I got this email a few minutes ago...wow...Betty Dodson: 1 Big Pharma 0:
A few months ago, I finally decided to take care of my mental health and start seeing a psychologist.
I went to a free screening at my university, where one of the university's therapists screens you and recommends community professionals that specialize in your needs. My screening also ended with a push for psychiatric medication. I went to a doctor to discuss it, and she pushed Celexa, and kept pushing, claiming the sexual side effects would likely not occur in a twenty year old female.
I bought it, took it home, and after some internal debate, flushed the pills. I had recently entered into my first relationship, with a partner who cares about my sexual pleasure. I had felt pushed into the medication. They hadn't even waited for me to start seeing the psychologist they recommended (who I am seeing, by the way, and who was horrified by their not only hasty, but pushy manner regarding psychiatric medication).
Most importantly, though, I had been following your site for about a year. I had seen what that kind of medication had done to other people, and your advice to them. I don't see how taking medication that would be sexually frustrating could have aided my happiness. I am a hell of a lot happier than I was in January; people say to never take advice from the internet, but I'm glad I followed yours.
