Why do I feel like this drug is going to ruin my life? I could get TD or NMS from it and just because I am not acceptable to my community. So, I should take an untested drug for my mother, for my friends? They tell me that it will improve the situation. I know that it won't and I may never be the same...these drugs can change you forever. I feel like I have no choice. And my psychiatrist is pregnant. She may not ever recover. Or the damages will be sustained for at least a generation. All because of one remark. I tried to warn her, but Saphris is apparently the best solution. I'm sorry...I am just a crazy Schizophrenic. What can I say that doesn't sound insane?
