No one was suggesting Noa think happy thoughts and it would all go away. The suggestion was that
he had a lot to deal with at the moment, and that if he was feeling himself becoming less happy, it
might be due to a normal response to stress vs. a failure of the medication. Life events need to
be taken into account.

It's no less absurd to assume that the sun will start shining out your behind if you put a happy
face to adversity than it is to assume it all will go away with the right pill. I'm not trivializing
Noa's disorder or his situation. I've felt bad enough to know better. Medication changes can be
disruptive enough. The decision ought to be weighed carefully, especially in a time of turmoil.
That's all.
