Hi, sorry if this gets posted twice, I thought I had replied but haven't seen it show up.

I do understand your concern. But of course, what I eventually write will depend on what I learn as I do the reporting -- which is why I hope some of you will talk to me, so I can accurately reflect your views. If I have an angle, it is simply that it seems the degree to which people are taking charge of their own pyschological medicine is growing significantly, and that is worth noting. People aren't necessarily "defying" doctors, but they feel like doctors aren't enough, that they often know better themselves what they need, in part because of access to forums like this. Feel free to agree or disagree -- I'm here to learn.
thanks
amy

> The way Ms. Harmon states, "growing number of Americans who are self-diagnosing their own ailments and self-prescribing their own remedies." does worry me. Maybe I am taking this personally, but it makes us babblers sound like non compliant patients who are defying are psychiatrists and "self-diagnosing" and "self-prescribing" (I don't know how else to self prescribe medication except somehow obtaining illegal drugs.) I would hate to see this site protraited as such ...
