Thank you for visiting my Blog.
I am passionate about right of full access to health care for people
with mental illnesses.
By full access I mean access to all treatment modes regardless of
the prevailing myth of resource scarcity.
I believe that sending people with mental illness to live on
the streets is a crime against humanity and hope that I
see it end in my lifetime.
I also write about my personal struggle to learn how to live
with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Many people mistakenly believe that Dissociative Identity
Disorder is rare or imaginary.
It’s not rare and even if it is imaginary those of us who
imagine it still have the symptoms and the pain.
I can’t think of anything more absurd than dismissing
an illness of the mind because it’s imaginary.
If you have DID or any other kind of illness I make my blog
a safe place for people to share their feelings.
Politically I am a conservative which means that I stand for
preserving the progressive values and traditions that
made the United States a leader in the fight for global human
The New Deal idea of equal access to resources that are essential to
preserving life and improving the mind is an idea worth saving.
I am a photographer and try to spend at least three days a week
shooting with my Canon.
I live in San Francisco, a city rich with light and color.
More themes will emerge in my blog over time.
I am trying to figure out how to sell my photography.
If you have any suggestions feel free to share. 🙂
Please feel free to leave a comment.
I do my best to keep up with the people in my network but my best is a bit slow.
I want to thank Andy Weisskoff, whose blog, 90 Day to Change, helped me to understand the
political aspect of my experience as a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
I greatly appreciate his decision to continue to advocate for mental health patients excluded from
the Behavioral Health Care system at Kaiser.
I believe that Kaiser reflects a larger institutional bias against people with chronic mental illnesses.
The sight of someone who is willing to stand up for what he believes brought hope into my life.
Thank you, Andy Weiskoff…:)
