Sharing is Caring!
I stopped taking anti-depressants because there's an increased risk of suicide.
The whole mental health industry is a bit of a sham. Why do I write this?
Apparently people experiencing depression have a chemical imbalance. However, when I was first prescribed medication, I was unaware of the chemical test that the psychiatrist or counselor performed. As yet, I have not been surveyed thoroughly and thus medication seems an ill fit.
I am a bit of a skeptic when it comes to medication in general and when this medication can actually cause me to harm myself, I have to make the decision to just say no.
Talk about drug policy, this whole industry over-prescribes and over-diagnoses people and leaves them in a worse position than they were initially. The only medication I need is a positive support network. I've already found that in the people I interact with once a week at Mount Ararat Baptist Church. I also found that in my friends who knew me prior to this mis-diagnosis.
A question that sometimes drives me hazy, am I or are others crazy?
People may think it's weird that I write so openly about these things, but writing is the only form of therapy that actually works. My counselor is a businesswoman and my psychiatrist is a businessman. They really cannot help me solve my problems and they have a vested interest in keeping me drugged up.
