Both he and his sister believe in the views of Mad in America - Science, Psychiatry and Social Justice. They believe that I currently need psych drugs only because my body became dependent on them because the original prescription put my brain "out of balance". So he is very leery of being treated by any mental health professional.



The thing is, the fact that he wants to "fix" all of us is a symptom of his problem. Having anxiety/wanting to control things that he cannot control rather than letting it be and just concentrating on his own life.


Thatís the way things seem to be these days. Everybody else needs to be fixed rather than the individual. I can say I spent many years with the same attitude and eventually it all came to bite me really hard on the butt. Life has a way of doing that. I hope things are getting a bit better at least.
