Solution for people who are stuck

Question: I can’t get help from any psychiatrist in my area. They all say no. What do I do?

Answer: You will not get better by searching for a psychiatrist. Doctors cannot cure you. If you continue to look to them for answers you will only get more disabled.

Q: But I need help! I have a real illness and I am in pain. What do I do?

A: Have you even tried doing your own research? Have you tried helping yourself? Have you looked into anything alternative?

Q: I tried an alternative practitioner but the cost was insane!

A: If the cost is insane, it’s a scam. You wouldn’t go to an overpriced doctor, would you? Keep looking. Only try out what’s reasonably priced or things you do yourself. If it looks like a scam, it probably is!

Q: But I have no energy and I’m in pain.

A: That’s because you keep going back to doctors. How badly do you want your health back? You have had the energy to go to your previous doctor appointments like clockwork and fill all those prescriptions…….Now hop to it and get your life back!

Posted on MIA

I find my experience of “patients” is that they, too, stubbornly cling to the idea that “Doctor knows best.” Patients are lazy. They often staunchly refuse to do their own research. They refuse to claim autonomy and self-expertise, often deferring to the doctor over and over, even to the point of doc-shopping out of desperation for this “help” that doesn’t exist.

Recovery, to me, meant realizing there was no help. There is no help except the immense strength we each have within ourselves.

Re-recording the entire show on Brainwashing

This is exhausting work but I am progressing with it. It involves audio editing and clipping. I’ve had to re-record quite a bit when vacuum cleaner upstairs has interfered (arrghh!!!). The mic also picks up “hair-splitting.” I swear every time my braids come near the mic it sounds like a clap of thunder…..

I now have to splice together several segments.

Meanwhile, I got a major Toastmasters event to prepare for. I had to set up a new printer, too. And I got RATS in my house.

Did they teach us how to deal with this in the nuthouse? Did the “coping skills toolbox” tell us how to deal with this?

Aw, c’mon. If this was “back then,” you know what? I guarantee I’d be right in the loony bin. “Waaaah! Help me!” That’s right. My life circumstances are far more pressured now than before, but I’m LOVING MY LIFE 100 times more than before.

Ditch the diagnosis. Get away from the doctors, who only keep you sick and disabled. Stop believing the lies. You do not have a permanent “mental illness” such as “bipolar” etc many of which are pharma inventions, not medical diseases, not infections, not lesions of the brain. Get off of your delusions about mental illness and LIVE YOUR LIFE.

Note I said “Many of which.” Some are. For instance, you can be damaged if you go to a doctor and get shock treatments. Those cause traumatic brain injury which you may or may not recover from. If you do get better, recovery takes a long time, far longer than stated in that video they showed us that was a pack of lies, right? Bunch of propaganda if you ask me. Most people do see improvement…but most do not recover completely. That is a damn good reason to stay away from certain doctors, no?

Meanwhile, I got a rat infestation to think about. A nuisance.I can think of far worse shit to hit the fan.

Back to enjoying my life.

Correction on time of today’s show and APOLOGY!

There’s confusion over the timing of TODAY’S show. It’s 3pm. EASTERN Not 10pm, that’s an old time…….

Much thanks to a listener who pointed out that I had put 10pm on there. This is due to a glitch in Blog Talk Radio. What happens is that the interface gives me a false error message (grrr) and then, forces me to refresh the page and then, redo the description. I have notified their techies of this false error message…..Either way it inconveniences me. I ended up copying and pasting the wrong broadcast time on there. I just didn’t see that I had done that. Grrrrrr……

And MANY THANKS to my pal to told me this. Good pals are priceless.



Updated description of today’s radio show

Open lines! Call in! 3pm eastern 323-443-7210. Press 1 or *1 to speak to the host.

This show focuses on issues to do with the psychiatric survivor movement, also called the Patients Liberation Movement.

References. These two books by Otto Wahl can be found in your public library. Although Wahl most sickeningly repeats over and over the mental illness model, his points about discrimination are well taken. These are Amazon links. The titles are Media Madness and Telling is Risky Business.

I’ll also be using a paper I wrote in 2002 on the subject of discrimination and the media. With a chuckle over “mental illness.”

See you on air!


Huge assumption on the part of Marc and Angel….AGAIN

I didn’t want to read their crap but since I enlarge the text, I didn’t see the full headline. So I had to click on the darned thing.

“One Reason Your Life Is Way Harder Than It Has To Be”

Really? That’s a huge assumption! My life got a lot easier, and gets easier all the time because I got imposed SUPERVISION out of my life. I didn’t need to be treated like kindergarten. I didn’t need to “consult.” I didn’t need to see someone in an office regularly. I didn’t need the “help” of a paid “professional.’ This is what it means to be an ADULT.

Yes, a human adult who thinks for herself. I ditched the supervision I never needed and am better off now, much happier, much healthier, and would recommend this for anyone.

By the way, this means YOU DO YOUR LAUNDRY.

Now, Marc and Angel claim “busyness” is what makes life soooo hard. Really? Boy what an assumption. I love being “busy.” I love having a full schedule. I love it when the phone rings because it means I’m loved. I love it when I have a radio show coming up. I love it when I have a leadership role at my Toastmasters club to fill. Next week I’m going to chair a contest, and also I am competing in another contest. The contest I am chairing is called Table Topics. The contest I am competing in is the Humorous Speech Contest. If I win, I will go on to compete at a higher level.

Am I plagued with being too busy? No, I love my life now because other people value me for my skills and talents. I love being in demand. Five years ago, NO ONE did. I wasn’t wanted anywhere. I was told NOT TO COME even if I offered. Even if I begged to be included. That was HORRIBLE, the worst thing ever. I would not wish what I went though on anyone. I literally got uninvited to events. Don’t let yourself get into that position.

For me, life is only getting better. Please do not give up uope. If I could, I would hand what I have found to all of you.

Mostly the problem was social. And being able to find friends who were affirmative, friends who didn’t push me away, friends who were not afraid of me, friends who didn’t see anger as a disease, friends who had been through the same things I had. Friends who said those three precious words, “I believe you.” And from there, wonderful things can happen.

Find the others. Find those that believe you, and believe in you.

Note about web access to Blog Talk Radio

You can access Blog Talk Radio via the web but accessing it that way you cannot participate in the show. It is listen-only that way. If you wish to speak to the host, CALL IN using a phone. That I know of you can even use a Magic Jack or Google Voice to call in and you will not be charged. Most cellular carriers will also connect, and international callers will pay whatever you usual rate is. I do not have an 800 toll-free number. My number is permanent, 323-443-7210. However, you have to press 1 (0r *1 on some phones) which is a toggle to unmute or mute your mic onto the show. Please keep your microphone muted via your device’s mute functionunless¬† you’re speaking (or I will mute you if I hear stuff like dogs barking, feedback, etc).

The shows vary in length, time of day, and I’m trying to get them on as often as possible and also am trying to schedule them in advance and let you know as soon as I think them up!

Call-in show tomorrow: Subject: Discrimination 3pm Eastern Sunday 8/20/17

Here is the link to the show!

Call 323-443-7210

Incidentally I am enjoying preparing a humor piece I am going to be performing that involves getting into costume. I hope to snap some photos of myself! I am not going to be doing a live taping of the performance, however I’ll do a re-run and broadcast it on the radio! The topic is somewhat antipsych relevant. So stay tuned for a dose of laughs because you have a terrible disease, meaning you will have to listen to jokes and crack up laughing regularly from now on. Too bad! tee hee hee.
