Ok I addressed a couple of subjects that are close to my heart, my diabetes and a really rough part of my life that I will deal with from now on, Depression is the first thing a lot of people think when I start talking about stuff like this but is getting myself diagnosed and on some good drugs the thing to do or is talking about it the safe and natural way to deal?
This brings me to a commercial that really bothers me, I know you have seen it “Depression is a serious condition that takes so much out of you” then we wind up a little doll and continue with “I have to wind myself up just to get out of bed” then we list the symptoms “I have to keep winding myself up to deal with the sadness, loss of interest, lack of energy--------and so on, and we just keep winding that doll up after it so sadly leans forward. Ok I wont repeat the whole commercial but I am really tired of the drug companies making us feel like they have come up with the answer to all of our problems, how many people actually get themselves depressed watching that poor little doll wind its self down while the teary eyed actress goes over how depressed she actually is. The real depression will set in when you ask your Doctor for some of these meds and see how expensive they are or that you don’t actually need them.
Just remember to tell your doctor if your depression worsens ------ here we go with the list of side effects, now why would I want to take something that just may make me want to kill myself, suicide is a serious answer to a problem and if this is a possible side effect then why are they prescribing it?
In my opinion if you are actually depressed you will not be listing your symptoms like that, most will be keeping to themselves and if a drug is so good that I will sit back and smile while watching a creepy little wind up doll walk across a picnic table then I think the dose just may be too high.
