  1. Such psychiatrists are arrogant beyond belief. You have to experience it to believe it. They did the same thing to my elderly mother. A very good book to read – a book I discovered through Dr. Healy’s book, “Pharmageddon” is “Limits to Medicine” by Ivan Illych.

    I found it an incredible book that changed my life. My husband, who is a doctor, could not get through it. There’s something drastically wrong with the training for doctors.

  2. Well, what can we say? As lay-persons, we’ve put up with quite a lot of the ‘blame it all on the patient or carer’ attitude described in this story but finding out that they will, just as easily, treat one of their own in the same way is astonishing. The fact that both father and daughter are remaining anonymous for their own safety, here in the UK, illustrates so vividly how the grip of ‘bad behaviour’ is moving like wildfire within our society. It is high time that governments get to grips with all that’s going on – and stamp it out whilst there is still some sort of a service left to save.

    • The government IS the problem. Actually it’s the Administrative Political Executive Society – the APES. It is high time that THE PEOPLE get to grips with all that’s going on – and stamp it out whilst there is still something left to save. Good luck!

  3. Have just contacted our MP asking him to read this father’s story and share the obvious concerns in parliamentary circles.

  4. The despair of being trapped in a situation/system where the capacity to challenge a diagnosis is destroyed because the challenge itself becomes part of the diagnosis…an appalling cycle from which it is impossible to escape. And when pointing out that the treatment is causing the ‘illness’ is interpreted as reinforcement of the validity of the ‘illness’ – this father and daughter were kidnapped in every sense. But to watch a beloved daughter deteriorate in front of your eyes, and be helpless seems the ultimate horror

    I await part 2

  5. Horrible but all too familiar to me at least.

    “I was now the front runner as the causative factor in their ever unfolding diagnostic fantasies.”

    Same thing happened to me when I challenged them about my wife. I have at times felt a bit guilty for not having been able to convince them what was happening to her, for letting my emotions get in the way too much when responding to their flat denials …but it seems that even as a Doctor it you didn’t really get any further than I did. In a way that makes me feel a little better.

    Thanks for sharing.. I’m very interested to hear what happened next.

  6. A scenario that brings tears to my eyes.
    I am sorry for your daughters tragic experience.
    It takes a lot of courage for a health professional, to come out and admit a major problem that other professionals ‘blatantly’ deny or refuse to accept.
    You know how your daughter was before she ingested these horrible meds and you have witnesses how they have impacted her.
    When many memories are deleted, you feel helpless not being able to help your loved one remember. One I can sincerely relate with.
    I am certain, many health professional have many similar stories, to this one.
    Thank you for having the courage and taking the time to let others appreciate the severity of these meds.
    Brain injuries, are very hard to diagnose.
    Just because you cannot visually see the harm these meds induce, it does not mean that the person living with the harm of that one poison they ingested, should be dismissed!
    When people are impacted by these meds, I have no doubts that they have a tremendous amount of difficulty articulating the harm they have caused.
    I hope something good comes out of this story.
    Mary, I hope those in power take note of this fathers letter. Let us know the outcome.
