> Sorry. i'm just so sick of hearing about this kind of s**t. No other field has had the lack of ethical responsibility, client (patient) concern & compassion, oversight, and AHHHH idontknowwhatelse ... as the field of psychiatry. From lobotomies and ineffectually developed ECT to overdosing of antipsychotics and the modern-day reliance on newer drugs, and everything else-- all the many many, more minor, yet-still-significant ineptitudes-- psychiatry, although immensely helpful, has caused an extraordinary amount of unrestituted damage and suffering. And more than anything else, in my opinion, it is because of arrogance and overconfidence (often coupled with extreme voids in empathy and compassion) that this occurs.

I totally agree with alot of what you said, but I was grateful to hear my pdoc say I will probably be struggling with depression for the rest of my life. Even if it doesn't turn out that way (hopefully its not!!!) I felt my seemingly endless resistence against the darkest oppressions was acknowledged, and he wasn't being sickeningly optimistic...if it's true, like with any other medical problem, I want my doc to tell me straight. a chemical imbalance in my brain isn't going to fix itself...terminal cancer usu doesn't just go away...amputated limbs don't grow back...though i hate the field of psychiatry in general--the commercialized treatments (in the form of medicalization) caused by downright greed (!) the closest to a cure i might have truly felt, was hearing that i may never be "cured"
