Hi, everyone,

> Babble is a very good name for this sight. I see very few positive postings. Most are from those who have no intention of getting better... Pretty sad. This is from somebody who needed help, was smart enough to get it and stick with it, and didn't want to bother the rest of the general population. This is not a very good support sight.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone reading this, especially if they were already down on themselves, would feel accused of not being positive, not intending to get better, not being smart enough, and being a bother.

> As for the peron who said to "get off the site and never come back"...

And that wasn't the most empathic response, either.

> As to all of the people who told me that I made assumptions, they made an incredible lot of assumptions about me.

I think that's true. I wonder if some of it had to do with this "positive" and "negative".

> I am not better. If I where better, I would not be in therapy or taking drugs.(1 drug)...
> I came to this site confused because I was afraid of the drug I was perscribed. After reading the postings, I was terrified.

Maybe "negative" was meant to refer to how much attention is paid to side-effects here. Maybe posts about success stories, or at least about "sticking with" medications despite their side-effects, would have been considered more "positive".

However, I think others took "negative" to refer to themselves, to imply that they weren't being supportive of others. Which of course isn't the case.

> All I really wanted to say was just give your therapist or psych doc a chance. Is that such a rude, with out manners, anti interpersonal thing to say?

I think there was a misunderstanding. I may be wrong, but I hope this can be put to rest and we can go on from here.
