    It's a bit different than what I was expecting.

    I was actually doing research on something else when I found this.

    - It's basically a heart attack-type thing that follows a stressful emotional incident.

    Bad emotions can destroy your health.

    Good emotions can lead to the most amazing success.

    Hypothetically, happiness is just a pill away. However, in reality they've got a long way to go. The "anti-depressants" around now suck.

    The thing I was doing research on when I found that was if there was a drug that had been invented to treat a broken heart (not the broken heart syndrome they're talking about, though).

    There should be. A broken heart is just a drug withdrawal. If they can treat meth and coke addicts then they should be able to treat broken hearts by similar means.

    If I could do it again I would major in chemistry and work on creating that pill. It would make millions overnight. Who wouldn't pay for relief from the worst emotion/physical pain possible?

    Of course, it would end up being abused, and relationships would become even more impersonal because "who cares if it ends, I can just take a pill and be over them by tomorrow" :rofl:

    Even if they did or could have a pill to cure all of the implications and effects of a broken heart it would be missing the point entirely.
