Jed:

Most people suffer various mental illnesses from time to time - we all get depressed once in a while, we all get a bit paranoid - that's part of human nature, and that's OK. In some people, however, the conditions are severe enough to seriously impact their lives to where they can't provide for and/or care for themselves.

This doesn't mean the rest of us don't suffer from mental illnesses. There are many who live in that grey area between fully functional and totally nuts.

It is the same with physical illnesses. There is a large spectrum between fully healthy and intensive care, and most of our medical industry deals with caring for those in between. Why should mental health be any different?
---Strongaxe on 2/2/12


StrongAxe, I think I understand what you are saying but you are actually making my point. Don't we all have different abilities as well as disabilities? There are many jobs that I would rather do but I just would never be able to do, neither physically nor mentally. Does that mean I have a disability? No, it doesn't. Some people are not able to do physical labor and some are not able to handle the stress of mental labor. That's no excuse not to work or else we'd all have a reason not to work as we all have difficulties with some things. There are very few who are totally unable to working any job at all. Those are the only ones who should not have to work. All I'm saying is if you can work at any job at all then you should.
---Jed on 2/2/12


NurseRobert:

Don't forget that those figures are likely fairly conservative, because there are many other people who have undiagnosed mental health issues (either because they cannot afford health insurance, or they are unaware of their issues, or the issues make it difficult for them to seek help), and these would not be included in the statistics.
---StrongAxe on 2/1/12


Jed, I did a little "homework" and found that, in 2008, about 4 1/2% of the population have a diagnosed mental health issue. (NIMH, 2008). This includes mental, behavioral, or emotional disorder (excluding developmental and substance use disorders). That's almost 14 million people.

Since I doubt you have seen even 1/1000th of these, Your claim that "Almost ALL mental illnesses are bogus" is ludicrous on its face and an insult to those who have mental illness.



---NurseRobert on 2/1/12


Jed: I work in mental health, and I disagree with your statement about most patients being unwilling to behave appropriately. In my experience, they do not know how to change their behavior. Also, they need intensive psychotherapy, and medications in order to learn the changes necessary, and many lack those resources.
---Trish on 2/1/12




Jed:

1) Either there is a legitimate need, or there isn't (i.e. practitioners are charlatans cheating healthy clients)

2) I know people with mental conditions that make it difficult (if not impossible) for them to live normal lives.

3) I have mild OCD and ADD, that have not prevented me from living a normal life, but I would have been able to do much better without them.

Many mild conditions (colds, indigestion, near-sightedness, etc.) don't stop people from living normal lives, but we recognize them as legitimate.

One could be callous and say the deaf, dumb, lame, and lepers were perfectly fine as beggars, or do what Jesus did and heal them.
---StrongAxe on 2/1/12


NurseRoberts, I don't know how many papers (if any) have been published that support my viewpoints. I don't form my opinions based on what other people said but upon my own personal and professional experiences. If you really want to know the truth then look them up yourself. I'm not going to do your homework for you.

StrongAxe, I don't know what you're talking about. You seem to think yourself an authority on the matter but your statements here suggests you've never worked in mental health. Anyone that has worked in mental health knows that the majority of "mental health" consumers are not incabable of behaving appropriately, but are merely unwilling to do so.
---Jed on 1/31/12


Jed, what papers have been published that support your point of view?
---NurseRobert on 1/31/12


Jed:

Do the school(s) where you go your degrees and your professional colleagues agree with you?

If not, wouldn't that make yours a minority opinion? And if so (and they STILL get into the field), wouldn't that indicate a willingness bilk large quantities of medical dollars out of people who aren't really sick?

And whether or not a large number of people are faking it, or have trivial complaints, there are still many for whom mental illness is a real and debilitating condition.
---StrongAxe on 1/31/12


StrongAxe, Yes I am. I just received my PhD and have been working in the mental health field for years. I will say it again. Almost ALL mental illnesses are bogus.
---Jed on 1/31/12




Jed:

Are you a trained medical practitioner with the knowledge and experience to be able to judge that most mental illnesses are bogus? Unless you are, you're not in a position to make that kind of judgment.

There is a common misconception that while physical illnesses are generally outside a person's control, mental illnesses are just a matter of wrong thinking, and can be overcome by a force of will. If that were the case, they wouldn't be "mental illnesses" but rather "mental habits".

