Pills are not answer: Pills are not the answer when dealing with grieving over terrible medical diagnoses. Talk therapy with a good counselor is high on the list of what to do to help you. Also finding others in person or on line who are dealing with these problems can be a good source of learning how to manage the stress of being ill.
