Dr Ann Blake Tracy must be in huge demand worldwide and extremely busy but still has the time to write and advise me and I have asked her advice on the shocking level of drugs that the Bethlem Royal Hospital have given to my daughter.
I was told by the team at Cambian that the Metformine was to counteract weight gain. I was naturally suspicious as I had asked if my daughter had diabetes as this drug is for diabetes. They denied this altogether however after the shocking way I have been treated and my daughter I do not not trust them one bit. Dr Tracy reckons as I do that this drug is not being used as explained at all and what is more I believe and so does she that this drug Metformine could be given to counter diabetes and this makes sense to me. After all my daughter would have the grounds to sue them on this account. Dr Tracy honestly stated the real reason which is re: blood sugar issues which of course lead to the weight gain in the first place. This is totally logical in my opinon and it would appear they are using this drug off label.
I am so delighted that there are honest doctors around like Dr Ann Blake Tracy and what is more – she has been invited to address Parliament in Denmark very soon. I think this is brilliant and I have various people I am writing to in Denmark and I intend to pass on this excellent news and would be very happy to highlight my case and the shocking care my daughter is having in the UK as a prime example. If a country like Denmark can progressively look to reforming mental health care then what on earth is the UK doing – the answer is NOTHING! The UK likes to put on a good show for the Olympics and other occasions but when it comes down to care they could not care less.
Mr Johnson is clowning around all the time and should get down to the important issues of thinking about what to do regarding the shocking state of care in the UK. I have written to them all and got replies from all except Mr Jeremy Hunt (Health Secretary) who is supposed to be in favour of holistic care. None of their replies have been satisfactory.
What is the point in having organisations that do not protect the patient in terms of complaints and guidelines. What a waste of taxpayers money.
Anyway I have now finalised my letters to the pharmaceutical companies as I believe they should do something about the situation and take the lead and provide the funding for those who have suffered terrible side effects, those who are so called treatment resistant and people who need to come off the drugs because of serious medical problems. If these pharmaceutical companies are caring then they will offer to me a donation in order that I can set up an Alternative Care Centre in the UK. Look at the profits they make and my daughter has suffered and I believe they should all contribute so that others who have also suffered can benefit from some unique care as there are many professionals would would like to be involved and a huge demand for such centres over here in the UK. Apparently there are many alternative care centres already in existance in the States and NOTHING over here and that is an absolute disgrace. There is no choice of care to patients and for those who are happy on the drugs – all well and good but there are many who do not get on with them and of course if anyone whatsoever took t hese drugs you simply cannot just come off them the way these “experts” withdraw patients in the hospitals. This causes psychosis in itself. Drug withdrawal ideally should be done extremely carefully and under medical care but there is nowhere and so people suffer so very much but I know many people who have successfully come off the drugs and are leading a decent life now and that says it all.
The drugs lead to a serious condition called Akathisia and my daughter said it felt like she wanted to crawl out of her skin. This condition is as a direct result of the drugs and not a so called condition.
Anyway the time has come for reform and I hope that Dr Ann Blake Tracy will be invited to Parliament alongside other experts who are speaking out about the shocking drugging of patients against their wishes which in itself is extremely harmful and these mind altering LSD like chemicals can cause no end of long term health problems and lead to shortening of life – it is ridiculous what the Dean of the Royal College of Psychiatry said. I quite rightly told him that it is the drugs that shorten life not smoking. All he could do was keep smiling all the time and he could not wait to get away from me as I was dishing out the leaflets at the AGM of SLAM.| The Great Grandma in our family lived to over 100 years and was a heavy smoker and that says it all.
However if the NHS wish to promote non smoking then the best way is not through further chemicals but through the electronic cigarettes. It is very cruel what they do to patients on the acute wards who are not allowed to smoke and these should be provided.
Next week is the hospital meeting and then I intend to take things to court re the Tribunal and I am in touch with lots of experts now who can give me some extremely good advice. The wonderful book by Dr Ann Blake Tracy should be used as evidence as there is no end of cases and references to back her claims in the book Prozac Panacea Pandora. Thank goodness too for the likes of Professor Healy and there is Dr Walsh coming soon and Genita Petralli.
When is this Government going to address these facts and do something about this dreadful situation and cruel abuse.
