    I've been a user of psychedelic substance for several years now and I've seen a few adverse reactions to psychedelics but it's usually because one is at conflict with something inside there have been many studies on psychedelics and mental illness and to my knowledge all credible studies revealed the same thing and that is psychedelics do by no means cause mental illness but they do have a way of triggering illnesses in people who have a predisposition to develop the mental illness later in life

    Psychedelics aren't bad because they make you break your thinker,
    but because they make you USE your thinker.

    Every section of your brain connecting in ways they did not previously, literally.

    It's not productive for those in control to have you thinking!

    What a waste of time THAT would be. ; D

    People are worried about LSD and Boomers ruining your mental health,

    while they go to McDonalds to get a McDouble and fries.

    i completely disagree that psychedelics can't possibly cause mental illness

    what the hell is that supposed to mean? lol

    Maybe he meant, humans are worried about drugs causing them harm, while the clog their arteries with shit from a fast food restaurant.

    Sure, it COULD be fair to say that there is always a CHANCE that psychedelics can cause you harm.
    But we know an unhealthy diet can be fatal. But that is certainly LEGAL.

    Just a guess, I guess.

    absolutely right, and fast food is terrible for you. The amount of preservatives and extenders they put in that stuff is alarming! Have you seen the video of the McD's happy meal in a box that looked exactly like it did fresh...TWO YEARS LATER??? NOT kidding!

    As others have pointed out, there is no mental illness really. Some of the the individuals that are looked at as crazy, were in fact the most sane out of all of us. Apparently especially as of late, the more and more you seem to want to think outside of the box whether on a drug or drunk, the more you're looked at as someone with a mental illness and quite frankly, that's just not the case. Thanks for sharing and although this is an old thread, it's most definitely an interesting read non-the-less.

    Sanity is an illusion. A lie. We are all both crazy, and not crazy. The human mind is deep, even the shallow ones.
    It is not as black and white, as it seems to be.

    Do you prefer the subbed or the dubbed version of One Piece? I prefer the subbed.

    CaesarClown Member

    I prefer the subbed, hits the comedic notes better, and comes off with less of a "child-like" feel.

    Wanna know what really grinds my gears? Folks go to school, read books, then graduate with the sense that they have things "understood" not the case.....regardless of psy or primary care your schooling is only 1/3 of what will make you a good physician/ clinician. Throwing pills at a misunderstood mental situation is NOT HEALING its masking, covering up.

    Back in the sixties and seventies, there was this romantic notion of mental illness. "who's to say what crazy is, we are all crazy". But what they were really referring to was people on the spectrum of personality quirks or even neurosis.

    Those that have been exposed to very sick people never keep their "crazy is fine" romance. With the advent of popularly used hallucinogenic compounds, people began to imagine their state of consciousness as somehow akin to psychosis. They figured that they had been inside the mind of, or actually been a psychotic.

    Myth and legend didn't help.

    But the reality is that these chemicals did more easily allow someone to imagine the horror of mental illness. Mental illness is a horror, it is often a definiting difference between sanity and otherwise. Spend any amount of time with truly Ill people and come away thinking you had just been given a reprieve from hell itself.

    Imagine NEVER ever being able to depend upon your senses to know what is real and further, being uncertain of your social. Powers. "what did he mean when he said that" takes on a hideous meaning for the truly disturbed. Not knowing which "voice" in your. Head is "you" or mistaking social cues constantly while still having huge ranges of inappropriate emotions is my idea of torture.

    But so often, that is the only thing a doctor can do. "therapy" in the traditional sense cannot treat the mentally ill"

    VTMi'kmaq Well-Known Member

    Nor can haldol injections

    canndo Well-Known Member

    No, no cure in that, or send of the more powerful drugs that turn patients into drooling shambling wrecks. People say some drugs are just silent electro shock treatments.

    But I suppose it is better than keeping them tied up in the basement of a "clinic".
