‘Raze out the written troubles of the brain’. The Myth and Horror of Mental Disease

Mquote-canst-thou-not-minster-to-a-mind-diseased-pluck-from-the-memory-a-rooted-sorrow-raze-out-the-william-shakespeare-384568

Psychiatry, is defined, as.

the diagnosis and treatment of mental diseases’.

‘Disease’ as a concept can only be defined in terms of its pathology.

Pathology  diagnoses disease from changes in cells, tissues, and body fluids.

Not even Schizophrenia, or psychosis, let alone, the recently created 375 mental ‘disorders’ have any pathology and therefore cannot be ‘diseases’.

And psychiatrists have had to admit  to this.

The difference between a medical diagnosis and a psychiatric diagnosis

Many academic and influential psychiatrists have written extensively on the non existence of mental illness per se, in books like ‘The Myth of Mental Illness’ by Thomas Szasz

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Szasz

Once a putative disease,  that has a pathology like neurosyphilis, is diagnosed, it then becomes a physical not a mental disease.

The use today, of socially ‘acceptable’ conduct/behaviour, as the main  diagnosis of  mental ‘diseases’, is akin to its historic use, that categorised homosexuality as a disease of the brain.

And institutionalised unmarried mothers as social deviants.

It would appear, social control, and profit, are the reason for our third largest, burgeoning pharma industry, and mental health services, soon to be totally privatised. https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2014/12/16/mental-health-big-pharma-big-profits-big-danger/

It  is now possible, to label almost anything, as  a mental ‘disease’/disorder,- alcoholism, shyness, terrible twos, removing social responsibility, maintaining social control, and make profit from these new diseases, by fixing them with expensive, dangerous magic bullets, that cause more harm, than good

.http://www.cchrint.org/2011/07/29/harvard-expert-ties-mental-illness-epidemic-to-big-pharmas-agenda/

And, the side effects of this ‘disease cure’, itself, then causes pathological changes  in brain and body and even death.

We are insidiously brainwashed by TV soap operas, like Coronation St to believe, that these ‘diseases’, like depression/ADHD  are common, and can be miraculously cured by drugs.

Such medication, at best turn us into human robots, unable to emphasise or feel, or, at worst, has side effects, that will then be treated, with more dangerous magic bullets.

Rarely, are they the solution, except for a very short time preferably with counselling.

And their use, boosting the pharma industry, and our economy,  motivated, by unregulated profit.

The following blog comments, received from two mothers are just two of the millions affected.

Theirs, and their child’s horror, speaks for itself.

Pauline Thomas writes of her son’s medication

‘My son has been taking Carbamazepine for 25 years, and Lamotrogine for 19 years.

Both are anticonvulsants. Both also used has mood enhancers for people suffering with Bi-Polar My son has cerebral palsy, mostly down his left side and a learning disability.

My son was 17 when he was diagnosed with epilepsy after a hip operation. He was medicated on Carbamazapine, and for 5 years was seizure free.

We were coming to the decision to start taking them away, when he started having startle jumps whenever there was a loud noise or someone knocked against him. Sometimes these jumps led into a full blown seizure (tonic clonic).

It was then that he was medicated with Lamotrigine. Six months later he was getting moody and distressed. We did not realize then that Lamotrigine effected peoples moods. We were given help from psychologists.

In 2008 his seizures stopped. About the same time he was having aggressive outbursts and refusing to do anything or go anywhere. Sometimes they lasted for a few days, sometimes longer. At this time the day services in our borough were being pared down and outsourced to private companies. A disaster for him and many others.

Anyway in late 2012 we started to reduce his carbamazepine (he was on 1000mg daily).

Carbamazepine is an enzyme inducer. Any drug taken with Carbamazepine (Lamotrigine) would automatically begin to get stronger when you start to reduce CBZ.

I reminded the psychiatrist of this but he ignored me. Perhaps he thought I was talking out of turn?

The result was that a month after he was free of CBZ (in Jan 2014) he started to have terrible frightening hallucinations. He was terrified. He could not sleep. He was so scared.

We contacted his psychiatrist who said that he had never come across this type of reaction before but he believed my son was having a interictal reaction to his withdrawal of CBZ. I argued that he was most probably having a toxic reaction to Lamotrigine. His psychiatrist reinstated 400mg of carbamazepine.in two weeks. He recoverd for 3 weeks and then went back to be psychotic again but this time with the added side effect of ‘freeezing’ in the middle of doing anything. He would suddenly stop like a statue.

