I Want to Break Free by Queen

This weeks Song of the Week was recommended by MIA reader Z: “Treatment and (mis)diagnoses of mental illness as a result of a relationship with and divorce from an abusive husband feels like a trap that I want to break free from. Now I have recovered, but still feel psychiatrists owe me my sanity. I don’t want my new partner to marry the labels given by ignorant and arrogant psychiatrists.”
