More people are medicated for depression today than at any time in history. It's the world of the "happy" pill; taking medication has become the norm and is seen by many as the thing to do. Could these events happen today? Of course. People are often prescribed one thing, and then another prescription quickly follows to treat the side-effects. Could this exact story happen..... maybe not. Could a woman feel the same type of desperation and fall into a position where she finds it impossible to help herself? Yes..... it could happen.
