Change places with me for a session I had with a client that I will never forget. He/she decided to stop meds because they were "bad". This person, even though they said "everything is ok" at the same time raised a shirtsleve to let me know the truth. The old pattern of self mutlation had started again...a straight razor was used to hack at legs and arms and infection had set in, new scars on top of old. The meds his doc had him/her on stopped this.

"Just more noise to ignore"? You have no clue as to what damage meds can do. Your success with meds has left you know empathy for those who loathe them becasue they made their situation a thousand fold worse. ITS A FACT, SOMETIMES MEDICATION IS A WRONG, DEADLY CHOICE. Your story is very touching, and medicine may have helped this particular person, but don't dismiss other people's convictions about medication. It can damage lives as quick as it helps. And I wouldn't lump me into the "People with their comfortable lives of normalcy", as I have suffered from depression off and on for 20 years, but have almost had my life ended by
"medication". You need to keep an mind, also.
