When I talk about working on your mind, I am not necessarily talking about going to see a therapist. It could be self-therapy. I, like a lot of you, have gone to therapists which made me feel worse.

All of this is a simple point: I think in order to have the best success, you first and foremost find the right meds. That's 75-percent of it. Then, once you find something that helps, you have to sustain or build on that with working on your thoughts and/or changing your attitude.

It's like this, to give a simple example: When I found something that helped me, my mind would repeatedly say "This med is working, but when it will stop working?" or "This med surely can't be helping me like this because none of the past meds helped." Those were thoughts of defeat for me.

I should've been saying "Yee haw, I finally found something that helps. It is possible!" and build momentum from there.

I just think this is the path for people who suffer with mild forms of depression and anxiety. For others with bipolar and schiz, all of these posts do not apply to you. I have no way of relating to you.

One last thing: For all of those who are posting on this topic, I appreciate each and every one of you for the feedback. I respect your opinion and look forward to hearing more of your insight. Nothing hurts my feelings. That's what this board is for, to voice your opinion. Michael
