Why are so many people drawn to conspiracy theories in times of crisis?
Verified by Psychology Today
Whose bright idea was it to start this whole doughnut hole thing? My question for him/her is: If I were in imminent danger of a heart attack, stroke or other catastrophic medical emergency, and I could not afford the full price of the necessary medication, should I just DIE???? I recently was in danger of losing eyesight in my eye, and the drops prescribed were prohibitively expensive ($800.00+0). Fortunately I overercame the worst danger, though my eye is still bad, But was Mr./Ms. Doughnut Hole suggesting I should go ahead and lose my eyesight????? My severe chronic back pain has become almost unbearable because Cymbalta, which I was taking, would now cost me $192.50; out of sight, for me. I am presently self-medicating with Vicodin, a strong, addictive pain pill; needless to say, I am NOT happy!!!
Please, Mr/Ms Doughnut Hole, what would YOU do if you were me? (only logical answers/explanations necessary; if you have none, shut yoour face and resign whatever position you are in, and let some REAL, LOGICAL, EMPATHETC person take over!
