"Drugs are not always necessary, but a belief in recovery is."
- Norman Cousins

Look him up, he has an interesting background. He was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis (though today doctors suspect it was actually reactive arthritis) and he poo-pooed doctors wanting to but him in the hospital and pump drugs into him. He hypothosized that the positivity of the human spirit could prevail, so he checked out of the hospital and took heavy doses of Vitamin C, Marx Films for healthy deep fits of laughter, and a heavy dose of hope and positivity! And he did prevail! He survived and thrived much longer than any of his doctors predicted. Inspiring. My new personal motto!
