Joe, thanks for sharing your analogy. It works for a point. I think of ADs not as tape to fix the wire, but like adding more electricity to flow through the wire. The problem is that it might address the problem, but it also adds too much juice that causes other problems. I agree with you that people need to get with the idea that the brain can malfunction just like any other organ. But I don't write off therapy as you appear to do. Since the duct tape is possibly an adequate but not ideal solution, as you mentioned, we can't replace the wires, the therapy can help us to strengthen other working parts so that we are not taxing that poor fragile taped up wire so much. I think the brain is highly complex and the interrelationship between the equipment we are born with and how it develops as we grow and experience life, is so intertwined. For me, anyway, both psychopharm and psychotherapy are essential, as are other ways of shoring myself up.
