I think part of the issue is that complaining about negativity on Dr. Bob's site because of what one sees on the PB board is like complaining that the ESPN site is oriented to violence because it has a forum for boxing fans.

The reality is that PB is just a portion of Dr. Bob's site and, when you look at the site as a whole, there's a balance to be found. It's not quite as rosy of a balance as you might find if you visit the boards at some general blog like Fark, but it's also not just a "graveyard of suffering." Mental health issues tend to involve sadness and pain, and sites devoted to helping people with these important issues are going to reflect that reality.

Further, with respect to the PB board itself, I don't know why anyone would expect to find anything but what we see here. From my long-term experience with the pharmaceuticals for depression, bipolar, and OCD, every new med my doctors prescribe throws me into a pretty vicious cycle of hope and despair. Far too many meds are simply not effective or impair daily living to such an extent that the costs far exceed their benefits. The proliferation of these experiences tends to be reflected in the atmosphere of PB. I got a sense from reading your initial post that you were, at least in part, commenting on that, but I'm not sure.
