Voices

Absolutely fascinating article in the NY Times about those who hear voices and the new reframing being done in order to avoid a diagnosis of schizophrenia in such circumstances, which can result in treatment that is often more damaging than the original voices. I've occasionally wondered (usually spurned by a movie portrayal) what it must be like to be in a situation where you hear voices that you have absolutely no control over and that no one else can hear. I think it would be terrifying, but the people interviewed in the article take a very different, and seemingly therapeutic approach to the experience.

I read that too. The more I learn about psychology, the more I become a Szaszian -- there is way too much overpathologization of normal behavior.
