    So what’s the deal with this psychforums anti-psych thing? Is it worth posting anything there or is anything truly anti-psychiatry censored?

    Psychiatry is very hard to satirize — everything the Onion says in jest sounds totally like what actually happens.

    Anti-psychiatry or critical psychiatry? Ne’er the twain shall meet. Do you consider yourself anti-psych (AP)? If so there are possibilities.

    This forum started out as an anti-psych motivated thing but MIA wouldn’t let us call it that.

    Sounds fine but I don’t use FB nor should anyone. http://stallman.org/facebook.html

    Is there another source where this info can be found?

    Yup — Those to be resisted above all are now “the resistance.” Just like David Duke rejects the label of “racist.”

    I might be confusing crazed killers. There’s the campus stabber too, are they blaming that on MI or his being Black?

    The issue for MIA has always been about the positive outcomes pharmacology is not producing in the mental health field.

    This is true, but over the past few years MIA has also taken on a de facto role as an unofficial meeting ground for anti-psych oriented people; its efficacy in this regard is what I was referring to. Many of the discussions and articles have a “been there/done that” feel at the moment. Which is maybe why a lot of former regulars are not participating as much.

    I would love to see us come up with an anti-psych MIA, it should be high on our agenda; unfortunately the AP coalition site is not very active, if at all.

    I’m testing out Ambien and I will let you know how it goes.

    It will likely make you dependent without realizing it and require higher & higher doses before you realize you now have an additional problem to deal with.

    If you push yourself through your regular daily routines even if you haven’t slept you’ll eventually fall asleep, even if you try to stay awake. Meanwhile even lying in bed awake for 8 hours will help keep you reasonably healthy in most cases. Though I’m not an MD (fortunately).

    Dude! Been looking for you, please get in touch.

    Don’t get me wrong, MIA is immensely valuable in that it draws in people based on its liberalism, something an anti-psych site couldn’t do in these still relatively dark ages. MIA conversations help fuel the anti-psych fires by raising consciousness and helping people make connections. But I do think there is a divergence between what RW is doing and the editorial line, at least as reflected in some of the “pop-psych” pieces that seem to have been proliferating lately.
