> You have a valid point with the diabetes thing but allow me to take it and run with it. What if I was constantly on MDMA (ecstacy), and when on X everything was wonderful and I shared empathy with my fellow man and felt a deep bond to all those around me on a human level. To most people that would be 'wrong' and 'false' as a daily way of life becuse how you feel in that state isn't the real you. That's how I feel about prozac and other mood enhancers. While on them, you aren't dealing with the real you but an altered version of you. In both cases, as soon as the drug wears off you're back to square one.
>>> No that is incorrect. I was put on Prozac for a time period (I think 9 months) to fix my biochemical imbalance. It brought me to a non-depressed state, then I stopped (on doctor's advice), and I stayed the same (at the "even" state it had brought me to). That's the kind of medical treatment that is ideal.
