Its true. It was easy as pie for me to get a script for Xanax. I don't abuse it, I would use one evey month to three months, but I remember thinking that it seemed too simple.

Also, I never take Xanax or pain meds when I am the sole parent in the house. I was given pain meds for my stitches, and I never even filled the script. I think parents who truly need the pills should take them, but unless you NEED to, I don't think parents should take altering legal drugs while they are the only parent "on duty."

BTW, I like run-on sentences today. Enjoy.
