Just checking back in, and will respond here first. Lord, E. Torrey Fuller - I know it'll make some on here cringe, but you might as well have been quoting Nurse Wratched. I mean, come on. And what a self-serving quotation.
Yes, I am familiar with John Nash.
There are a LARGE NUMBER of people who get through a diagnosis of schizophrenia without long term use of drugs and their bad effects. It's not at all apparent to me that many participating in this forum are even slightly familiar with these trends and movements beyond just labeling them "anti psychiatry" which of course many are. Seriously, guys, there are lots of people out there cobbling together treatments of their own, with help from friends and family members and the occasional professional. I know such a scenario must conjure up images of shotguns and violent psychotics to many of you, but that just ain't the reality.
