Jessica Gardner writes: "I've previously discussed that I take two prescription for two chronic problems that I have. More than anything, I'd like to be able to stop taking these medications either because the problems are fixed or because I've found a way to manage them through more natural (i.e., non-chemical based) ways. I've spoken to both doctors who treat these conditions and we all agree that there are some ways to achieve my goals without popping pills, although for a variety of reasons, we've decided to do this slowly and will probably wait until I have a new job."
