Behold…… it is barren…
Thee fucks - thou art none
sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years
this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
In all complete fairness, I do agree with the majority of this, however, even though I suffer from depression, I’d never take antidepressants.
As an artist, there have been documented studies (and my best friend has actually experienced this, on an art course), where being on antidepressants has completely stifled creativity, and in a lot of cases, it never came back, even after the meds were stopped.
Too much of a risk, and a lot of the side effects are crippling for certain people (yeah, prescribe a drug known for weight gain to an ED patient, see how far that’s gonna get you).
