    Dear Mrs Cato. I recently heard your story and I have blogged about it in Dutch. I hope many people will read your book “Dear Luise” and will do all they can to stop involuntary commitment and forced treatment. I also hope that in future, people will listen to the stories of ‘patients’ and their loved ones. People’s individual reactions to treatment and their preferences should be respected. I’m very sorry for what you had to go through, with such a terrible outcome after all many years. All the best,

      Thank you so much Kayakangst. I am very grateful for your kind words. I agree it is all about understanding peoples individual reactions to treatment. Why can’t the psychiatrists see this. Why do they think that everybody with a diagnoses should have exactly the same amount/doses of this to many very dangerous drugs. It is very strange. In all medical specialities forced treatment is prohibited. I mean that a person with cancer can say no to Chemotherapy. A person with diabetes can say no to insulin. But a person with schizophrenia or bipolar cannot say no to the mind altering and in some cases fatal psychotropics though the persons so-called diagnoses is not even proved and may be wrong. There is so many contradictions in psychiatric treatment that when you start thinking about it, you can get scared.
