Wow. Let's not get too worked up about this. So what if there's a plan to depopulate the masses through SSRIs, what does that got to do with your recovery? Is this discovery an excuse to throw in the towel? Human beings are capable of extraordinary feats. Check out the movie Lorenzo's Oil see the power of faith and what ordinary people can do in the mist of the impossible. They are people who recover from this and some have been on this very site. The human mind is still a medical mystery capable of amazing things. Health is our birthright. I browsed the propeciahelp forums and their recovery stories are nothing short of amazing. Even though the medicine is different, the symptoms are practically identical. I believe we can achieve the same results. I've been in the pit of despair, some of us know this place well. It's up to us to climb our way out. Rather then self terminate(easy way out), fight for the only life you have. It's unfortunate that many have to experience this. We need to all come together and figure this out. Be the best person you can be health wise, mentally, physically, spiritually. Do everything you can possibly can before you throw in the towel and that better be when you have honestly tried everything. Even then locate someone who is trying like (Ghost and others) We must fight for a good life, that's our honor. So we can claim this victory and say we survived. I feel no matter what, we must heal. Don't let anyone take your life without a fight! It's the only one you have.
I'm going to respond to this comment. What's there not to get worked up about? We were seriously injured and we're here sharing our knowledge with one another. Yes I know, humans are incredible - but let's not smoke too much hopium here - humans are NOT that incredible, after all we've basically destroyed most of the global ecosystems and scientists are confident that humans kill more species each year than at any other point since the Jurassic Extinction event 60 million years ago. Socially, we've also created one of the most unstable and unsustainable societies every conceived, and we routinely poison our population with psychiatric drugs that do more harm than good. In the past, humans did horrendous things to each-other, and we still do to this day (have you seen the news about Syria?).
I agree with Alto - it's important to focus on the positive to aid recovery, but let's not be unrealistic about the terrible things that humans have done to eachother and to the planet we live on - we need to understand our true nature in order to accurately protect ourselves FROM our sometimes injurious and menacing mainstream society. Psychiatry is a weapon used by sick sociopaths and psycopaths to injure innocent people, to keep our population incapable of fighting back, and to control those among us who dislike mainstream society and have unique personalities that are not consistent with it's rules. I would STROGLY recommend reading Whitaker's book Mad In America to get a better idea of just how sick and twisted psychiatry as a philosophy really can be - at almost NO POINT in their entire history have psychiatrists ever helped society, but have consistently injured and maimed their patients because they were so frustrated and incapable of doing anything to help.
The pain that we have experienced is very real, and PSSD is one of the most miserable conditions along with anhedonia that many experience. When people come to together and share their experiences, there is hope just in the community spirit of the endevor and to know that we're not alone. Knowing that we're not alone is incredibly important, and for this reason SA as a website is so incredibly important. Yes there are other websites like the PSSD forum - but the more places to bounce around ideas and share experiences the more powerful this movement can become in my opinion.