Telemetry showed no sign of any seizure activity. We have now began the long haul of getting rid all his medication. Lamotrigine is gone. We are now down to 400mg of CBZ.

The withdrawl symptoms are horrendous. Completely in a world of his own. Keeps talking about his days st college (20 years ago) with a focus on the same person. Her name and her parents and her sister going over and over in his head. It is like living with a completely different person

Carbamazepine has wrecked my son’s bones. He has osteoporosis. He has reduced white blood cells. (leucopenia). Both known side effects. He has little purple mauve spots on his body. Another known side effect which has been ignored by his psychiatrist. His psychiatrist suggested a while ago that my son should take biphosphonates to strengthen his bones. We refused, as we said we would not know if the drug would harm him, or if he was experiencing any side effects.

In America the drug company Merck was being sued by patients suffering with necrosis of the jaw and cancer of the oesophagus  after being on this drug.

We were threatened with the MCA

The doctor said if it could be proved that my son lacked capacity it could be taken out of our hands. This is why we cannot trust or like this doctor.

The doctor claims that my son is not suffering from withdrawal symptoms because antiepileptics have no known withdrawal symptoms.

He has reminded us however that they are mood enhancers.

We reminded him that our son was not mentally ill when he was given antiepileptic drugs.

My research tells me that Carbamazapine is related to the tricyclic group of drugs, which are antidepressants. There are withdrawal symptoms with antidepressants, especially if you have been on them for many years.

I recently purchased a book by American Dr. Peter Breggin called Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal, and one of his arguments is that

prescribers identify drugs according to the conditions that they are being used to treat rather than by their pharmacological category or characteristics, including their impact on the brain.

He also in his book refers to articles by Dr. Joanna Moncrieff.

I deplore that many of our children and loved ones are being used by the pharma and psychiatrist world as some sort of learning curve.

My son and many like him cannot fully explain what side effects they are having. Thank you Finola for exposing these cruel practices… ‘.

Another Mother, Cynthia Bartlett, wrote tragically of her son Charlie;.

‘ My son, Charlie, died two years ago of what I believe to be side effects from Risperdal given from age 15 until a few months before his death ay age 24.

I am really trying to start and do an investigative journalism piece on just this…Risperdal is routinely handed out here in Canada to children with autism.

I see one boy (on risperdal since age eight) in our small town, going down, exactly as my son did, starting with a strange gait and then rapid onset dystonia, losing swallowing and then dying from choking in the middle of the night.

I have accompanied the family to the neurologist to no avail’.

Our government, is at present debating, and, determined to introduce, an Assisted Suicide Act, legalising euthanasia.

One of  its clauses, could be, that if, all the MCA ‘incapable’, would have decided, to end their life, were they capable, the state can end it, for them.

Even, their body parts, can be used under MCA regulations.

This will mean no inquests, into why they died, even court deracinated family, need not be told of their death.

Parents of the MCA disappeared are not even afforded notification and a funeral.

There is no closure on parents’ lifetime horror of wondering what is happening or has happened to their child.

Today, literally by now thousands  of autistics and LD  are holed up in private NHS ‘hospitals’ and private care homes like Winterbourne View some managing to survive for decades.

All a statistic earning £4,500, for 24/7 surveillance, and medication.

What physical and mental state will they be in by now?

Imagine, the permanent effects of the long term drugs, they have been pumped full of, the horror is too much to contemplate but they and their families must daily.

https://finolamoss.wordpress.com/2015/01/01/the-risperidone-scandal/

There are no future services/ life, for autistics, and, mentally disordered, except, as such encaged, cash cows.

The corporate/charity ‘independent’ living providers, need drugs, to enforce their ‘support’, as the system, does not allow, for individual care.

Shakespeare knew over 400 years ago no doctor could,

Raze out the written troubles of the brain.

As, Therein the patient Must minister to himself.’

And the autistic and learning disabled are not mentally ill.

But, these wise words were before big pharma and the realisation of the gold mine of mental disability.

Spring

IMG_0390It is spring, the gardener is back.

He has observed Issy through the windows, and, in the garden.

I had briefly mentioned our predicament.

But as usual, he makes no enquiry of her.

