> Seriously I've wanted to ask this for a long time. But being a people pleaser didn't want to. But from reading this board for two years now. I know one person that has gotten well. One that has almost gotten rid of all her symtoms with a lot of hard work. So how come people keep adding meds to their list of the meds they are taking . Making it harder to know what meds help if they do or make them worse? I mean this. As I saw the same thing in the hospital. Granted it's been over 8 years but it can't have changed as my own pdoc asked me why I ever want to work on psych again as people in her words are not right (wanted to say the word she used but figured it was uncivil) there. I was shocked to hear her say this but it makes me wonder are we harming ourselves more with meds for depression and anxiety and thinking we deserve things that are grand and glorious without working to get them? I'm not trying to make anyone mad or angry . Just a question I've had for a long time. I'd love to put to rest and not think so much about meds you know? Love Phillipa

This has always been my point, Phillipa. Med's help considerably but are not the entire answer. I was well for over 10 years without meds, and only after developing all sorts of physical problems including needing neurosurgery did I start to get depressed. I still work in psychology and am taking medication for depression as you know, and I anticipate the there will be the day I don't need antidepressant medication anymore once I can come to terms with a few things.
