It is Child Abuse if a person with Mental Illness procreates?

This whole thing leaves me speechless – the cruelty of other people’s words and opinions who think it is child abuse if you choose to have children if you have been diagnosed bipolar and then slam them with vile and hateful remarks on their blog which is dedicated to people who have to contend with the mental disability of being bipolar? I was blown away by these nasty remarks. Do they think the children of people with depression and mood swings don’t love and care for their children? Do you think the people who said these things are go parents? Should they have aborted their pregnancies or should they put them up for adoption even if they wanted their babies. I am shocked and disgusted. Below the line is the reply I left on the blog that exposed the remarks of the vile creature who left them. This is a link to the The Lithium Chronicals Please go there to leave your comments of support.

Many of my writings here and at My Name Is Jamie. Life In Prison  expose, in my opinion what is wrong in our society. You aren’t required to agree with me. But If you don’t stand up and actively try to change the direction this country is headed in then you are part of the problem.

Would I want any of those people to be MY parent?? The major social ills of our society are passed down to the children by teaching them to be prejudiced about many things. Children grow up thinking it is okay to pass judgement on other people. They don’t learn it on their own. It comes from the adults in their life. The adults learned it the same way. They often learn to be hateful from their religious training in issues of gender and other issues that don’t agree with their faith, although that isn’t an absolute. Some parents just had parents of their that were negative and hateful.

People aren’t born racist and prejudiced. Children learn that it is okay to be intolerant and the children grow up to be adults like this. Sadly, not only can it not be stopped, it’s going to get worse. One reason is because the religious right is using politics to insist more and more that we use God’s law instead of the constitution to determine right and wrong. In this election year with so many professed devout Christians trying to prove they are the best Christian to run this country there are more people who think they have the right to put down people who don’t think like them – refusing to do business with gays – refusing to issue marriage licenses because it’s against their beliefs and have other people cheer them on. Our country is sick. Those in power want this kind of dissention – people turning on other people. It distracts them from the real issues.

I know I’ve gotten off the subject. I tend to rant when I’m pissed. But this is part of the bigger issue that has cultivated a generation of outspoken hate. It is often a topic I write about on my blogs.

Bipolar First Bipolar Together

That is what people on reddit have hurled at the beautiful soul that is Nicole Lyons. Nicole writes the blog The Lithium Chronicles.

If it can happen to one of us.  It can happen to any of us.

She is a brave Bipolar mama.  Putting it out there.  Being honest.  Fighting stigma.  Saving lives.

She wrote this post talking about how she did NOT feel guilty for having children.

I thought it was awesome and I tweeted her right away to tell her so.  She also made me feel brave enough to out myself as a mom on my blog although I have since taken the post down because it felt too raw to me.  Maybe I will have to put it back up for her.  I have another Bipolar parent post that I have been sitting on in which I actually quoted Nicole from her piece.

NYC Sends $30M a Year to School With History of Giving Kids Electric Sh

……It makes me angry and it hurts my heart to see children being abused, often with the parent not understanding where they are putting their child or it is a last resort because they’ve tried everything. Much of this problem is caused by the lack of mental services. How can it be that this is true? After closing down facilities years ago and not providing an alternative, what options do people have?  If a city is recommending a place for you to send your kids when you have no other options shouldn’t you be able to trust that the place is not going to torture your kids?  Since what they receive is definitely not help, what happens when these children become adults?  Where do they go when they are unable too to get get their lives together?  They go to PRISON.  That is where they can continue to be tortured and no one will see the torturers.

NYC Sends $30M a Year to School With History of Giving Kids Electric Shocks



The Judge Rotenberg Center, a Boston-area school for kids with severe developmental disabilities and behavior disorders, has earned national notoriety[4] for a long record of brutal techniques to keep children in line.

Electric shocks. Restraints. Hunger.

Federal and state authorities have repeatedly[5]scrutinized[6] the school. Even the United Nations’ Special Rapporteur on torture has chimed in[7].

But New York City kids are still being sent there. Indeed, nearly 90 percent of the school’s students — 121 of 137 kids — are from New York City, including 29 who enrolled this year. New York’s taxpayers send the Center $30 million a year.

The flow has continued despite records obtained by ProPublica showing the…

This 1956 guidebook for black travelers is an incredible reminder of America’s racist realities

………Interesting. I didn’t know something like this existed. I haven’t had a chance yet to read it, but I will be. If you are white, like I am, we cannot fathom what it is like to walk in the shoes of people who had to deal with situations that were not common for us.

During the Jim Crow era, traveling in the United States for African-Americans was difficult and often dangerous. Motels and restaurants didn’t have to serve you if they didn’t want to. “Sundown towns”—places where it was unsafe to be black at night—dotted the nation’s geography. If you were driving around the country, the only way to know if you were safe was by word-of-mouth.

But a black civic leader named Victor H. Green came up with a better, more permanent solution. In the early 1930s, he began publishing a compendium of tips…

Hemp Oil – To Fix What Ails You?

Why is hemp oil against the law? Do corporations want it to be illegal so you have no choice but to use more pharmaceuticals and make drug companies richer?  Is information withheld from you so you feel there is no choice? What is the rate of cure between help oil and pharmaceutical drugs for what ails you?

When I was younger I smoked a fair amount of pot. Actually, I smoked a lot of pot, even through my pregnancies, and had 2 healthy babies. I knew then about the hype the media plastered everywhere – that pot led to harder drugs was a massive smear campaign, for the very reasons that are talked about here. The corporations or pharmaceutical companies couldn’t make a profit from it. So, since they owned the way information was distributed, everyone was told over and over about the evils of marijuana. Something that had been used for more centuries than I know of was all of a sudden this horrible, dangerous thing.

