I don't know what I want

I've unwillingly gone off my medication due to insurance difficulties, but now I don't know if I want to start again. When I'm on my medicine I experience what I imagine people must call "determination" and "willpower", things that I thought didn't exist because I'd never experienced them. On my medication, I can make myself do things that bore, disgust, or are otherwise meaningless to me constantly. On my medication I can stop "remembering". Off ...

Poor and trapped.

I tried posting in a different part of the forum but somebody called me incoherent and schizophrenic there. English is not my first langugage, so that might be why. Anyway, I think posting here in the anti-psych part of the forum will be safer.

I've been tortured by psychiatry. I handed myself in a few years ago, mostly to be honest because I needed the money I could get from disability.

I have body dysmorphic ...

I Want My Life Back

I have BPD, Bipolar, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I'm turning 30 next month. I feel like I'm just a tired little girl, not the woman I should be.

I had a doctor who started me on Zoloft (iirc) when I was about thirteen years old. Then he experimented with meds for a few years. I was manipulative, trying to get him to wean me off, but he just kept prescribing more of this, this new ...

Fear of re-hospitalisation

Hi there, I am after any advice for getting over the fear of being re-hospitalised. I have only been twice hospitalised against my will, but the last time they put me on an involuntary treatment order and I had to have forced injections for a year or two. It's been four of five years since that last experience but I have been left feeling extremely vulnerable and afraid. I have tried to distance myself from ...

If it can happen with this, why not psychotropics?

Evidence is now coming out about how Purdue pharma influenced doctors and institutions while downplaying the risk knowing this drug was dangerous from the beginning. Not to mention donating tens of thousands to colleges and politicians. If it can happen here, whose to say it hasn't happened with other drugs and other companies? It has and it is...

The obvious correlation of truth and lies

Hello everyone here.

I'm starting from a blank slate on this forum, so I'll try to explain my self clearly.

This post is about medicating people that see the truth of reality and how this affects society. It also comes with a question of ignorance on the part of group thinking.

I've been involuntarily committed 9 times in that many years. I've had ect 4 times against my will. Yes 4.
This is fine obviously, ...

Snowflakes on "MadinAmerica" have meltdown over story

The author wrote ”I put so much work into it but it was all for nothing.”

My comment in reply:

You can’t judge the results by the over reaction of half a dozen snowflakes. 1800 views divided by 9 peoples negative reactions. Big deal. That’s 1 in 200.

Think about a bunch of guys watching football. It looks like everyone is loving it cause guys are expected to like football but alot of us can’t ...

Psychiatry regularly treats people like criminals + animals

Photos show condition of Horry County Sheriff’s van after two mental health patients drowned
http://www.wmbfnews.com/2018/11/14/phot ... s-drowned/

Looks like a cage out of NAZI Germany. Take a look before you think I used the word NAZI lightly.

Neither of these two people had anything to do with the criminal justice system.

One of the patients, Nicolette Green, 43, had schizophrenia and had been committed on the recommendation of her ...

Getting banned for being anti-psych

Has anyone been banned from forums for being anti-psych? So many people take psych drugs and swear that they work. They don't like being told that they are probably just getting a placebo response. If you don't get banned for that it still makes people mad at you and then they attack you for anything you say even if psychiatry is not the topic. People report you to the mods for being a 'jerk'. Being ...
