Later today I’ll be doing my first livestream

Okay, so….definitely did NOT know it was gonna up and snap a picture for the thumbnail during setup.

Anyway, I’m gonna do a thing and talk about my experiences with the psych industry. I believe that anybody who advocates for people to go to therapy, anybody who is pro-medication, has an ethical responsibility to also advocate for reform in the psych industry.

Conflicts of interest are ridiculous. Did you know 20 of the 29 people on the board for the DSM-5 were receiving “honoria”-that is $$$ from pharmaceutical companies? For that edition of the DSM, several disorders were reclassified as depressive disorders, because money. The drug companies want more anti-depressants prescribed

I’ve been getting more into the online anti-psychiatry community, and I guess i’m gonna have to be the fence-sitter of that community. I don’t believe nobody ever needs medication. I don’t believe ALL mental illness is a trauma reaction, and I definitely don’t believe that psychiatry should be abolished.

But it does have a lot of problems, and if you don’t have a severe mental illness, if you’ve never been in-patient, or had police involved in crisis intervention, then you haven’t seen the side of the psych field that I have.

It’s really not pretty.

Basically, since my last episode had me acting so stupid on the internet that I couldn’t look any worse if I tried, I’m just not embarrassed to talk about this stuff anymore. I had a very public meltdown. I couldn’t look like more of an unhinged dumbass if I tried.

Cool. Nothing left to lose. Now let’s talk about problems in the psych industry.
