Lorita Aikin

Lorita Aiken & Family

All from the extraction of her wisdom teeth!!!! From a pain killer to an antidepressant to Ambien which all leads to an attempted double murder/suicide…Lorita goes to court February 3…. From her blog we read….”On November 22, 2013 my beautiful wife, who led a perfectly normal life, as a loving mother, employee, and grad student with no prior history of mental health concerns or criminal behavior—tried to commit suicide and poison our two children with prescription medication. My wife and children were taken to the area hospitals in time and fortunately survived her psychotic break. However; I am saddened to report that my wife is currently in Virginia Beach City jail instead of in a hospital getting the necessary treatments to address her psychotic break.” Click link below to read full story of what happened to this family…

Military Using Trumped Up “Mental Health Issues” as Means to Avoid Paying Benefits

Chuck Luther

 Sergeant Chuck Luther

The best way to chemically create symptoms of “personality disorder” is to prescribe antidepressant medications!!!

PERSONALITY DISORDER DISCHARGES: IMPACT ON VETERANS’ BENEFITS

Wednesday, September 15, 2010
U. S. House of Representatives,
Committee on Veterans’ Affairs,
Washington, DC.

Sergeant Chuck Luther is a disturbing example of how the Army applies a personality disorder discharge. Luther was manning a guard tower in the Sunni triangle north of Baghdad when a mortar blast tossed him to the ground, slamming his head against the concrete, leaving him with migraine headaches so severe that vision would shut down in one eye. The other, he said, felt like someone was stabbing him in the eye with a knife. When Luther sought medical care, doctors at Camp Taji told him that his blindness was caused by preexisting personality disorder.

Luther had served a dozen years, passing eight screenings and winning 22 honors for his performance. When he rejected that diagnosis, Luther’s doctors ordered him confined to a closet. The sergeant was held in that closet for over a month, monitored around the clock by armed guards who enforced sleep deprivation—keeping the lights on all night, blasting heavy metal music at him all through the night. When the sergeant tried to escape, he was pinned down, injected with sleeping medication, and dragged back to the closet. Finally, after over a month, Luther was willing to sign anything—and he did, signing his name to a personality disorder discharge.

The sergeant was then whisked back to Fort Hood, where he learned the disturbing consequences of a PD discharge—no disability pay for the rest of his life, no long-term medical care, and he would now have to pay back a large chunk of his signing bonus. Luther was given a bill for $1,500 and told that if he did not pay it, the Army would garnish his wages and start assessing interest.

Since 2001, the military has pressed 22,600 soldiers into signing these personality disorder documents at a savings to the military of over $12.5 billion in disability and medical benefits. The sergeant’s story was part 3 in my series on personality disorder. In part 2, I interviewed military doctors who talked about the pressure on them to purposely misdiagnose wounded soldiers. One told a story of a soldier that came back with a chunk missing from his leg. His superiors pressed him to diagnose that as personality disorder.

In 2008, after several Congressmen expressed outrage at these discharges, President Bush signed a law requiring the Pentagon to study PD discharges. Five months later, the Pentagon delivered its report. Its conclusion: Not a single soldier had been wrongly diagnosed and not a single soldier had been wrongly discharged. During this 5-month review, Pentagon officials interviewed no one, not even the soldiers whose cases they were reviewing.

Three years ago, during a hearing on personality disorder discharges, military officials sat in these seats and vowed to this Committee to fix this problem. Three years later, nothing has happened.

[The prepared statement of Mr. Kors appears in the Appendix.]

The CHAIRMAN. Thank you, Mr. Kors.

Sergeant Luther, thank you for being here. Thank you for your service. I know it is not easy to talk about your personal situation, but we do appreciate it.

STATEMENT OF SERGEANT CHUCK LUTHER

Video testimony: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZd322Wyix8#t=30

Sergeant LUTHER. Mr. Chairman, Committee Members, and guests, thank you for the opportunity to speak and help my fellow soldiers and veterans by telling my story. I am here today to say that wearing the uniform for the U.S. Army is what defined me. I was, and still am, very proud of the service I gave to my country.

I entered the service on active-duty training status in February of 1988. I served 5 months on active-duty training status and then went on to 8 years of honorable Reserve service. I had a break in service and reentered the Reserves in 2003, and after serving 8 months honorably, I enlisted into the active-duty Army in October of 2004. I was stationed at Fort Hood, Texas. I served as an administrative specialist for 3 years and was given several awards for my leadership and service. I then went to retrain to become a 19D cavalry scout. Upon finishing school at Fort Knox, Kentucky, I returned to Fort Hood and was assigned to Comanche Troop, 1-7 CAV, 1st Brigade, and 1st Cavalry Division. I held the rank of Specialist ER when we left for Taji, Iraq, for a 15-month deployment.

