Mental illness seems to be progressive; that's the underlying truth that makes me skeptical of such claims. Yeah, sometimes i think my recent GAD symptoms are the result of protracted use of xxRIs-I still think about that. I'll never know. What I think mostly about now, however, is moving forward.

But think about the onset of mental illness. Ok, I realize coming from non-scientific Garnet isn't what anyone would necessarily believe, but isn't the average age of onset of schitzophrenia something like 28 years old? And what are "mental breakdowns" - now believed to be mental "breakthroughs"? Underlying predispositions?

If enviornment is 50% and genetics is 50% (in regard to mental illness), then wouldn't the brain have evolved, in whatever way it changed, partly from its life before psychiatric drugs were introduced?

Still, I like to hear all the anti-psych stuff. I think its important to evaluate things from all angles. Influence is just that. Influence from those groups or individuals that have the most money. Everything is a result of monetary dynamics, no matter how you look at it. So keep talking. That's what dialogue is for. Please stay open minded.
