We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
He seems like a thoughtful, literate, and kind person - and one of us Psychiatrists who is still willing to regard many human problems as problems of the soul and spirit rather than of "chemical imbalances."
I deeply disagree with his (and Dr. X's) apparent political views, but that's fine with me. Debate is good. Ars P posted a piece on Psychiatrists' coziness with drug companies. He may have a point, but I have never seen this sort of issue in Boston. Furthermore, in my view, Lexapro is manna from heaven for our patients. The guy appreciates Dylan, so he's OK in our book.
You say "...one of us Psychiatrists who is still willing to regard many human problems as problems of the soul and spirit..." but then follow with "Lexapro is manna from heaven for our patients"... that seems contradictory.
