On Ex Mental health betterment

This post was submitted by a reader.Despite a long debated idea about the abolishment of psychiatry and the futuristic dream for the once known mentally ill and ex mental health population of America and elsewhere, has left me dazed and confused about a lot of things.

As Ex mental health patient culture to me wasn’t very helpful, I was expecting more of a professional environment, ready to help you start your career, open up flexible opportunities to make money by business networking, etc, and become a happy, successful individual and not a slave to the sadistic culture known as psychiatry.

However, it only lead to older people resorting to preferred victimhood, nagging old hags who’s phony, fake, and disingenuous ways just were unhelpful, and the simple mindset of all hat and no cattle when it comes to a “better life for the mentally ill” just seems to never come into fruition.

I’ve come to realize the ex mental health culture is all hat no cattle. Scapegoating and playing the effeminate role of “The victim being held by the metaphorical chain of the psychiatric massa” seems to be favorable by subconscious decisions made by ex mental health patients. The group think that ex mental health patients like to believe the culture of the sane will always treat us like crap, so we should always see an apocalyptic outlook of our destiny as ex mental health patients, forever the victims of a “Sane dominated society”.

You can try to question or be a skeptic to the claims that ex mental health patient culture, and alternative medicinal culture, tend to make, and you will be bombarded with ad hominem attacks or be told “How dare you question that theory, are you sure your not a spy for big pharma?”

It’s going to be hard for the ex mental health patient community to stop playing the victim and scapegoat psychiatry, hoping militaristic violence will solve our problems within the psychiatric and sane culture, when it will only enforce the wounds we still will be nursing, being left in the state of confusion about our own sufferings, and even worse, will be searching for another victim we can exploit for our cause of the smug “I told you he/she understood what actual suffering is” or a scapegoat we can taunt and harass until they submit into our actually abusive tactics on how they forever will live a life full of misery until departure from hell.

We as ex mental health patients need to start opening up to start our own businesses, plan our own fundings from private organizations we agree with on most things, develop good relationships with vendors, merchants, etc. So we can become financially independent individuals.  Instead rely on the constant victimization, endless hopefulness of the “psychiatrist to change”, when he/she never will, because they are narcissists, and you cannot change their way of thinking, and revengeful venting on relying on coercive militaristic force to abolish psychiatry altogether.

The only thing that holds us back is the mindset of the “people pleaser syndrome” most ex mental health patients have subconsciously.  Nobody wants to be incarcerated when you did not commit the crime in the first place, be subjected to cruel or unusual punishment, or be permanent damaged by drugs or therapies. But when you live your life in deep embedded fear, worrying an event like Selma will happen if the ex mental health patients protest against psychiatry again, or any form of brutal public humiliation, I’m sorry, your actually failing yourself and others you blindly state “you care about” when in reality, you really don’t, just stating that to make yourself look like a wonderful person.

Instead of playing the victim and hoping a narcissist will change, let’s focus on building a culture of self employed business success stories instead of hopeless deadbeats being subjugated by sadistic psychiatric fetishes the demon doctors will keep attempting if we as a culture don’t develop a set of iron balls in the meantime.

I am an ex mental health patient, and I’m appalled by the half ass attempts ex mental health patient’s put into when it comes into outside opportunities when it comes to our financial and social independence. It seems acting like we care will abolish our painful memories of abuse, and comfortably play the victim until we get locked up as usual.

How much do y’all give a F*** about progressing the ex mental health culture and developing into a more privatized financial and social culture? Please give me an explanation on this.

Thank you.

    Here’s some ideas that might be helpful. Nearly 60 years ago in Australia a small group of people found themselves in exactly the same situation. Their resolve to pass on what worked for them evolved into GROW, a peer support and mutual help group now part of a world community.

    GROW in Australia http://www.grow.org.au

    GROW In America http://www.growinamerica.org

    Grow in New Zealand http://grow.org.nz

    I can explain this to you rather easily. People who have been victims of the mental health system have been put through something equivalent to torture and would be classified as human rights violations under any other circumstances.
    That damages a person. This a deep pain that in some case may never heal if the extent of the abuse was great enough. You are not being fair to these people. Many may not ever be able to return to a normal life again.

    On the other part though, I think it’s great that you want to move towards things that are productive. You can still do that and should. I still wanted this for many years. Survive this mental health holocaust if you can. I wish you all the best in that.

    I think you are being extremely harsh.

    These people’s problems are none the less incapacitating for their not corresponding to a visible pathological process. The human mind, the human spirit, call it what you want, abides by the same kind of laws governing the body, dictating that under a burden too great for its frail bulk to bear, it buckles. But everyone, as La Rochefoucauld rightly said, has the strength to bear his neighbor’s burden.

    Some mental patients simply lack motivation, which, as we know, the drugs can take a heavy toll on, not to mention life experiences, but one thing’s for sure; you cannot take credit for motivation, nor can you be blamed for the lack thereof.

    A man cannot summon up non-existent reserves of motivation; he cannot muster the motivation to do something ex nihilo.

    Just as in a balance, the lighter scale yields to the heavier, so a weaker motive, when weighed against a stronger, gives way thereto. The question is; why do some people not feel motivated to get a job, and whence comes the motivation to do so, and to participate in society, and so forth?

    Most people would answer, the freely made choices of the individual.

    I believe that the common assumption predicating freedom of the will, and the injustices and atrocities it brings inexorably in its train, would disappear, if our vanity did not cloud our judgement, if we were able, as we never will be able to do so, to situate ourselves at some kind of Olympian vantage point commanding a comprehensive view of the whole landscape of human experience, initiating us into the manifold mysteries of the human heart, enabling us to identify the countless links of the chain uniting in logical succession the events of our lives, so that every every thought, motive, feeling, and action could be traced to its origin.

    People cannot just lift themselves out of the mud in which they are mired. It is an error of attribution to blame men and women for falling short of our expectations, for their inability to fulfill the obligations and discharge the duties demanded of them, when it is not they who pave the almost infinitely diverse paths along which the lives of men and women proceed.

    The self-made man, the causa sui, is a myth; a self cannot create itself. To do so would require another self to create that self, and another self to create that self, and so on and so forth, resulting in an infinite regression.

    It is claimed that some people do indeed manage to pull themselves out of the swamp of adversity, which prejudgment forms the basis upon which invidious comparisons are drawn elevating those who were not too deeply sunk in the mud to get out, above those who are, whose great circumstantial misfortune is neither offset by the fortunate alignment of constitution and what would usually be considered adverse circumstances, conveying such recipients of fortune’s dispensations ad astra per aspera, such as happens with sports stars raised in the slums; nor subsequently offset by circumstances of a more fortunate cast, as is so often the case, for – though their victims are sometimes recompensed for their suffering, be it with a passport to to the stars or the more modest reparations life makes for the harms it perpetrates – hardships all too often produce seeds that burgeon into more of the same, for just like a man’s first arse rape opens up territory allowing for the better and smoother penetration of all the subsequent willies that might seek temporary accommodation therein, so the misfortunes of men are often found to clear the way for the subsequent visitation of more, for life is a but a gang-bang for some, their frail little bottoms shown no mercy as the misfortunes pile one, as the poundings that fall to the lot of every bottom proliferate to the point of prolapse!

    Obviously that shouldn’t be “a but a gangbang for some,” but simply “but a gangbang for some”
