|1 Boring Old Man|
I retired [from psychiatry] at the end of 2003 and involved myself in matters non-psychiatric. In 2006, I heard that Emory’s Chairman, Dr. Charlie Nemeroff, had to step down as editor of Neuropsychopharmacology because of an undeclared conflict of interest. After Senator Grassley exposed Charlie Nemeroff’s extensive problems with conflicts of interest and he was "stepped down" as chairman of the department at Emory in 2008, I started looking into recent psychiatric history with increasing interest [mouth agape] and began to realize the level of misbehavior. I began to blog about such things.
I am not an anti-psychiatrist. If anything, I’m the opposite – someone who is appalled at the misdirection that the specialty has taken. So I see the time I spend chasing down the kind of things I write about as my small attempt to get us on track. Psychiatrists are physicians who work to help the mentally ill. Any diversion from that is "off track" in my book.
