I'm not saying here that one should or shouldn't ... but it's very interesting how a lot of people use some sort of self-medication to help get through their episodes or help stay out of them.  My doctor warned me about using mary jane because it can increase the paranoia (was he ever right too!).  It's the main reason I put my son on medication when he was diagnosed ADD/ADHD  and Depressive Mood Disorder... I didn't want him self-medicating like I did when I was young.   I find that when I take my regularly prescribed meds that I don't need to self-medicate.  Not saying I don't have a drink, etc. for fun on occasion ... just not out of need.  That's me though and I'm grateful too. 



Self-medication has the advantage of being easy and convenient - it's not as good, but it's hard to avoid .. part of the problem of going to the doctor is that it makes the whole thing more *real*.  It's easier to pretend when it's just a drink now and then .. or in my case, caffeine overload .....
