QuotesAdd a Quote
(pg.222)..."the biological approach of general medicine was broadly applied to the field of mental illness, a shift that has caused 'psychiatry to focus so exclusively on the brain as an organ that the experience of the patient as a person has receded below the horizon of our vision.' <Eisenberg> The results are what we're seeing now: misdiagnosis and over-diagnosis, and a reliance on drug therapy as the primary line of defense against disorders that, because of their nature, demand a multifaceted approach."
(pg.196).."if ADHD doesn't determine you, it does tend to limit your second chances---a reality that, at the very least, places a premium on the moments in which you're conscious of deciding what happens next."
