Doctors don't care. I had a dr for 14 yrs, Dr John Genier in Fairport, NY. His license should be taken away. I several auto-immune dieases and post concussive syndrome (nerve damage). I have been in chronic pain for 14 yrs. He decided I should be on anti-depressants and threatened to drop me if I didn't take even though depression was result of chronic pain, not other way around. I couldn't lose dr since he was handling so many health issues for me. So I took, made me extremely depressed, out of it, disconnected, didn't care about anything. Made me want to hurt myself even though I don't believe in. I told him and he did nothing. Was told by his peers on wknd calls to forget about recent rape and get a good nights sleep. Went to ER after rape, they sent me home and never did an exam or got me help or police to file rpt. Told police and dr what happened, never even took clothes that had DNA on them. No one did anything. Everyone said unless suicidal could not help me. So I overdosed on tylenol thinking hosp would then have to help me. Nope, not allowed to discuss rape, they refused to do an exam until I threatened to sue hosp, dr dropped me. Had no $, no food, no job due to numerous hlth issues and now PTSD from rape. Was told by hosp drs to forget rape ever happened and they would provide therapist. Wrong, when I left they refused to help with social svcs, money or food or therapist. I know if I hadn't gotten depressed from anti-depressant I never would have been alone downtown and never been raped and would never have all the financial and emotional issues I now have. All because of Sertraline and Dr Genier refusing to monitor me as was his duty on a controlled substance. No one should EVER take anti depressants!!!!!! They will slowly kill you and make you lose it. Parents, never listen to the doctors!!!! Get therapy, no drugs. Find a good doctor, not your PCP. Anyone seeing Dr John Genier in Fairport, NY in Rochester should immediately drop him due to severe inability to properly treat and take care of his patients. And by the way, Rochester, NY hospitals will NOT do rape exams in ER, will not get help from RAPE crisis or police to take clothes/rpt etc. Anyone raped in Rochester, NY should immediately go to Syracuse or Buffalo for help instead. GET OFF THE ANTI-DEPRESSANTS, IF RAPED DO NOT SEEK HELP IN ROCHESTER - DRS, RAPE CRISIS, ERS - NONE WILL HELP YOU!!!!!! I am supposedly now on Medicare, but no one will help me w/-$512 bank acct, am losing my home, am supposed to be on SSI and getting disability but that hasn't started yet, am slowly starving to death w/ no food, rapist calls me on private calls 10x a day/night and police won't do anything to find him. Have been so mistreated by police/system and because I don't belive in suicide, really hope a car hits me soon and is fatal.

Dear Anon,

You say that the doctors, the police and the hospitals will not help you after being raped, and that the person who raped you continues to stalk you daily through telephone calls.

Surely there must be a rape crisis hotline in your area that you could call where there should be people who deal with this specific type of crisis and could help you.

Generally, as a rule, the poor people in America have fewer rights than the wealthy do, I know it is not fair, but the rulers of the world are mainly focuses on making themselves richer rather than giving to the poor to make their lives more bearable. Wrong as that is, people are just that way unfortunately.

Money and position, and people you know in high places is what generally gets you helped out.

Since you do have a computer, I suggest you search online for rape crisis centers in your local area and write of call them on the phone and tell them what is happening to you and see if they can help you.

Concerning your putting yourself in a bad place, being down town during hours that are known to be unsafe, you need to not do that anymore.

We have to keep ourselves from being in places that are not safe places.

If down town is bad and people get raped and robbed, then don’t go there.

The fire burns when we put our hand in it, so we don’t put our hand it and then we don’t get burned.

If you get a SS check and your running out of food, take an inventory of what you are spending your SS check on, and cut out the things that are not necessary. Things like alcohol and cigarettes maybe. I don’t know if you do those, but they are very expensive and we need food more than we need those kinds of things, so maybe you need to work with pen and paper on what you are buying with your SS check.

I have to do that since my SS is very very small too, so there are many things I cannot buy, and I eat a lot of pinto beans and oatmeal. It may not turn heads in Hollywood, but it keeps me alive.

I just did a Google search for Fairport NY rape crisis, and a lot of links came up, here is one of them you can look at and see if they are close to you.

http://maps.google.com/maps...

Maybe you will find someone at one of these places close to you who can help.

God bless you, and keep in touch.

May the LORD bless you and keep you,

May the LORD illuminate you with His Countenance, and grant you His Grace.

May the LORD’s presence surround you and bless you with His Peace.

Anon, you don't have to die. You've been abused by the world and don't know where to turn.

I relate to your story so much it's amazing.

But there is a way out for you, with Jesus Christ. I know this because he healed and delivered me from the horrible mess my own life was in, and set me on my feet again.

You need to know that you have a supernatural power, which is God Almighty, that will move these mountains out of your life just like He has for me and countless others.

God will make a way where there seems to be a way, because he's the God of the impossible.

That's why, anymore, I don't have to worry when trouble comes knocking on my door. I have someone bigger and stronger than any devil on earth.

I am praying for you dear one. You have a friend here.

Physicians do not practice medicine.They practice insurance policy care and do whats best for the pharmaceutical companies that will save the insurance carrier money in the long run.It's going to get alot worse with obama's health care reform giving more power to the insrarnce companies that will have your physicians mask the problems with pills while preventing a diagnosis.[Pre Existing injuries]a phrase that you hear over and over.Now obama has given the insurance carriers more ammunition to hide the real diagnosis, provide treatment and send you on your merry way without the lay person knowing what is happening in health care today.

An advertisement for generic zoloft is not a good source of imformation,Thomas.It's the worse source,wake up and smell the coffee.Better yet make it your constitution to get up out of bed each morning and take a long walk,it will be more effective than the pills you think are a cure all.Change your lifestyle habits that are detrimental and you will feel better about yourself.

Therapies do help but usually, it would take some time for the changes to be observed. Most, if not all of us would usually choose the quicker way of managing the symptoms by using medications. http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com/s...

It is true that using antidepressants alone will not help resolve the issues causing the anxiety and depression. Psychotherapy is the major component of the success and antidepressants help in managing the symptoms. Although the using antidepressants also has some downside and that is the side effects associated with the drug. The use of antidepressants can be beneficial for some who are not experiencing any severe side effects with the drug. You can read all about it at http://www.paxilbirthdefectlaw.com/paxil-info... .

Pharmaceutical companies pay for research, meaning they "publish" results they choose regarding dangerous drugs. These same companies also run hospitals, nursing schools, and give a kickback to a facility per written prescription. They also hire Washington lobbyists.

The many side effects associated with Zoloft have led the FDA to issue a black box warning. This warning contains the reason why Zoloft should not be taken lightly. Know more about it at http://www.zoloftsertralinebirthdefects.com/z...
