  1. Very few understand that the psychiatric drugs affect the brain like the drug alcohol affects the brain to think/work.
    Only God knows how responsible she was for her actions. With alcohol they do have a known limit of 0.05 grams (50 milligrams) of alcohol in every 100 millilitres of blood.

    The pharmaceutical company drugs can only do “good” things to a persons brain according to the brainwashed public, and there is no one making billions in profits to be able to publish contrary information about the drugs.

  2. It seems like from the news articles that setting precedents was much more important to this court then the actual case.

    Here is the CNN Version and that has links to some of the text exchanges.

    Carter: “But the mental hospital would help you. I know you don’t think it would but I’m telling you, if you give them a chance, they can save your life”
    Carter: “Part of me wants you to try something and fail just so you can go get help”

    It really seems like this guy was holding her hostage with that I am going to kill myself stuff but at the same time I know that some BPD self harm chicks seem to screw with guys heads like it is a sport for their own entertainment.

    “A Ridiculous Dose Of Antidepressants Made Me Emotionally Numb…

    I’m a big f*cking feeler. Always have been. My therapist calls me “highly sensitive.” My mother calls me “oversensitive.” My exes call me a “drama queen.” …

    I can’t even watch the news for five minutes without feeling like I’m losing my mind. The negative, harrowing images of our war-torn world, the slew of abused shelter animals staring at you with their massive pressing puppy dog eyes and the graphic stories of police brutality just feel like too much to handle. The disturbing visuals get burned into my brain, and I fixate for weeks, sometimes months, at a time…

    I used to hate feeling so much. Life is so f*cking hard when you’re a walking open wound that lets in every tiny speck of dust. So about four years ago, I decided I was going to seek relief from my feelings…

    Six to eight weeks later, I found myself with this unfamiliar ability to watch movies without shedding a single tear.

    Or get suicidal text messages and not shed a tear ?

    I know how some “drama queen” cutter chicks can act but I agree with Dr. Breggin she was emotionally blanked out by the drugs and that lead to the outcome, if she had the full range of her natural emotions this would have been different.

  3. Be careful what you say. In the future, if you say “drop dead” to someone, and they do so, you could be charged with manslaughter.

    I think the judge made a bad decision here. My feeling is that this girl is a lot less guilty than physicians who would assist people with emotional difficulties at “suicide”. As you will notice, the “suicide” here is in between quotation marks.

    I was wondering whether the victim might not have been on psych-drugs himself. Suicidality will get you there, and in this kid’s case, it didn’t seem like it wasn’t common knowledge. From there, you just go to the black box warning labels.

  4. Googling in SSRI Side Effects can produce pages of SSRI disaster stories. But theres a taboo within medicine around admitting to any of this. The drugs can definitely drive a person mad but getting any kind of suitable help can be a frightening lottery.
