Please don't jump to conclusions about others or post anything that could lead them to feel accused.
But please don't take this personally, either, this doesn't mean I don't like you or think you're a bad person.
If you or others have questions about this or about posting policies in general, or are interested in alternative ways of expressing yourself, please see the FAQ:
> For some reason, people get angry at the suggestion they might benefit from other interventions, in addition to their medication.
You can lead a horse to other interventions, but you can't make him drink them. :-)
> People think that, if they benefit from medication, and somebody challenges the efficacy of that medication, the person is suggesting that their depression is "all in their head", and that conclusion is not correct either.
There might be more supportive or educational ways to resp ond than by challenging them...
