Some Psychatrists don't know what they are doing.. (this is what I wanted to name the group) 38 People

    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...
