I know a bit better how to deal with her behaviour but I'm almost retirement age and the world still revolves around her.

    Another chemical castration interview I did with another service user

    He is Shaun 32 from England but he was 22 at the time. It is a transcripted interview. The very same psychiatric drugs that are given to the 'mentally ill' are given to chemically castrate sex offenders.

    Even with the world at their feet they get depressed

    How do you rationalize your depression? Do you connect real world passed events, or your current circumstances or do you rationalize it like me? I get bouts of depression when nothing material or social has changed in my life. I just view it as the chemical balance in my mind that I have no...

    The Chemical Imbalance Theory: Still Being Promoted

    The Chemical Imbalance Theory: The fact is that there are no psychiatric drugs that normalize brain neurotransmitter function. Indeed, the opposite is the case. Every psychiatric drug on the market today produces abnormal brain function. So either Drs. Williams and Landa aren’t aware of...
