Guest from the UK: PSSD Sexual Dysfunction from psych drugs!

The show will be tomorrow, Sunday Oct 22, at 6:30 pm New York Time.

To call in, dial 323-443-7210

It has been well-known that SSRI and other psych drugs cause sexual inhibition, but if you ask your doctor about this, he/she is likely to tell you “It’s a minor annoyance.” However, both men and women are reporting complete numbness and total inability to function sexually. Even worse, the condition, now called PSSD, is often permanent. Since this effect is so devastating and can be embarrassing to talk about, it is grossly underreported.

Daryl from the UK joins us tonight to discuss his own experience and the data he continues to collect. He has experienced retaliation as a whistle-blower also.

Listeners should be aware that we will not shy away nor skirt around this difficult topic. Rather, we will discuss the situation openly and frankly. Therefore, it may not be appropriate for children to hear. This is a tough, but vital issue.

You can find Daryl’s blog containing many interviews of people affected by this atrocity here!

An Evening with Paula Joan Caplan

This is the archived show.

Paula Joan Caplan, PhD, graduate cum laude from Harvard University. Her full biography can be found here. She has published and lectured extensively over a period of decades. Notably, she served on the DSM-IV Task Force for two years before resigning on moral and ethical grounds and then wrote an expose on the DSM process called They Say You’re Crazy: How the World’s Most Powerful Psychiatrists Decide Who’s Normal (1995) and later was first editor of Bias in Psychiatric Diagnosis. She currently is an Associate in the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard, as well as being Project Director of the Voices of Diversity Project about sexism and racism on college campuses. Tonight our focus will be on Dr. Caplan’s unique work with veterans and her multi-awardwinning film, “Is Anybody Listening?” which is about the danger in the chasms between veterans and nonveterans, and the unifying project she has created, “Listen to a Veteran.” The film and project grew from the work on her most recent book, When Johnny and Jane Come Marching Home: How All of Us Can Help Veterans (2011, 2016), We should be alarmed that the effects of war and rape trauma in the military and elsewhere are often labeled “PTSD” instead of deeply human reactions!

Wednesday, Sept 13 at 6:30: Pamela Spiro Wagner

Here’s the link:

Pamela Spiro Wagner graduated phi beta kappa from Brown University in 1975 then went to medical school before being hospitalized for psychiatric care. The diagnosis was schizophrenia for decades. Nevertheless, Wagner has won many awards for her writing.  Among her books is a popular memoir written with her twin sister, a psychiatrist, called, DIVIDED MINDS: Twin Sisters and Their Journey through Schizophrenia. Despite much adversity, Wagner has been lucky enough to have experienced four life-changing miracles along the way. The passion to write poetry and then to discover a talent for art in 2008 at the age of 55 are two of these. Wagner currently resides along with her cat, Beanie Baby, in Brattleboro, where she disavows all mental illness labels.
