I totally agree, I just afraid some of the meds I take now will end up on the list of really awfull things that can happen to you should you take some of these meds.
Not only are the side effects horrible, then there are the ambulance chasing lawyers who put there ads up, "if you have taken ............and had these things happen to you", the list ranges from awful to death. Yeah, thats what I want to see. I no longer read side effects, all of the meds I take, I have taken for years. Plus, I am afraid if I read them, I will get the side effects, the power of those thoughts is strong.
I know longer read about any diseases of any kind, when I was young, my mother had this physicians reference book, I used to look at the pictures, and when I was old enough read theses horrible diseases, and when I read them, I suddenly had all the signs of whatever I had read about, be it prostate cancer to well many things that I will never get, I have no prostate, but at that young age, I had no idea.
I certainly do no recommend my way of handling things, I know knowledge is power, but enought already.
Take care, and thanks that is something to think about. But I guess I sometimes overthink.