I ask how his Christmas went, he returns the curtesy.

The social necessity of a favourable reply irritates.

‘It wasn’t that good’, his ‘oh’ expression, encourages me to continue,

‘ Issy might be taken; she is worth £4,000 a week’.

His head cocks slightly, but his fixed richter grin, does not falter.

I go back in.

Furious, amazed, humiliated.

No words express, invisibility.

He boasted he was a devote Christian.

‘See how they love one another’, must be reserved for the chosen.

I email the social worker, to check if they are coming, they say yes.

Both arrive, as usual on Wednesday.

They ask what day time activities we’ve arranged for Isabel.

I had emailed the only day centre provision that was closeish.

Isabel is generally in a better mood, and Angel Eyes has managed to read and colour with her.

She rushed down the path with me to pay the window cleaner, but is still reluctant to put her coat on and go out.

All is spring.

All is uncertain.

Acting out? – Dont worry we have medications for that!

This is a post from  Justice for Thomas Rawnsley’s blog.

With photos taken of Thomas,months before he died, in Cambian owned ;community living Kingdom House in Sheffield, where he was taken after a long history of care abuse involving one carer,who had said’ How many fingers can I break this time’, but was unable to as Thomas was double jointed.

After this, Thomas was found difficult to care for, so was sent to this ATU, where he was the only patient, and keeping it open, by his abuse, being used, to claim £12500 per week for the ‘treatment’, evidenced by the beyond shocking photos taken.

Thomas  on medication .

This is the unashamed use of the LA, and our government, of the most vulnerable for investment, and huge profit, using public funds, and breaching their statutory duty to care for them, but to claim the maximum money available under law for their ‘care’, on the basis of their ‘disbility’.

This is also 4 years after Winterbourne View was officially investigated.article-1392892-0C588EA900000578-684_468x286

Since then there has been more abuse, and death, for profit, of our most vulnerable.

The only move, via Norman Lamb, and LB Bill, is to move them out of NHS, MHA ‘care’/’treatment’, to LA, MCA ‘care’, for life in independent for profit living, with no reviews. And ASD/LD are now only being admitted to private hospitals like CYGNET/PRIORY group

Thomas, was placed in such independent living accommodation, where he was abused, and died.

Rip off social care.. the plight of the disabled family.

Friday 6th March

All is very bizarre,

All is very dire.

We, as always, are kept in the dark, until, whatever happens, happens.

As you can imagine, in between my waves of nausea, and caring for poor Issy, I have been kept, very busy, coping with officialdom.

I await the arrival of the other lady from the agency, who attends the social services’ weekly ‘surveillances’.

We had our 5 th ‘surveillance’, with our 2 social workers, two days ago, the sixth, next week, is the psychologist’s visit, to declare Issy a vegetable, and, observe her emotional state, and, no doubt, ours.

We are not told, nor dare ask, not that any definitive answer would be given, how long the ‘surveillances’ go on for.

It is now 11. 00 am, the lady was due at 10. 00am, so I assume, she is not coming.

She didn’t.

We have no timetable of hours.

Angel Eyes , has supported for three weeks, from 10-4 Monday, 10-3 Thursday.

We received an invoice, from the agency, for £710.50 for 50.75 hours support for February, at £14 per hour, yet Angel Eyes, is paid £8 per hour, and, no traveling expenses.

And, has to put her time sheets  online.

She also, appears, to organise support, and, inform us.

Personal ( direct payment ?) services, the basis, I assumed, this agency was paid on, allows £7.50 per hour, and a £30 per month administrative fee.

A little over half, of the agency invoice.

Adult services wouldn’t pay the £710.50, as the agency, is not approved by them

But, as the LA pay, are the source of all future lucrative, reliable business,and the piper that calls the tune.

The agency boss, assured us, he could have, our ‘pot of money’, held by the previous education package, (‘fist lady’ and co, no show), transferred over to his company.

Remember, the only alternative support, we were offered, was  ’ Fist Lady’, and,  new friend……

So, what can we do to be reimbursed this, and future support?

Sue the Local Authority, if we can find  the forms, pay the court fee, cope with the hassle, -service, posting etc, and  pay for the extra support, to attend court, and risk the LA’s legal costs, if we lose, which would be more, than the £720.

Courts are now profit making, and provide no legal advice, just an expensive, time consuming answering machine  service.