There are many of them that people have and can still live fulfilled productive lives (as long as they aren't too severe). But there are also many that make doing so impossible.
---StrongAxe on 1/30/12


Jed: I don't believe I was putting words in your mouth, and I apologize if it seemed that way.

I will say that I was approved for Social Security Disability several years ago, for a variety of incurable orthopedic issues, with constant pain, as well as bipolar disorder. After my second psychiatric hospitalization two years, I tried to return to my teaching job, but couldn't.

I rarely sleep through the night, with the chronic pain, and sleep deprivation working full time became impossible.

Social Security heard from all of the hospitals, labs, radiologists, pain specialists, my family doctor, rheumatologist and psychiatrist. I hope you would not begrudge me either.
---Trish on 1/30/12


Trish, Does your nephew fit the description I posted of people who are frauding Social Security? Then no, I wouldn't begrudge him benefits. I did not say everyone who is on Social Security doesn't deserve it. I said most, which is the truth. An overwhelming majority of mental illnesses are completely bogus and are nothing more than enablers of laziness and bad behavior. That is the majority of people on Social Security today. Not all of them, but most of them. Only you know if this includes your nephew or not. Don't put words in my mouth.
---Jed on 1/30/12


Where is Babylonian Amerika?

Is it somewhere in the Mideast, near Iran?
---atheist on 1/28/12



GOD allowed Obama as Judgment against Babylonian Amerika.

---Gordon on 1/27/12

I shuddered when I read this.

Hopefully, this isn't true, but it very well could be. GOD's judgment is coming sooner or later. Upon the entire world too. Not just America.

America has been given everything it needs in order to be successful. Yet, we seem to be falling further, and further, AWAY FROM GOD.

Through all of this, I've often wondered WHEN, if EVER, GOD's representatives -- Pastors, Missionaries, etc. -- here on Earth are going to speak up about this coming judgment from GOD.

Gordon, thanks for reminding us about GOD's judgment.

WHEN, if EVER, will people take this seriously?

At the time I don't think he had done anything to be awarded a peace prize. I demeans the award.

More than likely, Rick Santorum will not be the next President of the U.S. It will most likely be Obama again. GOD allowed Obama as Judgment against Babylonian Amerika. HIS Judgment has just barely begun. It is not like GOD to allow a righteous leader to rule over a country that is insistent on being sinful and rebellious. Judgment of GOD on America COULD be delayed even longer than it already has been. But, are the American people, including MAINLY the American Churches, willing to repent "in sack-cloth and ashes" and to tuurn back to GOD and HIS Ways? Well, I don't see it, anyway.
---Gordon on 1/27/12


Obama has done well despite the opposition.

---joseph on 1/27/12

I've lived long enough to see that the "Cut Taxes" movement -- from Ronald Reagan to Bush II -- has wreaked havoc on the United States.

The GOP's intentions were good: Reduce taxes and Encourage more business investment. That supposedly would make the economy grow and become self-sustaining.

However, the GOP Presidents cut taxes TOO MUCH. The longer term result is a debt of TRILLIONS of $$$.

I don't think that President Obama has much choice but to restore tax rates to where they were before Ronald Reagan. It's either THAT or BANKRUPTCY.

GOPers, Which would you prefer? More Taxes? National Bankruptcy?
---Augie on 1/27/12


Joseph, I agree with most of it. Im not sure just what he did to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize.

Last I heard, Rick's campaign was going down the toilet. Out of money and out of ideas.

It's interesting watching the Republican race to the nominiation. sorta like watching a train wreck. Dont want to watch, but cant turn away either.

Obama has done well despite the opposition.
1. Got Osama bin Laden. 2.unemployment rate 8.5%. 3. 1.6 million jobs created with no GOP help. 4. 22 months of job and economic growth with no help. 5. Ended war in Iraq. 6.

trish, I am glad your family memeber is receiving ss. I know some who are not sick and get it. You can be an alcoholic or drug addict and receive it. I know of such people. You can get it if you have fatigue...now isn't that just hunky dorey. you can get it if your back hurts or fybromialga. ss has gotten out of control. Some who receive it work under the table.

