emme, chujoe thanks for the answers. I go over the same questions in my head all the time so it is
good to get others perspectives.
It is quite possible I was being treated for adolescence. I think I do have underlying issues. I am prone to anxiety and mild depression. Once thing I am certain off is that I have been over medicated, and medicated on the side effects of previous drugs. It is also evident that either the quailtiy of psych doctors in australia is apalling or I have lucked out with the ones I have seen.
49er, dont worry I am not holding you repsonsible for my decision to discontinue medication. I have made that decision myself. All I was saying is that my best resource, seeing the medical system has completly failed me is people who have done what I am planning to do, like yourself. We all rely on our peers for advice on psych meds.
This whole forum is based on exactly that.
SLS I think 49er has the right to take his perspective and offer advice based on his own experiences. I have read PB for a while and I have noticed you offer all sorts of advice on what medications could be helpful.
I don't know if you are a psychiatrist or a trained medical professional but it seems a bit hypocritical to be critisizing
49er as you are doing the exact same thing albeit from an opposite perspective.
