I'm over hating meds, but I am skeptical. I do better now keeping the meds minimal and doing things (lots of antioxidants, orthomolecular style) to prevent+treat side effects than I ever did with lots of benzos and stimulants and therapy.
My opinion on psychiatry has really changed, too. I think psychiatry is helpful if you have severe problems, but I'm not so sure it helps in more moderate cases of various "issues." In fact, I think in those cases they can cause more harm than good, just in my opinion.
Unfortunately for me, I am one of those people with severe issues. I'm glad I can take Abilify and not, I dunno, high dose haldol or something, but its still a less-than-ideal situation. Just gotta accept it, I guess.
