The Guardian catches on to the fact that “For many, the side-effects of antipsychotics are worse than the symptoms they’re meant to treat. No wonder some people with schizophrenia refuse to take them.”
I was pleasantly surprised to find that this is an excellent, honest article about so called schizophrenia, the horrors of neuroleptic drugs and the potential for cognitive therapy for people with symptoms fraudulently stigmatized as schizophrenia or even the latest bipolar fad fraud. The authors expose the fact that schizophrenia is a bogus label for a wide variety of diverse symptoms caused by many possible stressors or reasons.
I kept waiting for the usual ax to fall or the push for some other bogus lies for the so called cause of bogus DSM stigmas and/or a push for another brain/body damaging treatment like ECT, but rather, this article seemed to be on the side of those suffering severe emotional distress and the possible real environmental or other normal reasons such as lack of sleep that might cause a person to have certain negative symptoms.
All in all, a very good, promising, hopeful article!
Well said Donna
Psychotherapy or ‘human help’ has been around for thousands of years. It works perfectly. There’s no such thing as ‘Schizophrenia’. It was invented to steal money.
The trick is to diagnose a life long disease. Turn the person into a patient with tranquillizers. ‘Withdrawal syndrome’ can then confirm the diagnosis.
