One of my heroes, activist Linda Andre, is in Philadelphia this weekend in support of her excellent new book Doctors of Deception: What They Don’t Want You to Know About Shock Treatment. She’ll be appearing tomorrow. Info:

Personally I’d rather utilize any of our disposable income by donating to NARSAD. Fortunately Joyce’s attending physicians have always been forthright with us about her treatments including ECT so the sensationalist title of her book already put me off.

I guess I’ll just wait for a worn out copy or one to show up in the library to read the same old, same old.

I still observe that with the various treatment options available so many still suffer in pain and agony.

Maybe her next book will have a better title, in my opinion, and can tell us she found the answer and treatment to these horrific mood disorders.

You’ll be there too? Well, W.C. Fields was right, after all: I’d rather be in Philadelphia. {;>)

How’s the moving adjustment going, Liz? Better, I hope.

Don’t be put off by the title…it’s just the sorry truth.
