I'm afraid I have to line up behind "Weary." I had come to know PsychoBabble as a place to ask specific questions about symptoms of mental illness, AD's, side effects, etc. and receive a *specific* answer. Lately, it seems that unless posters are witty, well-spoken and well-read, they are too boring or too much of a downer to be bothered with.

Some of us are truly ill and in desperate need of plain old advice. Absolutely no digs intended here, but we don't have the strength to wade through multi-paragraphed monologues which contain words like "palimbsests." We aren't ready right now (and may never be) to read in-depth descriptions of experiences with sexual appliances. We are having a hard enough time getting out of bed, trying to keep our jobs and keep food on our tables, much less converse about Zen and the "down & dirty" of Tom Waits. Sure, we envy and applaud your energy and enthusiasm and your ability to form several cohesive sentences in a row - but downright depresses us further. This was supposed to be our place to go for help. And PLEASE resist the urge to yank an old 87-thread-long post out of the archives and bring it forward to make one more comment. Start a new post, will ya?

Perhaps there should be a separate "Community" BB called "PsychoBabble-On-and-On" for the high achievers. Hopefully, some of us will join you there when we're feeling better.

I know the full moon has passed and I've taken my meds, so I guess it's time to try the herbal tea?
