  • I’d like to thank everyone for your stimulating and incisive comments and reactions to my piece. I initially circulated it among family and close friends and the response was disappointing to me. It was very difficult for them to accept my change of diagnosis and that made me angry and hurt. The positive comments I’ve read and received here have been really great. My gratitude goes out
    to Mad In America for all they’re doing!

  • Thanks for your comments. I agree, it was big that he called my problem iatrogenic. I didn’t expect that from an institution that’s commonly thought to strictly adhere to the medical model. I believe he read all of my accounts of my psychiatric history before reaching that decision which is why I say that putting our experiences into our own words can bring about significant changes in treatment.
