10th anniversary of Cymbalta's victim Traci Johnson: drug induced suicidal ideation
Since 2008 I remember Traci Johnson tragic death in Eli-Lilly facilities during Cymbalta clinical trials. I started posting at my blog Justana and now I publish there and here. This beautiful and great woman hanged herself as a side effect of the drug Cymbalta. Her story is known by all of those who are trying hard to raise awareness about the side effects of psychiatric drugs whether they are patients or doctors like Peter Breggin, David Healy and so many others. When I first saw her picture I was amazed because I thought she resembles me. I asked my dad and he agreed. Maybe this resemblance affected my choice among so many other hideous stories of young people and children losing their lives because of antidepressants SSRIs. I found the left picture yesterday when I was searching to make this post and the picture at the right by Jacqueline Larma/AP showing - "Pallbearers carry the coffin of Traci Johnson out of the Philadelphia church where she was active in everything from teaching Sunday school to singing in the choir. Johnson, 19, committed suicide Saturday in an Indianapolis clinic."
R.I.P. little angel.
I am representing all colors in this candle because you are shinning so much that you light is being seen from far.
