Macgyver, I’m guilty of painting with a broad brush here. I’m pointing out the unethical behavior of doctors, pharmaceutical companies, salespeople, hospitals, clinicians, pshychiatrists, counselers, and laboratory workers. Sorry, I’m speaking of the vast amount of diagnosis that goes on inthe interest of large pharmaceutical companies. You know, the Number 1, or 2 traded commodity, and the in the top 3 of the gross worth commodities.
Here’s your vague recollection: Life Magazine June 24 1966 issue. Sitting right next to me on my desk.
Front Cover A silhouette of a person taking pills, behind a foreground of a rainbow of pills and capsules floating in the air. A Pill Mosaic if you will. The Title:“Doctors and the Rx Scandal; How some M.D.s short cut ethics and profit from their own prescriptions.”
And you know what? For the vast amount of these diagnosis, who cares.You got some hypochondriac coming in all the time, fix him up. Restless leg syndrome- dose ‘em up!!
I don’t like the idea of children and young adults being diagnosed by counselers and doctors, and administrators, as being hyper or unmaneageable and being forced or coerced into being bombed out in a stupor. Walking around on Psych-Meds, it’s just like Soma from 1984. It’s a friggin’ joke!!
