brainzaps hybrid learning community
Are you ready to reclaim ownership of your mental and emotional life? Since Prozac first debuted in the 1980s, millions of Americans like myself have become unwitting prisoners of the pharmaceutical industry. Working with physicians and mental health practitioners, we are informed that the symptoms we are experiencing are the best we can hope for, given our diagnosis. Memory loss, confusion, weight gain, lack of motivation, word retrieval problems, disassociations, social and professional setbacks.
As part of their ongoing education, our caregivers almost unanonymously attend yearly compulsory training which is almost exclusively funded by the pharmaceutical companies. Even Stanford University, long considered one of the pioneers in the field of mental health research, conducts its seminars courtesy of BigPharma financial underwriting. The clinical trials upon which they base their research are flawed, manipulated and do not effectively reflect the real life experiences of individuals who are long term users of their medications.There is little funding currently for research detailing alternative treatments for major depressive disorders, PTSD, Alzheimer’s, or ADD.
Brainzaps announces the creation of a hybrid learning community to work towards finding solutions for our health challenges and provide each other the emotional, psychological and community support so desperately needed by those of us who live continuously within a mediated, manufatured reality.
- What’s really me and what’s the medication?
- Why can’t I interact normally in everyday life?
- What happened to my motivation?
- Why can’t I lose weight?
- What’s happened to my memory, alertness?
- Who can I trust? Who can ‘really’ help me?
Brainzaps first ‘boots on the ground’ meeting will take place on Thursday, September 11, at 7:00 PM.
