In reply to Is There A Magic Pill?, posted by Phillipa on June 16, 2005, at 21:28:48
Absolutely there is. I knew a guy called Dave who found out about MDMA, a chemical patented by Merck. Daved began buying these pills from some former Soviet Union factory and sold these in nightclubs in the North of England. He went to jail and then died so I guess the magic was only temporary. ;-(
Seriously though some psychotherapists began doing research about empathy inducing effects which must have halted once FDA moved to ban this medication. There was some research suggesting it created holes in the brain buit the research later turned out to be faulty.
Exercise helps but I think art is even better. Where in the world do you live, Philippa?
> I would love to wake up in the morning like the lady in the lunesta comercial and smile and begin to sing "Oh What A Beautiful Morning, Oh What A Beautiful Day," etc. Is there a magic pill for this. I can dream can't I? Fondly, Phillipa
