Not currently, but given my family history and my new health insurance, that may change in the next year or two as I'm able to more closely monitor my health.

My anti-depressant changed my life. I don't mind paying out-of-pocket to see my doctor, because my quality of life and my dedication to my job have increased. Plus, I don't have panic attacks anymore! Really embarassing.

I wish I had insurance so that I could see a therapist. Oh, well, drugs are cheaper than help.

I hope you get insurance soon. I take buspar for anxiety and I know people think it's ineffective but I love it. Not nearly as sedating as a benzo and when I do have panic anxiety I push through it or take a couple benadryls.

I have been on some for various reasons, but I currently am not. (Except for the generic Zyrtec I use when I am going to be around cats or dogs or horses or horny trees.)

Yep, for asthma. Because breathing is pretty nice, as it turns out.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

This says a lot about our society.

Buspar was good for me when I needed it.

And yes I'm on a medication currently.

If they even flower. I think most of the problem trees just poop out pollen to mess us up.

Ah! You are the first person I have "met" who is also taking it! It has worked miracles for me.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.
