What Dr. Lenhardt has to say about Mental Health and Lyme
What Dr. Lenhardt has to say about Lyme
He Sera, if I was redundant, i didn’t mean to be. I certainly did not plagerize on purpose, All thoughts were written with my own brain and unique words.
With that said, I wake up this morning disgusted at my comment below about falling in to the trap of saying radical Islam: for religious extremism would be better, and groups full of hate, would be better than that.
In closing, I can only plead computer glitch and not proof reading my long post, for it was late and I always copy what *I* write incase the computer crashes.
Thanks for your timely response and your thoughts as always.
YES! It *IS* Islamic Extremism that is the problem, not ‘mental illness’; We are all born Tabula Rasa (a clean slate) – hatred is a learned behavior. I agree.
sorry I don’t click on links I dont know on blogs, but I agree with your opening sentence.
Keep up the good work!

sorry for the typos
With all due respect, I think we are off topic here: The issue is Macro not Micro. The idea of the Schizophrenic Brain is changing (although some people would like to put it back to the ‘Stone Ages’ of Psychiatry and Psychology and use it as an excuse to for everything deemed extreme behavior.
In my opinion: based on my Education, Field Research, and Embedded research, I conclude, blaming and scapegoating the mentally ill as dangerous is wrong, baseless, and a false positive study. Looking at the statistics and DSM-5 (of which can diagnose everything including a rabit at this point), the dangerously ‘mentally ill’ constitute a very small minority of the diagnosed population: it’s the mainstream media that fuels fire to the stigma, the week minded – of whom eat that bull sh*t up and talk to their congressional representatives, of whom feel pressured by all sides to look strong against a large peaceful population. It’s like the 1930’s all over again.
Now with that said, and in the interest of full disclosure, I regularly talk with Friends and Family current and retired in law enforcement, of whom see what at first hand, may look like mental illness every day… They admit it’s hard at first not to see through the stats, however, realize someone may just be having a bad day, or are ‘odd/eccentric’, and just need to cool off and aren’t necessarily all that dangerous.
We aren’t born with hate. Hate is a learned behavior. We are born Schizophrenic Brain is changing (although some people would like to put it back to the ‘Stone Ages’ of Psychiatry and Psychology and use it as an excuse to for everything deemed extreme behavior.
Now with that said, and in the interest of full disclosure, I regularly talk with Friends and Family current and retired with backgrounds in law enforcement, of whom are on the front lines every day and see an odd/eccentric cluster, and tell me it’s hard to not get cynical.
We all can agree people aren’t born with hate, we are born ‘tabula rosa’, of which means ‘blank slate’ and in many Eastern Countries what we in the West call Schitzophrenia, is widely regarded as a gift of a true Mystic …
In closing, I think if we condemn people with mental illness, we have to condemn Major Religions too. If Moses saw the burning bush in todays world: he’d be locked up, druged, and labelled.
I have faith, those who have strong opinions about what they don’t fully understand can see through the main stream media and brain washed Government bull sh*t and recognize we are all human: The dangerously mentally ill only constitute an infinitesimal of 1% of the population.
That is all for now.
The Government and Big Media’s latest attempt to ostracize, marginalize, periferize, and warehouse an otherwise easily exploitable population; luckily we DVM-V Diagnosed Humans are stronger and more intelligent than to let intollerence, stigma, and hatred permeate and saturate the main stream ethos and collective unconscious of others.
Benzos are good for tapering off alcohol and opiates, and pose a lesser danger, as Benzos have no known side effects. It’s true 50% of people get addicted, which is why a taper is good, as well as blood tests to ensure no confounding variables are present during detox. … informed consent should be up to the patient, not the Government nanny state.
Based on my observations, I conclude, Psychiatry is more of an art, than anything. Unfortunately some are bad at this healing art, however Whittaker is not one of them. Thank Goodness.
If you are not getting better, change Psychiatrists. It really can be that simple. God Bless America.
There’s a common phrase about Mental Health professionals doing more harm than good, because they are not being put back in the silo’s of which they belong and delving out things that actually heal, when you need it.
As a consumer, I shouldn’t have to work for them. They should have to work for me.
When did it all go wrong?
