I agree that if you can avoid anti-depressants it's better all the way around. I think they make you crazy. Now, back off, all those people who will say they have helped, because, I agree, they're right for some poeple, but not for me and not for most people in agony. We need help with the pain not mind altering drugs. That's my opinion, bluntly. Love and hugs and kisses, to you Missy, from Sally wrote:
