Forum Post: An open letter to those discussing the death of Robin Williams publicly.

Posted 2 months ago on Aug. 18, 2014, 4:45 a.m. EST by StillModestCapitalist (409)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

This is an exact transcript of an email that I recently sent to a well known public figure. One of the very few public figures that I have any respect for. It may as well be read by everyone. Hopefully, it will do some good.

"Bob, I have another true story for you. If you take it seriously and keep it in mind when you talk about Robin Williams, you may save lives.

I already told you about my friend who suffered a minor injury, took prescription drugs for the pain and ended up on a half dozen daily meds within a year in order to treat the side-effects. I told you about his transformation from a solid athlete to a shell of his former self within that year. I told you about his seizures including the one that left him totally helpless leaving me no choice but to drag him up a hill and to my car. I told you about his miraculous recovery and return to strength and perfect health after he finally gave up ALL MEDS. He is now a US army soldier.

I told you about my step-dads miraculous recovery from advanced (near death) Alzheimer's after I finally convinced my mother to get him out of XXXXXXXX XXXXX nursing home where they had him on 13 individual prescription drugs daily. I told you about his return to health and competence after my mom and I cut his daily meds down to 3. Since then, we have cut his meds even further. Now, at 81, he is a new man on two prescription drugs plus baby aspirin. For the first time in over a decade, his mind and body are both stable. He functions like a healthy 65 year old.

I already told you about my transformation from sickly and weak to strong and resilient after giving up all meds including aspirin at the age of 18. I told you about my amazing health, good fitness level, and ability to do whatever I want in any weather weather without getting sick well into my 40s. It remains true to this day.

I told you about the time my mother went into the emergency room for severe abdominal pain. She spent the night where she was subjected to a barrage of medical tests. Their diagnosis was stomach flu or something like that as I recall. They were dead wrong. The true cause of her pain was revealed a day or so later. She had been taking my step-dads pain pills (which he no longer takes). The interaction with her own prescription med was known to cause extreme abdominal pain. She stopped taking the pain meds and made a full recovery within 36 hours.

Now I have another true story for you. Earlier this year, my mother who is normally chipper like a bird, full of life and fully devoted to her loved ones started hating on my step-dad, treating me like a stranger and complaining about her very existence. She started saying things like "Lord, give me strength" and "Take me now" in response to things like misplaced car keys and laundry that wasn't folded properly. She stated her hatred of my step-dad outright and threatened to send him back to a nursing home. She had virtually no tolerance of any aspect of her life. It was crystal clear from her attitude and demeanor that she wanted to die. This went on for several days. My step-dad was beside himself. There was nothing he could say or do. I had to search my mother's room because she was hiding her meds from me (I visit often). Well, she didn't hide them well enough. I found them. Sure enough, the problem was listed right there as a common side effect, 'thoughts of suicide'. I do not recall the name of that particular med. It was one of the really long ones with 4 or 5 syllables. I did just do a quick Internet search and found over 20 prescription drugs within the first ten pages of results known to cause 'thoughts of suicide'. I still can't say for sure what particular med my mother was taking earlier this year. The name is too difficult to remember but the result of her decision to stop taking that med was about as predictable as predictable gets. No more hating on my step-dad. No more indifference toward me. No more wanting to die. No more anything. She is right back to normal. Like Doris Day in one of her corny movies that my mother loves.

I don't know what sort of marital problems Robin Williams had. I don't know what sort of addiction problems he had. I don't know what sort of health problems he had. I wasn't there and I don't know why he took his life. But I do know this: The mainstream media won't acknowledge the possibility that Robin Williams took his life in full or part, because a prescription drug took away his remaining desire to live. They have commercial sponsors, parent companies, and corporate partners to look out for. For that reason, they will not acknowledge the possibility.

Please acknowledge it for them. You don't have to play it up. Just acknowledge the possibility so that a few people out there may do the research that they should have been doing all along. You may end up saving a few lives.

If you doubt what I say about those 'thoughts of suicide', then look it up. Again, the first 10 pages of search results produced over 20 prescription drugs known to cause them. "side effects" "thoughts of suicide"."

