The Scariest Person to Face is Ourselves

By |

Not much is as inspiring to me than when a person works to help themselves. Even more than when they try to help someone else.... to truly do the work and be there for themselves... to sort themselves out so that they aren't suffering... that to me is truly supreme. More than trying to help someone else... to help oneself is, I feel, the essential gift one can give to others around them. The scariest [...]

5 Signs That You’ve Been Psychiatrized

By |

Psychiatry, the DSM and psychiatric medications have become a dangerous cult. I'm a holistic psychiatrist and I’ve worked in psychiatry for over two decades.

I haven’t seen a doctor in 5 years and I’m healthier than I’ve ever been in my life. I didn’t realize it at the time, but all the medications I was taking weren’t keeping me well, they were keeping me sick. I have been diagnosed with so many conditions I can’t list them all here, but they include: endometriosis, ADHD, gastritis, bipolar disorder, neuropathy, anxiety, chronic pain, OCD and panic attacks.

Your Crazy is Your Superpower

By |

I’ve been called crazy since I was a young child. Many people have ridiculed and ostracized me for being and thinking differently. I’ve also been diagnosed with a variety of mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder. There were points in my life where I questioned and even hated my craziness. I felt the pressure to conform to societal expectations of normalcy and appropriate behavior. At the age of 43, I’m happy to say that I’ve finally [...]
