"May Cause Dizziness"

"May Cause Dizziness"

"This piece was created from bottles provided to me by strangers. I simply put a call out on the on-line community called Freecycle. What struck me was the amount of pills and bottles people had to give me. Do this many people really NEED this much medication? How does our dependence on medications lead to more dependence? I am reminded of a drug resistance program I was in when I was in Elementary School. It talked about how taking an aspirin, when you didn't really need it, could lead to becoming dependent on stronger drugs. Well, I am not sure of that, but I am sure that while drugs can help people live better lives, just as many people are rendered helpless because of their dependence upon them."
