> Some people think everyone of us is bad news. When the truth is that the majority are not bothering anyone. Unfortunately, only the ones who do b*llsh*t are remembered. It is worse here than in the US. In the US, you can talk about it, and you are not automatically considered dangerous if you do.

Yes. <sad>

I had the courage to inflict the truth on people because I was so good at it. My mind was too slow to play video games, but I could talk some sh*t...

It was my second most immediate goal (second only to remission of depression) to educate and destigmatize. Why would I allow anyone to think of ME as having a broken and functionless psyche? Why would I allow people to think that I was weird?

I was able to change my environment one person at a time. I changed quite a few minds. I saw that sufferers and their peers both needed information and understanding. The psyches of sufferers become warped and unhealthy as a result of the alteration in brain function - an altered state of consciousness. Intrusive thoughts coming out of nowhere are particularly difficult to guard against. Chronically abnormal brain biology damages the psyche. This in turn reinforces and makes worse the pathology of affective disorders by introducing more and more depressive pressure (stress). If left untreated, this positive-feedback loop assaults the brain with increasing severity and can end up in treatment-resistace.

Would psychotherapy alone break the positive feedback loop cycle?

Absolutely. It can.

How often will psychotherapy alone break through the most severe of properly diagnosed Major Depressive Disorder which includes psychomotor retardation and the deficit syndrome?

Almost never.

Education.

I hope that people read this.
