I don’t think humanity is going to continue to agree to what is government approved torturing of people who have already undergone trauma. I don’t think humanity wants to be inhumane. So eventually those people who have altered states of consciousness and unusual sensory experiences won’t be subjected to a forced psychiatric regime, by the fearful public, who if they were better would never approve of such things as ECT and forced drugging.
being farted out all over the place and little scared psychiatrist’s parrots
saying what they should, lest they be reminded of that time they maxed out
their credit card and drove across several states without stopping. Or, even
that time they started accusing people of poisoning their food, when they hadn’t
heard that it was actually Monsanto doing it, not their sweet innocent cousins.
are a number of videos on this page that upset me (with the exception of
Christopher who actually talks about the trauma and his recovery that happened
through conversation and support.)
would I listen to Kay Jamison’s view that psychiatric treatment is ‘important’?
She is clearly suffering under the medication she takes. I can see the way it
dulls her eyes and droops her face!
I haven’t got time to critique
each video and say why they’re not positive representations for recovery and reducing stigma. They do nothing for validation, or enabling either. So, I’m
going to focus on an actor who should know better, in hope to enlighten her as
to why she is upsetting to so many (yes of course she will read my blog, she
really wants to know a psychiatric survivor’s view for her next film role…)
Dear Glenn Close, saying,
‘drapetomania’ a billion times with actor’s glee, in 1851, would not make the word less offensive.
Same with saying a person has a ‘sexual orientation disturbance’ in 1970. I
mean, while people ‘joke’ about brides who run away in Hollywood movies, saying
a person’s sexual orientation is a ‘disturbance', a 'deviation' or a 'disorder' when there is nothing wrong
with their sexual choices, is about a societal disturbance. It is society being prejudiced. The fact is, sweetheart,
psychiatry is disturbing and when you repeat words like ‘schizophrenia,’ and ‘mental
illness’, they hurt people like me, because they remind me how I’ve been
abducted, tortured, threatened, physically restrained and had to put up with the
coercive-control brainwashing that goes on, as recently as 2011. And before you
jump to conclusions that I was behaving like some Fatal attraction role you played, may I remind you, about the myththatso many people hold
close to their heart that people with mental health problems are violent.
Yes, it is a myth. And no, I wasn't being violent.
Okay, you should’ve got that any
way, because it’s on the website where you talk of your relatives and ‘their
illness’. You seem to have little insight into why your relatives got so upset
they went into an emotional discombobulated crisis. But you’re happy to give
them labels that no one wants. (Except maybe the Bipolar. That one is new and
sounds nice. Manic-depressive, people hated the sound of that. Schizophrenia,
roll it on your tongue and it sounds like a cat saying, ‘back off!’ as for ‘mental
illness’ being something to get used to, come off it!
How could you be so stupid as
not to be aware of this? Don’t you read?
Stop farting psychiatrisms and get
with it! Don't turn coping mechanisms and discombobulated responses to grief and trauma into 'symptoms'! And don't you dare ever use the 's' word where I can hear it again!
Initially NO PS: If you like my poster of psychiatry farting, you can buy it at Redbubble. (Alright I'll send you a postcard I know stars expect everything for free.)
