Funny because it’s so true. Of course there’s really nothing funny about it, but, well… I know a lot of you will understand.September 20, 2017 at 12:53 pm #112787AnonymousInactive
If SSRI commercials were honest almost no one would buy their drugs. Except the extremely desperate and stupid!September 21, 2017 at 5:58 pm #113207AnonymousInactive
Ha ha! I’m surprised they had this on a mainstream site.
Went to a church cookout the other day. Two women were praising Prozac to the skies for how “effective” it was. They learned about how effective and safe it was through reading Everything You Need to Know About Prozac. I googled the book (neither knew squat about the author) and found Dr. Jonas is the CEO of a Big Pharma company and a psychiatrist. Surprise, surprise! That informative book is basically just a LONG advertisement. A brochure would have been a much shorter read.
Tired of telling idiots anything! Amazing how everyone at church unthinkingly buys into bio-determinism and social darwinism. None even ask any questions at all.
Like: Since when is sin an illness in your brain? Did King David and Job just need happy pills? At what point does the human moral accountability begin and end since you idiots believe pills can reform all criminals? Can crazy people go to Heaven since they need pills in lieu of a conscience (psychiatry assumes the SMI have none)? If, for some reason, you can’t get your “meds” and die “non-compliant” will you go to Hell since you die outside of a state of grace (on brain drugs)? Are only SMI capable of horrendous evil? Oh yes, and since the Bible says drunkenness is a sin, why are you idiots with your drug commercials at church telling us it’s a physical disease you have pills for? Since when can pills or injections or random bursts of electricity in the brain turn a bad person into a good one? Most people with TBI (a real disorder even if it is found in the DSM 5) do not become nicer due to brain damage! SSRI shootings aside, we all know guys on heroin, meth, and other addictive drugs will go on murderous rampages. Drugs do not reform bad morals!
Funny how Dr. Szazs the atheist was a firmer believer in the human soul and moral responsibility than idiot sheeple at church. Unfortunately all the churches I attend are THAT DUMB. And they think they’re being smart and compassionate. What they are doing is helping the members from the “Mental Health” Center drum up business. Since they are wealthy tithers that will benefit the church. $$$$ Just like when antebellum churches winked at slavery.
I guess we don’t need the Bible now. Why go to Church since we have drugs, social services and psycho therapy?September 21, 2017 at 6:02 pm #113210AnonymousInactive
When they ask what I “do” I tell them I’m on SSI for Fibromyalgia. None of their business, but they will wonder otherwise. And the media doesn’t tell titillating stories about folks with FM or Lupus who go on killing sprees.
“An illness like any other?” I don’t think so. And those who say that are lying hypocrites, since you don’t see cardio specialists locking up people with heart troubles or six people manhandling screaming diabetics to inject them with insulin.January 3, 2018 at 12:27 pm #145372ShawnParticipant
