Actually, as much as I preach about "personal responsibility" I have to say prescription drug abuse is often not the fault of the addict. It is
very common, especially in Florida, for doctors to get their patients hooked on prescription drugs. I have seen patients take the prescribed dosage
and still die. 7 people per day die in Florida alone on prescription drugs. They are worse than Heroin or Crack. A person can have a car wreck, or
an injury at work, and they can see a bad doctor, and instead of getting treatment, they get painkillers, and they are able to work, but pretty soon,
they can't work without the pain killers, and it takes more and more of the narcotics to have the same pain-relieving effect.
We have a serious problem down here, and it is often the fault of the doctors and the fault of the system, not the patients.
As far as selling the child, in my opinion, selling the child is no worse than giving the child up voluntarily. For my child, if I am living under a
bridge, my kids will be right there with me! There is nothing that can drag my children from my care. There is no force on Earth that can drag my
kids away from me, guaranteed! I wouldn't personally sell them, or give them up voluntarily, or try to find them a better home than mine. Just
couldn't and wouldn't happen. We are a family, and if we go down, we go down together!
