I began to blog as a way organize the story of my life into a coherent narrative as part of my psychotherapy. The therapeutic process is slow and painful and I find that I have to spend two minutes recovering for every minute I spend working. As my blog has evolved I’ve developed an interest in advocating for the right of all citizens with mental illnesses to healthcare and housing.
The government made a promise to fund alternatives to the State Hospitals when it closed them.
We have lived with the degrading consequences of that broken promise for over a generation.
It should outrage every U.S. citizen to see the mentally ill brutalized by the pauperism, needless suffering and the neglect that we through our government promised to prevent when we voted to close the State Hospitals
