Yes, I do.
Like the others said, mine stops on med but I'm currently off and writing a little again.
It has a strange effect though, it doesnt make me better but it feels good to express it and I'm usually proud of what I've written.
There is a Members Gallery section at the top that has lots of poetry written by members here. Maybe some will speak to you, or we would love to see some of your work if you write :)

Check out the book "touched with fire" by Kay Redfield Jamison. It is a scientific approach to linking well known artists and mental illness and suicide. It is fascinating.
