Yeah, Xanax. That's It

So, I don't know if this would be classified as the "inevitable", but I guess that it isn't all that surprising.  You tell me.  Octomom has gone into rehab!  See?  It's not surprising, but I don't know if it's something that we saw coming.  But let's think about this for a minute. 

According to the TMZ, Octomom "admitted herself into the Chapman House Drug Rehabilitation Center in Southern California over the weekend after acknowledging she's become dependent on Xanax ... an anti-anxiety drug ... which she began taking to "deal with stress."  Really?  Taking something for stress?  You don't say!  A single parent who just started doing solo porn to support her fourteen children all under the age of...eleven.  And she's taking Xanax to deal with "stress"?  Shocking.  Wait a minute....

Let me get this straight.  She wants "treatment" for her "addiction" to (insert substance here) and in order to receive said "treatment" she needs to go away to some rehab for thirty days?  Thirty days with no children around her?  Thirty days with someone else cooking your meals and doing your laundry whilst you receive "treatment" for your "problem", all the while someone else looks after your fourteen children?  Yeah, OK.  Sure.  She's "addicted" to Xanax.  I'd say I was addicted to anything I needed to in order to get that deal.  ("Hi.  Yes, I'm here for all the treatment without children.  Yes, I, um, I...sniff glue!  I sniff all the glue, all the days!  I'm here to be away from all of my children and to get some sleep, for Christ's sake!  Let me in.  I'M ON GLUE!") 

Look, as someone with an advanced degree in the behavioral sciences (hard to believe, I get that, but it's true) and as someone who spent many, many years working with small children, I don't say what I'm about to suggest very lightly.  But seriously folks, hasn't this little experiment run its course?  This is an absolutely impossible situation for anyone to take on, let alone someone as mentally addled as Octomom is.  Those kids need to be in someone else's care and pronto.  This woman cannot take care of them.  Let's give her the benefit of the doubt and say that she actually is addicted to Xanax.  Real good role model there, right?  It matches up quite well with her solo porn career and her general cluelessness and irresponsibility.  The kids need to be somewhere far away from her.  Hell, I'm pretty sure that some portion of my tax dollars are helping support that insanity over there.  Don't I have any say in it?  No?  Just this blog.  Hmmm.  That's unfortunate.  Then again, whole situation is unfortunate.
