Here's a recap of blog posts and other news from the past month.
A recent RxISK blog post on
Withdrawal and PSSD
seems to have touched a nerve. It raises questions about how to handle difficult states whose very existence is denied by most of healthcare. What is the role of those affected and the role for the rest of us in finding answers for them? And what would an answer look like? Would it be a drug to put an abnormality right? Would it be a state of acceptance?
This blog thread will continue over the next few weeks, and we welcome all input.
there is a series of Boomerang posts that also defy ready categorization and might induce despair if you read them in the wrong frame of mind. The efforts of almost everyone who tries to do some good seem to end up making the situation worse. Is there a way to intervene that doesn't cause more problems?
Thank you for your support.
Your feedback, as always, is greatly appreciated.
