spidey posted a topic in Relationships and social lifeI apologize in advance for the topic. It is like beating a dead horse discussing this, I swear. Was getting pretty upset this morning going through the comments section of a video on youtube discussing the common side effects associated with antidepressants. So many people on there singing the praises of these drugs. Crediting them with saving their lives. I have several family members that still, even after witnessing what I went through (which would have scared me into questioning the legitimacy of psychiatric claims if I had been on the outside looking in) still insist that they have a "condition" that requires drugs to treat. The comments section was filled with people saying that claims of antidepressants causing an increase in violent behavior is pseudoscience, and that the drugs help far more often than they harm. The only way to see is to know, evidently. Shames me to think that I used to be one of them. Ignorant and hopeful. Wouldn't be on this site today if not for my trusting of these drugs and those that prescribed them to me. I know I can do nothing. I realize that it is a complete waste of my time and energy to become upset over something that I will never have any influence over. Still, I am filled with rage thinking of everyone on here, everyone around the world that has had their life stolen in one way or another thanks to this aggressive and lethal "answer" to emotional upsets. Our stories will be buried somewhat in the void of disbelief. We are thought of as crazy, our experiences as anomalies, or as merely craving attention and lying for the sake of it. I feel defeated, and somewhat alone.
