I was diagnosed with SZ in 1987 and I have made a full recovery because of the medication. If you actually had ragin', full-on psychosis, I doubt you would welcome that mental state and refuse the medication that could give you your life back. The medication is NOT a "tool of control" and I know that because I take one of the medications. I'm not sure if you were diagnosed with SZ. If you were not, how can you presume that the medication is a tool of control? People looking at the situation from the outside often have no idea what goes on. Hopefully by reading the SharePosts here, and reading my Profile and the Profiles of everyone else, you will see that recovery is possible even if there's no "cure."
Because, Daleri, the Geodon was as close to a cure as I could get; and I submit that's all that matters: I recovered.
The reality is, 95 percent or more of the people diagnosed with SZ need medication in order to have the best possible chance of recovery. Only about one percent have a single psychotic episode and never have one again and don't need medication.
So instead of using the absence of medication as the Holy Grail for determining whether someone is cured or recovered, look to the statistics and body of evidence here and elsewhere that show recovery is not only possible, it's probable when one stays in treatment.
Had you not suggested that the medication is used as tool of control, I wouldn't have come on so strong.
