Stress Management, comment


Stress is a very large part of our lives but as long as there are doctors on every street corner pushing "make you feel better pills" then why try to cope. We have become a pill-popper society because no one regulates or holds doctors accountable for their actions. I see this everyday as an ER nurse.

Title: Stress Management
Everyone in today’s society has alot of stress. Is the stress today different than it was 50 years ago? We seem to be a society of people who are incapable of handling the stressors in our lives. We are seeing a higher use of medications to deal with life. I wonder if we are helping ourselves by taking medications instead learning ways to cope. Medications are necessary for some, but it seems that every patient I admit to the hospital is taking some form of medication to help them sleep, handle anxiety, or handle depression. I am worried that we are simply taking pills instead of learning coping mechanisms. We need to get away from being a society of pillpoppers and become a society that can handle what comes our way by maintaining a healthy body and mind.
