Voices in the Wilderness

I am writing as a survivor of psychiatric deception and oppression. I have no vested interest. All I want is a voice! I could be seen as a successful ‘ ex user’ of psychiatry for almost 30 years because I was living at home for most of the time after I was totally misunderstood by psychiatrists and doctors. There are many more like me. You can read about them everyday on social media.

I was perceived as a ‘success’ as I developed more and more serious physical, mental, emotional and spiritual adverse effects from three powerful substances I consumed as prescribed for over a decade and a half. I encountered psychiatry in the late seventies and did not find my freedom until the year 2000 when I swallowed the last portion of Lithium, which I was told I needed to take for the rest of my life! I am drug free for 16 years. I am living the life I would have lived if I had never encountered psychiatry in the first place complete with my beautiful mind intact!

When those who have found the medical model to be seriously harmful, they are considered to be ‘unable’ by most psychiatrists. These same psychiatrists have no biological tests to show that anyone has what they refer to as a ‘mental illness’ in the first place, yet they daily force people to receive powerful drugs which can be very harmful. All you have to do is read the adverse effects of psychiatric drugs to find out! Even other prescription drugs can have psychiatric serious effects also.

We are told to keep quiet and to not allow other people harmed by drugs to become free also but where does that leave us and all those who have died too young to have a voice?!
