I’ve scoured the interwebs and continue to come up empty. Suffice to say that the US is a predatory, brutal place with a societal culture that promotes predation. As someone who was committed to patient advocacy, and yet failing miserably when I needed and sought help, I don’t want to lead others on a wild goose chase predicated on false hope and foolish optimism. Those lead to betrayal, failure and more suffering.
That, in all of this medical mecca town, not a single psychiatrist, psychologist, psychiatric social worker or academic program offers any effective care and treatment to reduce unbearable psychological distress, nor is interested in doing so, speaks for itself.
That no one is interested on this blog or any other in discussing approaches or treatment alternatives sends a clear message.
Only I can find a place on the interwebs where no one else resides and Google turns up no results. WordPress putting all of my blog posts and comments on other WP blogs into spam was also a large factor in stopping.
In how many ways can one be ostracized? I’ve lost count. But I also just don’t give a damn anymore. They’ve got me where they want me – disappeared so as not to ugly up the place.
For the all one person (annalaw, that would be you) who read and commented, I am very grateful and appreciative. I wish you the best in your quest for minimally acceptable care.
The reading list will remain in its messy, disorganized place.
And I will remain in this living hell until I can get myself euthanized and catch up to the social death.
