Waiting pain out: or why I don’t go to the doctor…
Dropping the label ‘schizophrenia’
Interesting. There are many inaccurate connotations to the term schizophrenia, most propagated by movies that don’t bother to find out what the symptoms of the disorder actually are. Even the etymology of the word is misleading in terms of what we now know about the disorder. But if you rename schizophrenia, does this mean every disorder get a rename? Does depression become serotonin defecate disorder? And even if you do rename it, does that take away the stigma associated with it (and any mental health problem)?
Finished the POV rewrite. It’s shoddy, but there.
Eric and I were reading/polishing some Model Species, but got caught on whether ‘booth’ is an okay word choice for a phone booth sized area that is *not* a phone booth. That just seemed to take the wind out of us.
It may be true that when I read the end product I won’t be able to tell which days were hard and which were not, but in the meantime the crappy bits are sticking out like sore pinky toes.
I think I’m going to read a while and then go to bed. Tomorrow has got to be better.
