Why can't a vet get an FMRI from the VA ? How intelligent is it to give SSRIs to people IN combat? Who in the hell EVER said it was OK for ANY physician to prescribe them?
That should be be a good start.
When will it be our constitutional right to take the medicines in which we choose since we know best how we feel?

Thats a good point. After all, its not broken bones were setting, but minds. Who knows their mind best, the patient or the doctor?
I also agree that diagnosis of mental health issues is waaay off the mark. The proof of that is the meds don't cure anything. They only subdue symptoms or the awareness of symptoms so the larger world doesn't have to deal with the root cause of the problem.
We aren't healing anything, we are medicating it. We are covering it up.
