Are you there Agent? It's me, Mother.

I know this excuse is getting old, fast, but the reason why I'm merely passing on information these days is because I continue to work on edits on Holistic Recovery from Schizophrenia: A Mother and Son Journey. It's been exactly three months since I sent the book proposal to the agent.

In the meantime, I blog, I edit, I Twitter, but I'd prefer some solid evidence from an agent that my memoir has a universal appeal.

ABILIFY = DISABILIFY Thanks to Bristol Myers Squibb for a "wonder drug" that may only be better than a placebo.

Are Psychiatric Medications Making Us Sicker? Read yet another article on this subject here.

Louise Gillett recounts her reaction when she went to a Rethink meeting recently in London.She raises some interesting questions about how independent these organizations really are, and how little objection was raised during the meeting to the medications. But I have the feeling that a lot of sufferers and their families are accepting the label and the medication because they come with the safety net of the benefits.
