The more I resist, the more convinced the psychiatrists are that I am sick and that this disease is getting worse.

  • It is a master intrigue, this darkness, pitting groups of people against each other.
  • It’s been like that ever since I sought help from psychiatry.
  • I recognized then that I was looking for help from the wrong group of people, but I was already trapped in their trap.
  • I was already in a trap of declining independence, accompanied by compliments that I was doing well.
  • That is very similar to what happens during the aging process and the circumstances in which older people find themselves.
  • I mean, it’s the way I say it.
