i spent the last 22 years believing that I had a mental illness. The moment my adult psychiatrist started taking me off my meds, the more normal my behavior became. How come there are no safe guards in forced to prevent lazy doctors from prescribing these mild altering drugs?
Hi, Chat! There ARE safeguards in place, but who's to enforce them unless there's a complaint? There are a few bad doctors, a few bad plumbers, lawyers, politicians, ministers, lorry drivers...
Humans are humans and will act like humans and this is the world we live in.
I'm sorry for any suffering this may have caused you.
Best wishes, WCV
