I love this picture. I think most "mental illnesses" are just an excuse to not to have to deal with things, whether it's depression, A.D.D, etc. We medicate childeren because we don't want to deal with their energy, so we call them A.D.D. ARGH! This picture does make me laugh though.

I like this a lot...and it has a good point to it, as well. The psychiatric outlook these days DOES rather seem to be "a pill for everything"...and you've got to wonder how much of these "mental illnesses" are genuine, and how many are drug-induced. I mean, doesn't anyone remember that these things have side-effects? Man, if I'd been a kid in today's medical climate, I'd have been on Ritalin for sure...and the only thing wrong with me was general orneriness. Great pic, though--not only an interesting and relevant message, but some very nice painting going on.

Art at its best.
