I need to find out if there’s a Da Vinci Code for psychiatry. When I was ten years old I was overmedicated almost to the point of death. All my life I’ve been on Social Security, all my life I’ve been doing or trying to do the right thing.
Why do the righteous people struggle? Why do we lose faith? I’ve survived my past. I was abused by my aunt when I was a young boy and I’ve been accused of things that I did not do. I was locked in the basement, hit and beaten. Since I was a kid I’ve been placed in every type of living situation except a nursing home.
Now I’m 43 years old and my SSI payment just got cut down. Do I drink? No. Do I do drugs? NO. There are people out there that take advantage of the system, people who are lazy. Me on the other hand I’ve done a lot of jobs on the side because government benefits aren’t enough to live on.
I don’t make excuses. All my life, every psychiatrist and therapist and case worker I’ve had, they always said I needed medication. Well, here’s a kiss-my-ass to them, because I’ve had so much medication forced on me that now my body has become immune to it. What can a therapist say to me? All they do is push pills at people, to mess up their minds even more. And I know I’m more educated than them, because they learned from the pages of books, and I learned from life itself.
I’m slow, I’ll admit that, and I have a tiny attention span. Anything to do with computers is not easy for me. I’ve tried to learn a few times but I couldn’t get it. I would like to work and not rely on benefits but I have no real work experience and all the jobs you have to apply for online, which I don’t know how to do.
