wow, a rather unwise stance but ok, its a free world.
how do you think people get prescriptions in the first place? from a doctor. up until the post I've quoted now, you've said nothing about
doctors. you're just beating your therapy drum over and over. and no, I don't think therapy is necessary in all cases. a visit to a psychiatrist is.
as anyone who's been throught the mental health system knows, seeing a psychatrist is not therapy. psychiatrists just evaluate symptoms and monitor
drugs. therapists do nothing to evaluate drugs. if you tell them anything about your drugs, they'll refer you to your psychiatrist because drugs are
not their field.
this is stuff that is second nature to anyone that's been through the mental health system. I don't believe you have any clue what it's like and
what is involved. and stop being so combative. what is wrong with you?

what do you think a psychiatrist is??? a D O C T O R
apparently i have to explain every little thing for you in order for you to understand this.
regular doctors dont know how to regulate psych medicines as they dont have the specific knowledge for treating psychological problems, mostly
PHYSICAL problems. thats where a psychologist comes in with regular visits to monitor his patients progress or lack thereof, make a record of it and
try to find new ways to treat them in the future. you cant and shouldnt just hand out pills and then do once a year visits, its dangerous and doesnt
help the patient anywhere near as much as regular visits would. a more detailed history will give any doctor a better chance of prescribing something
that will help more than simply saying "ok well they have these symptons, here is a prescription for (insert drug here) see you next year!"
who did you think i was refering to when i said therapy? bill gates? therapy/doctors, again i wasnt aware i had to explain this to you.
