Maybe you don't get many invitations to parties because you always turn them down?

You know how it works. People will just stop asking. So you have to invite yourself.

Oh, well maybe you're right. The fight does take a lot out of you. Mine started when I was 34, so I had youth on my side.

I'm confused. Who's forcing whom to take these drugs? Are you in the US? I've never been forced to take medications.

I will say that I've voluntarily been through trials of a large number of different medications, but have insisted on trying only one from each class of drug and similar mechanism of action. For example, if one SSRI doesn't work for me, my issue is likely not serotonin reuptake, so it's senseless to try another SSRI with the same mechanism. Let's move on to a SNRI and see if norepinephrine is the issue. Make sense?

Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places?

Living is hard... I mean, you literally have to try not to die constantly.

I've rarely tried not to do. In fact, I have several bus drivers who could attest to that fact, assuming they still recognise me. :P

kids in the USA are not pressured to take meds ?
this would be a good topic - list the number of people who were pressured to take meds .
and how they got into that situation .

guessing the main reason - ironically - would be for getting caught / arrested for drug use .

another example - I tried to make an appointment with the shrink clinic I was going to several years ago because of work .
the woman / secretary insisted that I could only come in for medication .
refuse to take meds - no appointment -

just thought of one of my originals - tv show about mental illness . think I had it on vhs tape
a labeled paranoid schizophrenic living near nyc grand central station / Manhattan
talking to his case worker , needed a place to stay and eyeglasses - his were broken , only one good lens.

case worker said he had to take meds first .
month later he was dead .
I remember thinking anyone who can survive there has to be smarter / tougher then me

It's usually the opposite in the US. You generally have to go through months of therapy with a psychologist first before you even get to see a psychiatrist...unless you have medical records with a history of diagnoses. Otherwise, it's a waiting list for medication.

It's a different story if you're Court-ordered into therapy because you've committed a crime. There are times when the Court will make therapy a condition of probation. But no one can force you to take medication against your will in the US...unless you're institutionalized in lieu of a prison sentence.

I've known accredited psychologists who would not undertake talk therapy unless the patient was taking some form of medication, usually lithium. The reason they gave was that they didn't have the time to deal with strong emotional outbursts. Mostly, I think, they simply couldn't handle it, so they avoided such situations.

As a Crisis counsellor, I frequently dealt with strong emotions, the training is not all that rigorous, though it does seem to need the right temperament. I never referred anyone to those psychologists.

Turps has its place in society. How else would you get oil-based paint of your hands?
