Im just saying he doesnt have to worry about money, or where he is going to get a job or a house
He can basically have anything he wants

This is true. I'd still rather have my life than his.

My church isn't contemptuous of therapy. In fact, they've done some with me. I object to the Scientologists' opposition to *therapy*; I don't think they're objecting to overmedication. They don't like any kind of treatment that's not theirs. They make all sorts of claims about what they can do, charge ridiculous sums of monoey for it, and waltz off to the bank with their claims.

verte, my church actually offers counseling. And the church we branched out of (these are non denominational "vineyard christian fellowships" )
had a lady who had gone to school and become a trained psychologist. She did all the counseling for the church from a christian point of view, but with full training
she shrunk my head for a year

Hmmm, I found this thread a bit late...let me just say I don't advocated violence normally, but somebody needs to kick Tom's ass. Perhaps Brooke Shields, she's like a foot taller than him anyway.

But I digress. For any of you wanting to see a transcript of the interview with some relevant pics please run, do not walk to this website. I swear I laughed my ass of.

we're talking about belief systems.

scientology is a belief system.

christianity, and it's various forms, is a belief system.

thus, they have parallels that i felt were relevant to point out.

and besides, just about every possible social issue under the sun is commented upon by the armies of talking heads claiming to represent right wing christianity, as they then claim things such as "freedom, faith, and family" as the exclusive province of a particular kind of Christianity (see Ralph Reed's current political platform).

it's everywhere.

"When you talk about postpartum, you can take people today, women, and what you do is you use vitamins. There is a hormonal thing that is going on, scientifically, you can prove that. But when you talk about emotional, chemical imbalances in people, there is no science behind that.

"You can use vitamins to help a woman through those things."
I know I'm stating the blatantly obvious, but Tom Cruise hasn't got a bloody clue! DO NOT condemn or mock someone for using medication for mental problems, there is no possible way you can understand what the hell is going on inside someone else's head. Post-partum depression is a complicated condition; don't you think if it was merely a vitamin deficiency, doctors would prescribe high-potency vitamins rather than psychiatric medicines?

To me, post-partum depression was the emotional roller-coaster ride from Hell. It was indescribably horrible. Nearly four years later, I'm still struggling with the effects. Maybe I should've tried medication. If it worked for Brooke Shields and helped her through it, I'm glad; I wouldn't wish PPD on my worst enemy.

Sue, thanks for sharing. I have a depressive disorder myself, I know about stuff you can call the Emotional Roller Coaster From Hell, and I'm pissed off at these clueless idiots. Vitamins! Phooey! What does he know?

Vitamins work for me. In fact, since all antidepressants are generally little more than stimulants, they make me feel like shit. I want to calm down, not get more hyper!