We arrived in Iraq in November of 2006. We found ourselves in a very violent area at the beginning of the surge. On December 16, 2006, I was working in the company radio area monitoring the group that we had outside the forward operating base on an escort mission. I remember that day very clearly. The call came in from one of our staff sergeants in that patrol that they had been attacked and one of our vehicles have been destroyed and we had three killed and one wounded. As we were receiving the information, we could hear the small arms fire in the background as they tried to recover the dead and wounded soldiers.

I served as the training room noncommissioned officer, so I was asked to translate the combat numbers given over the radio to my commander and first sergeant for identity. As the information came over, I realized the truck that had been destroyed contained one of my close friend, Staff Sergeant David Staats, and one of the soldiers that I had taken under my wing, PFC Joseph Baines. I focused on the mission at hand and that evening, drove the first sergeant and the platoon sergeant of these soldiers to the mortuary affairs and helped unload their bodies from the vehicles bringing them home. I pushed through and the next morning we got word, as we were preparing to head to Baghdad to see the wounded soldier, that he also passed away. For the next 2 months, we lost several other soldiers from our squadron and two Iraqi interpreters.

On February 16, 2007, I was a member of the convoy that drove out four boats and members of our troop to conduct a river recon/mosque monitoring mission. After an uneventful drive out, unload boats, troops, and the soldiers, we headed back to Forward Operating Base (FOB) Taji. As we pulled back on the FOB, the call came over the radio that the unit of soldiers had been ambushed on the river mission. We had to quickly head to the drop-off location to assist. Upon arriving, we received small arms and large-scale fire from the enemy. We found one of our staff sergeants lying in the middle of the beach bleeding from both legs. One of the lieutenants had been shot in the arm and two Iraqi police officers had been killed.

We quickly put together two boats of troops and ammo to retrieve our soldiers. After heading up river, we received fire on our boat and the boat had capsized and we were stranded on an island for approximately 14 hours before being picked up. We have had limited ammunition and no radio communications. We all thought we were going to die that day.

Fourteen days to the day after that event, I was sent home for R&R leave. I was very angry, had severe headaches, was depressed and would cry at times. I have fought with my wife and family while I was at home. I had an episode where I broke my hand punching walls. After not being able to cope, I welcomed the trip back to Iraq. Upon returning to Iraq, I was promoted to sergeant and received my combat action badge for my part in the river mission firefights.

After returning from R&R leave, several people in my unit said that something had changed in me. I tried to pull it together, but I had trouble sleeping, had anger problems, severe headaches, nose bleeds, and chronic chest pain. I was living at the combat post x-ray. While there, I went to see the medics to get my inhaler for asthma refilled. I was sent back to the forward operating base, and upon returning to the aid station, the squadron aid station doctor was not present. I was told he was busy preparing for his triathlon he would be competing in after our deployment. I came back the next day and was seen.

I asked to see the chaplain because I was feeling very depressed and needed to talk. After talking to the chaplain, I was sent to the quarters for 2 days and then I was allowed to go back to the combat outpost. Around the first of April, I was in guard tower 1 alpha when a mortar landed between the tower and the wall around the outpost. When it exploded, it threw me down and I hit my right shoulder and head. I had severe ringing in my right ear with clear fluid coming from it and had problems seeing out of my right eye. After a few minutes, I went to the medics on the outpost and was given ibuprofen and water and sent back to duty. I started to have worse headaches and could not sleep.

They sent me back to the forward operating base and I was seen by the aid station by doctors and medics and then sent to the mental health center. I spoke with the lieutenant there who was a licensed clinical social worker. He had a 15-minute talk with me and gave me Celexia and Ambien. I was sent back to my quarters. The next 2 days, I began to get angry and hostile due to the medications, and I was sent back to the lieutenant colonel. He informed me that if I did not stop acting like this, that they were going to chapter me out under a 5-13, personality disorder discharge. I tried and went back to the aid station.

After several days on suicide watch for making the comment that if I had to live like this, I would rather be dead, I asked to be sent somewhere where I could get help and be able to understand what was wrong with me. I was told I could not go and demanded I be taken to the inspector general of the forward operating base. I was told by Captain Dewees that I was not going anywhere, and he called for all the medics, roughly six to ten. I was assaulted, held down, and had my pants ripped from my left thigh and given an injection of something that put me to sleep. When I awoke, I was strapped down to a combat litter and had a black eye and cuts on my wrists from the zip ties.

I eventually was untied and from that point forward for 5 weeks, I was held in a room that was 6 feet by 8 feet that had bed pans, old blankets and other old supplies. I had to sleep on a combat litter and had a wool blanket.

