  • Dear Dr. Williams,

    Thank you for your work, it is important and needed in a era where SSRIs rule psychiatry and fill the pockets of Big Pharma. My brother has schizo d disorder (or so they say). I tried to apply your ideas to his life and it works, I pinpointed the dilemma, its manifestation, and how he dealt with it. He was a young teenager, but psychiatry quickly moved in and drugged him like no tomorrow.

    Now, years later (and after being hospitalized more than once), he is finally stable, yet he still never went back to school and remains without a job. The schizophrenic thinking has largely ceased, but the OCD is unrelenting and debilitating.

    My question for you is that, you mentioned that “The long-term use of antipsychotics increases the likelihood of the development of a chronic psychotic condition and significantly reduces the likelihood of recovery”

    Do you think that is what might have occurred in my brother’s case? I am not asking for medical advice so please do not shy away from my question, simply your opinion.

    You see, I feel that when the dilemma occurred, we could have dealt with it properly, but instead, they medicated him and now here we are years later, he is 32 years old, and I do not see a way back. Olanzapine is his staple and now they are trying SSRIs to deal with the OCD, which is not working at all, we have tried everything.

    He is highly functioning, incredibly intelligent, he could talk to your for hours about life and philosophy, but he is essentially stuck, and he has so much hope that another concoction could alleviate the OCD, but nothing seems to help.

    Any thoughts?

    Thank you kindly,

    Lisa
