It seems like the tone of the site has changed in recent years.I rememember the days when scott and andrewb exchanged great info on their drug trials and their knowledge on the workings of the brain and the effects on meds on that process.
While some of that still happens their is more and more venting about worthless p-docs and worthless meds. That has to be discouraging to new people who come here for med info. We should look to Scott as one who has perservered through a severe illness and is making progress on meds.I noticed he has decided not to participate in Babble right now. I wonder if all the med bashing is influencing his decision.We have to work with the meds that are available. I don't think it's a plot to give us substandard meds.The pharama companies are working on new psychotropic meds all the time.
I'm not saying we all have to take meds but I thought the original design of this board was to have a place for people to come for med info.I personally think it's selfish for someone to start threads on the worthless meds and p-docs when things may not be working out for them. Do you realize how demoralizing and damaging that could be for someone just starting on a course of therapy and meds and having some hope. Why take away their hope.
If one does not believe in meds Dr. Bob has other boards that may be a better place to look for info.I'm sorry for anyone's suffering but it's not fair to take other people's hope's away by posting threads about MEDS DONT'T WORK and P-DOCS are horrible.I to will probably stop posting and just drop by now and than to see if there is some useful info. Right now I find all the ranting and negativity just confuses my situation. I think one has to find a p-doc they trust and stay the course. I think to many conflicting opinions makes it really difficult to determine and stay the course. Learn to trust your own judgement. Why have to ask other people what to do. What makes you think their judgement is of more value than yours.
