You’ll be somewhere
Talking to me
As if you knew me,
Saying, I’ll be home for next year, darling.
I’ll be home for next year.
That shit really annoys me, equating amphetamines with meth or street drugs and little else. If you have no conception of the varying treatments for depression and anxiety then shut your face hole, thinking you’re the fucking FDA or something.
Amphetamines aren’t the go-to choice for the treatment of depression and anxiety but they certainly have been used for that. There are plenty of people who conventional antidepressants don’t work for who find relief in amphetamines. I’ve been prescribed them myself.
Let’s not forget the people who think 82 pills is some exorbitant number, like no human being could ever need that many pills. Depending on your daily dose, that’s a two-three month supply.
Fucking idiots walking around thinking 82 pills means you’re skulking around street corners trying to sell your enormous stash to junkies, shut the fuck up.
And let’s not forget about the people who are still pressed that she didn’t immediately drop her prescription when she moved back to Korea.
Because changing your prescription isn’t scary at all. Nope.
Plus amphetamines are generally used to treat refractory depression aka treatment-resistant depression. If she was taking amphetamines it’s likely that was a last resort, after conventional antidepressants showed no effect.
Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.
