      You would like me to give you citations for people they've helped?
      Sarah, Jerry, Dan, Carrie, Barbara, Linda, these are just a few that I know that have used them short-term, the way they were meant to be taken, successfully.
      How much more disengenuous are you going to be?
      Oh, btw, mental illness doesen't mean they are automatically depressed.
      Good grief.

      Here are four well-known people that have been helped:
      Aretha Franklin. Willard Scott, Donny Osmond, and Kim Basinger for starters.

      I realize you are anti-medicine of any sort, but people seeking help for their different mental health issues deserve information from all sides to make the wise, informed decision concerning themselves...scare tactics are unnecessary, and can cause someone harm when they may have been otherwise been helped.
      Both sides deserve to be heard.

    I see posts trying to frustrate what @banasy is trying to say and I agree with@dazzle that @banasy has done her home work. Carry on @banasy.
    I must say though that this digresses from the real issue. What can be done to forestall such terrorism and easy access to weapons.
    Good night all

    I know youve heard the term *suicide by cop* @ banasy, correct? I think a certain individual wants to be the lst in history to be *suicide by blogger!* That same individual, given a small amount of time could most likely drive the pope to drinking! 😉
