Hi, I made the colossal mistake of going to a psychiatrist today and letting my mother get involved. He prescribed drugs and I never touch those things. Now I'm having a tug-of-war with my mom about it, which is just what I needed. My question is, has anyone ever really taken these drugs only, as my psychiatrist indicated, as a transitional thing? Has anyone ever come off the drugs successfully and found they were emotionally well? Or know anyone who has? I have this awful feeling in my gut that the drugs are just a facade to cover up the source of all the pain and never be able to suss it out, and that the reality is not what the shrink told me. I don't trust or believe him. I don't know any person who has ever come off of the drugs and been well. Please...anyone?
