    Thought Broadcasting/Trump/Targeted Individual/Pzombies/Psychics/Theories

    Hey guys. I've been thought broadcasting for about 3 years, give or take a couple months. I just want it to stop. It's very clear that my thoughts are being transmitted and/or that my mind is being read by anyone who just happens to be psychic. And psychics are real, so let's start from that...

    Low so had to start AntiPs again

    I stopped the anti psychotics months ago and felt fine. But I am waking up regularly, throughout the night with shouts and angry voices. Its not just that thing when you are about to go to sleep, its the same voices back again. They continue for some time, so I tend to doze on the sofa, but...

    Legacies of ‘Anti-Psychiatry’ and R.D. Laing

    "In Lang's view, we treat people who experience themselves as robots, machinery, or animals as crazy, but we don’t find anything crazy in theories that treat people as robots or animals. Our theories of madness may be madder than the language spoken by those who are ‘mad’." VersoBooks.com

    Star trek voyager does mental illness....

    I was watching Voyager yesterday, and it was a really interesting episode which got me thinking (series 5 episode 7 'Infinite Regress')..... The plot was that the ship got close to some borg vinculum (processing thing from the middle of a borg ship), and, because the borg assimilates people...

    ....my meds....? Hmmmmm; I am in a strange limbo.... After all; what I see is that others perceive me as stable: does this mean it is time to leave my medication? I know this is a rather impossible (and probably over read) question. BUT, I am sure I am fine, I am sure there is nothing wrong...

    Schizophrenia as a "Disjunctive Category": Does it Matter?

    Among the commonly articulated criticisms of the concept of Schizophrenia is Don Bannister's claim from the late 1960s that the diagnosis is unfit for scientific research because it is a "disjunctive category". This point recently raised its head again in the comments section of an article about...

    Was Sigmund Freud a hypocrite and a Flawed character??

    In my opinion unequivocally-Yes he was. Unlike Jung most of his half-baked theories have been de-bunked. Apparently he was addicted to Cocaine so he wasn't in a fit state to diagnose let alone postulate theories. But the reason I object to him most was the profound effect his absurd in my...

    Evidence for Schizophrenia

    I've posted this before and received a reply by email but, not the best techophiliac, I can't fined my post, so at the risk of boring people, here goes again.
