    Another way to think of it:

    My eyes don't work correctly, so I wear glasses to correct it. They're not perfect, and yeah, it would be super-awesome to have 20/20 vision, but those aren't the cards I was dealt.

    My husband's brain chemicals don't work correctly, so he takes drugs to correct it. They're not perfect, and yeah, it would be super-awesome to have "normal" moods, but those aren't the cards he was dealt.

    I personally don't see the meds he takes to correct his problem any more differently than I see the glasses I wear to take care of my problem. We both need external help.
