    typically, no. it's too addictive, destructive to the liver and there are far better medications. it can sometimes be used as a euphoric, but it's longevity isn't lasting and (again) there are better medications.

    here is my problem with the "press": most people allow bullies so long as they're like minded
    this is best demonstrated in the press


    Here is a great example: the Parkland shooters and the subsequent bullying in the media

    Hogg was bullied, and he refused to accept an apology
    but he was supportive of Emma González, who admitted to bullying the shooter Nikolas Cruz.

    Worse still, it was a media circus because someone dared to speak against a Parkland survivor!

    then enter Thorp bullying Kashuv (calling him a douche) and his date. Kashuv is also a parkland survivor.

    Notice the silence in the media compared to Hogg?

    the double standard is painfully obvious, yet to call attention to it is considered wrong.

    This is repeated in so many different areas - including various internet forums: So long as you're one of the pets, or the like minded, then you can get away with posting blatant falsehoods. it doesn't matter what evidence is against that person. they have the protection of the echo chamber.

    This is one of the most frightening things about freedom of speech as well - it's a double edged sword and it means protection of those who believe some radically stupid things, from eugenics to flat earth.

    FYI did you know that when polling the data on paternally challenged paternity claims
    DNA tests for paternity demanded by the male when the female has made the claim in legal documents
    there is a 70% result of the DNA test showing it is not the males childs.

    lots of holes in that result obviousely but it is published data

    thats quite fascinating.

    Putting two and two together (your first computer), you could well be of childbearing age. I've just heard an item on the BBC news about the risks to the unborn child of Na valproate. Presume you have been made aware of this, have you?

    The physician in the hospital prescribed it cause of a seizure too, my family doctor was going to write me a new prescription.

    I can't keep up with all the studies on things: https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/23/health/caffeine-pregnancy-child-overweight-study/

    OK but this one is serious enough that the British NHS is no longer allowed to prescribe the drug to women of childbearing age unless they have had a discussion with the doctor about the risks, should they become pregnant. It's not just another diet scare in the media.

    I was only in the hospital for a week, unknown how I got there and woke up strapped down to a bed in the psychiatric ward with my original family doctor 200 km away (university causes you to move).

    I actually don't know what medical info is on my health card, police can see if I have a criminal record or not with one swipe though.

    for readers who are not familiar in reading statistical data...
    women gets pregnant
    claims a guy she had sex with is the father that is the biggest earner or most stable parent figure or stereo typed father figure...knowingly makes the false claim.
    male whom she has had sexual relations with legally disputes it and demands a DNA test.
    now you have all the DNA tests which have been collected for all those men in that situation demanding the proper DNA test...
    only 3 in 10 babys are actually the mans child.

    7 out of 10 babys are not the mans babys

    countrys that do not support human rights for babys & children

    additionally around 15% of the men paying chld support know the baby is not theirs but pay it anyway.
    around 20 to 40% of all claims are not contested.

    religious personality politics polutes this statistical data from being collected properly along with lack of social welfare for single babys

    Wait, what you said beforehand doesn't support this.

    Because, well, it should be obvious...

    Actually, looking it up a bit more, there is another glaringly obvious red flag the doctor did not warn me of about the drug. I'll spare the details of why. He might have just thought I was familiar with details and felt it was just like a prescription renewal.

    I still don't know how or why I got to the hospital, but was going to get hospital records anyway for another thing and might even contact police. The only thing I'm sure about is I must have gone outside without anyone else in the house knowing.

    I don't mean to be nosey, but do you have someone who helps you with all this going on? I'd hate to be trying to manage it all on my own.

    I got hooked up with a social worker after the hospital. Very interesting to talk with and the knows way more about the area than me.

    One of the most ignorant things I've asked people after moving, and they just looked at me weird, is: "How close are we to Lake Ontario?" Was kinda' a big land mark when before I could just walk there. But now I'm almost as near to it as I am to Lake Eerie.

    Doctors don't always disclose unless you as the DR will probably tell you to talk to your pharmacist.
    of course, that also depends on the area, local and state laws, etc. and the policies of the institution or hospital you are at. Some DR's will take the time.

    I can't make a definitive statement for outside the US though
