It's just ridiculous how effective some of the "tricks" for mental stuff are.

I've been frustrated with how little we know about the way brain works if antidepressants are hit-and-miss and the doctors frequently suggest just "getting out more".
The latter could almost be made by 5yo, like no shit.


In the same vein goes frustration with pseudoscience and spiritual stuff.

Like, how fragile we all are if "directing energy" speak is so common? If we confuse signal for noise so much that so many people believe batshit crazy stuff invented by essentially mentally ill people?

It might sound like venting, but it's more of genuine questions that I struggle to find answers to.
