Dr. B, IMHO, Those able to GET to PB or PSB are already a level or so above the "average" person treated for psyscho/social disorders. As such, I would think this forum would have to be looked at exclusively as a distinct and unique source of data, not applicable to the "world at large". Of course, that is your interest, I guess, to discern how the net works in therapy.

Careful? I doubt anybody runs out and pops the first pill that someone else suggests is just the ticket for them. I Do believe that many people are nascent in their knowledge level about treatment options. So many people have been conditioned to believe that Doctors are demigods, and their counsel never to be questioned. I have two family members who are physicians, they are no more intelligent than me, just more dedicated. I can glean relevant information from a variety of objective sources, and make my own educated conclusions on most medical issues. What I DO lack is clinical observation, and the requisite first-hand observation that I will never be able to attain. My point (yes, I was trying to make one) is that Docs are NOT perfect, are NOT the last word, and ARE human and as such are just as vulnerable to error as the rest of us.

What PB and PSB provide is a sounding board inabling us to find an objectivity ammended by ancedotal experiences of others. In this capacity, the board is extemely useful.
