The vast majority of people don't have a clue about what we are talking about

Whenever I try to talk about the death of people because of psych-drugs the same old happens: people don't know and I look like a lunatic.
I always tell to those who have to know because they work as psychologist or something related to go to Philip Dawdy's Furious Seasons because his blog is the best when we are talking about the horrors, yes horrors, that psych-drugs are causing.
Still people don't have a clue and don't want to know about it: it's too boring talking about it. I don't know but I was watching "The Constant Gardener" and there is this speech:

Arthur "Ham" Hammond: "So who has got away with murder? Not, of course, the British government. They merely covered up, as one does, the offensive corpses. Though not literally. That was done by person or persons unknown. So who has committed murder? Not, of course, the highly respectable firm of KDH Pharmaceutical, which has enjoyed record profits this quarter, and has now licensed ZimbaMed of Harare, to continue testing Dypraxa in Africa. No, there are no murders in Africa. Only regrettable deaths. And from those deaths we derive the benefits of civilization, benefits we can afford so easily... because those lives were bought so cheaply.""

Hey Ana!

Was just thinking of you. And with all the research you're always doing I thought you might enjoy Pharma Marketing blog. John Mack is usually a fine read, and he's got the blog Followers gadget up too.

All the Best

Thank you very much.

Anna, I've been thinking of you. How have your Cymbalta adventures been going. I think I'm almost through my withdrawal. I believe it was Cymbalta combined with a little bit of generic Prozac withdrawal. But the Prozac worked pretty well for me. Luckily, I wasn't on a very big dosage. Hope you're well. Love,

I don't think you're a lunatic at all. I've had some bad experiences myself with these drugs and I don't want to have anything to do with them. Right now, I take Omega 3 fish oil and that's it.

Hey, I was just thinking of you. Hadn't seen you around for a while. I hope you are well.

I never took Cymbalta. If I understood you switched Cymbalta to Prozac.
I guess this is a good choice and if one day you want to withdraw Prozac people say it's easier, but always have withdrawal symptoms.
Hope you are fine!

I know but when you tell some of the stories we know people don't trust us.
I'm taking a break from this blog because it is too painful for me.
I'm always sad and angry because there's not a single chance of any change.
I'm at the other blog but not updating daily.
Love you all,
