first of all, you should never be made to feel ashamed because you have issues (we ALL have issues). and some people seem to benefit from taking a supplement or presc<x>ription; if that's the case, it's not for me to judge. But I don't think your concerns are irrelevant or should be swept under the rug. If you're feeling something, then you're feeling something legit. sometimes you can't just snap out of something; you need some kind of help or support. I can only tell you that sometimes the people who should be backing you up and helping you (instead of just criticizing) can't always do that, because of their own issues.
I'm sorry to hear this. That's very wrong. Most likely you are having a normal reaction to an efffed up enviornment.
Some people think it helps... obviously it doesn't.
Time to cut the apron strings and do what you feel you need to do to get healthy.
