One example of the problems

Posted on March 2nd, 2017

Anyone can be stigmatized for anything, for psychiatrists to claim to be victims is absurd; they’re not any better than their patients. The staff are desensitized to the point of sociopathy, psychopathy, etc. The doctors prescribe medications to themselves and abuse them. The discrimination against people with mental disorders is ridiculous for many reasons. Everything is a symptom according to the staff who abuse drugs, preach sobriety, and laugh at their victims. Medications are drugs, coercing people to use drugs is among the worst of the cruelty. By their own standards in the Diagnostics and Statistics Manual, the most of the staff are mentally ill. Their bias against medications they don’t prescribe is the epitome of contradiction. The staff boast of their credentials and experience that has caused their own neurosis and psychosis. Drugs contraindicate other drugs, causing disease and even death. While claiming trauma informed care, they worsen the symptoms. Psychiatry traumatizes its patients, constantly reminded of past trauma. The unsanitary conditions also don’t help. The many staff hate medicinal cannabis, claiming that its users are lazy, apathetic, paranoid, etc. At the same time, benzodiapines are causing seizures and violence. The symptoms of disorders combined with side effects of medications are blamed on herb, and so on. Shock treatment causes brain damage, with or without decreasing the pain. Memory can be erased by convulsions and pharmacueticals, depression is a side effect of anti-depressants, and the blame is always shifted elsewhere.

Balkunas degrades his victims because of his own insecurities. Like all bullies, the doctor is ashamed of himself. He pushes deadly poisons that he claims are '' medicine ''. Those poisons ruin lives. Balkunas despises real medicine.
