What it means to grow up in this day and age..

At work today I relized something scary...

It seems we are growing up and rasing children in a world that wants everything right now...

We don't want to cook dinner so we go grab some fast food
We don't want to wait for a veggie or fruit to grow so we head to the market
We don't want to know the animal that is our food so we buy pre packaged processed overly frozen meat
We don't want to admit our faults so we blame someone or something else
We would rather spend $4 on a gallon of tea instead of taking the 3 hours to make sun brewed tea that costs like what 50 cents a gallon??
We would rather buy fancy $5 coffees instead of getting a good nights sleep
We want a simple quick easy life...

Example: Today a patient came in asking what she should take for a upset stomach. When asked how long it has been going on she said about a month on and off, when asked why she thought this was happening she responded she gets terriable pains after eating greasy food. When she was told maybe she should think about changing her diet she sneered and laughed and said no I just need some pepto or prilosic.....

Excuse me but this seems just dumb but this is how life has become... we all just want a quick fix

Thank you for allowing me to rant today after my stressful day! And maybe we can take a step back and look at our own life...