We have already paid out, £900 on officialdom.

No, we have no law, as, it cannot be enforced.

And complaints mechanisms are shut down on a court application.

So are living in the wild  west.

Just a reminder; the new agency support, is in lieu of Issy’s education, social care, respite, and NHS care.

Another reminder; we have had no overnight respite, other than, the three nights blogged in July 2014, and 3 evenings, in over 2 years.

The adult services lady told us, the insisted on, by social services agency  support, of 2 workers in the kitchen for  7 months, was to ‘interact’ with Isabel, as she fleetingly appeared in the kitchen for juice and food, and not to help me with cleaning  or even Issy’s personal care.

No one  knows, the role ‘support’ has, is it education, personal care, respite ?

Nor indeed, if they will turn up, or, leave, never, to be seen again.

Nor, more crucially,what the lies/spin, they report back to social services.

Do note, under the Chronically Sick and Disabled Act 1981, up to £82,000, can be claimed, legally, just for Isabel’s social care, and,a similar amount, from the NHS.

If Issy is in residential state care  over £4,000 will be paid to her private provider.

Hence, the push for Issy’s independent, away from family living, so this statutory entitlement,  in addition to  her benefits- housing, mobility, DLA, ILF, CA,can be claimed.

Clearly venture capitalists, have realised the autistic are a gold mine.

But has, or will, all this public money, help Issy ?

It hasn’t so far.

In fact it has caused her problems.

She is  still suffering, reignited post traumatic disorder, from her abuse in NAS care, exacerbated, by the fear of leaving her home, and, not returning, created by her first ‘education’ package, who informed her, she could not live with Mummy and Daddy.

As l write , Issy is echoing the words of the same NAS key worker, in the worker’s actual voice, replete with Yorkshire vowels, and, sneer.

Issy must have said to her, ‘Where is Mummy and Daddy?’,

the worker repeats this question, as Issy echoes, in the workers mocking voice,

‘Where’s Mummy and Daddy’, followed by a bellow of,

They’re not interested’.

What has been done about this abuse?

Nothing, as denied and usefully to justify antipsychotic medication, interpreted, as Issy  hearing voices.

Her 48 bruises in NAS residential school we declared and recorded for all time as self harm.

A National Autistic Society  claiming  £ 60,000 per annum, up until 24/5/2013, from the NHS, according to an NHS letter to me, despite the fact Isabel returned home, on the 29/1/2013, where she has never received any NHS care.

In addition, a further £60,000, for her education, as education and NHS paid 2/3rds of the £177,000,  ‘tax free’ per annum, paid to the National Autistic Society School as a charity.

There was no deduction the third of the year Issy was with us.

We paid NAS pocket money, and towards clothes.

All paid until May 2013, three and a half months, after Isabel returned home on 29 the January .

So much for cost cutting, value for money, and helping the disabled, and their family.

During these years, we were paid £20 per week Disability Living Allowance.

And still only this amount, for 4 months after Isabel had returned to live at home.

Isabel now receives £125 ( reduced to£105) DLA, and I receive £77 carer’s allowance ( reduced to £62.50p), no free nappies, no beds, no nothing….. Just the privilege now, of paying, through the nose,  for agency care.

Here are the statistics of number of hours of unpaid care by family.http://www.carersuk.org/news-and-campaigns/press-releases/facts-and-figures

Why can family carers not even claim any of their time caring, and worse still any  LA support is deducted from the disabled’s DLA.

Who’d  want to be a disabled family in this country, think of our plight, when ‘Pudsey Bear’ and ‘Children in Need’ come begging.

The door bell rings.

My heart leaps.

It’s difficult not to be paranoid, when you are secretly and silently surrounded.

But it’s just the nice post lady, a kind, familiar face.

And my fifth letter, 4 from the NHS hospital, and 1 personal one from the GP, about my failure to attend a Diabetic Eye Screening Appointment.

I have not got diabetes; even my 2 GP results 2 years ago were insufficiently raised.

I have no symptoms, but what does that matter.

Truth is irrelevant.

The box has been ticked.

As it is was revealed in February 2013, NHS bosses allowed the world’s biggest drugs firm’s’ lobbying company, to draft a report shaping our future health policy, we must consider the very real danger of the abuse of our mental health for profit.

