> 1. From the perspective of someone looking for information, how do you decide what information to trust? What leads you to trust a web site? Another group member?

I follow my inner voice which rarely steers me in the wrong direction. I also check out what I pick up here with my pdoc.

Trusting a web site comes over time. If I read information which turns out to be true and it is helpful over time, I tend to trust it more.

I tend to use others in the group as support. I don't know very many people in my life who are taking psychotropic drugs and who are being treated for depression and OCD. I can see that I am not alone. I can also learn how others have dealt with the same illnesses I have.

> 2. From the perspective of someone providing information, do you just pass it on, or do you try to present it in a certain way?

I pass on information as it relates to me. I try to explain that it is all my subjective experience. When asked for advise I always refer people to their pdoc or their gp. I am not a doctor. My experience may be valuable to another and I know that I cannot make theraputic decisions for anyone else but me. And I only make those decisions after much research and much consultation with my pdoc. In fact I've never gone against the advise of my pdoc. I do decide to follow his advise. There is always a choice. I could always find a second opinion. ;-)
