To those who claim we rant

Someone on Twitter challenged Kelly Brogan MD and me about her article about SSRIs and depression yesterday. She said that she and I were “ranting.” I posted the text on Facebook too where the post received lots of comments.

I responded with these tweets:

and then I also tweeted:

If you, like me, and so many others need help in learning about the potential for harm in psychiatric drugs there are places to get information so that you might minimize harm in your lives.

I share my story and talk about alternatives because had I been given meaningful options when I was 19 years old rather than silenced with numerous neurotoxic drugs and dismissed, I could have been spared these decades of chronic illness. I will call the years I was deadened on drugs chronic illness too, because I certainly was not well.  I want to give the option for choice and the human right of choice to young people today. I want people to know that it’s possible to heal and be free of psychiatric drugs both. On this blog there are many stories about people who were told they’d need to be on psych drugs for the rest of their lives, but proved psychiatry sorely wrong.

All my work is now motivated by the fact that I’ve worked with and corresponded with thousands of people who have been gravely harmed by psychiatry. The denial of the great potential for harm in psychiatry must end. The harming of so many innocent and vulnerable people must end. I’m happy to keep helping people find other ways until no one is being harmed any longer.
