Here’s the scoop:
This is essential to the cause for anyone who has ever been abused in “care.” This is why: Adam Lanza was called a “monster,” he was seen as not even human for what he did at Sandy Hook. Is this even possible? No, he was a kid. He had been abused by a therapist. This is a horrific type of abuse, so horrible that people simple do not want to believe it is even POSSIBLE! Yet this is what happened to him and it got him so, so pissed and so confused that he shot a bunch of children.
I am not justifying what Adam did. I only stating that someone did something awful to him that then drove him off the edge. We must stop this abuse!
After I heard about Sandy Hook, I had one thought in mind: That poor kid. Someone hurt him bad. I heard he was a patient. Then, I knew. You bet I did. I refused to judge no matter how many times I heard what a horrible monster he was. I refused to call him that. I could only cry, thinking of the terrible harm that had been done to him.
I thought of my own rage after I had been harmed. I am grateful that I am not a violent person today. But all that could have happened to me because I was abused by a therapist, too. When you are badly abused in therapy or in a hospital, you end up in an absolute rage. Under some circumstances, you can end up violent. No, you’re not a monster, you simply cannot stop it.
What must be stopped is therapy abuse. We CAN stop therapy abuse. We can stop by speaking out against therapists who abuse.
Abuse WILL beget abuse unless the cycle is stopped. This makes perfect sense. Abusers know they can get away with abusing a person who has already been abused in the past, since a person who was harmed before is less likely to be believed. They do it because they know they can get away with it. Simple logic.
Have you been abused by a therapist? Speak out now! Let’s join forces and stop abusive therapists before they do harm such as what happened to Adam, who was not a monster, but a mere child.
On behalf of the dead, on behalf of the victims, on behalf of those now imprisoned or under court-ordered gag orders, on behalf of those now under threats who cannot speak out, we must do this. Please, summon up the strength to speak out now, for the sake of those who might otherwise make the fatal choice to submit to the slavery of abusive therapy.
