I don’t know how to caption/describe this one because I’m too mad rn? Would someone else be able? Alternately I’ll come back to it and add something later

Meds work for some people and that’s great but for depression I am personally not at all interested in the side effects of any/all legal drugs prescribed for this condition. Which in my personal case is a condition created by capitalism and bullshit just like this. Fucking reimburse me for my therapy you fucking cowards

Ahh fuckit here’s a description. It is a letter from Aetna, an insurance company, telling me that my health matters to me and my loved ones and that they have a trademarked Health Action they are proposing, which is that if I’m not taking medication for my depression, it might help, and I should talk to my doctor about which medication would be right for me. The phrasing is generally in a vein that suggests this is purely optional and yet it’s what I’m “supposed” to do.