If any of you are taking any meds at all, then you should be doing research on the potential side-effects. They often do more harm than good.

https://occupywallst.org/forum/my-step-dad-was-misdiagnosed-with-advanced-alzheim/

By the way, we cut his meds even further. Now he takes baby aspirin daily and the other two a few times each week. His strength, cardio, short term memory, and overall competence have all improved. He never had Alzheimer's to begin with. It was the Gxx dxxx side-effects all along.

My step-dad is just one of many victims of our screwed up health care industry. If any of you plan to sue any doctor or hospital for misdiagnosis, make sure you file within the statute. Start documenting everything immediately.

If your step dad has atrial fibrillation, be careful about taking him off of blood thinning medication and medication that prevents a rapidly beating heart. You should own a pulse oximeter that measures oxygen in the blood and heart rate, along with a blood pressure reading device for monitoring purposes.

[-] 1 points by StillModestCapitalist (409) 2 months ago

My step-dad did have atrial fibrillation. SEVERE atrial fibrillation. I'll give you one guess what caused it. I'll give you a clue as well.

He doesn't have atrial fibrillation anymore.

LOS ANGELES – Robin Williams participated in United Service Organization (USO) tours for more than a decade, entertaining troops in war zones from Afghanistan to Iraq to Kuwait. He made many trips to 13 different countries and performing stand-up routines for almost 90,000 troops. So the news of his death -- believed to be a suicide -- sent shock waves through the U.S. armed forces.

http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2014/08/12/military-community-pays-tribute-to-true-friend-robin-williams/

But while older veterans saw a slight decrease in suicides, male veterans under 30 saw a 44 percent increase in the rate of suicides. That’s roughly two young veterans a day who take their own life, most just a few years after leaving the service.

Suicide rate spikes among young veterans

"thoughts of suicide", when they say it quickly on TV commercials I never really absorbed what they were saying. I totally agree that less meds are better than many.

However, in the area of blood thinning medication to prevent strokes, and beta blockers that slow down the heart from beating too rapidly, I would say be cautious about not using those meds.

[-] 1 points by StillModestCapitalist (409) 2 months ago

Well, that's what they say about blood thinners, for a-fib related strokes anyway. However, the side-effects in my step-dad's case were profound. They made him feel cold all the time, screwed up his short term memory, caused confusion, excessive bleeding, and drove him to the emergency room several times for cardiovascular issues. Of course, the a-fib was a side-effect to begin with. One of many. He still takes a beta blocker three or four times each week but just a fraction of the prescribed dose. Again, the side-effects are an issue.

When limbs move, they require more blood flow. Otherwise, they can't move for long. When limbs don't move often enough, a number of actual health problems develop. This is true for every man and woman alive regardless of age. For this reason, my step-dad takes nothing at all except baby aspirin the evening before and the day of any plans we have.

Overall, he takes maybe 10% of what his doctors recommend. One of which is a world renowned heart specialist. November will make two full years that his doctors, all of them, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM, have been proven DEAD WRONG.

My step-dad is 81 and going strong. No more symptoms of Alzheimer's, schizophrenia, bipolar, atrial fibrillation, or angina. At 81, he takes two prescription drugs (out of 13 prescribed) at just a fraction of the recommended dose three or four times each week plus baby aspirin daily.

It is true that people should be cautious when playing doctor. However, it is also true that people should be cautious when taking the word of a real doctor.

The widespread corruption and incompetence I refer to is real.

[-] 1 points by DebtNEUTRALITYpetition (638) 1 month ago

One of my parents that takes blood thinners has the following symptoms, feel cold all the time, screwed up short term memory, caused confusion.

However, we had a friend who may not have taken blood thinners when prescribed who spent several years in a nursing home from a stroke that left half of their body paralyzed, and they could no longer speak even though they still could think fine.

These types of extremely irresponsible postings should not be allowed on Occupy forums. Only professional doctors with visits with a patient should come up with diagnostics and decide what to do.

It's easy to find cases where stopping meds was a good thing. I could easily find cases where stopping meds would kill you, or make you a lot worse. Like my friend who is schizophrenic. If he does not take his pills, he can become quite insane thank you very much.

Very irresponsible post.

If you are taking meds you should obviously know what the side effects are. You should talk about those with your doctor, you shouldn't just decide to stop taking meds because some guy on the net says so.

