Also i firmly believe that they do just label a majority of people as depressed because it is a blanket and covers alot of symptoms, remember
depression does not come from within it is due to external factors.
Not necessarily a true statement. Depression is a disease of the brain. Outside factors are an aggravating factor.
Depression is a whole body problem, not just the brain. There are organs below the neck that affect the entire pulley system of neurotransmitters up
there. When the psych pills go into your system, they can ruin other body systems to get a brain effect. There is no actual test on the brain to
determine which pill to take. Heart arrythmias, weight gain into obesity, diabetes, stroke, blood pressure problems, and my favorite, jerky shaky
limbs for life... these are some "side effects" of the drugs they give people, in the process of finding something that fits, which add to a mood
condition in real life. Psychiatrists don't look at that, and the majority of them don't even refer people to a different doctor that could take
They test the blood to make sure there is the drug churning through the body at all times, not the brain. All your other glands that influence
emotion -- pituitary, thyroid, adrenal glands for example -- they aren't checked, but they could be the problem, especially with depression. It could
be an infection or cancer affecting the mood!
Depression is externally caused too. Society events make it; who isn't influenced by what they say on the news? For example, homelessness causes
depression. A pill doesn't fix that. A social worker might. Diet is a factor; it could be a nutritional deficiency. Money usually is a factor.
Morality is a factor; if you think you are a good person or a bad person that influences your mood.
Morality is a big factor recently in the news with shooters. Bad man, go to the psych ward, take a pill to fix things? No, people, that's not how
it's done; there is no "murderer" hormone in the brain. Medication as punishment for bad deeds is being suggested, and it's wrong. History of being
medicated influencing your constitutional rights is wrong too. Morality doesn't come from a chemical balance or imbalance. An institution of mind
altering medication goes against basic human rights, like the right to say what goes in one's own body. This is the pill panic being sold to people
without an answer for society. You can't zombie out or stupid out the pain real life causes. You have to feel it.
