    You oughta see the list I have to take.

    I’ve tried the antidepressant “therapy” before and found out just how addictive they are. I may not get a scrip refilled and picked up before I run out, and you just don’t do that with the so called antidepressants. Finding myself throwing kitchen implements around one evening kinda clued me in.

    Aaaand, when it comes to talk of a “reset” button, anarchy or other such supposedly necessary disruption in our society – self preservation insists that the supply chains remain unbroken for this fat boy.

    bad night again?
    Forgive me, I don’t quite understand the logic of taking more antidepressants if the mood fails to lighten from the lower dosage. Isn’t it just means that a particular drug doesn’t work? If feeling less depressed without the drug, what’s the point of taking it and making yourself feel worse?

    I realize this is not what the doctors might tell you; this is a conversation I regularly have with my mom. She’s a thyroid malfunction; a chronic condition, which her doctor told is kept in check by application of a particular hormone. Once she started on it, however, she feels worse – irritable, sometimes teary, light-headed (could easily fall down the stairs), fatigued, etc. When asked, the doctor’s advice is to increase the dosage. Huh?
