Elizabeth... you wrote this to me.... I didn't write it. Check the thread or do whatever you need to do.... but I am soooo tired of people taking pieces of a thread and directing it at me... WHEN I DIDN'T EVEN WRITE IT!!!!!!

We use ADs to eliminate existing dysfunction, not to create new dysfunctions. Those of us who use opioids as antidepressants are well aware of this and do not seek to get high from our medication.
