I have no first hand experience with Prozac and I know it helps millions of people, so I’m not trying to disparage the drug. This song was inspired by a group of nurses I was giving a presentation to. They shared some interesting stories about people and patients they thought definitely should and should not be taking Prozac. I found the stories of the should-nots especially intriguing. One well-known man, an artist whom they described as funny, creative and upbeat, had lost his spark and personality since using Prozac. They shared some interesting examples. My imagination took over. Suddenly a song appeared. I have talks and shows coming up next month for several nurse and healthcare groups. I’m curious to share this “take” on Prozac with them.
Behind me is the view from our balcony. These amazing New Mexico sunsets are one reason I’ll never need Prozac!
