I like this reply in the blog

Open message for Tom Cruise:

It truly is a shame when someone as talented as you falls ever so hard from society's norm. You appear to be suffering from a severe case of pathological narcissism, symptoms of histrionic personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder coupled with folie á deux with your dearly (current) beloved. Since you’ve stated to Matt Lauer that you’ve studied psychiatry to the fullest extent, I should be of the understanding that you FULLY understand what each of these conditions are.

Your ego is definitely out of control and the premise for which you stand on psychiatric issues goes way beyond conventional wisdom. Obviously you choose to read only material that you agree with and will not read (or learn about) anything pertaining to the side you disagree with. This behavior is also indicative of a child in the midst of the “I-Know-Everything-And-You-Know-Nothing” years.

A truly objective and unrestrained person will know and understand ALL sides of an issue and be willing to debate the subject without personal bias. You, Mr. Cruise, have such a condescending air about you that I don’t think it is remotely possible for you to ever be objective at all (see ‘pathological narcissism’).

The inability to respect different points of view and the fact that you chose not to learn about them speaks volumes of your character, which of course is saying nothing at all. Get off your self-induced moral high-horse and put that out of control ego of yours in check!

Cruise also insisted, "There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance," and that through "vitamins and exercise" a person's problems can be cured. "Drugs are not the answer," said Cruise. "I think there's a better quality of life."

So is it okay to be a Christian and believe in Xenu????


Hello... no such thing as a chemical imbalance. Two of my family members have bipolar and vitamins and exercise will not help them.

Tom is the one who needs his brain examined.

um, Tom if you've done all this research, then you've probably read this about chemical imbalances:

From WebMD

"Neurotransmitters
The physiological basis of depression can be found in nerve cells in the part of the brain responsible for human emotions centered in the hypothalamus, a cherry-size structure that controls basic functions such as thirst, hunger, sleep, sexual desire, and body temperature. Each nerve cell in your brain is separated by tiny gaps; neurotransmitters communicate by ferrying messages across these gaps to a "receptor" on the other side. Each neurotransmitter has a special shape that helps it fit exactly into a corresponding receptor like a key in an ignition switch. When the neurotransmitter "key" is inserted into its matching receptor's "ignition," the cell fires and sends the message on its way. Once the message is sent, the neurotransmitter is either absorbed into the cell or burned up by enzymes patrolling the gaps.

When the levels of these neurotransmitters are abnormally low, messages can't get across the gaps, and communication in the brain slows down. It appears that depression occurs if you don't have enough of these neurotransmitters circulating in your brain or if your neurotransmitters can't fit into the receptors for some reason.

While there are as many as 100 different kinds of neurotransmitters, norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine seem to be of particular importance in depression. The pathways for these neurotransmitters reach deep into many of the parts of the brain responsible for functions that are affected in depression—sleep, appetite, mood, and sexual interest.

Scientists aren't sure whether depression is directly related to abnormal levels of these transmitters, or whether these neurotransmitters affect yet another neurotransmitter that's even more directly involved in depression. But it is clear that neurotransmitters are related to depression because medications that boost levels of these neurotransmitters also ease depression. Yet some of the newer antidepressants don't affect the levels of all these neurotransmitters, though they still relieve depression. And other drugs (such as cocaine) that do interfere with neurotransmitter levels don't affect depression.

And here's the knottiest puzzle of all: Antidepressants can raise your neurotransmitter levels almost immediately, but your depression won't lift until weeks after drug therapy has begun. Depression appears to be far more than a simple problem with the amount of neurotransmitters in the synaptic cleft. Instead, it is probably influenced by a complex interplay of receptor "ignition" responses and the release of the neurotransmitter "keys." It also seems to depend not just on the number of neurotransmitter keys but on the quality and availability of the receptor ignitions.

Antidepressants appear to make certain receptors unreachable, which may explain the antidepressants' lag time. The inaccessibility of these receptors may trigger an increase in the production of neurotransmitters. These changes don't happen right after antidepressant treatment begins; they can take up to several weeks. This receptor change has been reported in almost all antidepressant drug treatment and also in electroconvulsive therapy. "


yep, no such thing as chemical imbalances, sure - no science behind it, none at all

"MATT LAUER: But a little bit what you're saying Tom is, you say you want people to do well. But you want them do to well by taking the road that you approve of, as opposed to a road that may work for them."

"MATT LAUER: But you're now telling me that your experiences with the people I know, which are zero, are more important than my experiences."

Matt Lauer I think I love you

Love Matt Lauer

Quickly losing respect for Tom. Think his ex is wonderful and he's gone downhill since. Maybe he's in the midst of his own breakdown and after getting help he will return as the T.C I used to love.

This really isn't funny anymore, it's more like a tragicomedy.

I think he's off his meds and needs serious psychiatric help ASAP.

In fact, he reminds me of bipolar patients who enter a manic phase soon after going off Lithium.

I read on another forum that last week's issue of Entertainment Weekly had an article in which Tom again shared his "historical views" of psychiatry, and EW in parenthesis told us each time how he was wrong.

It's really quite sad that TC thinks he knows everything about psychiatry. What an ass!

You know you're in trouble when Al Roker is criticising you . . .

I got this from the www.televisionwithoutpity.com forums. They got it from Al Roker's blog:

"June 24, 2005 | 8:18 a.m.
Matt's interview with Tom Cruise (Al Roker)

Hey gang, so did you see Matt's interview this morning with Tom Cruise? Okay, I congratulate people who are passionate about their beliefs, their faith and their love. What frightens me a little bit is when that passion tries to steam roll others. I don't want anyone coming after me for knocking Scientology — let's be up front about that. Someone's religion is their deal as long as you don't hurt me or my loved ones with your beliefs, I'm cool with yours.

But I think Tom oversteps the line when he starts taking on people who use certain drugs to deal with either depression, mental illness or other problems. Can there be abuses, troubles and misdiagnosis? You bet. But there is too much evidence that points to real help for certain people.

Is Brooke Shields better because certain drugs helped her post partum depression? You have to look to her and her family for that answer, but it is not Tom Cruise's place to take her to task for her choices. Did they hurt Tom? Did they somehow cause problems for him? Hey, I have relatives who were on Ritalin. A couple it helped, a few it didn't. You don't see me on some crusade, bashing people who did nothing to me.

Just as we should shut up about wondering if Tom's relationship with Katie Holmes is a publicity stunt, Tom oughta pipe down about people he doesn't know about situations he hasn't experienced. You're an actor, not a med student. But the best part about being American is that you can say whatever the heck you want in this country, as loopy and as goofy as it might sound.

So let the war of the words continue — that's what America is all about."



First thought: Go Matt! Go Al!

Second thought: Al Roker has a blog?
