hi. Szasz scares me these days, honestly. Its interesting...I became a Christian, and I think he makes some valid points, but he's way too punitive, pro-capitalist, etc. -shudder-

I feel as if I've been pulled in multiple directions. Its this, not that, you're this, not that, stop this, stop that...ugh.

My parents are more "well-to-do" (for this area) at this point, and that helps tremendously. We've reconciled, they take good care of me, I receive disability, and...

I sometimes wonder if my "madness" is necessary, in order for me to have my parents behind me, have some -space-, figure things out ("recover"), etc.

The 1st hospital was a private, for profit affair that ripped me to shreds, no lie. I almost died of a restoril overdose. The 2nd hospital is/was "very well-regarded," and they gave me the works, 50s style (heavy shock, a hefty dose of Haldol the next day, etc.).

I...don't know what to make of things. I'm having better luck w/ the community/public mental health clinic. No forced treatment for me, no controlled substances, no profit motive in victimizing me, either.

I don't know. Whether "mental illness" is real as a biologically-rooted entity or not, it is very, very real as a social construct. Maybe one day I'll fully "recover" and do...something. Or maybe not. Life could be far worse, that's for sure.

Thanks for your reply, btw. :-)