Mental consumers are sought everywhere- schools, prisons, hospitals, police stations, prisons, even the homeless sleeping rough are hounded.

By 2016 Cameron announces on national news 1 in 10 children  suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder.

And all media promote the outing of ‘mental health’ issues.

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2016/aug/22/third-teenage-girls-depression-anxiety-survey-trend-truant

And it is encouraged to discuss your mental issues, which then become a disability and enable the state to control the citizen and make him a pharma cash cow.

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2016/jan/29/how-do-i-know-if-i-have-a-mental-illness?CMP=share_btn_tw

In 2011 FOI notices revealed hundreds of instances of hospitality, worth several hundred thousand pounds from drug giants.

Of conferences for NHS staff in Sydney, Mauritius, Las Vegas.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2016/02/10/doctors-receiving-drug-company-money.aspx

We are fed by the media, that the recently created, and now accepted without question phenomena of ‘self harm’, has seen a 45% increase in boys, all ripe for medication.

Mere social conduct disorders are now classed as mental disorders to treat with a different expensive drug.

In America half of foster children are on prescribed drugs.

http://dxsummit.org/archives/1774

One in 15 Americans at 18 now are labelled with a mental disorder.

See Robert Whitaker’s ‘Anatomy of an Epidemic’ and how the label of a disorder rather than helping has destroyed lives.

A and E departments received 30 million for mental health,  funding is in place, for mental health referrals,  in police stations, and schools.

We have an over supply of NHS mental health ‘professionals’ and  375 curtesy of America, mental disorders.

Medicalisation of social/ behavioural problems is a huge ever growing market for the Pharma Industry.

‘Self-harm’ is usefully medicated by expensive anti-psychotic drugs…

The Mirror revealed, 62 Tory MPs have links with Private Health.

Disorders make profit and control our autonomy, and society.

In 2005, the FDA issued an extraordinary “Public Health Advisory” cautioned against the risks, associated with, the whole new generation of antidepressants, including, Prozac, and its knock offs, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, and Lexapro, as well as Wellbutrin, Effexor, Serzone, and Remeron.

The warning followed a public hearing, in which, dozens of family members and victims testified of increased violence, and suicide after their use.

Despite this, and research studies showing anti-depressants were only slightly more effective, than a placebo.

Which is why Prozac is not licensed in Germany and does not satisfy NICE effectiveness guidelines.

This less that clinically required beneficial effect could in any event be due to research and conferences, being funded by the drug companies, research methods design to show advantages, and positive effects being published more than negative ones.

Yet despite this in 2007, there were 34 million prescriptions for anti-depressants and more than 40 million people are estimated to have taken Prozac since 1988.

The latest danger of anti depressant and hidden side effects, reported in the Guardian, on 17 th September 2015 http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/sep/16/seroxat-study-harmful-effects-young-people

‘Experts’ know little of how our brains work and even less as to how drugs affect this working and our physical health, particularly, in the long term.

And therefore can know little about how antidepressants work.

The huge flaw is that  no test, can measure the amount of serotonin in a living brain.

So ‘experts’ do not know what is a low, or normal level of serotonin in a normal brain and are working blind with adjustments by medication.
.
And there is little evidence, that depression is caused by a serotonin shortage per se and many studies contradict this theory of depression but are hidden .

And in today’s desperate times, it is more likely not pathological, but a normal reaction to uncertainty, debt and stressful abusive employment and education, and  our survival of the fittest society .

Children and adult mental health services and other NHS mental health services consist of  diagnosis and then usually straight onto medication.

But the effectiveness is not known, and is not monitored, and there are no scientific controls so the adequacy of services and drugs which cost billions cannot be judged.

So we have a multibillion pound industry, which by funding research, media and government, can create an ever increasing market, voluntary, and enforced, under the threat of care orders, if under 16, and, then mental capacity act orders if over.

Already half our population has been put on prescribed drugs.

1 in 15 Americans, reach adulthood with a mental disorder.

Do we really want to follow ?

The Mental Capacity Act 05 allows the state, to enforce medication, on effectively anyone, the experts, deem ‘incapable, of making a decision in respect to their medication.

And the Act, has a frighteningly vague, all expansive definition of ‘incapacity’, which systemically, is made, impossible to oppose.

