This article (also on Natural News) says there are pharmaceutical company damage-control people swarming over Aurora, CO now, trying to find out what drugs the Batman shooter James Holmes was on.
His shrink, Dr. Lynne Fenton, was reprimanded a few years ago for prescribing drugs to herself and others and not putting it in their patient records. I have a feeling she's going to be made to take the fall for this, and the drugs themselves will not be blamed. But they should, even if she's also at fault.
What can we do about this?
Just get off the psych meds if you're on them. They're no good for most people, but they're overprescribed because they're big money. If you're on Prozac, Paxil, etc. (any psych med but especially SSRI's) and you think it's making you crazier than you were, not working, or if it's making you twitch, or not be able to have an orgasm, or anything else annoying like that, you might want to wean yourself from them and try something else. Some people have had luck treating their own psych problems with large doses of Vitamin B. Others have tried sitting in front of a bank of full spectrum light bulbs for a period of time per day. (sunlight helps - I don't know why they don't just go outside instead). Vitamin D deficiencies also can make you feel blah.
Or you could try changing the things that bother you about your life. In my opinion this is a much better solution than drugging up and checking out. It's just hard work cutting through the inertia. The mental part, the decision to do something major like that, is the hard part. After the decision is made, the rest is only a matter of logistics.
The other consideration is, when the SHTF those meds may not be available, and you don't want to go cold turkey on SSRI's. It can really damage you, or at least give you hallucinations, and make your feet sweat really bad. Also trying to wean off them WHILE the SHTF would be hard as well, even if you didn't need to go cold turkey. Better to do it now.
