Hopeless Future

What do you do when you have been unable to have any hope for your own future? This has gone on for 6 years. I can still find joy, but i have lost almost everything. The mental healthcare system is appalling, its about cheap imported toxic drugs used to chemically neuter anyone who is passionate or who is white, straight, and conservative. And I am sick of being lumped in with opioid addicts. Addicts made a choice to abuse drugs. Depression, PTSD, are NOT a choice. Plus I am sick of illegals, mi...

Dentistry's evidentiary vacuum allows profiteering butchers to raid our mouths for millions

Dentistry has always been medicine's poor cousin, lower in prestige and funding, with much less definitive research; this means that it's harder for someone to point at a procedure and definitively say, "That was unnecessary." At the same time, better oral hygiene and fluoridation has increased our overall dental health; and as that was happening, dental school tuition was mounting alongside all other forms of student debt. You can see where this is going: dentists are graduating from uni...
