Those who visit this site are aware about what John Breeding is saying. Unfortunately those who should watch the video are reading mainstream media and being informed by APA and Big-Pharma.

"This treatment is unacceptable. You, the non-afflicted, can never possibly know the macabre horror of psychosis. You can observe, study, and react, but you will never relate to the hell of being incapable of escaping your own mind. At least give this man the opportunity to experience the comfort of people who love and care for him, it is his right as a human being and you are foul people for perpetuating his state of relentless isolation."
"A psychiatric institution that needs to hold someone for five years has failed."
"I've just ended working as a med nurse at a "rehabilitation" facility that has no psychotherapy whatsoever. A few of the residents have been there for years - 6, 8... And for those that are discharged, they are often back in a few weeks or months for another stay of months or years - it's a revolving door system, and a very profitable one. In my opinion, meds without psychotherapy is mere chemical restraint. I will never work as a psych nurse again.October 23 at 9:05pm · "

"It’s news to Christine O'Donnell that the Constitution guarantees separation of church and state. It’s news to Joe Miller, whose guards handcuffed a journalist, and to Carl Paladino, who threatened The New York Post’s Fred Dicker, that the First Amendment exists, even in Tea Party Land. Michele Bachmann calls Smoot-Hawley Hoot-Smalley."From: Making Ignorance Chic by Maureen Dowd at The New York Times.
If you are not concerned with these facts...
Born in 1951, pornstar turned politician, she was the first hardcore performer in the world to be elected to a democratic parliament.
Popular for her lolita-look - with flower crown, holding a little teddy bear all the time - in 1979 she was elected the leading candidate of the "Lista del Sole", Italy's first Green Party and in 1985 she switched to the Partito Radicale, campaigning against nuclear energy and NATOmembership, for human rights and against starvation anywhere in the world... that were the golden years for the PR. The official flyer of her campaign (on the left and here another part) was pretty peculiar, I can agree on its inner meaning - besides the nuclear part - but it looks like it was written by a comedian or something! Anyway, Cicciolina was elected to the Italian parliament in 1987 and she was actually the second most voted person in the Radical Party, after the leader Pannella.
After the Radical Party experience in 1990 she claimed to be "available to make love with Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to achieve peace in the Middle East". But Saddam didn't answer. She renewed the offer in October 2002 (when Iraq was resisting international pressure to allow inspections for weapons of mass destruction). He still didn't answer. Again, Cicciolina made the same offer to Osama bin Laden in 2006 . Even this one didn't answer at all... Not a good career as a peacemaker :-)))
She quit porn in 1989 and she continues to be active in politics, advocating a safe future with absolute sexual freedom including the right to sex in prisons. She is against all forms of violence including the death penalty and the use of animals for fur or scientific experimentation. She is for the decriminalization of drugs, against censorship of any kind, in favor of sex education in schools, and for objective information about AIDS. She has proposed a tax on automobiles to reduce the damages of smog and fund the defence of nature. Then she began exploring the possibility of campaigning in Hungary, where she was born, but failed to collect enough signatures for a non-partisan candidacy. In 2004 she announced that she would run for mayor of Milan in 2006 with a similar promise but she never presented herself as a candidate in the end.
So, no matter what, Cicciolina was and still remain a piece of Italian political history nobody could ever forget (for better or for worse).

Visit the site RIPPD.
Over half of the incarcerated individuals in U.S. prisons have a history of mental illness. Police officers have limited training in both recognizing and dealing with the needs of mentally ill people. Consequently, their treatment of mentally ill people can cause further damage. RIPPD works to improve the criminal justice systems handling of people with mental disabilities. Its members include formerly imprisoned people with mental illness and their families.
Rights for Imprisoned People with Psychiatric Disabilities (RIPPD) is a grassroots, direct action organization, united to demand justice and social change, for imprisoned people with psychiatric disabilities.
Our membership is made up of people with psychiatric disabilities who have been in jail or prison and who have suffered in that system. Our membership also includes family members and friends of people with psychiatric disabilities who are and have been imprisoned.
We believe in humane treatment for all regardless of race, class or sexual identity. We want to end the discrimination and dehumanization in the criminal justice system.
We fight the stigma against people with mental illness by demonstrating our courage and empowerment. We are outraged and disgusted by the deplorable treatment by the people controlling the current system.
We confront all those who have the responsibility to make changes by strategizing, protesting, negotiating, collaborating with other groups and by any other creative means necessary.
We will not be ignored! Our voices will be heard!
RIPPD confronts a system set up to oppress people who have a mental illness and who have been in jail or prison. Despite the existing power structure, our organization has been able to gain respect from the powers that be and meet with judges, politicians, and other government officials and begin to achieve the policy changes that we seek. Through this work members develop leadership skills along with a greater understanding of the process involved in organizing for social change. Organizing is about more than the tasks at hand and the projected outcomes, it is also about the process that membership goes through as individuals unite and take action together. It is this process that empowers members and makes this work possible.
RIPPD is working towards the following:
Establishment of Alternatives to Incarceration
Establishment of Pre-Booking Jail Diversion in the NYPD, Community Crisis Intervention Teams
Abolition of Prison/Jail Expansion
Accountability and Training for Correction and Police Officers
Better Mental Health Treatment in Jails and Prison
A Change in the Public Hearing Process to Favor Community

