well my brain has been chronically impaired by psychiatric meds. i was reading a book by him called "Toxic Psychiatry" a few months ago and many of the things mentioned in the book i have either experienced myself or read about someone experiencing it.
now, i do understand that these meds can and have helped many people. but they have also hurt many people. and some of these people have been harmed permenently. whether through permanent effects from the med or by suicide. and how many years did it take from the time antidepressants first came on the market to the when they finally got the warning for increased suicidal thoughts? around 50 years! it would be foolish to think they didnt fully know about this until around 2004. i'm positive they knew about it back in the 60's.
what im trying to say is, they need to be up front about everything these meds can do to a person. i have been made to feel hopeless because when i bring up my permanent effects that some psychiatric meds have had on me.. doctors look at me like im an idiot. and they they start telling me im wrong. and then they tell me im delusional for thinking this.
i know i have an atypical type of brain, but i am sick and tired of doctors making me feel ashamed of my dysfunctional brain and how it got this way.
