Toxicity via the RX
A ” brother” who diagnosed based on ” martial difficulties ” and effects Xanax overdose prescribed for IBS
No test , no science just an authority- founder whose misdiagnosis was not questioned .
Describing then partner as “Supportive ” instead of abusive .
The law , then society adapted , a family destroyed , targeted for life by the abuser who of course is never responsible for anything . Considers himself the victim .
Totally correct system of no checks and no balances
The Bipolar Rollercoaster: Looking Beyond the Labels
By Rachel Townley
I am a family member of someone that has apparently been living with three “disorders” (autism, bipolar, and schizoaffective). Yet for those past three decades, they have gone through a variety of psychiatric interventions and treatment programmes but still have no more insight into their psychological distress than when they first became unwell.
Having a diagnostic label given to them by someone in a position of authority seems to have provided them with a reason for their experiences. Yet it does not explain how to deal with these experiences, nor does it help them to unpack the complex and traumatic history underpinning their suffering.
