Doctors assure the public that psychotropic drugs don’t get a patient high; rather, supposedly, they return the patient to a normal state of functioning. But what happens if such a patient, say, myself, for instance, has rarely if ever experienced a normal state of functioning? What happens if such a patient has spent much of her life in mental hospitals, both pursuing and pursued by one illness after another? What happens if “regular life” to such a person has always meant cutting one’s arms, or gagging?