[-] 1 points by StillModestCapitalist (409) 2 months ago

Tell you what sport. Read the entry I posted regarding my step-dad. Then do some research on the ever growing wave of financially motivated corruption now rampant in the US healthcare industry. Learn about the educational/recreational junkets sponsored by drug companies. Learn about the paid gigs and perks for doctors who play ball. Learn about the growing trends of falsified research, excessive testing, and billing fraud. Then tell me again how we should 'trust our doctors'.

Finally, read this entry again, pay attention this time, and stop putting words in my mouth and implications at my finger tips. I never implied that no man or woman has ever had any legitimate need or use for a pharmaceutical. My purpose here is to wake people up, expose the widespread abuse, the PROFOUND consequences, and the utter failure of our healthcare industry to get it's act together.

You are not a doctor, so you should not tell people to stop taking pills. This is very dangerous. It is irresponsible.

You should tell people to talk about their pill intake with their doctor so they understand potential ill side effects. That's it. Don't tell them to stop taking pills.

Your personal anecdotes are worthless. You can find personal anecdotes of people dying when they stop taking pills. All your anecdotes mean nothing.

What matters is science and proper diagnosis by a trained doctor who interacts in real life with a patient.

Enough of these badly written help things by non doctors on the web. This internet cheap medicine advice.

[-] 1 points by flip (7002) 2 months ago

if you think modern medicine is based on science you have not been educated properly. do a bit of reading and let me know what you find out. how many die from prescription meds each year. how many chronic conditions are "cured" by the big pharma industry. and lastly how many doctors have a clue about HEALTH! just take a look at our elderly population - yes they are alive but are they really living? for sure if you are hit buy a car or cut off your hand modern medicine can do amazing things but if you have cancer, diabetes, arthritis, heart disease or any of the "auto immune" diseases they do not have a clue - one is better off going on an ows site for a cure! and that's the truth!

[-] -1 points by DiegoAlbanese (-45) from Miami, FL 2 months ago

You sound like a conspiracy theory nutcase.

Modern medicine is based on science. It's based on very deep science actually. You can read about it yourself in the various peer reviewed scientific medical journals.

If you don't believe modern medicine is a science, then don't make use of it. Fine. But please, don't go around the net to diagnose strangers and tell them they shouldn't take their pills when you have no idea of their medical situation. That is irresponsible and dangerous.

The irony is that you will make use of modern medicine. You will go get checked when you think you have a cancer, you will ask the help of the doctors, etc....

[-] 1 points by flip (7002) 2 months ago

uh oh i smell a trashy man. no it is not based on science - first of all i have not diagnosed anyone. secondly you do not know me so don't assume. it makes you seem stupid. respond to me when you have done some research

[-] -1 points by DiegoAlbanese (-45) from Miami, FL 2 months ago

My only assumption is that you are not very bright. I make that assumption based on what you post and how you reply to comments. I would say you have no university education. Read very little, apart from conspiracy theory websites, and worked some type of repairman or plumber job. You are retired now.

I'm sorry, but modern medicine is based on science. That is not debatable. You can read peer reviewed scientific journals for yourself.

Being ignorant is not a positive thing. Please don't remain ignorant.

[-] 1 points by flip (7002) 2 months ago

weaker and weaker. would you like to address the diseases of the modern world? cancer, arthritis, diabetes etc - how has your modern medical system done curing them - for sure i can give you a better chance at health than the docs

[-] 0 points by DiegoAlbanese (-45) from Miami, FL 2 months ago

People live longer than ever before because of the science behind modern medicine. In 1900, the life expectancy was about 30 years. Now it is close to becoming 80.

You're badly educated. I'm wasting my time discussing issues with you. I'd have to give you a list of hundreds of books to read and ask you to come back after you read them. Then we could discuss on equal bounds.

Look, if you want to avoid modern medicine that is fine. Do whatever you want. But, you shouldn't be irresponsible and play cheap Doogie Howser web MD. Don't go around telling people to stop taking their pills when you have no idea who they are, what sickness they have, and what pills they take.

