    Back in the Olden Days, they used SSRIs!

    I have little doubt the above will one day be taught to medical students, much like we marvel nowdays at the routine use of lobotomy. Few people know these meds carry a significant risk of Increased Mental Illness including Suicidality. SSRIs might be the Best Treatment Weve Got Currently, but...

    Trying to help a loved one but they wont accept it

    My girlfriend wont stop having bouts of crying and what seems like spells of depression. She seems chirpy and happy most the time but will unexplainably break out in tears when we're alone and wont say why. This is happening more often recently maybe once or twice every two weeks. She doesn't...

    I don’t want an A for anorexia

    “You haven’t scooped all the butter out. Finish it all.” The nurse’s stare invaded from across the table, and her words continued the assault. She had finished supervising my breakfast, but was hell-bent on discovering any trace of leftovers, any hint of my illness now showing its mark in the...