I was under guard 24/7, and on several occasions was told I was not allowed to use the phone or the Internet. I had slept through chow and asked to be taken to the chow hall or post exchange to get some food due to my medications. I was told no and given a fuel-soaked MRE to eat. I was constantly called a piece of crap, a faker, and other derogatory things. They kept the lights on and played all sorts of music from rap to heavy metal all night. The medics worked in shift, therefore, they didn’t sleep. They rotated. These are some of the tactics that we would use on insurgents that we captured to break them to get information or confessions.

I went through this for 4 weeks and the HHC (headquarters and headquarters company) commander told me to sign this discharge, and if I didn’t, they would keep me there for 6 more months and then kick me out when we got back to Fort Hood anyway. I said I didn’t have a personality disorder, and he told me if I signed the paperwork that I would get back home and get help and have all my benefits.

After the endless nights of sleep deprivation, harassment, and abuse, I finally signed just to get out of there. I was broken. It took 2 more weeks before I was flown out and brought to Fort Hood. Upon returning, I was told by the rear detachment acting first sergeant and commander to stay out of trouble and they would get me out of there. I was sent out to wait on my wife in the rain with two duffel bags and another carry bag. This was my welcome home from war.

I went home and I went to sleep, only to be awakened by three sergeants at my door saying I had to go back to the mental health due to me being suicidal and they had not had me checked out yet. I went to the R&R center at Fort Hood, Texas, and was seen by a lieutenant colonel who was a psychologist. He asked me why I was brought back from Iraq. I explained they said I had a personality disorder, and he disagreed. He shook his head and said that I had severe PTSD and combat exhaustion. He told me to get to sleep and rest and followup in a week with him. I was never allowed to go back to see him.

The ironic thing is that in my military records, I held three Army jobs and had a total of eight mental health screenings that all found me fit for duty. Also, I had never had a negative counseling or a negative incident in my 12 years of Reserve and active-duty career. Two weeks after getting back, I was discharged from the Army. I had my pay held and they took my saved up leave from me for repayment of unearned reenlistment bonus. I received a notice in the mail 3 weeks after my discharge from the Department of Finance that I owed the Army $1,501. Three months later, I went to the VA and I was told they could not see me for the mental health due to my preexisting disorder. I went back the next week and was seen by a psychologist.

After an hour with her, she scheduled me an appointment with a caseworker and then I had several follow-up mental health appointments. I was given my VA rating a year later in 2008 of 70 percent for post-traumatic stress disorder, knee injury, headaches, right shoulder, and asthma. Six months later, after several emergency room visits and neurology appointments, my rating was upgraded to 90 percent and I was given service-connection for traumatic brain injury.

In June of this year, after 2 years from the date that I filed a request with the Military Boards of Correction to have my discharge changed from a chapter 5-13 to a medical retirement, I was denied, even after the 3 years of VA medical documents and evidence from people that know me. I demand my discharge be changed and I receive the proper discharge for my service.

I have since founded Disposable Warriors and I have assisted many veterans and soldiers in a range of issues, from personality disorder diagnosis to soldiers on Active duty with diagnosed post-traumatic stress disorder that are not been treated or being discharged for misconduct other than honorable or bad conduct discharge, which also does not entitled them to VA benefits.

I want to say that it has been hell just to get my mind somewhat back on track and to exist. I have bouts of memory loss, agitation, flashbacks, paranoia, problems sleeping, and depression. I get angry every time I look at my DD-214 with the fraudulent personality disorder discharge. It cost me my contract jobs for private security after my exit from the Army. I had to get a job 3 days after I was kicked out of the Army to feed my wife and three children. I was taught for years in the Army the definition of integrity, honor, respect, and selfless service, all of which I gave to the Army but none was given back to me.

I hold two things very dear to me this day, and it comes from the noncommissioned officers creed: the accomplishment of my mission and the welfare of my soldiers. I am on a new battlefield, with a new mission, and I will, at all cost, take care of soldiers and their families. I love my country, I love my Army, but we cannot stand by and watch this to continue to happen.

At the very same time that this Committee was having Specialist John Town testify in front of them in 2007, I was abused, broken, and discharged for the very same thing this he was testifying about. Please do not let us be here in 3 years again with another story of shame. The lack of care and concern, coupled with the stigma of asking for help that we have allowed to be put on us, has to be totally removed. Then and only then will we see the veterans homelessness rate drop, the active duty in veterans suicide rate drop, and the skyrocketing of divorce decrease. The senior level of the Armed Forces get it. But they can talk about it, design plans for it, and make PowerPoints about it, but if it is not being enforced at the soldiers’ level, it is worthless.

In closing, I would like to state that I do not have, nor have I ever had a personality disorder. I suffer from
post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury from my service to my country while at war in Iraq. I raised my right hand on several occasions and swore to protect the Constitution at all cost. I did my part. Now it is time for the military to keep its part of the agreement that if I were injured, they would help me get back on my feet. Please help stop these wrongful discharges and help get our wounded servicemen and women back to service or back to their families. Thank you.

