123rd. Stroke

This black is to remind everyone of how much things actually suck. We get brain washed and medicated till we built up a facade of happiness and all that pink cloud shit. When really the world is passing by and you are getting robbed of your time, money, your life and everyone important in it. You become a prisoner in your own head.


  1. your head controls your life. it will be your choice if you wanna go under.
    and once you have permitted yourself to be engulfed by the negativity, it is hard to swim back to the open shore.
    your stroke on this canvass seemed monotonous. why don't you break the monotony by putting something that washed it over, just like you said... brain washed...

    i love dealing with your thoughts here.
    ill be your follower

  2. To Josh and all others out there reading this,

    Thousands of people daily, receiving treatment through the medical model of medication, are experiencing similar feelings as you. For you and all others who struggle with the effects of medication the following may serve to shed some much needed light on mental illness and it’s current treatment. Award winning science and history writer Robert Whitaker has recently published the book “Anatomy Of An Epidemic, Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America”. This book is based on the research of medical studies, which raise essential questions, and most importantly gives real hope for recovery. A couple of the questions this book explores are, “Why has the number of disabled mentally ill in the United States tripled over the past two decades despite the $40 billion being spent each year on medication?”, and “Is medication helping or hurting people’s mental and physical health?” This book also explores innovative programs of psychiatric care that are producing a much higher percentage of good long term outcomes, and using less to no medication. As it turns out, there are many people who have recovered from what was diagnosed as a serious mental illness, thus bringing into question the belief that serious mental illness is a life long, incurable condition.

    I’d also highly recommend the documentary “Take these Broken Wings” by Daniel Mackler. This film is about recovery from schizophrenia without medication, and follows the lives of two women who have totally recovered from this illness. If interested in the above book and/or film, just google the names to find out more. Whitaker’s book is also available as an ebook, and Josh, I have a copy.

    May we all find wellness,

    With love,
