Tuesday, September 10, 2013  Undiagnosed Inmates are Already “Running the Asylums”  by Patricia Lefave Saved by the Psychiatric Faith and here to “testify” And the inmates running things are getting crazier all the time. This is an open letter to the Loons in charge. You are now SPECIFYING “Unspecified Mental Disorder” which goes along very nicely with Non Specific Schizophrenic Spectrum Disorder. That's CRAZY. Can you hear HOW I mean that? One cannot specify the unspecified. It's a…

Thursday, August 15, 2013  You MUST Be Crazy   You see with bio psych you are going to be crazy from the moment you enter their imperial  diagnostic realm. The fact that you are there, for any reason, means that you need to be given a diagnosis. The labelling takes only minutes. After that, you can agree that you are crazy or you can insist that you are not, but either way the fault will be found to be in you.  You can be a good, compliant kind of crazy OR the non compliant type, but EITHER…

Saturday, June 01, 2013  From the Jon Stewart Show  Gray hair has now been defined as an illness and medical science is searching for the cure. That is because we want everyone to have the opportunity to look like an utterly exhausted 28 year old....JS  Once this is accomplished, will anyone refusing treatment for GLD (Gray Locks disorder) be forced into psychiatric treatment for his or her own good? After all what SANE person would NOT want to be a perpetual blond, redhead or brunette? I am…

Thursday, June 13, 2013  Self Fulfilling Prophecies  by Patricia Lefave, monophrenic  Once who you “really are” has been suggested to others by an “authority” who cannot be questioned or blamed for anything, that is who you WILL be and all you can do is either “admit” it, or deny it. Of course, your “denial” in tautological style arguments, will only be “proof” that you are who the authority figure says you are; but you just won't “admit” to it...(right witch?) In fact, your resistance to…

Tuesday, May 07, 2013  Lose the Labels- End the Stigma  The containment of psychiatric labelling, the reductionism, the psycho-spiritual isolation, and the social pressure placed on those who are so labelled IS the “stigma” and it always has been. Being defined in this way changes the people defined and it also changes all the people around that one, who accept the definition and then make the person “fit” into it.  Even people who actually KNEW you BL (before labelling ) change the way they…
