    Default Do you take antidepressants/anxiety medication? (anonymous poll)

    I think it's good to have a visual to make it more real and less of a stigma.

    For the purpose of the poll, "yes" would have been okay, but it is fine either way.

    Yeah I take psych meds but not for depression or anxiety.

    But Ill put a yes

    But tbh it doesnt really matter either way imo. Some people take them, some dont- its up to the individual and theres nothing wrong with either case imo.

    To survive in a conformist society hostile to individuation it is necessary to be depressed. So most of us regularly take s powerful depressant called alcohol.

    Yes, individuation brings exuberance. And exuberance is s direct threat to the necessary depression of the conformist.

    Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat and heart racing like Usain Bolt during the final stretch of the hundred meter dash, thinking about me stupidly making a post somewhere about an ailment I've been afflicted with and someone from one of the various internet social outlets using this knowledge to triangulate my location and *gulp* steal my over-the-counter medicines.

    Over the years I've tried lots of different forms of treatment to try to overcome this anxiety that is starting to impact my life both personally and professionally, included but not limited to: intense psychotherapy, pills, holistic medicine, and....* attention drifts as intense repressed traumatic memories begin to over overwhelm me * shock therapy.

    I've been studied by some of the greatest minds in medicine, yet no one can seem to provide any real explanation or any long-term relief for this -- I've been told that they want to try new experimental procedure called a "frontal lobe lobotomy" on me, so I remain cautiously optimistic that after a permanent stayfew weeks in a mental hospital state of the art rehabilitation center, I can go back to putting the fragments of my life back together.

    I'm not sure if you're joking or serious.

    I use this platform to open up and allow myself to be vulnerable here and you question my authenticity?

    You've highly offended me and I bid you good day, sir. Good day.
