Alison Hymes case: you're on your own Alison

This is the answer Senator Mark Warner sent me:

Sen. Mark Warner's Office
25 Sep (2 days ago)
to me

Dear Mrs. Lima,

Thank you for contacting me regarding  your views on the case of Alison Hymes.  As we work in the Senate to meet the enormous challenges facing this country, including efforts to strengthen our economy, create new private sector jobs, reduce the federal deficit and establish energy independence, your views and those of your fellow Virginians are very important to me.

I am honored to serve Virginia as your United States Senator.  My top priority in the Senate is to provide efficient and effective constituent service to all Virginians.  Please be sure that my office will review your comments carefully as I consider and vote on relevant legislation.

Again, thank you for contacting me.  For further information or to sign up for my newsletter please visit my website at

United States Senator

Clearly this is a message at the Senator sends for all of those who write to him. It is a form and the blanks are just after the words "you views on _________________ ."this time filled with "the case of Alison Hymes".
It is a propaganda and, as always, a "vote for me" requisition.

I have already published the answer of the Virginia's governor Bob McDowell where it is explained how the state and federal is prepared to leave things the way they are: the patient locked and receiving treatments that cannot be revealed.
There are laws, human rights regulators, lawyers, doctors, judges and politicians working to keep people in the loonies. We know that what happens in manicomios. We know how dreadful, heinous and criminal the treatment given to anyone who is labelled a mental disease is.

Mr. Bob McDowell's answer is shameful and should be used as an example of how the system close the doors to any hold the patient's as a subhuman with no right, no habeas corpus.

Alison has already expressed numerous times that the treatment is making her health deteriorate. But she is crazy, isn't she? So she is not supposed to say anything about what they are doing to her body, mind and soul.

She has the right to feel the deterioration like a kidney transplant three years ago,"after lithium toxicity caused renal failure. Psychiatrists refused to treat her kidney problems, and compounded the issue by prescribing Trilafon, a drug that has clear warnings about dangers to renal function. As a result, she has been having difficulty swallowing and has become physically weak."

I lost hope. I lost hope in campaigning, writing to these people, signing petitions... any of these actions mental health advocates usually do.

It doesn't work. Something has to be done but we are on the wrong track.
What we do is just an expression of our revolt and not a way to effectively take people from the hands of their warders.
Alison is alone. She needs a lawyer.

In the meantime:
"After years of planning and $140 million poured into constructing the new Western State Hospital* in Staunton, the managers introduced the state-of-the-art complex to the community Wednesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  (emphasis mine)

Politicians, city leaders and mental health care professionals spoke and celebrated the big day. They're proud of how far treatment has come over the past several decades, and say the new Western State Hospital is a symbol of that growth." (read here)

East Ghouta debunked by Mother Agnes: US lacks moral, dignity and ethics

Mother Agnes Mariam is a Carmelite nun who has been living and working in Syria for the past 19 years. Now, she is seeking to set the record straight on the lies and disinformation that is driving the NATO powers toward war against the people of Syria.

Mother Agnes and the International Support Team for Mussalaha in Syria (ISTEAMS) wrote a report about the Chemical Attacks in East Ghouta with detailed analysis of the videos.
But even a layperson can reach the same conclusions. US has crossed all lines and there is not a shred of dignity, integrity, ethics and moral left in those who are involved in all these heinous crimes to promote the Zionist agenda to destabilize middle east.

"Since the moment where some families of abducted children contacted us to inform us that they recognized their children among those who are presented in the videos as victims of the Chemical Attacks in East Ghouta, we decided to examine the videos thoroughly."

"Our first concern was the fate of the children we see in the footages. Those angels are always alone in the hands of adult males that seem to be elements of armed gangs. The children that trespassed remain without their families and unidentified all the way until the burial. Moreover, our study highlight without any doubt that their little bodies were manipulated and disposed with theatrical arrangements to figure in the screening."

"Thus we accuse the editors of the videos of artificial scenic treatment of what should have been honest information footage. The cynic manipulation of the little inanimate bodies that seem to be under anesthesia, endangered the life of the children and raises our minds the question of their safety and the real reason of their death."

"If the studied footages were edited and published to exhibit pieces of evidence to accuse Syrian State of perpetrating the Chemical Attacks on East Ghouta, our discoveries incriminate the editors and the actors of forging facts through a lethal manipulation of unidentified children. Thus we want to raise International Awareness toward the humanitarian case of this criminal use of children in the political propaganda of the East Ghouta's Chemical Attack."

"We present this work to distinguished Spiritual Leaders, Head of States. Head of Delegations, Senators, Members of Parliament, Humanitarian actors and to any person that has a heart for truth and justice and that seeks the due accountability for evil deeds." (read it here)

Brazilian psychoanalyst Joel Birman

Joel Birman is one of the greatest minds we have in Brazil. I attended some of his classes in 2010 and I'm planning to do it again. I don't know him but it is obvious that he is a great human being.
He is speaking in Portuguese. Ask your publisher to translate his work. :)
I'm not blogging lately because I'm studying a lot to understand the basic. It is just like doing college again. I have articles do write and books to read.
I hope that I can find my way and, who knows, help people. I did twenty years of psychoanalysis and now I'm studying the theories I could not study because I didn't want to put in jeopardy my own analysis.
I feared that if I started reading I would question everything.
It is a little painful sometimes reading some stuffs. But... I keep going.
