The reason I wasn't talking is because I was being tranquilized or chemically shocked basically and was forgetting the details of what had happened to me, and I also felt apathetic so it actually made me want to talk about it less. Now I've realized these drugs have given me such traumatic memories, because the emotional trauma is in my subconscious but its been wiped out so I can't get it out and deal with it. It F*cked me up, needlessly. Don't ever ever take antidepressents, they're very dangerous, unless you want to wipe out your memory and avoid the problem you're having. They probably permanently altered my sex drive and memory a little bit, and I took the most ridiculously small dose for a very short period of time. They did permanent but mild damage to an otherwise healthy and intelligent girl. If I had had bad parents, I would have been really f*cked up though.
    You seem really smart so these horrible drugs probably didn't do much long-term damage. I guess you mean it f*d you up temporarily. I used to worry about having long-term damage from my unnecessary ~6 to 8 month use of benzodiazepines (tranquilizers) for normal life-related anxiety Once I got off, I had the hardest time talking to my friends on the phone, I was not able to follow the conversation. I kept having these weird, negative, rage-filled day-dreams. I thought I was brain damaged, and maybe was a little, but it all passed. I was f*d up temporarily and now I'm back to my regular self. Anti-depressants are in some ways even worse than anxiolitics (benzodiazepines, and other similar drugs), but the turkey form anxiolytics is even worse than that of heroine Yes, it's worse than heroine! Translation, these drugs need to be BANNED.

    It was 5 years ago, so I think there is a tiny amount of permanent damage. I remember I had a much higher sex drive and could get turned on much more easily and its gotten better but it will probably never be the same. The only thing they've done to my mind is damage my memory a little bit, and my ability to remember new information but other than that I don't know. The moment I went off the zoloft I stopped having the suicidal, agressive thoughts. I probably have even more brain damage that I'm not aware of though. I've felt more and more like my regular self as time has gone on, but this is my life, I shouldn't have to wait years not feeling like myself because some doctor is concerned because I won't talk to him.

    In the old days, I probably would have been deemed hypersexual and had my female parts cut off. This state is very agressive about treating crazy people, even though I was not one of them. The intersting thing is, he was HAPPY when I became more disinterested in men. This really is reflective of what those psychiatrists believe. They really believe female sexuality is an illness.

    It's a Brave New World

    Very interesting thread. I completely agree that many of these drugs are being mass-marketed by psychiatrists for profit, and this is especially insidious when they are pushing parents to force their children to get on these drugs. When I was young I was diagnosed with ADD and a psychiatrist wanted to prescribe me ritalin. Thank the Gods my parents were unwilling to cooperate because I have met so many others over the course of my life who have struggled with drug addiction problems that all seemed to begin with their use of ritalin at a young age.

    The situation has gotten even worse now with "doctors" prescribing anti-depressants to pre-pubescent children. I am reminded of Huxley's Brave New World and the use of "soma". It's like they are trying to create a generation of people who just pop a government-sanctioned "happy-pill" whenever they start to feel anxiety about how dystopian the world has become.

    I can't find it on YouTube, but there was a video I watched a few years back about two brothers, both practically toddlers, who were taking 5 to 8 different psychiatric medications. It starts with one medication, and then they get prescribed another to treat the side effects of the first one, and then they get prescribed another to treat the side effects of the first and second, etc, etc. It goes on, until the kids are beyond repair.

    And a lot of their theories have no basis in reality whatsoever, like someone who has a high sex drive and a love for life is manic and that if you go through a period where you sleep for a long time you're "depressive" when there could be a physical thing going on that's making you tired that they're not testing for. They are just "symptoms" of similar behavior patterns in people, you really cannot know what is going on in someone's head.

    I know, and a lot of these children end up dying from intoxication. Its a very disturbing trend and an issue that everyone needs to be aware of.

    Who says that having a euphoric mood and high sex drive is detrimental to someone? That's what I want to know. That makes someone determined to be successful and not every person with a high sex drive is premiscuous at all, just very passionate.

    Sounds like envy . They are boring old farts, stuck in a pseudo-medical field, they don't like people who have more latent potential than themselves.

    Of course they have plenty of $$, so maybe my theory doesn't hold, but it's still better than the chemical imbalance theory imho.

    It makes me so mad when I think about it. Last fall when I spent a weekend with my bf, I couldn't orgasm for a long time . I should have told him what had been done to me, but I was ashamed.

    Yeah, most people aren't ready to take in that kind of information, they simply don't know how to interpret it. He would have probably thought you were a conspiracy nut or something, but the information needs to be known. Sometimes I risk looking like a crazie when I tell people about the dangers of lawn-care-chemicals.

    Last week I was talking to a dog owner, telling him about my dog who developed diabetes, blindness, colitis, and died, probably due to eating or walking on sprayed grass. The guys jaw dropped with skepticism, and he tried to quickly change the subject (probably uses the chemicals himself), but hopefully a seed was planted in the back of his mind.

    I don't understand why people are like this, why can't they just accept the truth? I've always been extremely accepting of the truth (thats what my psychiatrist told me about myself), but I believe there's some grey in most things in life too. I guess some people are afraid of the truth because they don't want to react to it.

    I do think people with schizophrenia (verified in a brain scan), autism, and severe PTSD or post partum should be drugged though, because those are the people who could very well kill/hurt someone or do have a brain defect and can't solve their own problems.
