Going back to the essence of the article, I have to admit to feeling pretty useless. Here is someone who has risked everything to speak out in solidarity with those who have suffered as a result of drug approvals that should never have happened. He has sacrificed so much to stand up for people like me and yet I feel I can do very little in return. I can (and will) write a couple of letters, but it feels insignificant. The drug companies, the FDA, the attitudes of so many mental health workers…these are just overwhelmingly huge. Change is desperately needed but where does an individual even begin? I’m in awe of Kavanagh’s courage and determination and I really wish I could also stand up to be counted in some way. Yet I fear I fall too easily into the box marked ‘victim’ and, with that, any power I may have simply vanishes. I feel increasingly inadequate when faced by the enormity of the battle. Surely I’m not the only one?
