Restless night. I sat up a little while after waking at about 2:30, read. My mind is full of things. Terms from Toxic Psychiatry went through my head, along with thoughts about the IRS and other things I need to deal with. I resolved to write these personal issues on a list so that they would at least be in writing and not floating ominously in my head. The first step...admit the problem...

I am thinking a lot about the book and how I might write about it. I will write about it in here, of course, possibly in the readingroom as well, and maybe I'll do a piece on my newer website. Not only that book, but Mad in America and Prozac Backlash and any others I find along the way that deal with psychiatric drugs. I don't know how to reach the persons I love and care about who have been told by their doctors not only that these drugs are safe but that they should be taking them for long periods. I believe many doctors believe the misleading claims of the drug makers and in the journals and do not pursue any doubts they may have themselves. Or question and review the actual studies. Too many doctors don't have the time to do the research that would scare the hell out of them if they did.
