    I'm sure your degree in neuroscience will verify this.

    Wait...
    It's called common sense. Your body is naturally made with a certain balance of chemicals (common sense). You think medicating yourself--and thus in a way injecting yourself with outside chemicals--for psychological problems helps?

    Honestly, you don't need a neuroscience degree to have common sense.

    as you increase your understanding of something, you can increase your control of it.
    I believe one of the best uses of drugs for a psychological problem would be the treatment of schizophrenia using medication.
    What you are suggesting is that the balance of these chemicals in every person is at the perfect level to keep them perfectly healthy, whereas the truth is this purely isn't the case - an example of this is thyroid defficiencies, or even moreso gout.
    how can you argue that the normal state for someones joints is to be seized with crystallisation of bodily minerals.

    Your knowledge of neuropharmacology astounds me.

    if your body happens to have an inbalance of those "chemicals" then i think compensating for these & trying to correct them with 'outside' but precursor or synthetic versions, or mere enzyme inhibitors might indeed help symptoms = common sense.


    the real issue is one of underlying relationship of cause and effect. not whether drugs can have an objective positive effect in these situations.

    It's amazing how you guys come onto this thread not to debate the pathetic nature of it, but simply to spout totally unrelated & unwarranted criticisms.

    I just pointed it out as yesterday you were female.

    Anyway, can I check something? Officially I'm dyslexic. Does that mean I'm actually stupid, and should stop complaining?

    And honestly, do you think "warnings" are really that scary? People can just create another name and thus post on this site anyway. Honestly..what's the point of having warnings that "ban" people. After school starts people won't even go onto this site, let alone care.

    I can take it. I just didn't really think you answered the question: you stated things about my apparent reading comprehension skills based on what you've seen here, dodging the question with attempted witticisms.

    Yes or no: is dyslexia basically a justification for stupidity?
