  • Evelyn, I’m most appreciative of your encouragement. You are pretty special yourself. I just finished reading a book I put together titled “Declaration” Hindsight really is 20/20 isn’t it. The intent of the book was to show that people who are being treated by a psychiatrist are often misdiagnosed or even not diagnosed at all when it comes to drugs side effects and the physical harm induced by them.
    I am considering adding the Summary as a post on MIA. So grateful to be active and actively pursuing greater knowledge regarding the “measure of relief for 1-2 weeks” when ECT is administered. Yep, only one to two weeks, that would explain why Kitty Dukakis never made it beyond the maintenance ECT’s she claimed made her “feel” normal.
    That’s where I found myself one day and that’s when I said “NO” to ECT.
    Alive and well! Praising God for the tenacity that moved me to wellness!

  • Thank you Duane! I am especially grateful for the ability to comprehend and that it continues to escalate, grateful to be on the winning side!

    For me, recovery really did begin with discovery. I’m so thankful for the internet and for people who are willing to share their stories. More often than not psychiatry tends to embed its clients into the architecture of America, psychiatry would that silence prevail.

    Let hope dominate the future,

  • Thanks Mary, you too are an inspiration. My apologies for not responding when I first read your comment. I’ve been working hard at trying to document how my current physical status is directly related to an event that occurred in October 2003. Hopefully I can share the documented facts in story form in the near future. Thanks for being so supportive and for giving of yourself so that others like myself might benefit!

  • Dear Cannotsay, thank you for caring. I see psychiatry as having one major weapon, FEAR. Several times I was face on with that fear, fear of court ordered stays in the psych ward, fear of being locked away (committed), fear of coming off the drugs not knowing if the diagnosis of mental illness was real or imagined by my doctors.

    Franklin D. Roosevelt said it best in his First Inaugural Address: “So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself-nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance!” You can read it here:

    As long as we are controlled by the fear which is generated by the psychiatric community they retain the power to control. Fear promotes flight or fight and I have chosen to fight!

  • Hi Jonah, thank you! Your comments are appreciated. Often times it requires winning many small battles before we can win the war. I will continue the battle because I believe anything less would be totally out of character for me. The meetings held by the FDA put me in a “put up or shut up” situation and I pushed through overwhelming fear to stand before that advisory panel to present my experienced opinion about shock induced Grand Mal Seizures. I’m so thankful to be on the winning side!
