I Have My Reasons To Be Grateful

I have my reasons and here is one of them:
My Dad 1914-2004
Dustin Busch is another.  Dustin is part of my family.  Isaac, my nephew Timothy, and Dustin called each other Brother/Cousin/Friends.  I was "Auntie Mom" how lucky is THAT?!

Dustin has been gone too long...

Thank You Dustin For Your Service to Our Country!  
Thank You to ALL the Men and Women past and present who serve in our Armed Forces!

"PTSD: Military Polypharmacy, & Military Deaths
Sunday, 13 March 2011
"The problem of prescription overdose in the military has its parallel in civilian life.
The tragic overdose victims in both spheres represent canaries in the coal mine--only
the most obvious victims of what has become our national orgy of over using
psychotropic drugs."  Allen Frances MD
Dr. Allen Frances, psychiatry professor emeritus 

and former chairman of psychiatry, Duke University who chaired the DSM-IV 
Task Force revision --i.e., psychiatry's diagnositic / practice manual--has emerged 
as one of the most outspoken, thought provoking critics of psychiatry and its 
diagnostic and prescribing practices.

Dr. Frances recognizes what few US doctors--and hardly any psychiatrists--do:
The  "Hippocratic injunction of "FIRST DO NO HARM" evolved in ancient Greece 
discourage specifically to practitioners from being overly aggressive in using 
dangerous treatments for conditions that are not responding (and may not respond well) 
to existing interventions. 
"It is important to recognize that sometimes the treatment becomes worse than 
the disease."

Indeed, psychiatrists' overprescribing psychotropic drugs have worsened the disease or 
mental disorder they are presumed to be suffering from. Presumed, because as 
Dr. Frances--who chaired the Task Force of the DSM-IV revision-- has acknowledged, 
the concepts that define mental disorders in the DSM are just concepts lacking scientific 
“there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit.  
  I mean, you just can’t define it....these concepts are virtually
              impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.”  

Below, Dr. Frances identifies the problems that have led to increased deaths 
among US troops--and he offers corrective steps to stem the tide of treatment-related deaths."
