No science to the mental health industry.

No medical model, no evidence based medicine and they lied about chemical imbalance to drug the population.

Military

Here's a hint for the military Generals, Admirals and other strategic military planners on terms they may understand concerning violence, murder and suicides in the military and the mental health industry:

Well, these guys need help and it's apparent their not getting it. Being treated like a human being might help, or with more compassion considering what they've been through.

There is a lot of compassion for them. I was a soldier unlike you who have no background in combat. I saw and witnessed the weasels of the mental health industry hanging around the bases for the discharged solgier offering them perminent disability to have their brains boiled in the toxic pharmacutical mind drugs.

I also noticed the military could not get the female US nurses and had to resort to Filipino and European nurse to tend to the wounded.

History lesson.

WWII

The returning GI's (USA) from the European war had other problems to combat with his return home.

In many cases, GI's by transport back to the USA (after the war) were returned by merchant ships or military ships and found no one to meet them at the Naval yards. The family was gone. The lady wasn't there.

The GI were indigent, broke because GI pay was allotted to the wife back home.

When the GI hitch hiked home (if he could) the solgier found the home was sold. No trace of the wife, kids or the new Studebaker car.

What happened:

It was an unfortunate situation for the wife that the husband didn't die on the battle fields in Europe because she wouldn't receive the GI bill (10000 dollars) so in that case, the wife filed for divorce when she found out the war was over and the husband was returning home.

In the petition for divorce the wife stated her husbands whereabouts was unknown, it was printed in the paper (legality of the court) with time and place of the court hearing. The GI never saw the legal notice in the paper because he the middle of the Atlantic and homeward bound and so he never had a way to contact the court with a answer to the petition for divorce.

The result was:

A default was filed against him in court for failing to appear. The wife received everything including the kids. This caused the reason for the United States Code "Soldier / Sailors Relief Act of 1940 (amended) that incorporated the statement in divorce petitions (in use today) "Not a member of the armed forces of the United States"

Today the children are just taken by psychotherapy and psych-drugs and the bonding broken between parent and child.

History is interesting

I'll write on the history of importing nurses from Europe for the Vietnam war because the military was unable to secure the female (USA) in the nursing trade.

I don't know why you thought I was disagreeing with your post. I happened to agree with you. No, I didn't serve in the military. Instead, I raised three young sons after my husband died at a very young age.

In your next post, you sound bitter, as if you personally got the shaft by a wife after a tenure in the service. If that's the case, I'm very sorry. It's a personal embarrassment to me that some women can be so evil. I've known a few. but surely you don't think all military wives resorted to such evil behavior, even though I don't doubt for a minute that some did, just as you've stated.

Not bitter at all. I study history and the mental health industry is my project.

My own war, childhood. I'm not whining or comparing, but it was bad. I'm screwed up in my head.
My story is long. I don't bother writting about it any more.

Sorry about your husband. Was your husband military? Raising three children is a difficult chore alone.

He was Air Force, but died later, as I said, prematurely at a very young age. He was an air craft mechanic and had been exposed to that toxic solvent that has caused so many health problems, cancers, etc in the guys that had to use the stuff.
I don't think the military takes very good care of their people from what I've been studying online.

Sorry about your husband. His profession and the toxic exposure have been well known since the late 1960's

The VA is a selling point for the Pharmacutical Industry.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
