I myself only really take medicine if I have some form of infection that requires good old Pencillin, other than that I see no real point.

I don't use modern medicine. When I have a headache, I don't take tylenol or whatever. When I have the flu, I don't go to the doctor for a prescription. I do use herbal medicine.

First of all, ADHD should not be considered any type of psychological condition. Those kids are just fucked in the head because of something in their environment or bad parenting skills.
Secondly, for the adults that are clinically depressed and have SAD, post-partum and bipolar you really can't say a damn thing about growing up. Those people have problems and in some cases only medication will help their brains to stay leveled and balanced.


i call bullshit. i was diagnosed "depressed" at 15 years old. what 15 year old is depressed? the losers without friends. depression is bullshit, its being sad. big fuckin deal. get over it. post partum depression? so you're upset you had a baby. think it will ruin your life. well it probably will. people with this "condition" are people who didn't think a baby was part pf their lives. well SURPRISE SLUT!! it is. deal with it. bipolar? thats the biggest joke of all. its called a clinical term for DRAMA QUEEN! so you're a moody little bitch. GROW THE FUCK UP and learn to control yourself and life wont be that god damn hard. you dont need a pill for it. a pill will not help.


It dosent matter who you are or how much money or fun you have. Anyone can have a chemical imbalance. naturally my seretonin levels are high and I have low levels of dopamine and noripenepherin. Anyone can have depression. I'm manic.

The problem for psychological disorders is the broard range that medications cover.

To clarify like on the above issue - How much is a chemical imbalance, and how much of it is psychological?

Yes if it is psychological you dont "need" a pill. But if its a chemical imbalance there is really nothing else you can do.

I think yes and no. I myself will not even take tylenol unless I have a very high fever.

However, my mom is a different story. My ring got stuck on my finger and she told me to call the PHARMACY to see what I should do.

I don't think they had a pill to get the ring off my finger.....I had to get it cut off
