I hesitate to identify with "leftie" because the truth of the matter is that before Ronald Reagan, and even during his tenure, my views would have
been seen as Conservative. The Right has moved so far to the right since 9/11 that it skews the labels and makes anyone who is not Ted Nugent or Rush
Limbaugh get stuck with the label "commie" or "libtard".
Having said that, I believe in humanitarianism - treating all others with dignity and respect and holding human life above material possessions as a
value system. I also think that the sick, old, and young should be taken care of and that paying taxes is the premium one pays to live in a nation
with infrastructure and has a standard of seeking to promote the general welfare of it's citizens.
These days that seems to make me more dangerous than Marx to many folks who have bought into the Ayn Rand ideology.
With those caveats in mind - I have had severe reactions to nearly every SSRI/SSNRI and bi and tricyclic antidepressant on the planet. I once listed
every one that the doctors have demanded I try and it took up over a full notebook page. Currently I am on an amazingly low dose of Celexa ( 20 mg
once a day ) and can tolerate the side effects, though they are still very much there. Constant body and head aches predominantly.