We have to borrow money from other countries to pay our SS recipients
---Jed on 1/26/12

Everyone who WORKED paid into the Social Security fund and is rightfully entitled to collect benefits when they STOP working. Retired or Disabled.

The Social Security fund WAS "Financially Sound" until the Federal Government began borrowing from this fund for the wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. And other things too.

If the Federal Government has to borrow money NOW, it is to REPAY the Social Security fund for what was borrowed in the PAST.

You stated in another blog that Borrowers should repay their debts.

That includes the Federal Government too.
---Sag on 1/26/12


Trish, I was referring to Seq's comment. But since you bring up SS, what you have described is what SS was designed to be when it started, but it no longer works like that. Most people on SS today are youngsters diagnosed with some bogus mental illness and have never had to work or pay into SS. That's not what SS was supposed to be it has become that. It's no longer a "retirement plan". Anyone working today who does not retire within the next few years will never see a dime of the money they've paid into SS. We have to borrow money from other countries to pay our SS recipients because there are hundreds times more people getting SS than have paid into it. Democrats have made it another welfare program for the non-working.

Did you know military retirees have tri care for life? When you reach 65, it automatically switches over to medicare. If medicare don't cover it, tri care life don't cover it either. My husband was dying and dr gave him 1 xanax. 1 yr after he passed away I got a bill for 26.50...it was for 1 xanax that medicare did not cover...neither did tri care. One reason my husband stayed in military for 23 yrs was for health benefits. Benefits that was taken away from military retirees after the age 65.

Joseph, close but no cigar.
According to the Congress Research Service (the people who reseach information for members of congress)" Retirement Benefits for Members of Congress"

"Members of Congress first elected in 1984 or later are covered automatically under the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS), unless they decline this coverage."

"All Members pay Social Security payroll taxes equal to 6.2% of the Social Security taxable wage base ($97,500 in 2007)."

I do agree that congress has some mighty find bennies. Google "Congressional Retirement" and it should be the first on the list (a PDF file).

Larry: Here in Australia the media reports indicated that more blacks than usual were wanting to vote in that election.
I believe in the USA you guys can choose whether to vote or not. Here in Australia we have no choice as voting is compulsory (as each vote earns tax dollars for the pockets of major political parties).

Also, even white people wanted Obama in the presidency for no other reason than to give a black person a go at the presidency.

Our Australian media even got caught up in that enthusiasm/propaganda for giving a black guy a go at the presidency. But in the past US elections got less attention here. It was clear that policy was not the main issue in that election. Race was.
---Haz27 on 1/15/12


As for Obama, even here in Australia I could see that he got in on the racially prejudiced vote.

Social Security isn't free,a working person pays SS Tax their entire working life or if you want to look at it like a retirment fund they pay into. What working people get is what they earned not welfare. Medicare isn't free we pay for it just like any other kind of insurance payment every month plus we have a deductible that we have to meet evey year before the insurance pays. Even so Medicare pays only 80% of the Medical Bills so we either pay for 20% out of pocket or pay more for supplemental insurance. The shortage isn't due to those who paid into SS getting back,its about the Federal Govenment taking the interest raised on money from SS and putting it into the General Fund instead of leaving it to grow for SS. Why isn't that wrong ?

I agree 100% !!!

Could you get ALL of the Federal, State, County, City, etc. Governments to repeal ALL current "Tax and Spend" laws, policies, taxes, etc.

This would involve de-funding the following, among other things:

Churches
Foreign Aid
Schools
Military
Veterans
Highways
Parks
Public Sports Stadiums
etc. etc.

Just think how much money we could save!

And I could sock away a lot of money for providing for my future family.

Any other supporters out there?

Wow !!! It's time to party!

Seq, let me remedy a misunderstanding you have. The government shouldn't provide for ANYONE. That is a personal responsibility that falls on individuals to provide for their own family. That's the root of this mess, people think the government should provide for them instead of them providing for themselves. The government CAN'T provide for anyone because it's not a person that earns money. It can only take money from working people to provide for someone else. And the government doesn't provide for the rich, they don't get welfare. Lowering their taxes is not providing for them, that just means they're providing less for others, which is their right. The rich are providing for the poor, not the other way around. The poor pay no taxes.

