No offense taken, Shelli
In fact, I do believe both Dick and I would agree with everything you say here. Out of context is a strange thing...maybe you will go to our site and read the longer piece, either the intro chapter to Undoing or Chapter One of Active. At this point I'm not sure where anything is from. But all the material is free so check it out and then see where you disagree.
On a even lighter note, the author and I are not about to take away your antidepressants...please don't take away ours either.
> As Shar, I have made many positive changes in life due to developing an openness in therapy. They have been changes that I have made while also taking antidepressants to stay stable enough to allow me to see the possibilities. While I don't expect to stay in therapy the rest of my life; I do expect to be on medication the rest of my life.

> Perhaps I am taking what was written out of context, but, in looking at what was presented, it is way too close to "you lazy and self-indulgent person, if you change your attitude we can help you change. Will the writer take away my antidepressants also? Shelli
