The chemical-imbalance theory of depression — the idea that depression was caused by too little serotonin or some other such neurotransmitter within a neurosynapse sounded scientific but legitimate science rejected this notion by the 1980s. Drug companies knew this, and so too did any psychiatrist who took the time to look at the research. But we still hear about this “chemical imbalance theory” on TV drug commercials and from establishment psychiatrists. “Pseudoscientific” is a polite terms for the use of scientific-sounding language to promote unscientific realities. Less polite would be “bullshit” or “lies.” And the director of the National Institute of Mental Health now is stating, DSM, psychiatry’s diagnostic bible, lacks scientific validity. Again, this is a polite way of saying the DSM is pseudoscientific bullshit.
I know to most big bloggers 50 is nothing, but after 4 years or so it feels good to hit a milestone. Thanks everyone. :)
Some irresistibly cute things I found here. Facebook ads are worthwhile sometimes, evidently.
Anonymous asked: oh yeah, you totally ask dirty berd that question. i'm not even trying to be mean, just mentioning that you ruined you anonymity
You think I asked her that and then reblogged it? If so, why would I have said “rock on, anon”? Wouldn’t that be complimenting myself? I suppose the writing style was rather similar, so I could see how you would think that. I didn’t submit that ask, although you may believe whatever you like. I don’t care about her or her blog near enough to want to submit anything.
