Last fall the FDA issued a warning about a link between anti-depressants and suicidal tendencies in children. The FDA has just ordered a review of anti-depressants "to determine whether the widely used drugs can increase the risk of suicidal tendencies in adults."
Has Big Pharma discovered a line of anti-depressants that make you happy about being suicidal? Could that explain Bush's recent behavior?
In other news, China has opened a clinic for online addicts.
According to government figures, China has the world's second-largest online population -- 94 million -- after the United States.
Treatment includes therapy, medication, acupuncture and sports. If you are reading this post, it is very likely you are a crazed internet addict. In the absence of treatment centers in the United States, you might try getting a prescription for anti-depressants.

Well, if I was Bush then this poll would have me smiling and skipping.

For treatment couldn't I just access the clinic via internet? :)

Sometimes you aren't depressed because of bad brain chemicals. Sometimes your life just sucks.
That being said, I think there are a lot of MDs over-prescribing pills. I know mine does. Woo Hoo, I'm a spaceman.