[-] 1 points by StillModestCapitalist (409) 2 months ago

The life expectancy in 1900 was not about 30. It was more like high 40's. People live much longer now than in 1900 because of improvements in shelter, sanitation, fresh water availability, food storage, workplace safety, transportation and basic medicine. However, 'basic' medicine, is fast becoming the exception to the rule. These days, if you scratch your finger, you end up with a prescription for antibiotics and the potential for a weakened immune system. Not to mention other side-effects which may put you on a life-long path of drug and doctor dependency. That growing trend will soon reduce average life expectancy if it hasn't already.

The most healthy people in the world with the highest life expectancies, in general, live simple, clean, and drug free or damn near drug free. That's a fact. You're welcome to check for yourself.

So much for the 'modern medicine' angle.

now this is why you should never give a straight answer when you are a troll - you are in a position of trying to show that doctors save about 800 million people in this country every year - that would be a good trick, you said this -" the answer is that doctors save 1,000,000 lives for every person that dies under their care". - and this it the reality - Out of the 783,936 annual deaths from conventional medicine mistakes, approximately 106,000 of those are the result of prescription drug use [1]. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, two-hundred and ninety people in the United States are killed by prescription drugs every day [4]. -now the footnotes for those who want to check them out - 1.

This question is irrelevant. You are using it to mount some kind of lame straw man logical fallacy. The answer is that doctors save 1,000,000 lives for every person that dies under their care.

Dude, what is it with these lame logical fallacies. Come on. We aren't high school dropouts here. Please have some decency to remain in the realm of an intellectual discussion. Your idea to dismiss prescription medications because some people died from them is so lame and such an obvious logical fallacy that I won't even bother to respond. This is not a site for kindergarten students. My god.

You're still denying the legitimate point sport. My friend was transformed into a shell because of the corruption I refer to. He recovered on my advice. Not that of his doctor. My step-dad was almost killed because of the corruption I refer to. He is alive and well because of me. Not his doctors. I am the most healthy person I have ever known, in large part, because I stopped taking meds, and the word of my doctor at the age of 18.

Worthless my ass.

Science is just fine until the scientist sells out. Again, do your research. The corruption I refer to is real.

What you pander here is unscientific garbage and seriously dangerous. You use personal unverifiable unscientific anecdotes to tell people online what you think they should do in terms of their pill(s) intake habits. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Tell people to talk with their doctors, fine.

But please, stop playing amateur web MD.

[-] 1 points by StillModestCapitalist (409) 2 months ago

No. It's seriously dangerous to walk into a doctor's office without knowledge of the widespread corruption and incompetence now rampant in our healthcare industry.

I talked to my doctor when I was 18. He advised me NOT to stop taking my meds. My friend talked to his doctor when he was 19. His doctor had him on several meds at the time, ignored the potential side-effects (seizures) and referred him to a neurologist for more testing. My step-dad talked to his doctors many times. They had him on Viagra at the age of 72 or 73 despite his celibate lifestyle and nitrates for chest pain. They had him on 13 separate prescription drugs daily at the age of 79, ignored the potential side-effects, and misdiagnosed him with advanced (near death) Alzheimer's to explain his vegetative state. My mom talked to her doctors when she went into the emergency room for severe abdominal pain. They kept her overnight and subjected her to a barrage of medical tests only to misdiagnose her with stomach Flu. She talked with her doctors before taking the meds that made her feel angry and took away her very will to live.

ALL OF THOSE DOCTORS WERE DEAD WRONG.

So what makes my half dozen testimonials 'unscientific garbage' but not your one testimonial? Oh that's right. The potential for lost industry profits.

No. What the forum doesn't need is industry lapdogs like you who don't have the courage necessary to admit that our precious healthcare industry really is riddled with incompetence, greed, corruption, and outright fraud.

If and when you grow a spine, do the research.

You certainly did give medical advice. You told strangers they should stop taking their pills based on unverifiable and lame personal anecdotes. It's like you want to bring us back 200 years when any old cook could go around giving medical advice and operations were done with whisky by a dentist or a plumber.

In addition to the course in psychology, I recommend a course in English. Whenever you feel confident, you're welcome to quote me telling strangers to "stop taking their pills". Again sport, I did no such thing. I told them to research the potential side-effects. Say that reminds me.
