I don't believe in that "You can't help or fix other people no matter how hard you try" stuff. I do understand you can only help other people if
they're trying to help themselves, but to think that you can't make any difference to your friends and loved ones isn't true, because when I was
going through the same thing, other people made a difference to me.
I also don't think anti-depressants work very well. When I was on them, at first it made me very monotone and blank, then after a couple months, it
started making me see and hear things. Other people I knew on anti-depressants have either become really blank--lost their drive completely--or they
experience the adverse scary part, the hallucinating. Along with that, I am kind of a believer in the "medication is brainwash" kind of things. I
really think it has bad effects on the mind--and if you listen to the commercials, it has bad effects on the rest of you, too. I don't know much
about anxiety medication, and I know my friend used to take them, and technically she's still supposed to be taking them... but I've only known her
for about a year, and I didn't know her when she was on her meds, so I'm not sure if it helps her much or not.
She's not just seeking attention, she's got a serious problem... and thank you for all your perspectives, God bless
