'Scuse me, but I didn't make any harsh or unfair accusations. Read my post again. I'm not just bipolar, but a former employee of NAMI Friends. Having actually been paid to deal with an awful lot of actively sick people I know just how common unsupervised experimentation is and just how rampant street drug use is among the seriously psychiatricly ill. There are too many dual diagnoses people around who'll take anything in any combination, and then put blue cheese dressing on it to see if that warning is bogus too. I've seen many things posted at this site that I find absolutely hair curling.
Choice of words and how information is couched are the most important skills pdocs learn as they start residecy (at a decent program) and I would think that psych lifers would have picked up the appropriate forms by the second hospitalization. Do you want to be responsible for putting bad ideas into the heads of people with impaired judgement? Somebodys cerebral bleed is mighty bad karma to bring down on yourself. Watch what you say and say it appropriately. "You should ask your doctor about..." is the easiest form of this. It's called an admonition in the trade . It sets boundaries for behaviors and avoids another word you may want to become familiar with- liability. That would be a legal term.
I think that if you ask Dr. Goldberg about this whole issue he'll back me up.
