Just a Writer

Having finished a first draft of something that I feel could be published, I feel I can now announce myself to be a writer. But as an unpublished, first stage kind of the thing, I am not an author, Just a Writer.

Sun

  • To move in a circle against the motion of the Sun (counter-clockwise) will invite the powers of darkness into your life.
  • If you sweep dust in the direction of the Sun you are destined to never be wed.
  • The Greeks regarded the sun as an all-seeing eye,…

Want Real Information About Psychiatric Drugs? Visit CrazyMeds

aka14kgold:

nomorepuzzleprofits:

Welcome to Crazymeds, where you can learn what’s good, what’s bad, what’s interesting, and what’s plain weird and funny about the medications used to treat depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, epilepsy, migraines, anxiety, neuropathic pain, or whatever psychiatric and/or neurological condition you might have. The information on this site is to help you work with your doctor(s) to find the right treatment options. Too many of us get nothing more than 15-minute appointments with overworked doctors or nurse-practitioners, so we need all the help we can get. We need to talk to our prescribers about the best medication1 to treat our conditions, and not the most profitable ones, or the cheapest ones2.

OK, in reality “best” usually translates to “least bad.” If you know the name of the medication(s) you’re looking for, you’ll probably want our list of drugs by names and class/category. There’s also our much larger list of all the meds we know about to treat various conditions, including all the brand/trade names we can find for every med in every country in which each is available. We also have the drugs sorted into broad categories with lots of overlapping memberships:

Crazymeds is the site for the obsessed and depressed, the manic and the panicked, the schizophrenic and epileptic, the migraineurs and bipolar, those with GAD, SAD, OCD, PTSD, in pain or have an otherwise non-standard brain4. If you have any specific questions about a drug that wasn’t answered on its page, couldn’t find the drug you’re interested in, or want some help in figuring out which medication is the right one for you, then visit Crazy Talk: Our forum for the mentally interesting. We aren’t doctors or anything, and we don’t diagnose, but we have more experience than we ever wanted when it comes to brain cooties and the crazy meds used to treat them. We’re all about helping each other know what the drugs can and cannot do, what they are likely to do for us and to us, and work with our doctors to make the best, or least bad, choice in medication(s) as quickly as possible.

For real, CrazyMeds is one of the most helpful plain-english information sites regarding psychiatric / neurological drugs and what exactly they DO to your brain. If you’ve ever felt like a human lab experiment just being handed one prescription after another, CrazyMeds can help you understand what effects the drugs have and how they work. The site also discusses realistic side-effects such as the ever-present “head zaps” of SSRIs and others that doctors keep saying we make up for attention.

Also it’s fun to read if you’re a writer and just want to learn about drugs with long names and what they do.

Reblogging to promote CrazyMeds. I’ve found it incredibly helpful.

And for anyone who might be inclined to get all OH NOES SELF DIAGNOSIS!!1!1!, my neurologist—who is a bit of a bigwig in the field, straight-up brilliant, and one of the best doctors I could ever hope for—regularly refers patients to CrazyMeds when they’re dealing with new conditions and drugs and side effects and the like.
