psychiatric drugs are not cures ~ far from it

Due to limitations in the dominant (biomedical) psychiatric paradigm ~ from A Prescription for Psychiatry by Peter Kinderman:

role of the biomedical specialist defaults to making inaccurate, unreliable and invalid diagnoses and issuing prescriptions for psychiatric drugs which, as we saw in the previous chapter, bear little systematic relationship to the diagnosis, are in no real sense ‘cures’ and seem to cause nearly as many problems as they solve, at least in the long run.

Moonday study time

It’s 4:53am on 12 February 2018 (16/7), a Moonday, and I am sitting down to my first full day as a full-time student in a very long time. It feels so wonderful to have a formal structure through which I can digest and express all these ideas I’ve been exploring the last few years already ~ all the drifting of the past seven or so years feels like it has been utterly worth it because it has brought me to this.
