Medicated To Death … The Truth Of Medicated Mass Murder

i cried so hard while watching this video

Nearly Every Mass Shooting In The Last 20 Years Shares One Thing In Common, And It Isn’t Weapons

” Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.

  The overwhelming evidence suggests the single largest common factor in all of these incidents is that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

…On to the list of mass shooters and the stark link to psychotropic drugs.

Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Columbine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold’s medical records have never been made available to the…

The best day of my life was the day i married my husband. When i first decided to do this post i thought oh well the best day of my life would have to be the day my children were born, but i changed my mind. Because even though those days were wonderful and very special to me, the day we got married is the day my life was changed forever. 3 days before my husband and i got married i relapsed, and when he came home i was so drunk that i could barely walk, (its a miracle he married me). So the day we got married i swore to myself, and to God, that i would never touch a drink again, and i havent. Ever since that day i have devoted all of my time and energy to my family and God. That day is when i feel like our real life began, its when we both let all the bad stuff go, and said its time to make it right, it was also the beginning of me finding out who i really am. Almost everything before that seems like a dream. Sure there were periods of being sober, like when i was pregnant, but i was always waiting anxiously for the day i could drink again. Now the thought of drinking makes me disgusted with myself. All of these are reasons that our wedding day was the best day of my life, but the best part is that i married a wonderful man, who i love more and more with each day that passes. This is my best day, and my challenge for you is to tell me your best day ever. You can send me the link to it or leave something about it in the comments, and I will reblog it. Feel free to include pictures and anything else you would like, but try to keep it under 1,000 words and keep it clean, if you have a potty mouth I will not be able to reblog it.


Daddy’s Disease (Book Review)

4a23378c7e88747ed4497849e676f0f4Hey everyone,
This morning i read a book, a book that i feel has the ability to help mend a childs broken heart, and give clarity where there was confusion. The book i am talking about is called, Daddy’s Disease, written by Carolyn Hannan Bell. It is a children’s book, that helps children who have an alcoholic parent understand what alcoholism is and how it works. Let me just say the author is genius in how she knows an alcoholics mind, and the simplicity she uses to explain alcoholism so that a child really understands. This book is not one that would bring most people to tears, but it did with me, because being a recovering alcoholic myself, i know that my children experienced some of these same feelings. Even though i have explained addiction to my children, i dont think they could truly grasp what i was saying, so i am going to be reading this book to them, just as soon as i have it in my hands. Now it is a childrens book but honestly i know many adults who could possibly benifit from reading it as well. So even if you dont have children, you should check it out.
When someone has a spouse who is an alcoholic, it is more often than not very hard to overcome their own emotional stress, and it can be hard to find the right words to explain to their children, exactly what is going on in a way that they understand it. This book is the perfect way to ensure that children know what is happening, and that most importantly they know that it is in know way their fault. I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone who has an alcoholic in the there family, or to anyone who just has a hard time really understanding how alcoholism works. I would like to thank Mrs. Carolyn Hannan Bell for writing such a wonderful book in efforts to help children experience less pain, due to having an alcoholic parent. For more information or to order a copy of her book go to http://www.alcoholismhurtskids.com Daddy’s Disease is also available as Mommy’s Disease.

Well today was our zombie party and it went really good, We ate some zombie inspired food, dressed up, and watched the walking dead, all of the kids had a great time. I loved watching my 10 year old d.j. today. He was having so much fun and all of his friends just kept bragging about how cool everything was, you could see the pride on his face, that was definitely my favorite part. Of course all the zombie stuff was pretty friggen awesome to. Lol. Here are some picks of the food, plus all the kids, and me. Well not all the kids, Dominik (my 4 year old) was tied to his xbox, and my youngest donnie is only 2, so he is a little to young, for now.

Happy Mothers Day

147 (3)Hey everybody,
first just let me say happy mother’s day to all of my wonderful friends and followers on wordpress, and if you are not a mom than happy sunday, Lol. I wanted to write a post for someone very special to me. Most of you have read some of my previous posts about my biological mother and how i feel about her. What you dont know is that, my mother in law just happens to be one of the best mom’s in the world. She has treated me more like a daughter in the 13 years she has known me, than my own mother ever has. She has been there for me ever since the day i met her, whether it was to give me a hug and tell me that she loves me, or to say i love you, but you need to get your act together, because what your doing is wrong. Im sure there have been times when she wanted to strangle me,(thankfully she did not) but even when she was incredibly angry with me for something, i always knew it came from a place of love and motherly concern, i knew from the beginning she was the exact opposite of my mother. These wonderful people that you see in the picture are my mother and father in law. Donnie and Patricia. I have so much respect for both of them, they are amazing people who have helped me and inspired me, more than they will ever know, i love you both so much,and I hope you had a wonderful mothers day today, if anyone deserves it, it is you.
Love your daughter
Diana
p.s. Thank you for being the mother that i needed, and that you didnt have to be.

Forgivness

images (32)download (12)Hey everyone, i just joined Desmond Tutu’s global forgiveness challenge. I have never had a problem forgiving others, that actually comes quite easily for me. But what doesnt come easily or at all it seems is forgiving myself, i have made a lot of bad choices in my life, and caused everyone i love a lot of pain, mainly because of drugs and alcohol, but i made them none the less. I thought that with time i would be able to move on and begin to feel like a decent human being, but it hasnt happened yet. It is hard for me to even have a normal argument with my husband because somewhere in the middle of it, i start telling my self that after everything i put him through i have no right to argue about anything. ( He doesnt say that, i just think it about myself.) And I have so many wonderful followers who are always telling me how i am a great woman, and how strong i am. which is so very appreciated, but i always feel like they are talking about someone else, and like i dont really deserve what they are saying. I know that my husband, children, and everyone else who matters, has forgiven me but how do i forgive myself? I hope that the next 30 days of going through this challenge will bring me a little bit closer to the forgiveness i am seeking. Here is the link to the forgiveness challenge www.forgivenesschallenge.com in case anyone else needs some help with forgiving.