Worse still ,The Medicines for Human Use (Clinical Trials) Regulations 2004, which regulates the conduct of clinical trials on medicinal products, allows a legal representative, (a person not connected with the conduct of the trial), to consent to the participation of ‘incapable’ adults, in medical research, currently, very little is known as to how these representatives make their decisions.

So it appears, those deemed ‘incapable’ under the MCA and that is potential millions can be used as guinea pigs by profit hungry drug companies.

Most alarming is the fact there is no central check, or control on  prescription drugs.

GPs are politicised and commercialised. They do not have to comply with conditions of drug licences and often prescribe off- label.

We as a nation are now hooked on antidepressants, statins, and, even painkillers http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2774300/GPs-creating-nation-hooked-painkillers-Addictions-codeine-morphine-drugs-reached-dangerous-levels.html

Mental health, is the perfect business model, for present, and future profit particularly as it is being increasingly enforced by  the MCA,and, supported by academics, NHS and media.

All financed and controlled by government.
.

The Love of Money…….

Since Isabel’s diagnosis, her state ‘support’, except for her  outings from May 2013 to March 2014.

Has been enforced containment in a NAS residential school £177,000 tax free for 9 months a year for 5 years,resulting in psychological, physical, educational, medical abuse, and neglect.

All was, and is, impersonal, bureaucratic standard letters, meaningless reviews with no attempt at humanity, changing stories,  covering up and lies.

Over 25 workers, have been in my kitchen.

Some daily for months, never without noice to be seen again.

Disappearing, without explanation.

I am not  allowed contact details.

How must all these itinerant ‘relationships’ affect a traumatised autistic teenager ?

We have been processed, through a ruthless, self-preservatory,  machine.

Issy has had 10 social workers, 3 independent reviewing officers, 4 speech therapists, 4 educational psychologists, 3 psychiatrists, 2 paediatricians,  1 CAFCASS Officer  and innumerable meetings, and reviews.

Which produced;

7 mouths respiridone medication, inappropriate, regressive, enforced ‘education’, 2 faecal impactions, 2 rotten teeth, a  48 bruise restraint,  PTSD, and now a refusal to leave her home.

Costing the public purse, well over a million.

Causing far far more problems, than her autism..

Had Issy been afforded proper medical treatment, education ( Brentwood the private German owned autistic school five minutes walk from home), and community support, from dedicated people, that  understood her, Issy would not be in the sorry state she is today, and, have suffered so much.

The  final straw, was an education package, telling her, she could not live with Mummy and Daddy.

This is the real scandal, and, the tragedy.

She would not have had, two faecal impactions, which both coincided with inappropriate care, one after ill- advised respite in her special needs school in 2006, the other in 2011, after a forced attendance, and a long wait at her GP’s practice, produced a meltdown, that necessitated a 48 bruise restraint.

The symptoms of these impactions,  ignored for years, and would remained so, had, it not been for our continued insistence they existed.

And our insisting our GP physically examine Issy’s stomach.

Issy’s NAS home also caused, and failed to notice her rotten molar and wisdom teeth.

And, fed an impacted child, ‘build up’ drinks which cause constipation.

We will never know, and no one will ever investigate, the permanent damage this neglect, may have caused poor Issy  physically and mentally.

And agencies/professionals refused to connect, the pain, and discomfort, of  impactions, to Isabel’s increasingly aggressive behaviour.

Instead, blaming her autism, to justify psychotic medication, an enforced 52 week inappropriate, school placement, and, a proposed 12 week CAMHS’s residential assessment, to enforce permanent psychotic medication.

This, enabled NAS, and CAMHS, to claim the maximum, from the public purse, and made Isabel’s ‘care’ easier to manage.

And off  social services books.

All was and is prescribed process in self interest and very much not in Issy’s interests.

In January 2013, had we not insisted on Issy coming home for the weekend, when her social worker said she was ‘too distressed’.

And a kind van driver, had not risked snow and ice, and, waited an extra 20 minutes, Issy would have been sent to a CAMHS Care Pathway Centre, Ruby Lodge for an assessment.

Social Services, and NAS had tried get our agreement to this for weeks.

Our permission, could then be dispensed with, by sectioning under the Mental Health Act.

To allow, £60,000 to be spent on, an illegal, as her IQ is well above 50, 12 week residential assessment.

In addition, to the £177,000, still being paid to NAS.

