Shitty mental health system

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 9:02 AM

Most of the medications they've given me don’t work, and most of their other treatments like CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) don’t work either, and I think that's mostly because I was misdiagnosed. All that most of the medications do to me is make me stupid or sedate me—other than that, no benefits. The doctors even agree with me, but then continue giving me the meds that don’t do anything. It makes no sense. They refuse to reassess my diagnosis. To make matters worse, pretty much all of them refuse to taper me off the medications I don’t want to take, so I get horrible withdrawals. Any kind of problems with my mental health that I ask for help for, they refuse to deal with. Their OTs or whatever they're called mostly fixate on my diagnosis and anything about anxiety/social skills problems go in one ear and out the other it seems.

Churches passing the buck

Posted on Mon, Dec 7, 2015 at 11:24 AM

HRM city council has asked for a report from staff re: taking over the maintenance of five cemeteries since their associated churches have closed and been torn down. Why should the city bear the cost for this? I assume the churches received money for the burials in the first place. The church still exists as an institution, even if that particular branch is closed. Let them pay for it. Does the city pay to clean up the contaminated soil of every lot that used to house a gas station? At least the gas stations payed fucking taxes. — Tired of paying for your hobby
