Dear Amy,

May I ask whom else, or rather which other disease groups have you included in this upcoming article? Whom else have you found also "self-diagnose" and "self prescribe" .... diabetics? stroke victims? alcoholics? Or is it just us with mood disorders at "psychobabble?"



> Hi, I'm a reporter with the New York Times. I’m looking for people to interview for an article about the growing number of Americans who are self-diagnosing their own ailments and self-prescribing their own remedies. The idea is to document an emerging medical culture in which people rely on their own instincts and knowledge gleaned from the collective wisdom in communities like the Psycho-Babble boards to figure out what they need to feel better, instead of (or in addition to) the traditional doctor’s advice. If you’re willing to share your experiences on this subject, please email me at and let me know how best to contact you. If privacy is a concern, I would not necessarily need to use your name in the article.
