I agree. Although I wouldn't take untested drugs or be part of drugs trials (they wouldn't let me for one) I NEED my medication to survive. If I
didn't take my medication, I would die.
Now I'm not talking about a psychological problem here, I'm talking about diabetes. So it's not really the same kettle of fish, but it's the same
I got flamed for getting the cervical cancer/flu vac's. And yet, if I got hit by flu, I'd be more likely to have serious problems than other people.
And frankly I don't want that.
If my meds were switched for something else, I'd be a goner.
It's nice to see someone else who shares my opinions. I know this is a conspiricy site, but with some problems, especially depression and other
psychological disorders, I'm sorry but you need to go and see a doctor not listen to people on the internet. If the meds don't work, switch 'em.
That's what the doctors are here for.
I've only read a couple of posts here before replying, but I don't believe the OP has cured themselves of depression, and I think the support of
modern medicine helps a lot. Even if they are placebos (which I'm pretty sure they're not), if it helps you feel better, do it. I also know someone
who committed suicide because of not seeking help over depression, which was absolutely horrendous. So it's pretty clear to me that it's much better
to get treatment than not.
I know the big pharmo corps are all about money, especially at the top, but what about the other people who've done a lot of good work and are
villified constantly when people forget this? Some people do actually care. I know this especially since I know the pros and cons first hand.
I also know more than most about the downside to meds, especially from the past. So don't hit me with that or I'll start talking about chirality to
my hearts content.
Rant over. Thanks for the thread OP S&F.