[The prepared statement of Sergeant Luther appears in the Appendix.]

The CHAIRMAN. Thank you both for such compelling testimony.

Mr. Kors, the last figure that both you and I had were from 2002 to 2007, stating that DoD discharged 22,600 veterans. Has that number gone down since we had the first hearing?

Mr. KORS. It was the 22,400. They have added 200 more to the list. But even that is tremendously outdated. That goes to 2007.

The CHAIRMAN. So we don’t know what has happened the last 3 years?

Mr. KORS. We don’t at all. I think the number of families who have been purposely cheated out of benefits is just rising and rising, without stop.

ANTIDEPRESSANT: YOUNG & RESTLESS STAR’S SON COMMITS SUICIDE

Julian st-john

Julian St. John, 24

Dede Moore Thank you for alerting us to this case.

It is obviously another antidepressant-induced “mental illness” resulting in suicide as spelled out in this comment from the article below:

“Julian, whom his parents say was a gifted artist, suffered from serious bouts of depression. Julian’s emotional toils caused him to become homeless, grapple with drug addiction and have run-ins with the authorities, according to his mother. He dealt with depression since childhood and was diagnosed with schizophrenia at the age of 18.”

Elevated Serotonin Connection to Suicide & Schizophrenia

Because of all the incredible serotonin lies the drug makers have saturated the world with so few are aware that schizophrenia, mania, depression, autism, suicide, cravings for alcohol and other drugs, etc, etc. are all the result of ELEVATED levels of serotonin. When antidepressants increase the serotonin high enough you get exactly what this poor young man went through! Much of that I covered in my September, 2004 testimony before the FDA: http://www.drugawareness.org/fda-testimony/dr-ann-blake-tracys-september-13-2004-to-the-fda

It will focus a lot of attention on the problems with antidepressants in our society. As you can see from the trailer  the school shootings are addressed as well.

Dr. Gregory Smith and his producer Sasha Knezev are doing an amazing job of addressing America’s real drug problem – prescription drugs. American Addict 1 was #1 on Netflix for several months this past year. Hopefully you have had a chance to see it already.

* Click here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCiDd2EFNwI#t=15 to see the trailer for American Addict 2:

* Click here www.ssristories.NET/school-shootings for a database of school shootings documenting antidepressants in each case

* Click here http://members.drugawareness.org/?p=4614 to listen to a three hour radio show on KTTK radio with Mills Crenshaw interviewing me (one of my most detailed shows ever) on the subject of school shootings, problems with the antidepressants and history of these drugs – MUCH of which I will guarantee you have never heard before no matter how much you thought you knew about antidepressants and serotonin.

ANTIDEPRESSANT & AMBIEN SUICIDE: In Memory of Bobby DiFondi

Bobby DiFondi

Bobby DiFondi & His Favorite Girl


I will tell you a bit of my story. It’s even hard to write about it.

His name is /was Bobby DiFondi and I knew him since I was 12 yrs old. He was 15 when we met. He was my first love. We reconnected 30yrs later when he sought me out on Myspace.

He had a great personality, loved animals, loved my daughter, loved to cook….we loved to cuddle and kiss. We fell in love all over again since high school. I thought he was my soul mate. He lived in AZ and I lived in LA.

The story is so long and I am better on the phone. Yes he owned a gun but had promised that his friend took it from him.

He was treated with Ambien after an elbow surgery, the pain medicine didn’t allow him to sleep so they gave him Ambien. He too would drink with it. I believe he was also on an anti-depressant. [And antidepressants are often prescribed for pain and after surgery plus they cause overwhelming cravings for alcohol.] It’s hard to know when you are far away. We were going back and forth. He would slur his words on the phone. So I thought he had been drinking….he never told me when he began taking Ambien.

He had a job at Frito Lay for 15yrs with a perfect driving record and even won an award for a million miles of safe driving. He owned a home and had 2 dogs, a cat and three turtles. He took care of them wonderfully. He was generous and kind.
But then all those wonderful traits started going out the window. He would break up with me constantly, was always feeling confused, would hold grudges about small things, saying that I didn’t praise him enough, saying I said things that I didn’t say, canceling trips on me, turning on me and then missing me.

I suffered for one year and a half with this bizarre behavior. I thought it was the booze. I didn’t want to be with a drinker, he hid that from me along with the pills and who knows what else. Yet I still loved the other man and wanted him back..he was in my every thought.

I finally realized, after he accused me of ruining other relationships for him which wasn’t true, that he didn’t care and I had to move on. I told him I was moving back to Italy, which I now regret. But then he called and we had a nice conversation and he said he would come to see me so we could talk things out. I was hopeful, he sounded good. He even said he would go to AA and got rid of his pain pill popping friend.