Trish, Darlene 1:

I think that Rick's plans for Social Security are very frightening. The problems there are a mask for deeper ones:

Funny how the U.S. Government says that it has to provide LESS for the Young, Elderly, Needy, etc. And MORE for the Rich, Military Businesses, etc. It all comes down to one word: GREED.

I think that the USA will probably have to "Hit The Bottom" -- similar to alcoholism -- before the Government will "Wise Up".

In Biblical terms, China already owns the debt-laden USA and could end up Governing the country. Even more scary!

All we can do is pray that GOD would bring the Right leader into the U.S. Presidency. I doubt that that is Rick Santorum.

Trish I agree,to cut the elderly,which I am one and the disabled,etc who draw from the government,is to care more about other countries than America. My question is,why do they want to cut Americans,who many helped build this country, but keep borrowing money to give to other countries not only for aid with food,but for aids treatment? Charity needs to and should begin in our own country. It is wrong for any USA leader to want to make laws that hurt Americans. Americans need to be wise about who they vote for and get all the facts on that person because they may contribute to putting Americans on the bottom of the list for help.

This guy sounds like a hypocrite to me. Trying to hide the truth.

Rick's own wife had an abortion in the 1990's.

Now, this guy is claiming how much he is against killing the unborn. When it took place within his own marriage.

Is that because abortion is murder?

Or, is that because Rick's wife is feeling awful about what took place?

Rick claims that his wife's abortion was different. No way. Whatever the reason, Abortion is Murder. Period.

The next President won't be Rick Sanitorium, Mittens Romney, Newty Gingrich, Prawn Paul, 'Rick Perry, John "I Speak Mandarin Chinese" Huntsman, The Donald, Huey, Dewy or Louie!

Barack "Hussein" Obama will be re-elected by the majority of rational thinking Americans who realize the futility of starting from scratch with a new administration in these troubled socio-economic times. It would, at a minimum, take two years for a new Pres' just to adjust to being in the office before coming to grips with our economic & geo-political woes. Don't naively think all the political rhetoric, posturing & promises will be fulfilled instantly (if at all) with a GOP head in the White House. Remember the Bushamo!!! :)

I think that Rick Santorum has effectively "torpedoed" any chance of becoming the next President.

Why? Because of his insistence that Social Security benefits need to be cut IMMEDIATELY. This caught many people by surprise and turned them against Mr. Santorum. Both Working folks and Retiress.

Well, at least Rick Santorum was able to stand up and face one of the financial problems facing the USA. The country is $15+ TRILLION is debt!

The USA needs a Leader who can get us out of the debt trap we're in! And soon.

Jim, I agree, anyone but Obama. And I really do mean anyone. I would vote for a box of rocks over Obama. A box of rocks would do a better job. At least a box of rocks couldn't do more to destroy us. No action is better than bad action. Seriously, you could find a better candidate at the local MRDD school than Obama.

I don't think Rick would win against Obama, not sure why.

I do think Mitt Romney would win against Obama.

Rick is a very nice man, a conservative, Catholic, Family man, but I think he's too lay back and Obama would win against him. Mitt is more powerful as a man and as a President.

the next president will not be our choice. nor was any since the beginning of the 20th century (and probably from the nation's inception).

the fact that he is a politician in the national spotlight tells you exactly who he is.

Character is dictating how things will go. I don't think President Obama can mess things up, all by himself. If he wasn't still running, I'd be expecting to have our first lady president. The character of the people is part of what dictates what has happened. For just one example, the people couldn't be cheated by real estate sellers unless they were dishonest enough to be greedy for what they didn't need and could not handle > "be content with such things as you have" (in Hebrews 13:5). If enough is not enough for the people, they will be dissatisfied, even if there are more jobs and money. And the higher ones have the same dishonest character. Let the one without sin cast the first stone.

Anyone but Obama... I would vote for Santorum all day and twice on sunday to beat Obama. We need someone who can turn this economy around, get business to hire people, quit spending my tax dollars and shrink the size of the government.

It's too soon to tell if he will even be nominated.

All we know is that Bachmann will NOT be nominated.

Glory to JEsus Christ!

Rick Santorum, if elected, would become our second Roman Catholic president. He is very conservative and attends the old Latin mass regularly. He is also associated with Opus Dei, and has spoken at their functions. So, maybe he'd be okay as president.
