i dont want to discount anyones situation or make it trivial.
but i think we should take some power back from psychiatrist and doctors and not believe everything were told ,believing them has us having to deal with the fall out of these drugs.
the DSM has a lot to answer for here ,the go to book for psychiatrist and before we know it we have the diagnosis from a questioner, and then a label. we are human beings not our labels in my opinion .
absolutely no one is perfect and life can b tough at times, I am working on stopping my perfectionist ways because I realise were it comes from and its working .
I believe the negative self talk we have starts form very young ,parents ,teachers ,people in authority talking us down for what ever reason and we soak it up like a sponge.
I believe we need to stop letting people label us and believe our hearts .
I'm very interested in ancestry, the way each generation talks to the next and its past on down like that .my situation mirrors my fathers growing up. I stand corrected but I don't see a definitive test out there to tell us what we have is %100 true .
I believe psychiatry has a purpose ,I've benefitted from it ,but there's many critics of it out there and its labels. PETER BREGGIN its most famous .
I mean no offence to anyone's situation.