I have been off Effexor for about five years now, yet I STILL have one symptom that appeared either while on it or going off it, I don't remember: when lying in bed going to sleep or waking up, I hear a sudden whoosh sound, maybe every half minute, not regular. I remember five years ago I was going off Effexor and was hearing the same sound triggered by moving my eyes suddenly. There were some other symptoms such as dizziness when walking. I was having so much trouble going to sleep one night that it suddenly occurred to me that it might be related to going off Effexor. I got up and got on the internet and did some searching, and I found hundreds of testimonials about symptoms like mine from Effexor withdrawal. It was a relief, and caused me to do the withdrawal more gradually. After I was completely off it, all symptoms except this ear whoosh sound stopped. The whoosh has never stopped. I'm reasonably sure it appeared while taking Effexor, and was severe at that time. I keep having the feeling that there is something I think about that causes it. This morning I finally identified what I believe is the trigger for the sound: beginning to fall asleep, or conscious attention beginning to relax. Have you ever been driving and almost fallen asleep and jerked awake? Have you noticed that that jerk is accompanied by a sudden whoosh sound in the ears? That is EXACTLY the sound I hear now when relaxing in bed in the morning, every 5-30 seconds. I believe it was caused by Effexor, although I can't be certain. It is also possible, however, that Prozac also causes this, because Prozac has been my antidepressant of choice, and though I'm not on it now, I was about 3 months ago. I don't notice this symptom being any worse, though, when I'm on Prozac. I think Effexor is dangerous. I tell friends asking about antidepressants to avoid that one like the plague.

I recently discontinued using venlafaxine, after only nine months, due to certain impairments in my daily life such as; huge impairments in short term memory, complete loss of pleasure in reading when I used to be an avid reader, memory loss in the way of spelling and such, problems in recalling familiar words and speech issues (i.e. unablity to speak the words that I'm thinking of, occasional stuttering), and severe loss of inhibitions (i.e. no conscience), and reoccurances of psychotic episodes from childhood.
I've been about a off effexor for three weeks now and things aren't getting back to normal. Could this be frontal lobe damage or something and is this likely to be permanent? I am 18 thus my brain should be more elastic than someone older. Does anyone have any knowledge about this for it would be much appreciated.

Hello. The deficits you list have been experienced by many, many people. Some people are finding that they have to live with long-term damage, however you have only just come off the drug and are highly likely to be in the throes of withdrawal... and withdrawal symptoms show a great deal of overlap when compared with the side-effects: including the memory problems, feeling detatched or unreal, confusion or cognitive difficulties, auditory and visual hallucinations, murderous urges, and manic-like reactions.
Time may prove to be a great healer. Lots of people suffering badly, withdrawal-wise, concur in stating the worst was at the 3 month mark.
I had all the 'huge impairments in short term memory, complete loss of pleasure in reading when I used to be an avid reader, memory loss in the way of spelling and such, problems in recalling familiar words and speech issues (i.e. unablity to speak the words that I'm thinking of, occasional stuttering), and severe loss of inhibitions (i.e. no conscience)'... myself, whilst on this category of antidepressant. And more. A lot of what I found helped me, in the immediate aftermath, turned out to be eerily similar to the advice offered over here.
Could it be frontal lobe damage? Well these drugs can certainly cause long-term damage, but it is a little more difficult to pin down the where and the how. Many of the symptoms do tie in with that theory, but that's a long, long way from fact. Many of them also tie in with hormonal damage, and dopamine receptor damage, and no doubt a host of other unknowns... I think that although 'the truth is out there', it's going to take some finding, especially given the significant lack of research. The book which addresses many of these issues is Joseph Glenmullen's 'Prozac Backlash' (equally relevant to venlafaxine).
Other people have posted to this board describing long-term after effects, if you use the search facility at the bottom of this page, you will find them swiftly.
You've been off them only 3 weeks. No time at all. You may find significant improvement occurs over the coming weeks, as your body adapts to its non-drug environment. Try a little mild exercise, a good old-fashioned diet (staying away from the additives & artificial sweeteners), and attempt to let yourself relax at least once in the day... easy to say, not so easy to do... give yourself as many advantages as possible: good nutrition, the exercise endorphins, stress reduction, natural sleep.

I have already reported it here and the recruitment of children is still going on and will end in December 2011:
|Sponsor:||Eli Lilly and Company|

"Children (18 years or younger) taking antidepressants experience suicidal thoughts or actions in about 1 out of every 50 who are depressed. Although duloxetine is prescribed for children, the FDA has not approved duloxetine for use in children."
Still this study is being done since last year. After reading the post below it seems that neither Japanese or American children are respected and when profit is being done at the expenses of the health and life of children it is hard to understand what is integrity and ethics in medicine.

|GSK carrying out Paxil trials on children in Japan|
I was searching through the archives of my blog tonight for research purposes and came across the Japanese/Paxil studies I wrote back in 2009.
I'm not going to repeat the posts but offer this video I created and some links for further reading.
This really should be stopped.

Email to the Japanese Drug Regulator [Re; Paxil Clinical Trial in Japan]
I took this post from Fiddaman's blog. I published an excerpt of an article by Katharine Schulz here by the time a Japanese dermatologist told me he prescribes Paxil to treat skin problems because stress can cause dermatitides and Paxil does wonders to fight stress. This is a very strange off-label use. Someone from Japan came to comment that the article was not true blah blah...
