Some Psychatrists don't know what they are doing.. (this is what I wanted to name the group) 39 People

    The Last Psychiatrist

    Why Won't People Sue Psychiatrists For Detrimental To A Person's Health

    I just want to be 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16,15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 again. I have lost 18 years of my life, that I will never get back. I regret everything. Then making it to 30 is not guaranteed, in today's world. Especially with jobs shrinking, and poor...

    In Agreement

    I agree some psychiatrists don't know what they're doing. Why can't living life be like going to a movie. The movie producers, I'll give them the benefit of the doubt, have tried to make the most entertaining movie possible for an audience with broad tastes. The average movie...

    AAUUGGHH!!

    They say I'm crazy and I say THEY made me that way! I'm not sure what the plan is here but I don't like being a Guinna pig. It seems to me that if they did a little more research on people and their history before prescribing meds that they would have a better shot at giving us...
