Today I stumbled on a blog called “Borderline Families” and read of one woman’s heartfelt confession of her deconversion story from her former faith in the biopsychiatric model of mental illness and their chemical treatments for it.
Parts of it moved me to tears. I frequently identified with Kristin’s daughter, who is the focus of much of her posts. I missed this eloquent and beautifully written blog when it started up in April and I apparently just missed its last post at the end of November. I highly recommend reading Kristin’s story while it is still up which she sums up as a saga covering these posts.
Part One A Charade
The Final Post
I have to say, there is a part of me that is a little jealous at how much unconditional love Kris has for her daughter. As a teenager I went through some of the same things as Kris’s daughter but I faced the institutions and residential facilities, as well as the doctors, without that kind of support.
