Farewell to my friend

I did something very normal and usual last night--for most people. I went to a farewell party of a close friend. I was out from 7 pm to 11 pm. I had two and a half beers. I had fun. A lot of fun. Healthy good fun, right? Then why, on the walk back to... Continue Reading →

Yuck, this is reminiscent of my days on med trials

As I mentioned a week ago today I started treating various imbalances that were detected with blood work, that my nutritional/orthomolecular psychiatrist recommended. One of the treatments, she cautioned, I might not tolerate, as it sometime can aggravate one sensitive to mania. While I am by no means manic, I've now had several terribly uncomfortable...

Psychiatrists raking it in

From the New York Times: WASHINGTON, June 26 — As states begin to require that drug companies disclose their payments to doctors for lectures and other services, a pattern has emerged: psychiatrists earn more money from drug makers than doctors in any other specialty. Read the whole article here.

The continuing series on my mental health providers

Yesterday I saw my psychotherapist. I had a lot to share--heavy stuff that had just come up for me the last few days. Memories of things I felt shame and pain about. The day before they had weighed me down and made me feel quite miserable. Yesterday, instead, I was filled with high energy and... Continue Reading →

Flower essences used for mental health

The mere suggestion that flower essences could be powerful enough to help with serious mental disturbances would have made me laugh in the face of anyone suggesting such a thing just a year ago. I've found since then that many people use them quite successfully for everything from mild anxiety to angry, psychotic states. I've... Continue Reading →

My other psychiatrist

I don't know if it's clear or not that I have two psychiatrists. The one that's a four hour drive from here who I wrote about the other day. She is orthomolecular and treats by natural means. Strangely enough her manner is that of a typical un-empathetic, arrogant traditional psychiatrist. She was not willing to... Continue Reading →

The new psychiatrist

I've mentioned my new psychiatrist, the orthomolecular one. While I'm quite optimistic with what orthomolecular can do, having had email correspondence with many people who have used it successfully and I too having pulled together a plan on my own that has helped matters a lot, I'm still skeptical about the doctor I've found. Finding... Continue Reading →


Update 2013. The below post is from 2007. I've since healed (functionally cured) my endometriosis: Endometriosis? Mine responded to natural care. Here I email the MD who mocked me when I refused her “care” In the process of discovering how contrary to well-being psychiatry is, I've uncovered massive amounts of dirt on all western medicine. I now... Continue Reading →

Rate your site

  Ha! In spite of feeling worthless, I've just had some fun! CL Psych turned me on to a site that rates your blog ala movies style. G, PG, PG-13, etc. I'm rated NC-17! That was no real surprise, but they missed all the "F" words I've used so in that case it makes no... Continue Reading →

I don’t want to be here right now

I have that overwhelming desire to just not be feeling what I'm feeling right now. This feeling has no content. I'm not thinking anything. I'm not actually even thinking "I want to die." But its the feeling I have had in the past that I usually associate with the thought "I want to die." It... Continue Reading →
