Introduction

Victoria Borges 8-401 Lafayette St School Silent Kill One by one a pill enters your mouth. You keep on saying to yourself its good for you so you take one after the other, every 3 hours. "I must" you say to yourself "I must take this to heal from my depression. I have been suffering for to long". You stop taking them for the day and go to sleep. The next day this same routine is repeated and the day after that this routine is still going. Next thing you know it it's been a week and you can't stop taking them, your mind is spinning insanely and telling you to take more to stop the spinning. You can barely walk to your medicine and luckily you've made it, you take another, after that other and the routine happens again. Sadly without knowing it you've become addicted to something deadly, the next day you take one more pill and you whole world goes black. ...read more.

Then the answer hit me with more and more research. Most doctors always tend to think that depression is only a sickness; but that's not all it is. It's also a feeling and can be very normal but some doctors are blind to that fact. When depression is only a feeling medication for it can actually do nothing but worsen these affects.

The crime one that surprised me the most was a teenage boy who beat up an elderly woman for her complaining about his loud music. It was devastating to know that something that is suppose to make you feel better actually did this to millions. Finally the dreadful truth of these medications is finally announced about its side effects and its deadly outcome. These things just make this prescription pointless to use, so why use it. Like I stated before depression is not only sickness but a feeling and that is something all of us should remember including doctors.
