Maryanne Godboldo is back in court!

Judge postpones decision on Godboldo criminal case after Court of Appeals reversal

“(WXYZ) – The Detroit mother who refused to hand her daughter over to child protective services workers made was back in court Friday.

It’s case that made headlines around the world.

When Maryanne Godboldo refused to hand her daughter over to Child Protective Services in March of 2011, she never expected a police standoff complete with tanks and the swat team.

Godboldo was charged with 8 felonies, allegedly for firing a gun into her ceiling when police broke down her door.

“We can’t lose sight of the fact that this was a mother who was protecting her daughter from a very dangerous and deadly drug being forced upon her by CPS,” said Allison Folmar, one of Godboldo’s attorneys.”

Obamacare Chaos: Our ticket to FREEDOM!

Fascism 5A couple of years ago, in fact it was March 21st, 2010, the Health Care Bill passed the House of Representatives, I had Amy on my radio show and we talked about what is was going to mean for Moms.  I was feeling completely dejected that day.  At the last minute The Mothers Act had been slipped into the bill and the feeling of doom that passed over my heart is not something I would like to feel again.

Since that time, during all of the ups and downs of the various fights to get Obamacare defeated, especially on the day the Supreme Court made the final decision to allow it to exist as a Tax on the American People, I have felt this increasing sense of helplessness.

On the day that Ted Cruz made his epic speech calling for it to be defunded on the Senate Floor, I felt some last minute hope that somehow the Bill would be defeated simply by not being funded.  But the next day…well, darkness filled my heart.  Medical Fascism was now a reality in America.

One of the things that those of you who do not follow the political scene as closely as we do need to know is that many activists were screaming at the top of our lungs about what this bill was going to do to the American Family.

road to ObamaCareAs the past few years have clicked by, Amy had major changes in her life and we relocated to Utah and neither of us has had much time or energy to do much more than take care of our families and try not to get too sad about what is going on in the wonderful world of American Medical Fascism.

So, the day after Ted Cruz made his speech about defunding Obamacare was about the low point for me. I remember feeling so lost and really concerned about my children and grandchildren’s future.

But since the first week of October I have had an increasing sense of optimism restored to my heart.  As the web site roll out has been so devastatingly bad, I have carefully followed the story with increasing joy.  The millions of families who have lost health care, the presidents backpedaling on rules of engagement, the call for the health insurance industry to be bailed out, and the obvious mess that is roiling through our society are proof to me that our freedom and autonomy as parents will be found in the chaos.

FascismHow will freedom be found in the chaos?

Well, if the Medical Care System is so messy, dysfunctional, and chaotic that no one knows who is paying for what and millions are looking for care, and millions more are not able to find care because the doctors are unwilling to accept more patients, to me that is the answer for the average family who simply just want to live.  To birth, to feed, to educate, to heal, and to grow as a family without a slew of highly paid busybodies messing with them at every juncture.

I also believe that as parents realize the overpriced mess that is awaiting them at the hospital when they go to birth the baby and the dysfunctional nothingness of Common Core awaiting them at the local public schools, we are going to see a vast migration of families moving to home birth and home school.

I am grateful for the choices made regarding taking on the task to learn new and difficult skills.  Give the radio show a listen.  Amy and I were talking about these issues four years ago and have some serious solutions for those parents who find themselves overwhelmed by the chaos.

I wish I was… blogging

The past couple of years have been so busy. Lots of things have happened in my life but this morning, while lying in bed with my baby before waking to cook breakfast and get my older boys to school, I received a comment that seemed like it was out of the blue if only because I have been too busy for blogging lately. This was the comment.

If you are just now catching up and wondering what or who this refers to, watch this video about baby Indiana Delahunty.

Things like this comment just really get to me. I am so fortunate for my healthy children, and things could have turned into a real tragedy in my life if I had continued down the path of psychiatry 9 years ago. It’s hard to believe it’s been 9 years. But even harder is knowing that there are children out there suffering for the same reasons that I started on that path in the first place. Which is to say, basically no reason whatsoever. I was drugged by my OB/GYN for NO reason whatsoever. In summary, that’s all it was. There was nothing requiring intervention. When your kid runs out in front of a car and almost gets hit, it’s normal to freak out. If your baby nearly dies at two days old, it’s normal to freak out. Even a panic attack would be ok. People do “get over” these things. People don’t need drugs to do it.

If psychotropic drugs were as safe as the candy they seem to be treated like, then go ahead, take your psychiatric drugs. But when there are umpteen million lawsuits for dead babies, suicides, murders, and even criminal defense attorneys employing the “Zoloft defense” – do you really think it’s worth it? Go get some counseling, get some “alternative” healing, anything that isn’t the chemical equivalent of taking LSD, PCP, meth or cocaine.

So what would you never get over? I guarantee you, if your baby dies in utero, you will never get over it. If you have to watch your newborn baby die in the ICU from a preventable side effect of Effexor that you didn’t need to take, you will never get over it. If your child hangs herself in the school bathroom, you will NEVER get over it.

During the past two years I’ve felt as though I have run out of things to say about psychiatric drugs. But messages like this one make it clear to me that I must keep going.

When I reread Indi’s story this morning, and the comments on the blog, I couldn’t help but think to myself that this is so important. Just a few comments up from the one that kept me awake at 5 am, is a post from a mother who lost her baby in the 90s while pregnant on Effexor.

And another writes of a miscarriage at 11 weeks.

If you’re already an activist, please don’t stop. If you’re just a parent reading this blog wondering what is going on, please start doing your research. Spare your family the sorrow that too many others know.

There are many days when I see what my friends are doing and I wonder, why can’t I be doing that? I’d much rather be on a ski trip or going to that concert, or taking a vacation, than doing what I am doing. But waking up at 4:45 am to a message like that makes me think, I’d rather be blogging.

Psychology Today: Retract the article “Benzo Hysteria”

Petition by

Nancy Rubenstein Del Giudice

Benzodiazapine withdrawal has been documented to be forty times harder to withdraw from than heroin, and many people are  disabled for years from protracted withdrawal syndromes. In Britain this is recognized as a public health epidemic. This article suggests that these drugs are safe and non-addictive.
