"Sick Beast" has his mind blown

In Response To: Re: "Sick Beast" blows my mind (David)

Well, I have to say that never had I ever thought that I looked at all like the Doctor, though given what's been said about him, I imagine I should be flattered. I'd always pictured him as rotund, bespectacled, and balding, sort of cartoon-like. Ah, well;) Maybe there's yet something to my thoughts of pursuing a psychological career...

As for the prescription debate, I've strong feelings about it. However, I come from the side which sees that while medication may be overprescribed to some, there are many, many others who are either too proud or too fearful of losing what they define as essential elements of themselves to a drug to go onto medicine, even when they need it. In that sense, I speak from personal experience when I say that in a great deal of cases, medication CAN be a great benefit to those who suffer from a neurochemical imbalance. However, as I'd tried stating in one of Sam's sessions, medication by itself is worthless. It can even be worse than no medication if care is not taken by the therapist to replace self-destructive, inaccurate ways of perceiving the world with constructive, more objective paradigms. In all cases, medication alone does not therapy make, and THAT is what many doctors seem to forget.

Oh, and David, I don't live anywhere near you...yet;)
