Why do you always complain on your blog? Don't you have anything going on in your life where you don't complain. Your blog is boring and depressing. You used write something exciting on your blog. Be thankful for what you have in your life and not what you don't have

I used to write something exciting on my blog? You must have taken the wrong turn at the "Happy, Sparkly, Exciting Blog" and didn't realize you ended up at my miscarriage and struggling mommy blog. I seriously doubt anyone would ever call my blog posts exciting. Whiny, complainy, snarky, and bitchy, yes. But exciting? You must have me confused with Madonna.

Don't you hate it when anonymous people complain about what you write on YOUR OWN blog? If you don't like it, don't read.

I love that your so honest with your struggles, it helps us who struggle with depression, motherhood, life in general know that we are not alone. Thanks.

I have heard a lot about a particular antidepressant and the increased risk of suicide amongst teens, but haven't found anything about adults. Can you point me in the right direction to learn more? Your comment is quite alarming. Not all meds have the same effect and it would be useful to know if there is a new trend, or something happening with one or two types.

I agree that it is important to be honest about your struggles, but you seem to make some assumptions about these meds to the point that I worry people will ignore the tremendous boidy of evidence that shows how many poeple have been helped with conventional thereapies. Also quite a number of people don't have alternative practitioners (who are also prescribing and using medicines, some of which are not regulated or proven).

Your own sensitivities notwithstanding, and they seem considerable and worthy of further exploration (because you know, not all outcomes are reported in the literature...) it would be helpful to learn more about these factors and what to watch out for.

Dear anonymous. Any individual that uses one woman's experiences or lack of, translated on a blog, to make medical and treatment choices needs to be put on a lot more than an antidepressant. Perhaps the intent of this blog is a combination vent versus exchange of information. An opening to a dialogue regarding many issues we face daily but are too self conscience to voice. Seeking medical treatment whether it be conventional or not is a very important, personal choice coupled with the recommended treatments. It truly is not until each individual person sits face to face with their doctor and asks for themselves about treatment and medicine affects/interactions that they will be able to make a decision that is right for them. I believe at many posts along them way with her miscarriages Aliza stated in her postings that her information should not be a substitute for seeking your own medical direction and advice. If anything I have gleened from her postings that you need to be diligent in dealing with your health. Perhaps you would be better suited to the postings on WebMD. I'm signing off now to take a Maxalt for my migraine and a Wellubutrin for motherhood.
