I am sick of these injections because they are making me sick.

22:37 Posted on Facebook.com

Without Prejudice*

No matter how much you mentally torture me, now matter what you inject me with, no matter the side effects and demons I fight because of your drugs, you will never win this war. The more you push me to suicide, the more I will push you to expose the truth. You can destroy my body and take away my life, yet you will never take away my Spirit.

Pharmaceutical drugs and incarceration is not the answer.

You are dealing with Human Beings and you are dealing with innocent people. I don’t care any more what you do to me.

You call this system Mental Health, yet all I have seen in my dealings with your archaic system is Mental Torture.

Not once did you give encouragement, not once did you nurture and not once did you comfort the lost souls.

May the devil be consumed by its own darkness and evil, and may the Glory of God’s love shine upon those Spirits who emit the Light of Heaven. For those of you who fight for your justice and rights, may you taste the sweetness of Victory.

We are not pawns and we are not guinea pigs or lab rats in your experiments.

We will win this War. You will never kill the Spirit of truth.

We Are God In The Chrysalis.

He said I could have my phone and other devices being a laptop, smart TV, ipad etc. He said I would have 1 hour per week extra over 4 weeks to get to my 4 hours leave. We got into a heated discussion over medication titration. He stated in my last meeting that he would reduce my medication to 400MG over 6 weeks if everything was travelling smoothly. I said you are a fucking liar as he was lying about titrating it and he said he didn’t say anything about about reducing my medication and that it would be staying the same till discharge. With my outburst he said the meeting was finished. Bill tried to make me settle down yet I was upset that he lied. I stated that what he said was on CIMHA and that he sat in that chair (I pointed to chair) when he promised me that he would reduce the medication. He went back on his word and threatened me that he would increase my medication. With that I stood up and I said are you threatening me, and he said no. Once again I said are you threatening me and he said no. With that Celeste Lynn came into the room and tried to calm things down. I said to Celeste that he was a liar and that I didn’t want him as my Doctor. Celeste asked me to go into her office.

I went into Celeste’s office and we talk about my issues. Celeste said foremost that my leave needed to be done and that we would look into the medication issue at another time. I said that I didn’t want Agilan as my Doctor and wanted to change teams immediately. Celeste kept saying Agilan was a good doctor and I said he can hardly speak proper audible English and that I don’t like him and neither does my parents. I stated that he was in my country and that he had to adopt our ways. Celeste said I was being racist and I said I was not. I stated that his bedside manners are appalling and that I don’t think he is fit to run this unit. Celeste said she would organize the LCT to be signed and that she would get back to me.

Dear Hon. Steven Miles

Firstly let me say that I appreciate the work of Karen and Gwen who have
spoken to me at length about my current situation.

I am experiencing complete displeasure from the current treatment I am
receiving from Queensland Health's Mental Health services.

I am being bullied and taken advantage of by two Doctors, namely Dr
Sivagnanam Agilan and Dr Rupak Dasgupta.

It is bordering on mental torture the way I am being treated at present,
as I am not being listened to, nor are my human rights being acknowledged.

I write to you that my files are examined by your office, and that I be
placed on the inquiry for the hearing into Mental Health services in the
Townsville region.

I would like this matter to be resolved in a timely manner and that I am
protected for speaking out against these Doctors.

I appreciate your time and look forward to your response.

Kind regards

Jeff Geaney

Sunday 28th October

13:30 Drive with Bill to Pallarenda, Strand and Coles.

15:10 I asked Daniel Ferguson why Mental Health Inventory was not looked into before the decision was made to increase me medication and revoke my leave. I said surely there would have been early warning signs from that if there were any problems. He said that was a very good question and that he would look into my matter and notes this afternoon. I said that is what I was being told by other Nurses that they would look into my matter. I said am I too much like hard work. He said no and that he would get back to me this afternoon. I left it at that.

    You understand a whole lot its almost tough to
    argue with you (not that I actually will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic that’s been written about for a long time.
    Excellent stuff, just wonderful!

  4. I think everything wrote made a lot of sense.

    However, think on this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
    I am not saying your content is not solid, however suppose you added a headline to maybe get people’s
    attention? I mean JezusChrist.com – AusInvestigations.com is kinda vanilla.
    You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create news headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get people
    interested about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring
    your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks
    weird when viewing from my apple iphone. I’m trying
    to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!
