has anyone seen the documentary "crumb" about the artist r. crumb. i remember he showed his family and to me it seems like it's plague with a lot of mental illness. crumb was able to express his emotions through his comics and that probably helped to decrease his stress level.
sadly after the documentary was finished his older brother commited suicide. he had long bouts of depresion and was even prescribed antipsychotic medications. So saying things like
it's PROPAGANDA pure and simple, many of these "sick" people are not victims of OCD or ADD or BD or whatever, they are victims of add campaigns !!!
only endangers those that are suffering from it. of course there are misdiagnosis, but doctors are human too...they're not perfect.
i remember one of crumb's brother was talking about how one night when they were kids he had to fight the urge to get a knife and stab his brothers and sisters in thier sleep. this was a kid that seriously needed help and did not get any help even when he was an adult living out in the streets panhandling.
Robert crumb was one of the lucky ones in that family.