He said he was off all pills but it wasn’t true. He didn’t call me when he said he would. I thought he was playing games again, after 9 days of not hearing from him I was very sad. But then I got the call to let me know he had shot himself, then I just wanted to die..I haven’t stopped crying since. My poor beautiful daughter thought she was going to lose her mom. How could I live through this?

His family now blames me and Hates me. so much more to write. Yes they later found letters from 10 mo prior when I had called 911 because on the phone he threatened to commit suicide and wouldn’t answer the phone. There were also letters tucked away from that night and the night before. yes they said it was hard to understand….I never saw them….I couldn’t handle it. They didn’t want me at the service.

Also he was stringing me along while trying to pick up other girls and that’s also why I was mad when I found out. We were his world before but not anymore. It was as if something very evil took over. It wasn’t him anymore. I am still in shock and grief stricken.

I tried to warn his mother and brother that I knew something was wrong but no one listened. Blaming someone for someone else’s life is so cruel especially when I would have given my life for him.

Yes I know that many times they sleep walk and take more pills being completely unaware of it. Just 2 months before this he drove in his sleep and hit a tree. He woke up surrounded by police and didn’t know how he got there. He told me about it one week later. He didn’t want his folks to know but his brothers knew. All he remembered was going to sleep.

How can they give this to people? not only Ambien , but Xanax, Lunesta, Antidepressants? They all have these effects. Look at these school shooters how they don’t feel anything. That is because they are medicated or in withdrawal from antidepressants. www.ssristories.NET/school-shootings

Thank God for all those getting the truth out! Sorry if I have run on sentences. I have an 8 page letter I wrote his mom but never sent. At this point I just need to stay away from them. We should have stuck together to grieve, we share the same pain and the same love for him. I just think we are all in shock. I can’t even fathom the idea of being with another. I am so scared now.
I have a song I wrote for him I will attach called “Without You”. It is in a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91-huug2X9s

Look at just this small database of tragedies: www.ssristories.NET. How I wish we could bring them all back. I am sure we would all have done something different. Thank you for all the work and information you make available for all of us who are suffering.

Laura Fuino

11/13/2014
Note from Ann Blake Tracy: A condition known as a REM Sleep Disorder (RBD) is known to produce both murder and suicide as the patient acts out in a sleep state their worst nightmare. RBD is what is often behind these suicides and murder suicides associated with the use of antidepressants.

Although Ambien is the drug that has gotten more press on this disorder, 86% of those being diagnosed with RBD are currently taking an antidepressant. And in the past RBD was known mainly as a drug withdrawal state. With this information it should be clear that mixing Ambien with an antidepressant would increase the chances of RBD as would withdrawal from these drugs. Therefore a very slow and gradual withdrawal would be the safest way to withdraw from these drugs.

PROZAC>PAXIL>LUVOX: In Memoriam to Bill Farar on His Birthday 11/12/1946

10805691 1492509007699033 2982714197898918687 n(1)

Happy Birthday to Bill Farar 11/12/46

Taken from his family and friends by Prozac, Paxil and Luvox …

(sadly Bill is one of far too many taken by Pharma greed

from my small hometown in Safford, AZ…Ann Blake Tracy)

William Casey Farar 11/12/1946-12/31/1997

December 31, 1997 is a day in my life and the lives of many others that will never be forgotten. The life of my “daddy”, Bill Farar, was cut much too short. Leaving a legacy of one of the greatest high school teachers (Spanish, DECA, Drivers Education), a local business owner (Bill’s Baseball Cards), an avid car salesman, a profound Announcer at all of the high school football games, a husband, a brother, a father to six children, and a “papa” to seven grandchildren (and my greatest fan)…all of these at the time of his death. As you can see he was a multi-tasker who exemplified nothing shy of pure “passion” in everything he ever attempted/accomplished in his lifetime. What a beautiful legacy he left for all of us to remember and cherish!

You may ask why am I sharing this? I was 18 yrs old and in my first year of college. My dad was nothing short of my “loudest and greatest” fan. His support and appearance driving all over the state to every volleyball match, basketball game, or track and field meet inspired me to continue to pursue my track and field dreams. On New Years Eve, my freshman year, my heart was shattered and my dreams were broken. The man behind the scenes, who was a part of the passion and drive, would no longer be apart of my journey. The loudest voice in the stands as I raced over each hurdle was now just dust in the wind! Devastation is an understatement to describe that day and the years to follow.

His suicide, so out of character, a shock to a small community where to this day it was one of the largest funerals with over 1,500 in attendence. Taking a 12 gauge shot gun to his abdomen, and a notebook full of suicide letters for each of us children and my mother found nearby, were all he left us with besides a legacy of man with pure passion for life! Everything seemed surreal and nothing made sense.

