The case of "Zombie"

A Christian woman named Rebecca was diagnosed with bi-polar, then a Personality Disorder. Shortly after she was married, she became angry, demanding. She screamed at her husband and kids for little things that bothered her. If her husband told her to grow up, stop yelling and do her housework, she went into a violent uncontrollable rage. He quickly learned to be submissive, let her have her way and never challenge her on anything. This only gave her even more control over her husband and the sinful behaviours got worse. Before he was the head of the house who got yelled at. Now he was a wussified, neutered, subordinate male that got yelled at all the time for no reason. Her husband sought relief from these behaviours and he took his wife to a psychiatrist who diagnosed her with a chemical imbalance in the brain and prescribed Lithium. For thirty years she was under the care of a Psychiatrist and she ingested the Lithium as prescribed. The drugs immediately resolved many of the behaviour issues of anger, yelling etc. but this was because Lithium is a powerful chemical lobotomy drug that creates apathy and indifference. She didn't yell and get angry anymore because she didn't care about anything large or small. She also did little more than sit around the house all day and certainly never worked outside the home. She was functioning at 80% of her executive function and when you talked to Rebecca in church, she was a breathing manikin. Others referred to her as the "Zombie". She never missed any worship service of the local church and would travel to other churches for their gospel meetings. She moved to a new town and came under the care of a medical doctor. This doctor examined Rebecca's case history, consulted with a psychiatrist and discovered that she had been taking a powerful and debilitating anti-psychotic drug when she did not need to! He also determined that Rebecca had been misdiagnosed entirely right from the beginning. Over a period of 6 months, the doctor carefully took Rebecca off the drug. She experienced severe withdraw symptoms. Her mental condition made a dramatic improvement almost immediately. For 30 years Rebecca was a walking zombie during the prime of her life, unable to even do housework or hold down a job. Members of the church have remarked at how she has come alive in her personality and how much of a change they see in Rebecca after being taken off the drugs. Rebecca is able to function and socialize in a normal way. Looking back, Rebecca describes herself as being is a drug induced stupor, a chemical lobotomy. She is angry at her Psychiatrist and the fact she had nothing medically wrong with her right from the beginning except a bit of stress, common to everyday life and a number of behaviour issues that she needed to address.

Discussion:

Rebecca was a young wife and mother with serious behaviour issues. She was selfish, lacked self-control, had a vicious temper if she did not get her own way and had a sense of entitlement over her husband. These are the behaviours that get you diagnosed with any "personality disorder". For the world to label a Christian with any "personality disorder" means the individual has a lot of changes to make and repenting to do. Rebecca would get hyper (manic) and out of control, then later she would be depressed and start crying. She was essentially drugged into submission by atheistic evolutionary doctors. Like most Christians even today, her husband didn't realize the evils of biopsychiatry.

"Movies about mental hospitals or psychiatric treatment sometimes accurately depict how psychiatric drugs can turn people into zombies. In The Dream Team, a comedy starring Michael Keaton, mental patients successfully masquerade as doctors. The patients manage to escape by prescribing enforced medication for the psychiatrists themselves, who are last seen staring in a drugged stupor at the TV on a hospital ward. To some extent, at least, this zombie effect can render people temporarily unable to harm themselves or others. For instance, "antipsychotic" drugs, which can be injected into the muscles to quickly subdue resistant patients, are used in this way in emergency rooms, hospitals, and prisons. The resistant patients are chemically controlled by the numbing effect on the brain. This procedure has accurately been called a "chemical lobotomy." "Antipsychotic" drugs also suppress the brain centers that control voluntary movement, rendering the person unable to respond with any speed, agility, or determination-thus warranting the descriptive phrase "pharmacological straitjacket."" (Your Drug May Be Your Problem, Peter Breggin, David Cohen, 2007 AD, p 57)

Benefits from behaviour: This illustrates the Law of Narcissistic Behaviour Choice (NBC) EDS-7.7.1.NBC

1. Attention seeking, Pride, Praise, Honour, Fame: EDS-7.4.3. When a child stomps around and makes a fuss, it usually means they want attention.

2. Escape duty or life situation: EDS-7.4.4. Rebecca chose a path that gave her an excuse from doing all the very hard work of being a young mother and housekeeper.

3. Sympathy: EDS-7.4.5. Debbie felt all the hard work she was enduring as a young mother needed to be not praised on one hand, but she loved people telling her how hard done by she is. Such sympathy she received when the entire church for 30 years, gave her a "get out of work" card because they wrongly believed she was sick with a medical problem that drugs fixed.

4. Control over others: EDS-7.4.6. It is common for some young wives to look for ways to control their husbands. By becoming psychotic, Rebecca could call the shots by simple sitting down and starting to cry or screaming if she did not get her way.

Rebecca paid a stiff price for her immaturity and selfishness because it cost her 30 years of her life. Her conduct at home at some horrible effects upon her children from a spiritual point of view. The only reason she is still married to her husband, is because he took every stop possible to make her happy by giving in to her whims. When children must endure a dominant, screaming, overpowering mother and a passive, submissive father, it is not the family structure God ordained it to be. For the kids, it was like having your foot on the gas and brake at the same time. Rebecca created a tense, "walking on egg shells", "don't upset your mother" kind of environment. Rather than a model of adult mature femininity the way God intended, they had to endure a monster.

