I didn't get it at first either, until I just read what you said about them reading our site, but dont they have to
be a member here to read what is here? Oh that was stupid, anyone can join, and just read away!
I am now using Prozac, yes by them, but only to help with the witdrawls of this noxious drug Cymbalta, and when
I get off of it 100% will then go off the Prozac.
Funny thing the Prozac is helping with the withdrawls, glad I read about it here.

Being that you are in Australia you may not have heard about the layoffs hitting Lilly. On Sept. 14th, they announced they were cutting 5500 jobs. If you are interested in reading about it go to www.indystar.com and click on Business then healthcare&Pharma. That will take you to some interresting articles about Lilly and their future. B

Thank you Maureen & Cecile for your support. I just don't think Junior understood where I was coming from. I totally understand what this website/message board is all about and the support it offers. I just didn't like the fact that Lilly Reps were using this site for their own "enjoyment". Update on myself, Day 7 off cymbalta. Still in complete hell. P.S. How ironic that I live here in Indy...home of Lilly!
I didn't understand either and just ignored the first one until you re-posted - and thanks for the info about the site - will have a look.
I actually don't like to hear of anyone losing their job, despite what I said.
I'm quite sure a group mentality syndrome works amongst people such as sales reps, as there is in football clubs etc. Thus appalling behaviour and comments which would not be tolerated elsewhere are tolerated withing 'the group' to the point where those people think they're the ones in the right, because all they're getting from all around them is affirmation that their behaviour is acceptable.

I hate the thought of 5500 workers losing their jobs also. There will be a large number from here in Indy I am sure. The impact on the central Indiana economy could be huge, and not in a good way. I lost my job here a few years ago when another large Indy employer was sold then eventually went out of business. I don't wish it on anyone. I guess my point was that maybe some of Lilly's past business practices are catching up with them. Trying to hurry up testing, approvals, etc...

Here in Australia you don't need a label in order to get access to treatment, although it can certainly help. I learned when my son was diagnosed with autism (back in 1994) that having a label made a big difference. It DID give us more access to services. More recently the mental health field (in terms of community agencies) is beginning to receive funding from the federal govt. There are now programs called "PHaMs" (personal helpers and mentors schemes) where the person with mental illness is put on a 'recovery plan' and, if suitable, matched with a volunteer mentor. They do not have to have a diagnosis in order to access the program.
I don't think any system is perfect and unfortunately, the construction of the DSM is influenced by socio-political factors in the same way as anything else. But, it's all we have to work with. I know the UK uses the ICD-10 and I imagine they have the same problem.

All I can say about labeling is that when this is done, the person becomes their dx.
I started practicing back in 1990, and my supervisor firmly didn't believe in labels.
There are times that it must be done, but it was just being done so much with
all these behaviors, Obessive Compulsive, ADD,ADHD, and then these people
went running around calling themselves that, instead of their own names!
I have found with therapy, well with someone who knows what they are doing
can help these people, and they can just be who they are, without a labvel,and
heal what ever issues they have. I did.
How I got on antidepressants is a different story entirely!!!

Welcome. Welll to a great place to get support, and understanding.
I never would have found your post had it not been in my e-mails.
If you look on the main page there are topics, and there you can
pick an area to post. It gives the subjects, there are lots of great
Your not alone, and told my story in so many ways. I am a recovering drunk too! So grateful i didn't have to relapse
even though this drug ruined my life like i had been, just from all the side effects.
What i have come to find out it makes no difference how long you have been on this drug, also to just stop it cold
turkey your really going to have awful withdrawls.
It's only beeen what 3 weeks since you have had the drug, and even when we do the slow taper we have learned here
some of us still have a very hard time. I even had to go on Prozac because I was really losing it. Only to discover
i was decreasing way to fast. All due to my memory being so bad as a result of this crap.
Here is the site with all the withdrawl symptoms, at least that way you can always know it's not you, or that your going
insane, or have some other awful medical condition. That does not mean that one shouldn't have certain things checked.
Please know we are all here for you, your not alone. Ask all the questions that you can think of!!!

Glad you found us. There are lots of supportive people on this board.. so.. welcome :)
I know what you mean about the lack of sleep. I've been battling that for months. It's all about our brain chemicals being out of kilter. If you read my thread entitled, "Crap" (!!) you will know what I mean.
