I think we are thinking along the same lines.

I think that medications have their place but these days it is as if drug companies are trying to get as many people to take their drugs as possable. As a result, the symptoms of depression become less severe.

Now, two weeks of "Not feeling as good as you used to be" necessitates a full dose of an SSRI.

I never thought I would be one of those "antipsychiatry" type of people. Especially after I had such an amazing recovery. Perhaps we are just some of the unfortunate ones in that our drugs don't seem to keep working, but I think it is more than that.

I think even the idea of "getting help" was an amazing step.

Perhaps its just me, but I get profoundly depressed when I hear about the number of people who take these medications. You'd like to be able to think that your problems are because of something wrong with you. But if everybody takes them, then there's really nothing wrong with you.
