They really do, when ever they get someone that does not seem happy or does not smile enough they assume depression. One of my friends goes to this crappy doctor and the doctor told her a lie to get her to take Effexor, then never told her any of the side effects. Now she is withdrawling from it and the doctor is trying to get her to keep taking it. Stupid HMO doctors. Why does everyone have to smile and be happy? Back in my freshmen year people never saw me smile and I was not depressed. Niether is my friend. Some people just are not cheerful. Also another question.. Someone who has a hard life are they going to be happy? No.. I know when I was having a hard time my freshmen year. I would come home and sleep, but as soon as my life got better. Things got better. Why dont doctors try a bit more on helping someone improve there life before they feed them pills?
