Life sucks - just accept it


Spot on Shaba. Well said. Many people do need help but a larger number just want to medicalise all the problems in their life and want the doctors/ therapists to help out, rather than sort it themselves. People die, businesses fail, loved ones betray us, money is lost, floods happen just as shit does, in a predictable pattern sometimes, and we do have to learn to face such calamities. By all means have a moan or a temporary breakdown and take sedatives or even antidepressants, but within a few months pulkl yourselves up and move on. Notice how we doctors are never expected to feel low or meidcalise our emotional/financial problems, but with a steely glint in our eyes turn up everyday because people have been told to GANFYD.
