This is a real life story, from the moment of realization, of a middle aged man(Jarred J Brown)<that’s me! and his midlife crisis. The tale will be one of sadness, misery, suffering, and grief, evolving into an eye opening first hand look at the problems in Biomedicine and it’s treatment of mental illnesses. Illnesses like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Clinical Depression, Anxiety, and many more, which to this day have no cure. The “victims” of these syndromes are treated to a barrage of Biomeds created to treat only the symptoms, not heal the damage done first. The proverbial bandage on a broken arm. I hope you stay with me, ’cause I will be here for all of you. Whether you know it or not. (no, I did not say stalking, quit that!)
That’s my original “mission statement” of my blog. I reread it today and it holds true still today. The more I look into the subject of depression I can see that it’s very common now. There is also a common thread about prescription medication being ineffective or downright harmful, not to mention some can be addictive. It’s an epidemic that we won’t survive without finding more effective ways of helping each other.
On top of that, it seems like the USA has simple lost it’s mind. Proverbial of course, but the circumstances of each citizen seems perilous, by our definition. We have a president that enrages a portion of the populace. Pharmaceutical companies allowed to dole out drugs that are harmful. Insurance companies forcing costs up. A medical system that is profit based with obscene costs for the simplest of care. Corporations that make choices based on bottom lines, rather than the betterment of society.
That’s the common message delivered to us through internet media. A consistent barrage that we have to sift through so we can see the actual atrocities and push aside the blatant lies and misleading 1/2 truths.
Thanks for listening.
