Understanding and Overcoming Depression | Antidepressants Don’t Work
Understanding and overcoming depression requires that you to take action, not just a pill. I have a controversial question for you: do you want a solution or do you want sympathy? Think carefully because only one answer will bring about the results you seek. If you are happy being depressed, then that is your comfort zone of choice. If you have subscribed to my channel and watched some of my videos, you will recall that I advocate personal responsibility. For the most part, antidepressant drugs don’t work. Why is that you ask? Well, I’m glad you are asking these questions. Unless you have a medical condition, you do not need psychotropic medication. Just as we don’t take anti-inflammatories for hair loss, we also shouldn’t take drugs for psychological challenges that we are facing. We need to differentiate between genuine psychiatric afflictions, and psychological challenges. Psychiatric cases are treated with drugs. These are for lack of a better term: Brain doctors. Psychologists treat personality disorders. Sometimes there is an overlap, but that is not nearly as common as people like to think it is. If you are sawing off a limb, you need to treat the cause of the pain, and not the symptom. To stop the pain, you stop the sawing. Taking a painkiller will stop the pain, but not the cause. This is what happens when you choose to take antidepressants instead of facing your challenges. It’s an avoidance of real life. What did people do a hundred years ago? They certainly didn’t put toxic chemicals into their bodies. Why do you? Right there, you are showing a tremendous lack of self-love. Love yourself enough to say no to the drugs that you don’t really need. Lose the crutch and a whole new world opens up. Yes, you will need to do the work. It’s called living. All antidepressants do is dull the senses, and that is not living; that’s existing. We need to stop making pseudo psycho ailments fashionable. We are enabling a comfort zone for people to cosy up to. Oh, I know this will bring out the pro-pharmaceutical squad to tell me I’m an idiot. Do you know what? I’m nearly 50 years old, and on this, I do know what I’m talking about. Whom do you wish to believe? Someone who stands little to gain by telling the truth, or a massive corporation run by the stockholders, all eager for self-enrichment? Again, do you want a way forward, or to wallow in misery? There is no cure-all, but there is a solution. It requires that you take responsibility for your life. Seek out a proactive psychologist who will assist you in facing your challenges head on. Think about a worst-case apocalyptic scenario: what if there were no drugs for you to take? Would you just lie down and wait for wild animals to eat you alive, or would you deal with the situation as it happens? This is how you should tackle each day as it arrives. When you pop a pill saying, “Oh I can’t cope,” you are really saying that you are dependent on it. This implies a victim mentality and a refusal to take charge. As with any crutch, what are you going to do without it? Well, do exactly that and stop taking the drugs that you don’t need. Unfortunately, the mental healthcare system exists to make an insane amount of money. Stop buying into the hype. At best, the average depressed person needs to get a life, a real life, not just a drugged up existence. These drugs are for proper psychiatric medical cases. Over 90% of people on these dangerous drugs don’t even properly qualify. If you are one of the people with a true medical condition, you can take the medication and still be proactive about it. Consider different professional opinions, and pursue new and unique methods for treatment. Look for ways that you can reduce the symptoms of your ailment. Seek out natural ways to address the imbalances in your body so that you are not dependent on the chemicals forever. Medication should be taken for the short term wherever possible. I’m standing here before you telling you all of this not for the controversy, but because it’s true. If I wanted plenty of views, I would make
