Life can be better with the use of chemicals. Every year, I embark on chemical warfare in my rose garden. The bugs try to eat all of the first blooms and I try to kill all the bugs with chemicals. Most of the time, I win the war and have a bounty of colors and perfumes gracing my garden. This year, I learned that these poisonous potions can have some major consequences. After spraying, one of my prized plants immediately turned brown and sickly. Worst of all, the targeted pest is still in my garden.
Chemicals do not always live up to their promises. The same can be said of opioid pain medications like morphine, methadone, oxycodone and hydrocodone. Sometimes these chemicals have some serious consequences and can still leave a person in pain. Are these chemicals really worth it in the long run? Was the loss of one rose bush worth the blooms of the others? I am not sure, but I am definitely having second thoughts about using chemicals in my garden knowing the consequences.

Question: Ledouix wrote... I have a few questions about the drug prozac. I would like to know long term side affects to a person who has taken it for ten years. What affects on a liver that has been laserated almost in half and repaired. This happened almost at the same time my friend started prozac. I do not understand the changes that have occured in the past few months in this person. I feel that things in health has caused a breakup in what was a great realationship. She wont tell me what is going on in her life and has become very mean to me. This makes me wonder if she is trying to protect me from something bad that might be going to happen. Any help to let me know that meds and a damaged liver could cause a terminal problem could help me to understand why the sudden change in her to not want me to be around. I feel that she is protecting me and keeping me away because of her love for me and the way I love her and dose not want me to see her go through this....
