Well, I'm feeling pretty negative right now but surely either a drug works or it doesn't? An aspirin doesn't take a headache away because you think it will take it away it, well not with me anyway.
When I take Zyprexa (touch wood it'll keep working) it makes me feel better and takes all my anxiety and suicidal thoughts away. I never expected it to do that it just did it and I'm terrified that one day it will stop doing that.
When I first ever took an antidepressant when I was 24 I never expected it to work because I didn't think I was depressed at the time but it did, it worked within 24 hours. When I started taking Seroxat again in my 30s I expected it to work because it had in the past but it didn't work and I was devastated, if there is such a thing as mind over matter it doesn't work for me that's for sure.
