NE Iowa
Pill mentality is alive and well in this country. I have a good friend who is an ER doc. Works at a level I trauma center and sees the worst of the worst. She was offered a job at about a 50% increase in salary if she would come and see patients at a "boutique" medical office generally serving those with a lot of money. Well, that lasted about 3 months totally because, "I got tired of trying to help people who didn't want to help themselves". Pre-diabetic patients would come in and she would tell them to get off the couch and walk. Start with 10 minutes a day. The response was almost universal...."Can't you just give me a pill or something." She quickly went from a rewarding career to utter discouragement. She's now back at the Trauma Center, helping those who are in real need.

Yup, Pill mentality
