Do you have pop-a-pill mentality?

What caused it in your opinion?

  • I am trying to get over that. My mom caused it. Every time one of us gets sick she thinks we need to see the dr right away. She thinks my kids need antibiotics or something OTC for them to get better.

  • Not at all, I never take pills for anything, but in today's world there is a pill for everything and anything.

  • I hate taking pills. I only take my pain meds when the pain is really bad. I prefer to use other methods and home remedies for anything.

  • My MIL has not pop-a-pill, but get-an-injection mentality. As soon as one of my kids or husband is a little under the weather, oh they need to go get an antibiotic injection. No the hell they don't! They need an immune system!

  • No. I'm one of those that will refuse to take anything unless I can't stand it. My husband can't stand it, he always tells me just to take something, but I don't like to unless I have to. He's really bad for it though. I tell him I don't like him taking stuff all the time, but he doesn't think anything of it.