Neither she, her husband or the church knew that she had thrown herself into the hands of the devil who kept her a non-functioning, non-contributing member of the church that causes problems for her husband at home. Once she endured the painful withdrawal symptoms that everyone experiences after one or two years of pharmakia (Gal 5), she found herself right where she was in her personal development 30 years earlier. She suddenly had to learn that which she refused to learn 30 years earlier. The drugs did not help her correct her behaviours, they merely made her so lethargic, that she didn't care to be angry any more. Think of Rebecca as a 25 year old young mother who is in a coma for 30 years and suddenly she wakes up. Although her body is 30 years older, her maturity is still that of a 25 year old. Now that she is off the drugs forever, she is once again feeling things that make her angry and demand attention and control over her husband. However now, she is learning self-control to correct her sinful behaviour, not a drug. This story illustrates how incredibly uninformed most Christians are about the evils of psychiatry. Withdrawal effects from long term use of neuroleptics are severe and becoming drug free requires direct supervision of a doctor. In church she heard many sermons warning of illicit drug use and addictions, yet for 30 years she never comprehended she just as bad a junkie as the guy shooting heroin 5 times a day.

The Case of Georgia:

"Four months later, no longer taking antidepressants, Georgia felt like she was "alive" for the first time in years. She had completely forgotten how much zest she had for living. The drug had been suppressing her vitality without her realizing it. She had mistakenly thought she was chronically depressed and in desperate need of continued medication." (Your Drug May Be Your Problem, Peter Breggin, David Cohen, 2007 AD, p 76)

The case of Greg:

"The next five years passed pretty much as his psychiatrists had predicted. Although Greg entered Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in Massachusetts, he was so heavily medicated that, he says, "I was living in a haze most of the time. Your mind is just a bag of sand. And so I did really poorly in school. I rarely even left my room, and I was kind of out of touch with reality." ... He [Greg] went for a medical checkup, thinking this would be a first step toward reducing his medications, only to be informed that he needed to stop taking Depakote and Geodon right away, as his liver was shutting down. The abrupt withdrawal induced such physical pain-"sweats, joint and muscle pain, nausea, dizziness," he says-that he didn't even pay attention to whether his paranoia was coming back. But in very short order, he was off all of his psychiatric drugs, except for occasional use of a stimulant, and he had also stopped smoking marijuana. "Honestly, it felt like I was waking up for the first time in five years," he says. "It felt like I had been turned off all those years and had just been rolling through life and I was being pushed around in a wheelchair and finally I had woken up and had gotten back to being myself again. I felt like the drugs took away everything that was me, and then when I went off the drugs, my brain woke up and started working again. ." (Anatomy of an Epidemic, Robert Whitaker, 2010 AD, p 202)

Diagnostic laws that are seen illustrated in the case of "Zombie":

Rebecca had calculated that the label of "bi-polar" was a cost she was willing to pay if she gained the benefits of control and didn't have to do basic household duties. This illustrates the Law of Derivative Personal Benefit (DPB) EDS-7.7.2.DPB

Although she claimed she couldn't do housework, even blaming it on the drug, there were lots of things that interested Rebecca, like knitting, that she mastered with great skill. This illustrates the Law of Narcissistic Selective Dysfunction (NSD) EDS-7.7.3.NSD

Rebecca was willing to create lot of trouble and work for her husband that she herself was trying to escape. This illustrates the Law of Domino Problem Transference (DPT) EDS-7.7.4.DPT

Rebecca's sinful behaviour bothered and annoyed her husband. Finally, it got so bad that he sought psychiatrists to find relief from her annoyances. He found the relief in Lithium that quieted his wife down to a zombie. Although the drugs never fixed the problems, they reduced the intensity and frequency of her immature rages to a tolerable level. This illustrates the Law of Annoyance Toleration Threshold (ATT) EDS-7.7.5.ATT

For 30 years the doctor derived tens of thousands of dollars by keeping her on his client list. It mattered not that she had no quality of live as long as he made money. This illustrates the Law of Symbiotic Treasury Parasitosis (STP) EDS-7.7.6.STP

A young child could easily identify that Rebecca was a spoiled out of control bully that threw a temper tantrum if she did not get her way. A child would say of her, "Why does she throw a tantrum when she doesn't get her way?" This illustrates the Law of Pediatric Multifarious Obfuscation (PMO) EDS-7.7.12.PMO

Rebecca's kids are now all grown up and she has a huge hole in her life that can never be filled. In a way, her choice to endure drugging for 30 years as long as she was free to do what she wanted, instead of discharging the duties she was required to do by God, is very much like the parable of the ten talents. She is the slave who buried her talent in the sand for 30 years and made no personal maturity gains. Fortunately Rebecca can see the evil's of the psychiatric system she chose to endure and deeply regrets the path her life has taken. After five year of escaping the addiction of Lithium she now openly confesses that the solution to her problems 30 years ago resided in her own will power and obedience to God, not a pill.