My mother was contacted later by activists againat SSRI’s. I was selected and chosen for a scholarship in English to spend an entire semester researching a subject of choice and presenting the final project, an essay, to a commmitee or board of community members. I immediately felt the need to research the impact of SSRI’s and the link to suicide and depression. Not only was it a huge part if my healing process less than a year later, but it provided every answer to all this questions that raced through ny mind and still do. My anger or sadness towards the man I lived more than anything became channeled towards multiple drug companies that are taking the lives of so many innocent people daily, still 17 years later. The people we trust with our health and our well being, are being flourished by multi billion dollar drug companies and their drug reps to push these SSRI’s to be patients. They are being sold as “happy pills”, only to alter all of the chemicals in the brain and create a disaster. Each disaster is different as each human brain is different and no “pill or doseage” can be compatible for one patient and their chemical or genetic make-up as it is the next.

Why don’t they prescribe meth amphetamines or cocaine to every patient who is suffering from complaints of lack of energy, caused from fibromyalgia? What about pure MDMA, aka esctacy known as a stimulant to increase the chemicals which create “happy” or “sad” emotions, to increase happiness in a clinically depressed person? The type of strain or exact same piece of marijuana can have a total different effect on two people the exact same size who consume it the exact same way. The same glass of wine or shot of liquor can have two different effects on two different people. The tolerance of pain medication for two people the exact same size, height and weight, can have completely different effects on each person who consume the medication the same way. No medication or drug is the correct fix for one person as it is the next. There is no prejudice or no difference when applying this thought process to SSRI’s also known as “anti-depressants”. However, the risks and result or outcome of the problem is much more deadly and violent than any other street drug, and these are legal drugs being prescribed by legal Dr.’s and Psychiatrists who are licensed and trained, specializing in the work they do. Why then are so many Dr.’s after years of the medication being in the market, still treating patients with these deadly combinations? Perhaps lack of knowledge, looking for an easy fix (maybe for one not for all), the percs that are offered by so many of these reps, and really how many of these doctors actually care or are aware of the dangers and effects of these medications. Why have Countries not banned these drug companies who continue to make billions and then settle out if court with gag orders for millions just to protect their name and continue to be a part of so many violent acts of rage that kill hundreds, suicides that go unnoticed, and multiple deaths every hour taking place all over the world?

My dad was prescribed these lethal drugs, which have been approved by the FDA, in a short period of three months prior to his suicide. The FNP first started with prescribing Prozac and attempted different doses and immediately stopped the medication without tapering. Then after little success or complaints of being more depressed, quickly changed to Paxil and the doseages were increased rapidly in attempt to find “the right dose”, still no results, the medication was immediately stopped again without tapering. The final deadly combination of Luvox turned in to a disaster, and the amount prescribed fluctuated and then increased rapidly. Even after multiple complaints and a complete 360 in his personality changes, the doseage continued to increase. I remember being home for Christmas break, less than two weeks before his death, and seeing him during a small rage. It was like he was possessed by a demon, with sweat pouring down his face, his eyes glassed over, and a look on his face that I have never seen before. Still seventeen years later, I have a clear picture, of this man who was not my father, in my head. At the time, I had been away at College and not aware of any medications he had been taking, and I was terrified of him. I can only imagine the hours before his death, the thoughts racing his mind, the tears streaming down his face, and the person he was while writing his last letters. Perhaps seeing him in this “demon like stage”, and these horrific images, were made known to me as a comfort or answers to his suicide. I know my dad was not the man that raised me for eighteen years, when he pulled the trigger that cold New Years Eve Day. The passion he had for life, and the love for his family, was far more important to him than anything in this world. Yet the side effects of Luvox was far more overpowering than any of his human characteristics or mind control. The chemicals in his brain were altered so far beyond his control, that ability to take control of his thoughts was no longer possible. Compare it to a person high on street drugs or a blackout drunk in the bar, unfortunately as family we were unaware of all these deadly side effects or the signs leading up to it, to help him before it was too late.

This happens way too frequently. Three years ago my Uncle from my mother’s aide if the family ended his life in a bizarre suicide sovout of character ad well. He had been on Luvox also for a short period of time and the descriptions of his death are unfathomable for his character. Unlike my father who was the outgoing, outspoken, extrovert, my Uncle was so calm, shy, soft spoken, again with a deep love for family and his career. With no signs leading to his suicide, he was a large man in stature with a huge heart, and crawled underneath a small travel trailor with barely enough room for him to scoot his large body. With ducktape he covered his mouth, and also bound his hands together, and suffocated in a painful death. The family thought he was missing and searched for hours before they found his limp body underneath the trailor on the side of the house. The temperature and AZ heat made it not possible for family to even have an open casket viewing. A great man who left behind his wife, two children, and grandchildren with nothing but questions we all ask ourselves in these bizarre deaths/suicides.

