• "ECT causes PTSD, and has been described as 'soul rape.'” - Level One Trauma Nurse – Tune In…

    30 MAY. 2024 · "Today on H.O.L.D.F.A.S.T. Radio I discussed ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), sharing one woman's account of ECT from her perspective as a level one trauma nurse for 25 years. She has been hushed by the medical industry for her attempt to expose ECT for what it is; harmful, and soul-crushing. Her attempt to give ECT patients/victims a voice has been fruitless. I, too, have felt the repercussions of ECT and feel that the ill effects of this barbaric so-called treatment need to be exposed. ECT, in my humble opinion, is not used to help... but to hinder those who suffer from mental dis-ease. It simply creates an initial false sense of euphoria, followed by mental and emotional nothingness. It is clearly a barbaric tool that manufactures submissive, helpless meat puppets out of feeling humans... and sadly, it works." - A. Grieme - Today’s episode featured the music of very REAL musicians: Big Thief, Lowertown, Mannequin Pussy, and Papa Dose (featuring Jillian Taylor and Ruby the Hatchett).

  • Hope (ium) is a hell of a lot more effective than opium! Pos Psy and Eastern Philosophy are GREAT tools!

    4 ENE. 2024 · "After many years as a patient, I was introduced to Positive Psychology (PosPsy), a scientific methodology that investigates human behavior focusing on a patient's strengths, rather than weaknesses. I found that if I moved my thinking out of my cluttered mind and slid approximately 18”down into my heart space, I was far more comfortable in my own skin. It took practice, but it was there that I found clarity; I felt content with discontentment." - A. Grieme
