Poem: "I'm Just Fine" by Tom Greening

Although I think that I'm just fine
my friends claim that I'm borderline.
Each time I rant and rave a bit
they say that I have had a fit.
They diagnose me as a nut
and then they try to drug me but
I know that God is on my side
and that I'll soon be deified.
While lesser mortals strive and strain
I'm blessed to have a better brain
that helps me navigate through life
and rise above their petty strife.
If they attack ad hominem
I'm going to start drugging them.

Laura Delano - Psychiatric survivor blogger activist

Laura works as a peer specialist in the traditional mental health system and writes a blog at, where she is sharing her story of recovery from psychiatry. After living with psychiatric labels for 13 years and taking psychotropic medications for ten of them, Laura says she found liberation in 2010 from her psychiatric diagnoses, from her reliance upon the mental health system, and from the once deep-seated belief that she was sentenced to a life-long "mental illness." Laura says, "I am proud to be a member of the MindFreedom International community for all MFI does to promote equality, justice, and civil rights for people who have been labeled 'mentally ill.'"
