"Rachael's Pills" Rachael says that she takes pills so that she won't 'flip out', a phrase that seems to cover everything from getting in trouble at school to her mother calling her social worker on her. Rachael's two brothers take medication also. The pills were 'strongly ' recommended by a school social worker who thought they were disruptive in class. Rachael's mother said they really didn't have much of a choice, and if she wanted to keep her kids in school she had to comply with the recommendation. Now she is not sure if the drugs are the cause or the cure for her childrens' occasional outbursts of temper.
