    My boyfriend and I, when we first moved in, got into huge fights. At first they were just huge emotional blow-ups, but as time went on they became physical fights. After one such fight the police had to be called and we were transported to a emergency room and I was put on...

    Guess You Can Call Them That

    I am bipolar, so I have had to take my share of several different happy pills, thankfully for the past 4 years or so I've been on the same meds & am doing well on them. Still battle depression but thats just part of the illness.

    How "happy" Can You Get?

    Personally, I don't see why they call them happy pills. They should call them "make you suffer so much you'll be convinced things weren't so bad in the first place" pills. I seem to be prone to side effects no matter what the pill no matter what the dose. For over a year I've...

    Public Service Announcement:

    IF you are on the correct pills to treat YOUR specific chemical imbalance... The medication ONLY establishes the chemical preconditions for happiness to chemically occur in your brain. ...It is still TOTALLY up to you to do what you need to do to be happy. ...Thank you.
