sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years
this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
Prozac has literally stopped me killing myself. I would be dead if it weren’t for antidepressants. If you spread misinformation I’ll come to your house and smack u into orbit.
I’ll join you and steamroll people
As someone who takes the highest dosage of zoloft (setraline) possible for my body in order to function as a “normal” human being, allow me to assure you that if I ever hear you talking shit about needing to take meds, I will pull your head out of your arse and smack it into the nearest wall.
I am ambivalent about meds; they do wonderful things for many people. They also do terrible things to some people (my family included). It is important to note that some people simply respond very very poorly to SSRIs, to all of them, and not let the fact that many people do absolutely need them, and do absolutely live better taking them, detract from the fact that they are not a cure-all.
That said, if you are one of those people for whom medication is the best answer, and someone is giving you shit, let me know who I need to punch in the face.
