Better(?) Living Through Chemistry

According to the Food and Drug Administration, taking antidepressants
increases one’s risk of committing suicide.

Ummm . . .

(*raises finger, thinks better of it, lowers finger*)

Just let the implications and scenarios play out in your head for a little
while. Trust me, they don’t get any less absurd the more you think
about them.

Having lost my brother Michael to depression-related suicide, I’m a little sensitive about psychiatry. Though I’m not prepared to go all Thomas Szasz on it quite yet, I’ve seen enough to know that it’s hard enough managing the chemicals we’re born with without dumping all kinds of poorly-understood, manufactured-for-profit ones in there and stirring vigorously while hoping for the best.
