Do you mean like it can contain experiencing delusions as well? What are those symptoms I listed then? Suicidal thoughts? Slow thinking and movements? Lack of energy? Loss of motivation and interest? Doesn't mean nothing to you? Of course, you don't know the answer yourself, do you?
and btw I'm the most ANTI pdocs and ANTI psychiatric drugs you can ever find. and just so you know I've been fucked by antidepressants, SSRIs to be exact. They made everything worse in the long run. They GAVE me dp/dr and I'm not even able to stop taking them. this is why I continue to go to the damn pdocs.
Also, I do my research not blindly trust pdocs. so when they first shared their claim, it's not like I instantly nodded my head in agreement. So, STOP treating me like one of those blind advocates and assuming things about me that are not true.
My apologies for offending you. For the record, I wasn’t trying to “get you” or make you feel small. I’m only trying to get people to think about what they mean when they use words like “depression” and “DP”. Our experiences can be complicated, and it’s not simple as just getting a “mental illness” diagnosis and treating it.
I’m sorry about your experience with antidepressants. Many feel the way you do (for the record, I’m not anti-ADs either, just ant-psychiatric propaganda about what they are and what they do).
I probably could have just gotten to my point quicker. I tend to use Socratic techniques when conversing with people and sometimes it pisses people off. My point, or argument, is simply the term “mental illness” and all of its individual components are just classifications of human problems, which on its own is not a bad thing of course. But i had a doctor tell me once they me shitting blood was a symptom of my depression, so it makes me wonder how, for example, psychiatrists know that “fatigue” is a symptom of depression (I.e, caused by the depression) and not that both are the consequence of some yet-to-be-identified condition.
I’m open to continue this conversation elsewhere if you’re interested, but I don’t want to continue turning this thread into something that it wasn’t originally.