For those who have researched and have knowledge about these medications, I call the deadliest drugs on the market, it is clear that the medication is to blame and not the person or their loved ones.

Well, how can we stop this epedimic? Share the knowledge, Dr. Ann Blake-Tracy has educated millions by sharing these stories and then other people sharing their stories through the education she has provided. She has provided peace and comfort for those loved ones left behind with the answers they may have never received. The comfort she provides not only the loved ones that become victims of the SSRI’s, but the other innocent victims of the unfortunate who murders hundreds and even take their own lives.

I am grateful the demons created by these medications did not take the life of my mother or siblings before the life of my father. So easily, the will to not live but the passion for his family, he could have taken our lives as well. Just like the school killings where the students target either chosen people or innocent bystanders before their own lives.

Yet, as millions are uneducated about these lethal drugs in the market, society blames the person behind the trigger and not the manufacturer that continues to make billions, while millions suffer every minute or every hour all over the world. Please share your story or the knowledge you may have with others so more families do not have to learn how they could have saved their loves ones. Help prevent others of falling into the trap that Physicians may potentially place another beautiful soul!

Thank you Dr. Ann Blake-Tracy for dedicating your life to helping educate others and comforting loved ones left behind. Let’s pray that the FDA can take these drugs off the market! As we all know, no amount of money can bring back the death of a loved one!

A happy birthday message from his daughter Shantelle: HAPPY BIRTHDAY “DADDY” (SENOR LEJOS/MR. FARAR/COACH FARAR/WILD BILL), to the greatest man that ever touched my life! You instilled things that will never be taken away from me.

My heart still aches but I know I will hold you again and feel your warm embrace. The love you shared and the impact you had on students/community is what makes the fact you are no longer here easier to go on.

I’ll never forget the good times. You were my greatest fan, you made the crowd come alive, and you pushed me to excel and never give up on my dreams. I wish you were here for so many things, but that is when you show me a sign that you are there and not far away: a rainbow, rain drops, special heart rocks, or your other sacred ways! Thank you for being my guardian angel and sparing my life at times I should not have survived.

God needed you for greater work, and he knew we would miss you but that we would survive. You are the best daddy I could have asked for and the years I spent being able to call myself a “daddy’s girl” have left footprints on my heart forever.

I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ALL THE STARS IN THE SKY!!

ANTIDEPRESSANT PLUS TWO MORE: Another Great Comedian, Robin Williams, Lost to Murder by Prescription

Robin Williams3

Robin Williams 1951 – 2014

The question remains and is important enough to be shouted…HOW MANY MEDS CAN ONE TAKE WITH SUICIDE WARNINGS BEFORE THE SYNERGISTIC EFFECTS PRODUCE SUICIDE WHEN THOSE WARNINGS INDICATE ONLY ONE OF THE MEDICATIONS IS ENOUGH TO PRODUCE SUICIDE AS A RESULT???!!!!

From the antiparkinson drug Robin Williams was given, Levadopa, the package insert warnings read: “All patients should be observed carefully for the development of depression with concomitant suicidal tendencies”

The same warning of suicide comes with the Seroquel he was given which is an antipsychotic drug often given for sleep.

And of course this same suicide warning comes with the antidepressant found in his system, Remeron, or “any antidepressant ever approved by the FDA or any antidepressant to ever be approved by the FDA in the future” ….. the wording of such a comprehensive warning still rings in my ears as I stood in anticipation to hear the conclusion of the FDA Advisory Committee a decade ago when it was first issued. Sadly that warning was not comprehensive enough to save one of America’s most beloved comedians.

His toxicology confirmed all I said the same day he died – http://www.drugawareness.org/antidepressant-robin-williams-suicide-or-murder/

ANTIDEPRESSANT: UT Teacher Commits Suicide After Being Falsely Accused of Abuse

David Papadakos

David Alan Papacakos

The parents of David Alan Papadakos have filed a suit for the death of their son after he committed suicide when falsely accused of sexual abuse by one of his students, a foster child.

My comment: Good for the parents for filing this! Besides the fact that they may have put him on an antidepressant to “cope” with this case which could have greatly contributed to his suicide and if it is not just the picture and he has a misshapen head due to a head injury that antidepressants should never have been given to him because they should all be contraindicated for those with head injury! We do also know that the large majority of foster children are on mind altering drugs and most of the drugs they are on can produce false accusations of abuse. Such was the case in the mid 90’s in Winatchee, WA where the state had to pay out $100 Million for wrongful imprisonment of 43 people including the pastor of a local church and the LDS Primary President and her husband. (A special was done on 48 Hours with an interview with the oldest daughter of this couple who ran from the Division of Family Services when she and all her siblings were placed in foster care and she did not want to be medicated so she could help free her parents.)