Issy would have been medicated with anti-psychotics for ever, despite it being licenced only, for short term severe behaviour.

This policy of sedation, chillingly promoted, in Ruby Lodge’s promotional materials, as the use of the

‘least restrictive alternative’, and,

Finding alternatives to restraint’.

With an outcome of,

A care plan that indicates the least restrictive alternative’,  ( powerful neurological suppression by anti psychotics ) to impact on ‘frequency, intensity and duration of challenging behaviour’.

Their discharge list including,

Medication/prescriptions to cover two weeks post discharge’.

Such Care Pathway centres, have been built all over the country.

Now ‘specialist hospitals’ in monopoly, enforced community living like Lifeways/ Cambian.

These centres/specialist hospitals are where Issy would be sent, if we, or the care workers were attacked, or Issy’s behaviour worsened, and we rang the police, the only option, we have ever been given by our GP, and social services.

The psychiatrist, who heads up this multimillion pound lodge complex, is no other, than the CAMHS psychiatrist, who prescribed Issy’s ‘off label’ Respiridone trial at 9, without our informed consent, as we were not told it was a trial.

She dismissed Issy’s side effects of crying, breathlessness and incontinence, as not side effects, as not on her list.

Issy had received no physical examination.

And when we had complained, we were served with a court care supervision application order.

One of side effect of anti-psychotic medication is constipation.

And at 7 stone, Issy still be being fed build-up drinks, 70 bottles were dumped in our kitchen on Issy’s return, cause constipation.

Issy’s impaction, was unacknowledged, and greatly acerbated, and now zombiefied, she would have been unable, to express her suffering, even by aggression.

It could not have been long, before she succumbed, to a long painful death, on her body filling with faeces, forcing her organs to close down.

As so many autistics have died before, unseen, unheard , no inquests, dying of ‘natural causes’, no serious case reviews,  very expensive state murders, silenced for ever.

Issy’s GP wouldn’t, and doesn’t visit residents for their £177,000 per annum.

When we complained of this, the Independent Reviewing Officer told us, it was our duty to arrange medical care at a distance of 25 miles.

We tried, but got nowhere.

A locum was prepared to visit the NAS home, but then left the practice.

One of the dedicated carers, who disappeared, before the final onslaught said, on my bemoaning enforced independent living,

‘She wouldn’t let them look after her dog, let alone her child’.

If Issy were a dog, the RSPCA would have prosecuted her state carers, yet it is the threat of care, and ‘best interests’ MCA orders, that have facilitated Issy’s abuse.

There can be no whistle blowers, and social and medical care goes unchecked, and is unaccountable.

The conflict of interest between, what is best for CAMHS, GPs and NAS,to make as much money as possible, and impose a government system  and what is in Isabel’s best interests, flaws the system.

The state, have complete control.

And, I dread the thought of Isabel’s future.

Physical medical examinations are perfunctory,  by a  nurse/practioner.

50% not even given this superficial observation, if deemed to refuse permission.

Medical conditions, and treatment are not a ‘domain’, in the adult services forms for independent/ now ‘community living’.

There is no central audit, or, control of this medication by anti- psychotic and mood enhancers.

The administration left to individual GPs and CAMH’s teams.

Administered without physical examinations.

No wonder 3 learning disabled die needlessly each day.

It is now three weeks, since the agencies workers, had a hissy fit, and the agency without reason, withdrew their contract.

And over two weeks, since the last email from our social workers, stating she had been unsuccessful in obtaining any other agency cover, again without reason.

No matter how poor, or abusive the service, the provider is paid up front, and there will be no reimbursement of the £200,000 spent on Issy since 2013, nor, the million spent before that, on her abusive NAS residential school.

Under s2 of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, £82,000 can be paid per annum for Issy’s social care, and under the Education Acts more than 50,000, even without SEN until she is 25, and some £73,000 from the NHS.

The funding for her £177,000 NAS school, split between the 3 authorities, and judging by the NHS ringing me last month, to request a home inspection for her continuing health care checklist, this is set to continue in independent living.

Yet, we, can only claim £200 in DLA and Carers Allowance per week, and personal services of 7.50 per hour and administration fee,if we could find our own staff.

Such is the huge financial incentive to encage Issy.

And  the potential for abuse and corruption.

Issy, is a huge cash cow.

And, the love of money, really is, the root of all evil.
