What’s barbaric in medicine?

Late one evening, I received a text from my oldest daughter. “What in medicine, that we do now, will we think is barbaric in 50 years?” Wow. They play more provocative bar games now than they played when I was in my 20s. I promptly texted back my knee-jerk response: “chemotherapy.” As we are on […] Find jobs at Careers by Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now. Learn more.

A tale about the inside: violent human rights violations from a typical stay in an American psych ward

Editor’s note (Monica Cassani):  oddly enough, I too had a brief stay in Ridgeview 15 years ago in which much the same abuse played out. I also entered voluntarily and 5 hours later I asked to leave and they wouldn’t let me go at which point it became a forced incarceration, just like it did for Chris. […]

Why Therapy Didn’t Work for Me

When I was 16 years old, I had a metabolism that was to die for. I could eat anything I wanted, whenever I wanted to, and was always hungry, which led to developing an undesirable habit of snacking at 3 a.m. My parents saw the litter of dishes and snack wrappers in my room that I had been too lazy and tired to clean up before crashing back into bed and wrongfully concluded that I was closet bingeing. Coupled with my string bean frame, they were concerned enough to book an appointment with a th...

Why Do I Lack Empathy/Compassion?

I notice that I have a real issue genuinely feeling for others. A coworker tells me she has to go somewhere for her cancer and I fake compassion, but I don’t think I actually care. Another coworker has someone dying in the hospital, all day she complains about being tired, and all I wanna do is tell her that nobody cares about her problems and to shut up. I feel in the workplace that you shouldn’t discuss personal issues and complain so much about them because you’re there for work. When i see a...

yahoo lifestyle interviewed me in April 2018 — the article is up today… (In recovery — from antidepressants)

I did emphasize the fact that all psych meds have withdrawal issues. Unfortunately this article, like most that hit the mainstream don't do much to acknowledge that reality. Still, it's always good to see coverage of this sort out there.  Laura Delano and Kelly Brogan are also quoted. Yay, us. We've all been at this for a long time and it's good to see our work being recognized.

Jerry Falwell is Wrong About the Poor

There are several head scratching quotes from Jerry Falwell, Jr. in his New Year’s Day interview with Joe Heims in the Washington Post. One such quote which caught my eye is this: Why have Americans been able to do more to help people in need around the world than any other country in history? It’s because of free enterprise, freedom, ingenuity, entrepreneurism and wealth. A poor person never gave anyone a job. A poor person never gave anybody charity, not of any real volume. It’s just common se...
