I would like you to read this blog and the comments. http://bizarrocomic.blogspot.com/2009/02/sad-stereotypes.html
I made a comment on it today as I truely believe I do owe my life to prescription medications. Without them, I might be dead. Why? Because I have bipolar disorder. Drugs help me to function. Therapy helps me to function. My friends and dear husband help me to function, but I couldn't handle life without the drugs. What Dan said in his post today is true. Naysayers should have to walk a mile in our mocassins as they do not know what true depression is, if they have never been clinically depressed.
