Gregg Wallace fixed grin device cures depression, provokes violence | NewsBiscuit | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
‘Why the long face?’ is a question that may soon be relegated to the past thanks to the release of the incredible Gregg Wallace fixed-grin device. Fitting neatly and invisibly into the corners of the mouth ‘The Wallace’ claims to turn all frowns upside down in a nano-second. Anger management specialists and medical practitioners are hailing the device as an amazing alternative to anti-depressants and expensive courses of therapy. ‘Valium, librium and mogadon once seemed to provide the perfect answer to stress,’ said Dr Hilda Radcliffe from her Harley Street clinic, ‘but The Wallace comes without any of the typical side-affects, such as altering the chemistry of the brain and turning people into vegetables. However, it is not without its problems and patients do need to take care where and when they wear it.’
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Those of us who deal with or write about mental health issues need to laugh at the whole topic. Personally, I loved this bit of satire. If you need to put mental illness into perspective, read "Memoirs From the Asylum," a book that will make you laugh, cry, and think. You can find it on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Memoirs-From-Asylum-Kenneth-Weene/dp/0984421955 Remember that laughter is god's way of praying to us.

Novel Compounds May Treat Depression Rapidly With Few Side Effects

Novel Compounds May Treat Depression Rapidly With Few Side Effects | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

A new study by researchers at University of Maryland School of Medicine has identified promising compounds that could successfully treat depression in less than 24 hours while minimizing side effects. Although they have not yet been tested in people, the compounds could offer significant advantages over current antidepressant medications.

Kenneth Weene's insight:

I hope they can control the addiction issues that GABA antagonists are prone to produce. These include alcohol and Valium to give you an idea.
