maybe not everything, but I would like my dog to be made of words.

For a second there I thought I was on the "breakfast" thread.

One time while waiting for a script at the grocery store, I was thumbing through the book 'o drugs at the counter. Just some of the popular ones, maybe Prozac for instance. The list of side effects was CRAZY. It seemed all the really "good" ones, maybe measured by degree of marketing, had the longest list of side effects. I remember thinking dayam, the only reason to take this shit is so if you can quit, you will feel so much better. There were multiple pages of issues that could happen as you reap the benefits of screwing up your brain chemistry.

It's sad, but often I get referrals for manual therapy from the primary care docs only after a trial of Celebrex has been tried. Very frustrating. This one lady recounted a story that she'd been on it for only a few days, and had actually been feeling better. This excitement lasted until one morning she got up to pee and filled the bowl with blood. A few days of Celebrex had given her a nasty GI bleed. On the upside, these types of experiences let people know they're better off taking charge of their health vs medicating their symptoms away.

BTW her GI tract healed up nicely after stopping the drug.

Did you say intestinal bleeding? I'm back on the Celebrex bandwagon.

BTW, I have people close to me on Prozac (I call it vitamin P). It has done wonders for them, but I wish they'd try more fish oil.