Remember the 1950’s cult movie called “Reefer Madness”? It’s hysterically funny now, but it was very real then. They had to make people believe that pot was a very dangerous drug. So horrible that we had to lock up tens of thousands of people multiple times over who had even one small ‘roach’ found in their car, and they became criminals, which in turn helped to fill the prisons. It had to become a criminal offense – a very, very profitable criminal offense.

We all know this story and we know they are trying to get some of these people out of prison now. To balance it out there is a major push to lock up illegal aliens instead of just sending them back home. New prisons being made and auctioned off to the highest bidder with the promise of an endless supply of people so the corporations that own the prisons can make a lot of money by imprisoning and destroying the lives of people they consider to have no value.

These are the people who own America and we feel powerless to do anything about it. They have the money and own the politicians. Do you remember this past year the man who was seriously sick, with tumors on his head that were very visible, and he and his family were growing pot to be made into hemp oil as a last ditch effort to save his life? Then and he and his family got busted under the guise of intent to distribute because they had quite a few plants. It takes a lot of leaf to make the oil. They took away his help oil. There were petitions going around to try to save him and it didn’t work. He appeared in court in a wheel chair and they still convicted him and sent him to prison, where he died. They couldn’t be that stupid. They knew what they were doing. They were sending a message that said no one was off limits. What was their point? Did they think they were breaking up a big drug ring? Did they need a conviction so bad they were willing to destroy people to get it? Obviously, yes. They killed him and destroyed his family – because they could. I haven’t checked – are his family members locked up? Anyone know?

Now, we have some states where it is legal to buy pot and some where it isn’t. How does that work? You can buy it one state and if you cross the border they can bust you with it? I don’t know, can they? This country is going crazy. The one percenters are trying to take your mind off the people we really should be going after – the corporations who are committing crimes against humanity.

One thing I do know – I quit smoking pot about 15 years ago because all it did was make me sleepy – and want to eat, which is one reason why it is good for chemo patients. I’m not looking to get high. Been there done that. I also seriously doubt I would ever do chemo again. Once was enough for me. What I did was not the same kind of chemo treatment most people do. Mine was massively injected right into tumors to slow their growth. Whoops, a few weeks later, my below the waist length hair lay on the bottom of my bath tub. I have to take medications now that lower my immune system so my body won’t reject a liver transplant. Taking those medications leaves my body defenseless from any kind of cancer cell that might want to make me their new home. I recently lost a friend who had to take those same medications for a transplant and she fought like hell through horrible treatments. She still died. Next time, if it is my time to go then it is my time to go. But if I had the option of being able to do a natural treatment like help oil then I would do it and I’d start today if I had it.

I quit smoking pot before because it wasn’t fun anymore, just like going out and drinking wouldn’t be fun, either. Our bodies change and what we do for fun changes. I’d rather dig in my garden for fun. But I’m not looking at this from a fun stand point. Would this help me now with some of the medical issues I have? Would it make my life a little less painful? That is something I’m going to check out. I don’t know if it has any kind of mind altering effects, but if I could open my eyes in the morning and not reach to the table on my right for my pain medicine before I even put my glasses on, that would be a wonderful thing, wouldn’t it?

It looks like this video is about skin cancer, but it isn’t. It is about curing things in your body in a different way then going to the drug store to fill your prescriptions and making the drug companies wealthy.

My Name is Jamie. My Life in Prison

It doesn’t get more disgusting than this.  I recently had a conversation with a Christian therapist here on WordPress. I had the misfortune of reading one of his blog posts. I couldn’t get past the fact that he thought, not only was being gay wrong, it was something someone could just pray away. He also teaches this to his children.  And if one of his own children were gay, do you think it would scare him enough that he would never be able to tell his father. Would his father shun him if he couldn’t pray his gayness away?  Would he be embarrassed for anyone to know that he was unsuccessful in changing his child’s sexual orientation.  If not his own child, is this how he would counsel the parents of children who are gay? His children will grow up and pass this same intolerance to their own children who…

Youth in solitary confinement
Photo credit :

Doing this to children, how is it ever possible for them to be sane functioning adults when what they learn as children is how to treat the world. If often only takes truancy or an afternoon fight or a childish prank for children to get sucked into the juvy system. Once there ” breaking any rule” can have them put into solitary confinement. Then they get angry. They are broken. They fight for survival any way they can. Go to to not only read of a man’s life who started in juvy, but also to go to the many links on the right side that will tell you much more about the solitary confinement of youth.


The City That Believed in Desegregation

This is a good website to follow if you’re interested in inequalities our the police state we’re headed to because we know now that the policeman is no longer our friend.

This post has, is about a good thing, it tells us of a city that has a better system of raising children that teaches them from kindergarten who to make friends with all races. If more school districts were like this we’d have less kids growing up to be racist because they learn that all people are born equal. The money in each household may be different, but money is not the mark of a good or bad human. Minorities would a better chance if the concept of inner city school mentality was gone.

Hawthorne Elementary in Louisville, Kentucky, looks like what you might imagine a typical American suburban elementary school to be, with students’ art projects displayed in the hallways and brightly colored rugs and kid-sized tables and chairs in the classrooms. It’s located in a predominantly white neighborhood. But the students look different than those in many suburban schools across America. Some have dark skin, others wear headscarves, others are blonde and blue-eyed. While many of them qualify for free and reduced lunches, others bring handmade lunches in fancy thermal bags and come from well-off families.

Ever since a court forced them to integrate in the 1970s, the city of Louisville and surrounding Jefferson County have tried to maintain diverse schools.Louisville and Jefferson County have tried to maintain diverse schools. Though the region fought the integration at first, many residents and leaders came around to the idea, and even…
