I have only been away for a week but it has been fabulous to get away from everything. For the past years I have not gone away because of caring responsibilities what with my father who had Alzheimers, my younger daughter and now my elder daughter Elizabeth. A week has gone so quickly but it has made me think that the lifestyle in the UK is not good. I spend most of my time at work and travelling in unpleasant conditions on underground, rushing around all the time. In Sicily it is fabulous and a healthy lifestyle. The markets have an abundance of fresh food that even tastes better such as the vegetable and fruit. You should see the cakes as well and the ice cream. Everywhere is surrounded by mountains and sea where I stayed in Palermo. The weather was fantastic and people were outside rather than stuck in in front of the TV. I thought to myself this lifestyle would suit Elizabeth. This is the sort of place she could get well again.
There were no messages from Elizabeth when I got home. I believe that she is being discouraged from speaking to me by staff at Cambian Four Star Wards possibly in conjunction with Enfield and legal teams.
They have tried to replace me as Nearest Relative and failed. I believe they are trying to do this again and like a religious cult they are preventing my daughter or discouraging her from telephoning me. YOu have to go through the office and she told me herself she is being watched every 15 minutes. What kind of care is this!
They take away someone’s freedom and treat them worse than prisoners and then come between familiies – especially if someone dares to complain about the shocking care on offer of drug pushing!
I hope one day Elizabeth can read my website and I believe strongly that it is the right thing to do – if noone dares to speak out then what hope is there for any change for the better. There are more and more professionals speaking out against these drugs and I am not saying that Elizabeth should suddenly stop taking them. I am not a doctor but h ave done extensive research and know it is not possible to just come off the drugs and not advisable unless you have a professional involved in helping. I would willingly send Elizabeth to America where there are several centres set up where nutrition and alternative remedies are used – where patients are treated like students and treated with respect unlike here where the teams do nothing but control and force someone to take the drugs., I am sure these centres do not just take someone off the drugs either but do know that it is possible for someone to be reduced and I fully know that the drugs themselves can lead to the shortening of life of someone taking them by 20 years or so and can lead to long term health problems. This is my concern as a mother and I am also most concerned about what is going on right now at CAmbian and h ow the phone is never working.
So far Enfield and SLAM Mental Health Services/legal teams have tried to take me to court giving me 1 day notice to replace me as Nearest Relative because I did not agree to Section 3 which is for 6 months. Under a section they can just force the drugs continually against someone’s wishes.
In Wales there is holistic care so I believe by law and this is what I want and I am going to a conference soon run by Chy-~Sawel who want to set up an alternative care centre in the UK and so do Soteria. The sooner the better as far as I am concerned. Orthomolecular care is best and Elizabeth was responding to this well. The care under the NHS where they spend a fortune on lovely AGMs with wine and drink flowing, where the spend a fortune on pushing drugs to psychiatric patients that do not even work. This is not care – the drugs do not solve the problem and for some people who are called Treatment REsistant it is because they have not had proper treatment in the first place – the term “treatment resistant” is rubbish in my opinion – ther eis no such thing as treatment resistant and when someone has four different diagnoses they should understand why I as a mother am so upset at the shocking care and how this is allowed to go on in the UK. Where the Government intervention and the complaines procedures are useless and so is the law. Once on these drugs you are giving someone a life sentence of misery as like any drug they wear off and then they increase the dosage or else replace that drug with something else. Clozapine is one of the worst drugs in my opinion having listened to some of the other patients and what they have to say about it. It is all down to big business and I am going to confront each and every drugs company as Ibelieve they should live up to their glowing praise of themselves being “caring”. Lets see how caring they are and they should donate something – each and every one of them to get the project Chy Sawel or Soteria off the ground or else I would be more than willing to send my daughter to a fabulous alternative care centre in America – there are about 5 now and nothing in the UK and i hope so much that in the near future Government will step in to help people like my daughter who should NEVER have been given the drugs in the first place and are a “victim of the pharmaceutical industry” – by the way these are not my comments but that of her Orthomolecular private psychiatrist that I appointed because I could see how hopeless the care was and how it was not working. YES THERE ARE PROFESSIONALS WHO WOULD BE WILLING TO GET INVOLVED IN SUCH A SCHEME AND THE KEY IS NUTRITION AS DR WALSH AND DR TRACY AMONGST MANY OTHER EXPERTS HAVE HIGHLIGHTED.
