this is a super interesting thread.

I'm from an uber middle class background too. However all of the non-state therapy (UK + US) I've received has been out of my own wallet. I frequently wonder/worry if I'd even be here (my dx is severe TRD) if I hadn't the money to go private. I also frequently lament the 10's of $K's I've spent on so-far ineffective treatment.

One senior state PDoc told me after my first TCA failed that "there's nothing else for you to try". Having internet access I knew he was wrong and in fact wrote to the health department to complain bitterly. He may be right but what if he tells that to some old/poorer person with no internet or the inclination to verify his statement? They'll believe him and suffer until they die. Horrific.


I love the smell of Abilify in the morning. The smell, you know that chemical smell. Smells like victory. Some day this war's gonna end...
