A prescription for Xanax , for IBS was transformed into Bipolar for 13 horrific years . My ex showed absolutely no compassion, nor understanding , no support as he took 5 years to find his next supply . I married a Narcissist, had 3 sons by him, helped him build his work , by keeping “his” kids and house , being on demand for social events and travel.

The 80’s has been referred to as the “Society of Suicide” as folks were prescribed, mind altering RX that did much harm .

I’m a highly sensitive , empathic person, who had gobs of adverse childhood experiences , and complex post traumatic stress. All this as well as Domestic Abuse that was malignant , was ignored as were the disastrous side effects of the psychiatric RX which led to many physical ailments .

In 03 , I began to wake with the birth of our 1st grandson, and I was honored to help care for him. He became sick in my care, and I thought I had made him sick and I had to stop caring for him. His Mom took full advantage of my “ waking” , lacking any education or compassion for mental illness, began to dive a wedge between son and I .

This child was 11 years old when after 2 weeks of Xanax , 5 per day ( stressed out , not aware of intake ) when I had a chemically induced nervous breakdown ,, and received no therapy , nor did our other 2 .

Of course ex deferred , as fertile ground was provided him the divorce he wanted , and me as the target to gain his Mom’s support $$$.

Child Psychological Abuse , resulted, and with marriage and their own children , unhealed trauma , and a trauma bond with their Dad , has been a nightmare , though I’ve been off meds since 2005/6 , I present truth to the lies and abuse of a partner who bore no responsibility towards me.

Both my grandmothers were prescribed Valium , upon life changes and grief .

One lost her life to Valium and the other was labeled as I was , from the side effects and trauma of the RX and died prematurely .

I have cleared generational karma , and discovered a legal system that ignores the narcissist, who in addition to creating this fear , hatred by sons , has been stealing my income from mutually owned property and has tried and failed to buy my half since 2007 , using our sons and outsiders to help him in his effort to totally destroy me .

All this is coming to a conclusion, though I don’t sense any waking of sons and I’m going to be ok It has been hell on earth , this matrix of psychiatric, abuse with only money and power supporting the social and legal dictates of psychiatry for decades …

I’ve been using alternatives , testing myself, researching etc including adaptation of my sensitivity , emotional intelligence , and compassion. My desire to help those challenged by diagnosis of mental unwellness , has been draining , as I became aware of the narcissistic personality , and the abuses of our children , I now focus on that which has not helped in regards to our children, now grandchildren , but has helped many others, at age 71 have had many harsh lessons , I learned from, I wish to live in peace and harmony , in the mountain home I chose 13 years ago, and sometimes advise , having collected so much info , I am called up , 3 women in the last week; who have been physically abused , and not heard by our local deputies . Our community must send victims to surrounding cities , which I hope to help rectify .

Of note, was my ordering all my charts , medically and mentally.. my 1st axis was problematic marriage , 2nd was IBS , 3rd was Histrionic Personality!

Since when did martial problems , domestic abuse become a mental disorder ?

Of note was my psychiatrist attended the same men’s college as ex, and our lawyers had been partners without my awareness of this , ex was granted a “ no fault “ divorce in 2001.

I have cleared my name , my character restored , my health depleted , but holding much space and faith for balance and peace .

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
