Which picture below shows an addiction scenario? …and why do people, in their millions, suddenly seek pharmaceutical solutions to the challenges of life? How is this generation so different from all those before?!

So, again, which picture shows an addiction scenario? Not the happy-looking people, we suppose, right? Don’t be deceived. Psychiatric drugs very often do not resolve the ‘condition’. Ask many people that experienced this themselves or that knew a family member on & off these drugs (like in my case). How well did it work? How was quality of life improved (or not)? Looking at the statistics alone tells us there is a massive problem … and we’re not addressing it in the right way. The book at the bottom of the page might be useful for more info (no, the author of this post doesn’t get sales commission). You can also see Dr Breggin’s site.

Grief could soon be a “disorder” according to the new version of the DSM. Great, now more people can get drugs for trying to deal with more things that it won’t help for. That way the poor drug companies can get more cash & we can employ lots more ‘professionals’ to give them business. Forgive my sarcasm. It’s a scam. Note how thin that first DSM in the photo is. Wonder why it ‘grew’ so much…?

When does a broken heart become a diagnosis? In a bitter skirmish over the definition of depression, a new report contends that a proposed change to the diagnosis would characterize grieving as a disorder and greatly increase the number of people treated for it.  The criteria for depression are being reviewed by the American Psychiatric Association, which is finishing work on the fifth edition of its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or D.S.M., the first since 1994. The manual is the standard reference for the field, shaping treatment and insurance decisions, and its revisions will affect the lives of millions of people for years to come.
