  • My definition of disability is “when you can’t turn away from able-ism”; so yes, I consider myself disabled. And I do not consider that a reason for pity or a tragedy, but rather, a signal that I need more supports in order to survive (and thrive) in a society that is not set up for people like me.

  • The issue I have is this: if it’s horrendous treatment for the “wrongly diagnosed”, then why is it fine and dandy for the correctly diagnosed… assuming, of course, that there is ever a scientifically verifiable, correct diagnosis?

    Answer: it’s not. The treatment sucks, it’s ineffective at best, and toxic. But it’s not very revolutionary to say that people who aren’t “truly” Bipolar shouldn’t be given toxic drugs.
