"Everyone"("" cause I don't like speaking in absolutes) reuses old prescriptions and "expired" prescriptions (cause can pills really expire?? If they can I don't wanna know, lol) and went for the knockoffs when they know what they need but don't have the prescription for it...while doctors will tell us it's healthier to get the prescription and it's safer and all that stuff....generally 'why pay extra/this is kinda expensive' are the mindsets that counter these thoughts
"Relationships (friendships, cakeships, smashships) are medicine to the soul...getting the prescription right is crucial."
I wanna say "in this day and age" SOO badly, but I shall refrain. Either way the way relationships work in the social environment I find myself living "next to" (I don't support it, so I can't say I'm a part of it) anyways....the social environment I find myself living next to is one that has a "treat the symptoms" mentality.
The difference between taking over-the-counter medicine for something you usually get prescriptions for is:
- it's normally not as strong as the prescription
- the "knock off" oftentimes isn't catered to the sickness and therefore you're only treating the syptoms
So the prescription that is a committed relationship is replaced with friends with benefits and smash buddies and ex's and over-the-counter fixes such as those...but they are temporary.
I was gonna expound further on this, but I'm sleepy at the moment......
