Has anyone stopped to ask, WHY?

why is there more than 1 drug to treat bipolar disorder?

perhaps it is because the drug companies are businesses ........... they do not only have your best interest at heart - they have shareholders. These people expect results - results amount from the number of sales made - they all deploy different strategies - different approaches.

we are all part of a genome experiment - some way or the other -- be we controlled by the media (internet, tv, papers, etc.) or drug companies for example.

just a thought from my side - will really enjoy your feedback!

The psychiatrist relays whatever information is fed to him by pharmaceudical companies back to me, and thats how he runs his sessions. Its always the same ducking story with him, "take the drugs, it will help you". 5 years later im worse off than i was before, unable to function at work, constantly being bombarded by negative emotions, paranoia, physical symptoms of pain and frustration which cascade through my body, etc.I am in dire need of rest and regrouping in order to face another day. My thought process isnt there 100%, more like 60% and Im feeling it when I talk to my peers and manager.I need to get out of here!
