I used to think (until very recently) that they caught my illness early.
After all, I had a psychiatrist once tell me they did.
But, what constitutes early?
My first break was in the Summer of 1998 and I began taking regular meds in the Fall of 2001.
To me, that is not early.
Maybe earlier than some, but certainly later than others.
In any event, I feel I went through a lot of needless suffering in that three year period.
And, a lot of it was my fault.
I was just so arrogant in those days, that I was difficult to reason with.
So, while that’s all in the past now, I no longer feel like I am doing as good as some others.
Maybe I am, but I am also learning to question a lot of what psychiatry tells me.
What about you? Are you the questioning type? What sorts of things do you need to inquire about, before you are satisfied with what you’ve been told?
