If some people didn't have bad enough anxiety as it is, then "Big Brother" is here to help. Taking real good care of us, yes indeed.Its weird I remember what seems like a lifetime ago first coming to this site, before we saw the long term effects of alot of things we are seeing now. I was just trying to understand the meds i was prescribed and came across this site. Now its just such a different world. I am so glad that this community has survived for so long. I know this is probably some nostalgic type rant I'm on but, dang how messed up everything became. It used to be a pain dealing with doctors, well at least for some of my own personal issues but ya know it was like you actually had doctors that had a relationship that I feel like has kind of disappeared. Now going into what is hopefully the end of the pandemic, I wanted to have access to things but now everything is so just disconnected. Anyone else want to go back to those days? lol. I deleted the rest of my rant into how doctors, meds, drugs, technology has changed so drastically since I first came across PR. I probably will wait to get back into the senior thread as to not open up on topics that might not make sense to newer members. But anyways I thought some nostalgic posts about early PR would be fun.
All I can say is that when the internet was first starting up and I found IOP’s, I thought my days of worrying about access to my preferred med were over. I couldn’t begin to imagine what has now taken place. The whole world has turned into “big brother.” Geezus I wish they’d stop taking such “good” care of us…
Am watching the series Narcos. Do we EVER learn from the past? The incredible amount of violence and bloodshed that is a result of the whole world’s “war on drugs” is mindblowing. I just can’t believe in this whole international attempt to control the flow of substances that continue to, and likely always will continue to be in demand - that they haven’t learned they will never win? The amount, the cost and the demand is ever increasing. Yeah it blows my mind. I just can’t believe that someone wise enough will start to see that a completely new approach is called for.
It seems that certain powerful individuals only want to "learn" what they have already determined they want the masses to learn. The bloodshed and suffering is of minor importance to them. The answer is staring us in the face, but I'm not sure it will ever happen in our lifetimes. The cynic in me says they don't even want to "win" the war, that it is too profitable in some ways to keep it going. Who knows if I'm just being paranoid. All I know is this could all be stopped.
