Dear Desert Rain,
How terribly tragic this is! Thank you for posting this.
My sis took Lexapro, goddamn that shrink who picked up his prescription pad to sentence her to that without even consulting her! She became suicidal on the drugs prescribed to cure her "chemical imbalance". She wasn't suicidal BEFORE taking all these "chemicals"!!!
In no way do I mean to validate Scientology. I am saying that these days, dangerous drugs of ALL KINDS are being OVERPERSCRIBED. It's really about capitation in insurance coverage and the greed of the Pharmaceutical companies, not about the shrinks who think they are doing the "right thing". These shrinks are just like Scientologists who think they are doing the "right thing" by telling someone with ovarian cancer to do the Purification Rundown.
I now suspect that some Scientologist(s) is/are using this young man's death to pad their case against psychiatry because it appears on the surface that someone died while being treated with psyche meds. The person who wrote to Andreas may not even know of the family except by having found the link that Desert Rain posted. Nevertheless, intimate knowledge of any family's internal plight should be investigated if it is related to any dangerous cult activity or posted about on the internet by an anonymous stranger!
As for this young man being a martyr to the Scientology cause- only people ignorant of psychiatry could buy it. I have had wonderful psychiatrists who NEVER whipped out their prescription pads or insisted that I get electrodes strapped to my cranium. They TALKED to me. Because my problems, as well as my sister's problems DIRECTLY resulted from being the child of a dangerous, sociopathic conman like L. Ron Hubbard!!!
This kid's family has been through a wringer. I am appalled that some grotty, weasley little Scientologist is trying to exploit their misery towards the benefit of DM.
OOOOOOOOOOOOOH am I ANGRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GRRRR!!! GRRR!!!! etc.
Poor thing. What a gentle, intelligent looking kid.
I'd like to see the face of the weasel who wrote to Andreas ANONYMOUSLY.
Come out come out where ever you are, you little cowardly minion of DM! Come and play with the big boys, who will not let you get away with using the death of an innocent to pad your sick agenda. Come over and say HELLO to Os Wilkes, why don't you?
AS IF that would ever happen.
