Deciding where to post this thread was quite the enigma. It covers my dream, writing, and of course the news considering it is about medicine and where it's headed under Obamacare. So if it's in the wrong place, I hope the good moderators here will show some mercy. Anyways...

I send letters to the editor of my local paper every now and then. The paper has asked everybody who has had a letter published through them in the last six months if we would like to participate in a little contest to win a free year's subscription. I know, right? This is huge and I'm excited. <sarcasm

We can submit a short essay, satire, investigative report, or another letter so long as we discuss the direction of our country under Obama. This is my submission and I would greatly appreciate some critical advice. I want that free script so help me realize my dream! Get it? realize my dream...I'm on the AP forum...If that wasn't slightly funny, just know that I killed myself with that pun. But seriously, any help is appreciated.

It's a sad fact that many doctors today choose to be admired by their peers instead of their patients. In the medical sciences, the surest and fastest way to the top of the hierarchy is to observe and diagnose a new disease. That sounds great but the reality is that almost 90% of all new diseases that are recognized are mental disorders. What this means, is doctors are calling their patients crazy today for what we never considered a problem in the past.

Permit me a silly example:
Dr: How long have you been watching your cats play?
PT: I'm not sure what you mean doc, but I guess ever since they were kittens.
Dr: Uh-huh, I see now. Would you say you spend a normal amount of time watching them?
PT: Eh...Yeah. I mean I guess so, but what do you call normal? I...,I don't understand, are you for real?
Dr: Hmm...And how long have you been questioning your reality?
PT: Look doc, I came in here because I had a headache but this is getting weird. I'm outta here.
Dr: Calm down please. There's no need to get hysterical, In fact, I know what's wrong with you.
PT: You do! That's amazing! Lay it on me doc. What's the illness and how much time do I have?
Dr: Well, I have to talk with your insurance company before we can decide how long you can  
     live but you have a disease that I'm thinking about calling "Early Onset Feline Trauma
     Induced Dementia." The trauma explains your headache and why you forgot to mention the trauma
     in the first place. Now, couple that with your unusual infatuation with your cats and it's no wonder  
     that you're suffering a psychotic break with reality. But there's no need to worry. This is a    
     classic case of a new disease.

I know that's a tad extreme but welcome to Obamacare. Notice I didn't mention the cure? That's because there's no money to be made in that endeavor. And besides, curing an illness is a lot more work when prestige has a quicker and easier route through some made-up disease. Prozac anybody?

Please point out grammar errors. Oh, I posted this on another forum but it's my writing. It's either under this username or astral zombie, I can't remember. Please tell me if I missed the mark as they're not gonna just give that subscription away. lol.

Totally, restless leg syndrome anyone? Doctors diagnose mental illness, companies make drugs for made up problems. It's a sorry state.

This section of the Forum is labeled "Welcome to News and Media". That means that it is open to discussions of all forms of new or media, political or not.

 It doesn't necessarily have to be Astral related.

 We have other sections on this Forum for Astral Related topics and discussions.
