Typically blaming the individual ( patient )

Let’s talk about his extreme work and travel load; his body clock was wayyyyyy off .
Health was very vulnerable and induced in to drugging legally by medical professions

Heath’s death really affected me , for I had watched Broke Back Mountain and witnessed a very beautiful soul 💯❤️
I saw the results of long term use on the bodies of others in groups I tried .
They were not helpful to me ; these groups …. folks dedicated to the APA and Big Pharma is going to help them instead of noting the alteration of your life and destruction of all you hold dear because you’re a psychiatric patient .
An article recently published in BJ Psych Open investigates the adverse effects of SSRIs and other antidepressants when taken for longer than five years.
Narinder Bansal, Mohammad Hudda, Rupert A. Payne, Daniel J. Smith, David Kessler, and Nicola Wiles utilized over 200,000 individual medical records collected by UK Biobank between 2006 and 2010.
“Antidepressants are one of the most widely prescribed drugs. Seventy million prescriptions were dispensed in 2018, amounting to nearly a doubling of prescriptions in a decade. This striking rise in prescribing is attributed to long-term treatment rather than an increased incidence of depression, and these trends are not limited to the UK,” the authors write. “However, little is known about the health consequences of long-term antidepressant treatment.”
Lithium is a metal , and I’m allergic to metals . This did not discourage the psychiatrist from prescribing it though .
I had to get blood work often because it can adversely affect the kidneys
I couldn’t go in the sun 🌞
When I complained about the adverse side effects the lithium was changed to eskilith a coated lithium .
A new meta-analysis of modern trials of lithium found no evidence that the drug prevents suicide or non-fatal suicidal behaviors. The study included 12 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing lithium to placebo or usual care for mood disorders encompassing 2578 participants. The researchers found that the difference between lithium and placebo for all suicide-related outcomes was not statistically significant.
The study was led by Joanna Moncrieff at University College London, who recently garnered media attention for a review that debunked the low serotonin (“chemical imbalance”) theory of depression.
Reached for comment via email, Moncrieff said:
“The idea that lithium prevents suicide has added to its mystique and helped propagate the idea that lithium is a highly specific and effective treatment. But it never made any sense. Lithium is a highly toxic, sedative substance. It dulls emotions, which might reduce suicidal thoughts, but we know that many psychiatric drugs have this emotion-dulling effect and yet do not reduce suicidal behavior.”
Psychiatry’s Nightmarish 2022 & Its Hysterical Defense Against Criticism, by Bruce Levine, PhD
Psychiatry’s defenders claim to be open to criticism, as long as it doesn’t acknowledge the reality that psychiatry lacks scientific merit.
“In reality, psychiatric diagnosing is a kind of spiritual profiling that can destroy lives and frequently does.” — Peter Breggin, Psychiatrist
“Perhaps worst of all, these diagnoses almost inevitably lead to the prescription of psychiatric medication to you or your child. Psychiatric drugs are toxins to the brain; they work by disabling the brain.”
— Peter Breggin, Psychiatrist
The human brain is the most complex organ ever created. To disable it deliberately is a terrible act of violence. If doctors do not know that toxic drugs damage the brain it is beyond time to become aware. Doctors first do no harm
We admitted Tom to a developmental disabilities unit at a psychiatric hospital nearby in January 31 – as you know things had been very hard for a long time. They were getting really difficult at school as well. Meds weren’t helping and they kept prescribing one on top of another without taking the prior one away, because they’re psych meds and you have to taper and there’s no time for that when he’s in crisis. He’s been ready to be discharged for about 2 1/2 months, in my opinion. The hospital team suggests residential placement – since nearly the time he was admitted. He’s doing so well now and the hospital team are seeing that he’s now having aggression because he’s sort of pushing back against the very restrictive environment. But there was no in home support to be found (no applicants) and wait lists a mile long with no guesstimate as to when a spot would be available….so he’s just been living in the hospital. He asks to come home almost every day and for sure when we visit. He even asks for his school teachers and speech and OT and school social worker. I miss him so much.
