Mental Illness of Faith

If I tell a psychiatrist that demons are plotting against me, I'm a delusional paranoid. But if I tell a radio audience that demons are plotting against me, I might be just another evangelical preacher.


  1. Well said,i applaud your blog, mental health consumers are the least capable of self advocacy,my doctors made me take zyprexa for 4 years which was ineffective for my symptoms.I now have a victims support page against Eli Lilly for it's Zyprexa product causing my diabetes.--Daniel Haszard

  2. Danny, thanks for the comment. I browsed your site. I grew up with a JW friend. He endured social ostracizing (in public school). I remember he, though scholarly, had no interest in college (too worldly, tainted) and planned to go into the family biz instead. I always thought it was a waste of a good brain.
