Shock and Suicide, Part 3: Further Reading

Here are some of the resources I drew upon in organizing the shock and suicide posts and Talk with Tenney Episode. They are invaluable to understanding this topic.

I urge you to read up and form your own understanding on the issue of electroshock and suicide. There are more sources in my previous shock and suicide post bibliography.

  1. Dear Lauren,

    I am a member of MadInAmerica, meaning I donate and read it regularly.

    I am in nightly contact with Sarah Knutson on the conference call hotline she created approx. one year ago for those of us who are psychiatric survivors, plus I just met with her one week ago in VT to ascertain how to achieve some of the goals we mutually desire to come to fruition.

    Every time I turn around, there is another assault on all of us, on our current and projected welfare, and a more and more hastened and regular movement by manufacturers of drugs and machinery to not heal us, but to keep us forever customers whether we like it or not. These greedy factions have found the most expedient, permanent way to use our minds, bodies and our monies and government to get to THEIR ultimate goal: MONEY/PROFIT and living their successful lives rolling in it while we are writhing in pain, both mental and physical, which is of no concern to them.

    I am a former VP of sales who had her life pulled asunder by the psychiatric/pharmaceutical industries, industries full of human beings who failed me in the most complete way, leading me, through their efforts, to lose my marriage, my home, my vocation, and almost my life many times over.

    Well, I’m still here. I may now live on a desolate moon of their making due to their false diagnosis and medications which mystified me in such a way over 25 years as to lead me to where I am now, but through dumb luck and persistence, finding my way to books by authors Robert Whitaker and Dr. Breggin; then the organization and individuals: MadInAmerica, Laura Deleano, Corinna West, and finally Sarah Knutson (in that specific order), I have found my family, my voice, my heart, and above all, HOPE.

    With HOPE and each other, I and those who desire and are determined to, can accomplish almost anything.

    Very sincerely, and with great appreciation for what YOU are trying to accomplish,

    Lynn

    Dear Sarah and Laura,

    I am going to call in today to the phone conference regarding ECT to figure out how to stop THAT industry who now is trying to change laws and mandate unsafe treatment that has no positive scientific backing.

    The manufacturers of medications and equipment who need us as their HOSTS keep marching forward because their carrot, their reward is NOT tied to making us well functioning human beings who only briefly need individualized, well-defined appropriate care after it is factually determined what we are suffering in our crisis, NO, their carrot on the rope at the end of the bean pole is MONEY AND IS GREED-CENTERED, and out of that is their solution that we be their HOSTS for the remainder of our lives.

    Their other on-going tactic to keep us as life-long medication eating patrons, is to involve our government, persuading them to mandate that we must eat this medication product for the rest of our lives, or, now an old but new assault, to have out brains shocked, for our own good, and once again to involve our government to insure that we use this treatment whether we want it or not, whether it really, through proven scientific long-standing evidence, really provides health for us or not.

    WE ARE THE CONSUMER THE MANUFACTURERS OF MEDICATIONS AND MACHINERY MUST HAVE FOR THEIR FINANCIAL SUCCESS, HAVING NOTHING AT ALL TO DO WITH US AND OUR HEALTH AND ITS RETURN. I AM ONE OF MILLIONS WHOSE LIFE’S RUIN IS PROOF, LONG-STANDING 25 YEARS OF TORTUROUS PROOF.

    We cannot let them continue to get away with this. There must be a way to cut through the red tape and governmental procedures only WE must follow to get our voices heard, and also the numerous retaliations we suffer which often succeed in tie us up in knots and eating up our energies and time, while those who sit at the government table have paved their way with ill-gotten monies earned with our lives, our suffering and many of our ultimate demises.

    How do we accomplish this? Must we always do it THEIR way? Through our intelligence, through our unique talents and the HOPE and HEART each of us gives and desires to give each other, what is the best way to accomplish shutting down false claims and greedy desires to get to and use our bodies and minds for their desired monetary rewards under the over and over proven false guise of helping us?

    Hope, Love and Solidarity,

    Lynn