But when you add that information on the mass drugging of the foster children to the fact that almost as many DCFS workers are on the same mind altering drugs it is no wonder they can dream up so many of these cases as well. The reports that have come in from them about their own bizarre actions while in those positions and delusional on the antidepressants would and should shock the world!

ANTIDEPRESSANT-INDUCED FALSE MEMORY SYNDROME

 

The fact is that hardly anyone had ever heard the term False Memory Syndrome until Prozac hit the market. The parents of Roseanne Barr were falsely accused of abuse by her while she was on Prozac. She went on Oprah in 2009 and said it was the biggest mistake of her life and was caused by the medication.

This is producing so many problems in our society! This man should not have lost his life over this. Why isn’t more information out there about it? It needs to be. I included it in my book on SSRI antidepressants, “Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? – Our Serotonin Nightmare,” first printed back in 1994 with revised editions in 2001 and 2014. The information has been out there that long!

ANTIDEPRESSANT: Irish Man Hacks Parents to Death

 

Kathleen and Jimmy Cuddihy

Kathleen and Jimmy Cuddihy

Ireland: Elderly couple hacked to death while their 42 year old “depressed” son, Julian, has been arrested for the brutal murder as the rest of the world is rapidly catching up with the US in these horrific antidepressant-induced nightmares!

From the original article below find all of the highlighted parts of the article that make it clear what the all too typical scenario is … the mother is a nurse, the son is “depressed” which next leads to a trip to the doctor for medication which makes the son change from the mild mannered man he has always been to a raging drug-induced maniac hell bent on murder and listed in the antidepressant side effects as “homicidal ideation.” And when found he is in his parents car about to drive into the lake in a suicide attempt…also listed in the package insert as a reaction to the medication listed as “suicidal ideation” – how can it really be all that difficult to figure out?

Amazing that when a lie is told long enough the people really do believe the drugs are helping in spite of the evidence glaring at them as bright as the noon day sun that the opposite is true!

Excerpts from original article below:

“The elderly victims had suffered multiple wounds. A hatchet was found at the scene.

“The mechanical engineer had worked in recent years in both Dublin and England and had been studying more recently at the University of Limerick. Friends who saw him earlier in the week said he appeared “angry and agitated”, which they found odd.

“Julian is a normally quiet soul, well educated and articulate but he just didn’t appear to be himself in recent days,” said one friend.

“It’s understood he had been suffering from depression.

Kathleen was a retired nurse and paramedic.”

MEDICATION: Utah State Prison – Second Suicide in a Week

 

Utah Prison

UTAH STATE PRISON – SECOND SUICIDE THIS WEEK

This is an atrocity that needs to end!!! The mass drugging in prisons is as out of control as the mass drugging of foster children! Do prisons get kick backs from drug companies too? It sure appears that way. And to make matters worse a huge percentage of our prison population are there because of reactions they have had to these antidepressants.

Dr. Arthur Egelman is a psychiatrist I mentioned in my book as the FDA overseer of the first MAOI Parnate, who left the FDA when they took that drug off the market and then put it back out with many new warnings added to the drug. He stated that no matter how many warnings were being issued patients would die from the side effects and he wanted no part of that. About a decade ago I spoke with Dr. Egelman who wanted to go public about this mass drugging of prisoners. He was upset that he would work so hard to wean prisoners off antidepressants who clearly did not need to be on the drugs and the prison would put them right back on the drugs. He was extremely upset by this!

But when we have children reacting to these medications who are being incarcerated for crimes they are not responsible for due to involuntary intoxication…and then rather than acknowledge the reactions and weaning them off the offending medications they are being moved from mental hospitals to prisons?!!! This is SO wrong! I do hope that this family does something about what has happened to their son, brother, loved one! Read below to see the story with a link to the original article:

NO DIFFERENT THAN DACHAU!!!

Ryan Allison, 22, “was alone in a camera-equipped cell at the Olympus facility, which houses inmates who are mentally ill.

“Though initially sentenced to the Utah State Hospital for treatment, prison officials said Allison’s “disruptive behavior there” [drug-induced disruptive behavior] led him to the prison.

“Officers were preparing to enter the cell after seeing Ryan P. Allison, 22, repeatedly bang his head on the concrete floor at about 7:30 a.m. Allison then dove head first from the sink onto the floor and could not be revived, according to prison officials.”

This young man would have double the chance of suicidal reactions to an antidepressant according to FDA warnings. The behavior described just before his death is a medication reaction called akathisia, a very agitated state. Akathisia is a Greek term meaning “can’t sit still” …. basically adrenalin in overdrive.

And remember that this is the second suicide at this prison, both obviously involving medication, in a week!!!!!!
