Medication is sometimes necessary, but the way it is used these days is very wrong. Medications such as antidepressants are often prescribed without any effort put into diagnosing. Very often there is something going on, sometimes medical, and sometimes situational. Prescribing antidepressants for that is kind of like prescribing aspirin for someone who's being punched in the face on a regular basis.

A fuckin primary care physician can just pass out antidepressants, it's crazy.

I am so over modern mental health "best practices" bc they were all designed to help straight white dudes. The therapies, the medicines. Women are and always have been an afterthought and the DSM is a racist, classist, misogynistic piece of shit
