I work in a retail business and generally deal with a thousand people a day on a busy day. I understand that people prescribed anti depressants is a percentage in the low double digits. Every day I get a customer that seems completely fucking nuts. People screaming for no apparent reason, weird requests etc etc.



What percentage take anti depressants and what percentage go to a shrink on a regular basis? During living away at college I was very surprised to realize how many people were taking anti depressants and going to shrinks. They seemed to not be able to handle life without either or both.

the problem with anti-depressants is that people look at them as a quick fix

I'm depressed because I have bills to pay....lets go see the shrink and get my happy pills

I'm depressed because I'm a worthless fatass to lazy to get off the couch.....lets go see the shrink and get my happy pills

I'm depressed because I don't know how to deal with life because I was coddled since the 2nd grade.....lets go see the shrink and get my happy pills


In my opinion 90% of people on SSRI's don't need them.

You're able to tell if someone is 'crazy' in 30 seconds.  You should be a psychiatrist.

I read somewhere that 1 out of 4 people are crazy.  If you're wondering who, well think about 3 other people you know.  

If they all seem normal, then I guess that narrows it down.

As someone who has taken SSRI's because of depression, they are NOT a quick fix, they take months to start working.

Based on the reslts of the election this past november, I would estimate that slightly over half of the population is certifiably bat shit crazy.

They're probably perfectly sane, but at the end of their rope with how dishonest and rude retail shops today.  Even I almost raised my voice with a girl at Cabela's last week when they ripped me off.  A small gun safe I bought was missing the instructions and all of the small parts, and they wouldn't do an exchange.  I'm letting my credit card company handle them now.  Shopping these days is a very frustrating experience.  It's not like it used to be when the stores were ethical and the employees tried to be helpful.z

Reckless eyeballing of me in the parking lot. Car full of crap. Always challenging my employees on every point. Complaints to everyone who will listen.

Another angry at me for no logical reason, then tries to shoot his automobile mechanic with a rifle.

I would say about 3% of the population is psychotic. Another 20% are just self-deluding dimwits.
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 6:20:33 PM EDT
I'd say 94%, easily.
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 6:23:08 PM EDT
Uh, everyone.

We are all fucked up in our own "unique" way...

It's just how dysfunctional you are in relation to society.  Unfortuantely a lot of people have foudn that they are rewarded when they act bat shit crazy, thus they continue to go to more extremes to get what they want.  Think liberal/obama bot types –– there ya go, now you understand what i'm saying.

Count me in on the percentage please !!!  I like to fit in...

Just barely enough to have elected Obammy & Biden.  Roughly 53%.

AVE! I might be a perfectly normal, coherent person most of the time, but for some reason I can't explain, I think a lot in Latin as well as in English, even though I just started learning the lingua latina recently...I can only guess that I know enough words to dream and think in Latin. It's a feeling I can't explain because never in my life have I been billingual. I detest the lingua Hispania ( although it is a daughter of Latin), and I have never had luck learning enough of French, German, or Italian to even write my own sentences and translate.

Other than that I believe that I am a perfectly stable homo sapiens

VALE!

P.S. I downloaded the squealer font and imported it into Word so I might not be totally sane...non dementia...
EDIT, correct spacing issue.

I work closely with mental health service providers, and have been through training classes which state that at any given time roughly 40% of the population is diagnosable using the guidelines of  the DSM IV.

What you are describing has nothing to do with mental instability rates. People will simply vent on a convenient target such as you, the retail employee. That same customer probably acts completely controlled in other contexts. We have no idea what's really going on with people.

I would further argue that pretty much everyone presents with enough symptomotology to be damn near diagnosible with something.  

As for myself, I'm a lesbian trapped in a mans body –– shucks!!!

I'll bet it's higher than you think. Every healthcare provider (MD, PhD, NP) I know says more of their patients are on meds than are not. I have no reason to doubt them.

I recently took a psychological test to help out a friend for here psych class. The results said I "suffered" from quite a fe different illnesses. It is a good think I don't put much stock in psychology or tests given by women
Link Posted: 5/1/2009 7:06:13 PM EDT
Well, if you figure that approximately 50% of people are women, I'd say about 51%
