John Mayer checked in with fans on his Twitter (@johncmayer) earlier this morning, talking about anti-anxiety medication. The singer songwriter tells readers:
If you look at the staggering number of prescriptions written for anti-anxiety medication, you come to one of two conclusions. Either the level of anxiety in Americans is rising at an alarming rate, or the expectation for constant control of our consciousness is.
Point is, it’s hard to be emotionally placid all the time. Consciousness is a giant pain in the ass. It’s not a pony ride. This whole new expectation of endless bliss is so far off the mark. It’s lazy.
Whatever happened to coping? Standing in one’s self and asking truly “how do we get through this?” Separating real problems from ghosts.
Xanax. .05. Have em. Keep them on hand to plug the “what if?” loophole. But I just end up losing them in the washing machine.
Think about this: every animal lives under some other animal in the food chain. Except humans. Uncomfortable, so we made a bigger animal.
Clarification: many people do benefit greatly from meds. Just something crazy about the overall distribution. This means you, emo bands.
Wait, I have them too. I just took a giant dump all over my 12-tweet point. Nevermind. I need a Xanax now. ‘night!!
