Interesing analogy JM. However I don't buy the arguement that ADs are the main answer and that once one has the proper tape/AD affixed that's the end of that task. Other possibilites exist which may not be so cleancut and clinical and widely accepted and I'll be dammed if I'm going to settle for a life of being held together by duct tape...I applaud those who look beyond ADs, while using them to get from point A to B in the interim...

> Credit is due all here who engage in good counsel, good lifestyle. These obvisouly bring improvement. A nice new paint job. But it doesn't repair that broken wire. Not in the eye, the bones, the kidneys, or....the brain. Credit is even more due those attempting to fix the core problem. Antidepressants. I applaud all here who recognize that the brain is an organ like any other, and when it malfunctions it manifests itself in behavior. I applaud the strength and determination of those who struggle with their drugs to eventually fix the real problem. ...
> So no matter what we do...paint job, tires, CD player, willpower, gasoline, yoga, climbing mountains, standing on our heads, whatever... any improvement will always be less than normal potential till the underlying malfuction is treated. Now, let's assume we've repaired that wire. We've found an AD that works and we can tolerate. The wire no longer misfires. Ok. Keep that electrical tape applied. Dont' want the same problem to return.
