I’ve been part of that. Abused people also tend to seek redemption for transgressions through public “confession”; I understand your article to promote this policy. Oldhead, you know I agree with you. (Cmoe***) (Cmoe***) Thinking. If a comment really does appear offensive, please report it to the moderator, and we will make our best judgment about whether to remove it or ask for it to be edited. I agree. You really think this miserable system will ever care enough or even be capable of being so convenient as for one to be able to find solutions for the existential horror it foments in the Yellow Pages? A “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation to be sure; but is it a 50/50 split? And without a doubt survivors, psychiatric survivors, do it to mental health professionals. Keep in mind that I only challenge things the statements you make that I don’t necessarily support, and that much of your perspective resonates with me. When I was 16 and didn’t stand up to my corrupt political science professor, I had all the shame from bullying in my family and school holding me back. Unfortunately for the standard analysis, I’m not talking about self-despising doormats, but women — one in particular — who were more spiritually liberated and politically conscious than most liberal feminists. L. wanted to help her beloved sister–not kill her. (HuzzahH******), Your right, most of us don't want to hurt even a little animal, but people with money and power keep fanning flames of war! What is your preferred term to reference those in “counseling/therapy”? Such prevention is fine but there must also be some other option for a family, or an individual, who is having a crisis of a “mental health” sort…some option other than drugs that kill and “care” that demeans, degrades, takes away rights, and gives a person a label at a young age – or any age. Oldhead, I am not a racist for disagreeing about Abu-Jamal; his extensive Wikipedia article does not mention a “passenger in Mumia’s brother’s car.”. The movement I’m talking about is about the only thing around these parts which is led and organised by young people. you are trying to take down innocent people.. And he talked me through some rough spots when I was coming off my SSRI. I worked in public schools alot – many serve as direct pipelines to getting little children on ADHD drugs. The underground railroad IS a way out of the clutches of the loony bin. I shouldn’t speak up, because I would just end up making things worse, turn the tables and now I would be the one doing the public shaming and diagnosing, by outing the school Director. transition from without and from within…how about that… (Glenburn*******), (sorted by price before rebate from merchant located in or delivering to USA), Flames of War K2 (T54) Ironclad Company PAVN Miniatures VPABX01 (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War British Armoured Platoon (Toys & Games Games), flames of war: k2 t54 ironclad company (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War 152mm Artillery Batallion (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War Hohei Platoon Japan Early War Miniatures by Battlefront JP702 (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War BT5 Fast Tankovy Company Soviet Early War Miniatures SBX19 (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War: Late War British 25 PDR Field Troop (BBX63) (921469243480 Toys & Games Games), Flames of War Train Yard Switching Tower Terrain By Battlefront BB186 (Toys & Games Games), British Universal Carrier Patrol BBX55 Flames of War Battlefront Miniatures (998387006350 Toys & Games Games), Flames of War TGBX09 Team Yankee M113 Panzermorser Zug Battlefront Miniatures (998379415337 Toys & Games Games), USA 57mm Anti-Tank Platoon Flames of War UBX81 Battlefront Miniatures (998391171037 Toys & Games Games), Flames of War TQBX03 Team Yankee Israeli ZSU-57-2 AA Company (998386081921 Toys & Games Games), strelkovy company flames of war figure (Toys & Games Games), Flames of War Late War: British Auster Observation Post (BR951) (921469243473 Toys & Games Games), The French & Indian War in North Carolina: The Spreading Flames of War (Pictorial Military), flame in the night a novel of world war ii france munn heather, french and indian war in north carolina the spreading flames of war, Use the search box above to find best price for specific product. https://quoteinvestigator.com/2017/10/23/be-change/. It is a notion I have learned to let go of and pretend that I don’t believe it, but I have come across little evidence to the contrary. But anarchism is a dead end from all I’ve ever seen. 'Cause this is all we know 'Cause this is all we know I hung on until I discovered the Open Dialogue team in the UK, in 2016!!) I don’t understand your fence sitting position, honestly. Follow/Fav Through Smoke and Flames By: AuraofOblivion Takes place after DDD. Maybe this is #ustoo. I had been selfish in going along with their decision to keep his behavior quiet and give him the benefit of the doubt, when he was in fact taking no responsibility and was going around blaming his client for being borderline. Yes, I will see you through the smoke and flames, on the frontlines of war. Reading this over again, when I made the statement that “Will also was an asshole…,” I should have emphasized that I have also been an asshole, as have all men who are honest with themselves. I tended to shrug off these reservations and keep going, and eventually made my way through the program and to my goals of an MA and a Diploma in Process Work. He also had a huge horrific blind spot. Once again you avoid the point AND the self-criticism. Sexuality is ALWAYS going to be a sensitive issue. Yes, we know drugs ruin all chance for full recovery but they see the tranquilizing effect sometimes produced and imagine it proves they’re being “helped.”. I was afraid the Institute I had been part of, the teachers and therapists I had worked with, would deploy their own categorizing and labeling against me. Perhaps I skimmed the article too quickly. You both have called out (as have I) any, and all, forms of arrogance and power priviledges when it comes to professionals functioning in the “mental health” system. Sorry, EBL, but I’m with Oldhead on this one. It seems to me to be a much less-naïve version of anarchy/pacifism. But, with so much money on the line (BigPharma, BigPsychiatry, BigMentalHealthSystems), it is a powerful force, and it seems a shame to tear down those who want to change it, whatever change means to them, to have a rigid dogma that excludes rather than includes. Hunk and I got the cart righted, lifted Keith back onto the seat, and flew on to the refugee tents. It is so encouraging to read that the movement in the US is reaching for something better. The kind called sex trafficking similar to slavery rather than voluntary. Shrinks are good at hiding stuff, they pretend they have no issues, and maybe they don’t because There is no need to worry about a handful of commentators under the line of Mad in America. There was a clinical air combined with a spiritual insularity, with expertise and enlightenment vested in the higher ups. We all carry our own burdens of our history; there is no need to carry the burdens of others’ sins as well. A system that “needs alternatives” to itself is a system we should get rid of. One of my friends turned to me and said that his parents teach at the same school where I got my degree in Jungian psychology, the Process Work Institute of Portland. Behind closed doors the school must have had its reasons, believing they should hire him anyway and remain quiet about his history. There is a moderator and I’ve reported your comment. You can't begin to understand. I simply don’t think the infantilization, de-humanization, and sub-humanization of the “mental patient” by legal and “mental health” authorities very helpful to achieving human rights for the human being in the “mental patient” role, and the loony bin trap. Often the SSRI made them label us incurably evil deviants. Another time a little boy put on the drugs had a seizure. They might subtly put me back into the client role, and then, as therapists so often do when challenged, say there must be something wrong inside me, something not spiritually advanced enough or psychologically healed enough, in me (and then condescendingly even offer to help my distress).
