Aw, I'm sad he's unwell. He's awesome. I have read interviews with him that made me cry.

Man, that is a long time. At least it would be in our lifetimes if that happened? But yeah, it pisses me off. Sure, let's pump people full of SSRIs instead of using guided therapy with something that boosts serotonin and removes inhibitions.

There is so much stuff it's almost impossible for me to talk about effectively in therapy. I'll get there, but WTF?

Julie Holland (whose video I'll link to as soon as it becomes available) spoke of the numbers of people, particularly veterans, who are not responding to traditional treatments for PTSD. Then she talked about the suicide rates among these groups. This is where that statement about how it's unethical not to do the research came from. It was incredibly moving, especially when I know from experience how helpful such therapies could be.

Sasha Shulgin had a stroke a couple of years ago. He's in a wheelchair and still quite unwell. But he was there, and that means a lot, you know?

I knew about the PTSD study from MAPS when it was first approved. It was a huge deal to me (at the time, only because I think psychedelics are amazing and MDMA is one that both has therapeutic value and acts on neurotransmitters that our society already (at least in the US) has no issues with mucking about with. I'd love to see the video.

Seeing as I've realized the extent of my own trauma issues (not at ALL to compare them to what veterans go through), the whole thing has a new meaning to me at this point.
