The family meeting:
The family meeting went surprisingly well. I am afraid that is all I can put at the moment on my blog on this as there will hopefully soon be the much awaited court case.
It will be decided at this court case the future care of my daughter who is under strict control by Cambian in Wales right now. I think they would like to keep her forever – the more she is drugged the more disabled she is becoming, the more noticeable – it is heartbreaking to watch and especially to think that these so called responsible caring drugs companies do NOTHING to step in and help the victims of their industry. It should be enforced in my opinion that each and every drugs company helps – for instance there is no decent care throughout the UK and I have seen humane care abroad – where is the help when there is nothing here. As there is nothing decent here in the UK the Government needs to help organisations like Chy Sawel, Root and Branch and Soteria. As no one has a clue how to properly take someone off drugs in the UK if a patient is having adverse side effects then the advice should be taken from experts abroad such as Dr Ann Blake Tracy and Dr Walsh who should be invited over here to give advice.
I am horrified at the bulk of psychiatrists who only want to push drugs left right and centre without any regard for anyone else but themselves. There are however a few outstanding psychiatrists that do speak the truth may God praise these few for being brave enough to stand up for the vulnerable patients like my daughter. I commend them.
Anyway, I have spoken to Elizabeth today who was hoping to be taken out to the coast. On a beautiful day like today I hope she has not been kept cooped up on the ward.
Anyway, I went to a fabulous show in Aylesbury tonight – a dance show with full orchestra. As a young girl Elizabeth was given the opportunity to do ballet and I thought had potential for this however I did not push this upon her as this was something that she just tried. She also did swimming, brownies and piano. Elizabeth continues to take an interest in music and has said on occasions “All I have is my music”. Elizabeth should be enjoying herself – she is young and should be out with friends, she once had a job and was doing OK but the drugs that have been prescribed have ruined everything and she even has said “I am missing out on my life, Mum”. How extremely cruel life can be but that is the care on offer in the UK DRUG PUSHING and acute wards and now patients like my daughter where all else has failed are referred to the private sector care paid for by the Local Authority. The kind of private care that would be better suited is a therapeutic community and not just another private hospital where OK the facilities may be better that your average acute ward but the care is as inhumane as any other acute ward. In addition to the drugs prescribed by the Bethlem I happen to know that other drugs were pushed such as Lorazepam and I have specifically requested that this practise be stopped. It almost reminds me of the Michael Jackson case. I applaud the family of Michael Jackson to stand up for his rights and I as a mother intend to do that for my daughter and hope that awareness is brought about by the public and accountability to the Government for how much they are spending on care that is NOT WORKING! and is against human rights. and for anyone who believes in God – it must surely be against God to allow enforced drugging – a patient being tortured by being pinned down by numerous members of staff to administer a drug which they WRONGLY state you have to be on for the rest of your life. If withdrawal was done correctly like Dr Tracy says over a period of 1 – 2 years slowly and gradually then there would be no problems. However, nothing is done properly in the UK in my opinion.
nly wish I could have brought Elizabeth to see this wonderful performance. No doubt Elizabeth would be in bed at this time. She has to lie down and have a sleep in the afternoons but they make her get up early. They make her do chores even though she says she does not feel well. The staff do not know how badly Elizabeth must be feeling as they are not on these drugs themselves.
