What can I say, I have an insatiable passion for everything psychology! Whether it be psychiatric medication, behaviorism, psychoanalysis, mindfulness, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), ECT (Electro-Convulsive therapy) or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, I’ve read an article on it, done a paper on it, or participated in some obscure debate about it.
As a psychology major and a psychiatric patient, I’ve seen both the good things and the bad things. I’m not here to bash psychiatry but I also refuse to put absolute faith in it. So far, I’m further along in my studies of the science than psychologists are in figuring out what’s “wrong” with me and I may keep it that way, at least for a little longer. There’s no trouble in having a little fun, is there?
This is a place of information, of support, and of hope. Many people are touched with mental illness, some of which are absolutely destroyed by it. I’ll share what works for me and what works for others. I’ll share new techniques being developed, new drugs, corruption on the inside of the industry from a close-up and personal viewpoint, successes on the inside of the industry, and hopefully show a few people that a label is not the end of the road. I welcome you to join me on this journey; you’ll learn something new every couple days!
