To Dr. Bob, Scott, et al

Posted by kagome on March 28, 2012, at 17:38:39

I'm new to this message board and I'm not sure how much right I have to say anything, especially in a new thread, but I don't know where else to put this. "Psycho-babble medication" has been the best thing to happen to me in the past month, and yet unless something changes I think I have to leave for my mental health.

I just don't understand why, on a MEDICATION message board, I have to receive messages that are eerily similar to the anti-med judgments of my friends, family, and acquaintances. I come here for non-judgmental information, advice, and support. Yet it seems almost half the threads turn into yet another pro-med/anti-med debate. I see over and over again people being banned for a week for saying something against Lou, yet no one was banned when I specifically asked to not get any more anti-med messages due to feeling suicidal and expressly triggered (Lou's messages were mostly suicide information regarding people on meds), and was immediately written to again. No one was banned when I was called anti-semitic (I'm half Jewish, btw) for complaining about my very personal thread being turned into a platform on which to deliver anti-med rants.

Obviously I haven't been here long, I haven't been much help and no one will miss me. Still, it's a very sad missed opportunity for me, because I was very excited about the support and information I received here and got nowhere else.

Thanks to everyone for your help and support, especially Phillipa, Bleuberry, B2chica, g_g_g unit. and most especially Scott. I almost put this on the "appreciate Scott" thread but wasn't sure if that was appropriate. However, Scott, I can't tell you how much you've helped me, in terms of information, ideas for meds, support in general, ways to explain to my p-doc that interest in meds simply shows that I still have hope, and above all, the inspiration that comes from you doing so well so that I can keep that hope alive. I very much hope you continue to do great and that you are always given the support you give others.

Good luck, all

Remembered, if outlived,
As freezing persons recollect the Snow-
First Chill, then Stupor - then the Letting Go.
