Its taking informed consent -- knowing the major side effects and benefits and deciding on it.

There generally are no "cures" for biological illnesses, there are palliatives, medication that allow those of us afflicted with whatever may affect us to function better.

Biological imbalances wax and wane, that's why they're imbalances. Nothing is perfect in nature.

And the same can be said for any medical treatment one might need at a hospital -- one has to outweigh, will it benefit my life so I can enjoy being around my family and friends even if the side effects are a risk, or do I just put up with an illness knowing that I will feel better regardless of its course. That may be a bit of a downer, but it is how we make choices in life.

Its no more easy for me to have to than I'm sure many others here probably think the same thing.
