My view is we're souls/spiritual Beings, that make a pre life plan & come into incarnation with some degree of choice & planning within overall circumstances. So i'd have to make some kind of distinction between more human/earthly law/matters & what i'd see as certain spiritual realities.

But in essence what i said - whatever our circumstances/difficulties, imo we're fully accountable/responsible for our life & actions. In an ultimate sense, No, i don't believe in diminished responsibility in mental health - we stand in judgement on ourselves.

i know that doesn't wash with a lot of people, but it's the way i see it. But then i don't have a religious view of the after life either.

What's your opinion on it all?

Of mice & men was a good book that asks the same question.
Alot of people cpu with religious views would i'm sure have alot of respect for the sort of spiritual views you seem to espouse.

my opinion was my girlfriend responsible for attacking me? was another friend when he came off drugs? i don't know

One friend i invited him to this tibetan buddhisy centre, this women they'd been talking about the start of life and i'd asked about abortion, she said it's wonderful a man asks that question, anyway he outed me so to speak, this women had become they're volunteer coordinator and when i offered to help paint the new church her view was i was too disabled to paint she'd as women do gone totally the other way, one mind councilller said and your still friends with him
I'd get well shot of 'em Rambo.

You've got enough on your plate to deal with as it is.

I've got a former mate who's currently in a secure Unit.

He's diagnosed as having Schizoaffective but basically I think he's just a very institutionalised .

He told me by phone the last time I spoke to him that his biggest fear was that he could not cope outside of mental institutions.

I'd normally have sympathy but when he was in the local PICU he crossed the line and stabbed a bloke in the chest repeatedly and the bloke almost died.

In retrospect that could have been me or my ma so when He phoned me in late 2013 from the local bristol secure unit wanting to renew our frienship i had to decline.

I should add that he always in the community ended up attacking young groups of male youths after bingeing on amphetamines and crack.

Believe me Rambo your better off getting shot of them.

Surely no amount of sex is worth getting hurt over.

That said I haven't had sex for over 5 years and the last time i did it was with a lovely girl called Stacey whom I purchased from a private shop.

Three wide orifices for the price of two thats what the guy said in the shop.

Unfortunately I punctured her three days later when I was giving her one in the missionary position.

I still pine after her.............

i do think it's diminished responsibility and how would i like to be treated if i came off drugs, maybe it was because she was in a relationship with me and felt protected she came off

Theres a guy at the disability centre who talks about his girlfriend appparently they called her the madwomen of kilburn, he she was in tears about been forced drugs he supported her in coming off and she killed herself

I remember how she attacked me then said give me a cuddle, i realised that was the behaviour of a certain man in the past who abused her sometimes her voice would change into a mans voice

she's told me how she tried to leave this abusive man and the homeless hostels wouldn't have her because she was pregnant by him and she had to go back

Thank you so much for writing about the psychiatric drugs, and for posting a lot of great resources for people with Mental illness. I wish I had found this site and your posting some years ago. I would be more aware of how psychiatric drugs work, and I would probably be able to help my family members with mental problems better. Anyway, I found it now. This is awesome! Thanks.

If any of this material is a trigger for someone to want to stop medication (if they are already taking it); then please heed this WARNING -

Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision.
