It is strange. I can only think of one kid that had asthma when I was growing up. In high school he smoked Camel straights too and then he got into bull riding. Smoked quite a bit of other stuff too. He wasn't exactly wussy and for some reason didn't need a cabinet full of meds.

It's kind of like the 800% increase in psychotropic meds for children between 1990 and 2000. Where were all the emotionally sick kids in the '60s, '70s and '80s? All of a sudden every kid that looks cross eyed at the teacher needs Ritalin or Prozac. Don't get me started.

“Don’t get me started.”

I won’t. See my last post. I’m bleary-eyed. (but would love to have this conversation some time because I sense you’re a kindred spirit).

What scares me the most is that an inhaler can be very dangerous to a person who doesn’t really need it and these drs are handing them out so quickly. Plus these drs don’t pay attention to what you tell them. Some of the meds shouldn’t be combined. Sassy’s dr wouldn’t even listen to what I was saying remember? They think they know it all... If you hadn’t figured it out I don’t know what would have happened to Sassy. Hugs & many thanks....~Pandy~ & ~Sassy~
