No one called you a "pill popper", and I believe everyone that responded including myself took pains to state explicitly that we were concerned and not demeaning you. You are the one who drew those inferences and perhaps attributed those qualities to yourself. Furthremore, what drugs you are taking is not relevant so much as the sheer number of prescriptions. We can only go on what information you give us.

And there are no "good" and "bad" drugs. Whether you smoked a cigarette or not is of no concern. Those are arbitrary sociopolitical categorizations that have nothing to do with mental health. If you told me you were taking two grams of heroin a day as a sole medication because that is what enabled you to live a fulfilling, satisfying life, I would say "congratulations on finding your path." If you or anyone told me they were taking seven "approved-by-the-man" psychiatric drugs, loathed their body, and struggled with severe anxiety, I would urge them to examine their situation.

No one here was demanding that you be perfect, you know. And certainly it makes no sense to levy accusations of "pill popping" given we're all speaking on a medication support group board! My own history of drug abuse is certainly way worse than yours will likely ever be.

It is counterproductive to ask for help from fairly objective strangers and then put up all your defenses when the people that care enough to respond do so. I do not enjoy writing posts like my first response to you; it just seemed like the right thing to say given what you expressed.

May I suggest that you examine your response to what at most was constructive criticism (unless I missed some nasty posting to you) in light of your eating disorder. "Perfection is the enemy of good" holds especially true with the human psyche.
I know this both from years of trials and tribulations, many credits of philosophy classes, and countless hours on the analyst's couch.

I hope you find contentment a lot sooner than I think I will.
