Mad In America
This May, I attracted the attention of a local police informant in my area due to my extreme dissociation and need to blend in/impress other people due to nearly three decades of trauma. I was a victim of child abuse (primarily emotional and financial), aseveral abusive relationships (some extremely violent which I have been in therapy for constantly since the age of 17), and abuse by trauma endured at two hospitals in Tennessee. (I was required to eat undercooked chicken in order to be deemed safe to leave, which gave me food poisoning, and not permitted medication for the diarrhea without showing my bowel movements to the inattentive staff. I was also isolated and mistreated due to my LGBT status, and not informed of my permission to decline medications). Due to this trauma, I chose to get a tubal ligation at the advice of doctors and my abusive mother in my early 20s.
In spite of a high intelligence that placed me in the top percentile of the gifted program in elementary school, I have been unable to hold a steady job and my mother, in spite of having committed fraud to do so, was appointed my rep payee. I eventually got in touch with doctors who were more understanding of my situation, but now feel afraid to return to my home state. The informant whom I upset threatened me with institutionalization in my home state, and I do not doubt the possibility as whenever my then fiancée and myself attempted to report this man’s harassment, as well as multiple incidents of violence, vandalism, and burglary in our then home town, which was a high crime area. The police refused to even take my reports of sexual assault by this man and a friend of his with my underwear from the abuse, all because I was considered mentally I’ll and had a reputation in

Anyhow psychiatry kills. This is its purpose. Psychiatrists make no mistakes and they don’t cause random, “unfavorable” effects. They know, how to destroy the humans nature. They transform a human to an alive nothing. And it quite satisfies them. They are the criminals. And we have to struggle with them as with the criminals. Don’t lie to yourselves, gentlemen.

Dennis Deangelo GLENN FREY MURDERED BY BIG PHARMA
January 20, 2016 TRUTH TALK NEWS Leave a comment
On Tuesday, January 19, I learned singer/songwriter Glenn Frey died as a result of side effects from rheumatoid arthritis medication while in a New York Hospital. Glenn Frey had colitis and pneumonia at the time of his death.
While there are many possibilities for the medications he could have been taking for RA, it sounds like the DMARDs inhibited his immune system so much, he couldn’t fight a secondary infection.
In my opinion, (if I know about this) the doctors should have known and taken proper precautions.
BEWARE OF BIG PHARMA! …

Dennis Deangelo the level of ignorance is paltible hi! My name is tammi and I am mentally ill. I have a fabulous mental illness called bi-polar disorder. Twenty five years ago I was finally diagnosed, and I thought hallelujah!! Only to be subjected to YEARS of what I like to call the “antidepressant flavor of the month club”. So for six weeks you ramp up to the right amount of the drug, get ALL the side effects…………but no good things! So then you ramp down only to start on the next drug. I was fortunate enough to find a wonderful psychiatrist about seven years ago who let me in on the secret that most antidepressants don’t work for people like me. So now, many drupg combinations later, I have become very drug resistant. In fact, NOTHING works now. My next and really only choice is to have ECT, or electroshock therapy. I have no insurance. My husband makes too much for public assistance………….what a joke………..and I do the only thing I can, which is paint. We have no extra money for anything, let alone insurance. I need 1800.00 because that will pay for three months of coverage for me and then I can get the ECT. my quality of life right now is worse than bad. I have barely left the couch in four months. …December 5, 2016 at 11:35 am #85678
Donny Hajal The institution of psychiatry grew up in the 19th century during the emergence and consolidation of industrial capitalism. Its function was to deal with abnormal and bizarre behaviour which, without breaking the law, did not comply with the demands of the new social and economic order. Its association with medicine concealed this political function of social control by endowing it with the objectivity and neutrality of science. The medical model of mental disorder has served ever since to obscure the social processes that produce and define deviance by locating problems in individual biology. This obsfucation lends itself to the perpetuation of the established order by side-stepping the challenge that is implicit in deviant behaviour and thereby undermining a source of criticism and opposition. During the 20th century, a fierce attack on psychiatry has condemned this misleading medical characterisation of the problems of living and the repressive measures… http://www.academyanalyticarts.org/moncrieff-psychiatric-imperialismDecember 5, 2016 at 11:38 am #85679
Robin Matisse Sky I found your blog Hypothyroid Mom and feel a need to contact you directly. I was an energetic successful person and in one year I fell down and literally broke. I was put in a mental health ward because I went days without sleeping, felt so tired I couldn’t function and found myself delusional and couldn’t stop the words running through my head. I was diagnosed bipolar and drugged up with medication. I saw the line of bipolar patients waiting every morning in the psych ward for electric shock therapy. The only thing that saved me from electric shock was my mother yelling NO.
For four years I was drugged up so bad that my mind wasn’t right. I told the psychiatrists and doctors that something wasn’t right with me. From 110 pounds my weight went up to 245. I was so tired, suffered pains from fibromyalgia. My heart rate was pounding at 155 and my blood pressure was through the roof. They just kept telling me I was bipolar and that I was a hypochondriac.
Finally after 4 years of bipolar medications to the max, a close family member was diagnosed with hypothyroidism so my doctor tested me too. I have a family history of thyroid disease. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I’ve suffered so many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism you list on your blog for so many years.
Every single time I attend a bipolar support …

Lametamor, I am really struggling to wrap my head around your electroshock longing.I have to admit, in thirty plus years inside the mental health system, I have never ECT spoken of in that context. lolDecember 19, 2016 at 1:51 pm #86365
