All lesions necrosis
I live in chronic pain and fatigue

Had to have 3 dialysis treatments.. Blood sugar went up here
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Right away the drugs seemed to help incredibly well. However I went through & had to take on more harassment, unethical legal issues, abuse from children's father, death threats, premeditated murder, the father engaged parental kidnapping over half a year.
All of which law officials, child services, lawyers, & courts failed to cooperate & help the children & I.
When I took on too much it was like the drugs prescribed enhanced my depression, anxiety, moods, anger, thoughts of giving up. It was almost involuntary. I had to terrify the evaluating psychiatrist with the word "possession". It was a feeling of not being in control of my emotions / chemical physics.
I was raised, while having a preacher for a grandfather & extremely religious upbringing, that suicide was an abomination & 1 way ticket to hell thus not ever an option by any means. I'm concerned patients who are mindlessly prescribed these chemical altering drugs should be & aren't having their chemical levels & life matters monitored closely enough if at all.
The suicide attempt has made the courts take my custody rights & children despite treatment.
This was no premeditated suicide attempt or event. It followed sever unethical life struggles. While dealing with all life matters listed above I was informed my eldest son, who also attempted suicide at age 11 on highly questionable medications while undergoing intensive trauma therapy, was then admitted into Lakeland mental behavioral health hospital. It was there he came forward about sexual abuse allegations against the abusive father. Again no help or even proper investigating or ethical law practices by detectives, child services, lawyers, & courts, it seemed hopeless. It was too much ultimately leading to an uncontrolled unacceptable suicide attempt.
I can attest to being a very strong individual who does not give up.
I am of sound mind now having been off all pharmaceuticals since December of 2013.
I'm still struggling with everything awful stated above, still no help.
I get sad, I get upset but it feels & is recognized as a normal chemical response. I am in control of my emotions now vs, a perhaps wonderful drug like Prozac & atarax, which is helpful in a lot of cases. For me particularly, it definitely became a risk that outweighed the benefit. After 6 months of use it didn't even seem to help anymore. It seemed to only keep me in a hopeless state. I've lived with severe hives caused by stress & anxiety for 2 years now & the hydroxyzine & use of steroid cream offered mild relief but doesn't help anymore.
The courts need to understand & have proof of evaluation that the drugs did in fact have an adverse effect on me. They & the abusive father are responsible for my unnecessary struggles certainly. Seeking pharmaceutical relief was not something I ever wanted but the stress was awe full. I even walked out on a job I loved to seek medical relief & my job as well was not ethical & patient with my recovery thus adding to more distress. The children's attorney needs a clear understanding of the possible risk & dangers of these medications. He's ignorant to the situation entirely & clearly uneducated medically.
In my case particularly the family courts need a sturdy medical explanation.

I had severe almost convulsing tremors, I made myself throw up the medication and the tremors subsided. My body feels really sore from the intensity of the tremors but I feel a lot better. I won't continue taking this medication, it was a nightmare.
