Mental Health & Home For Our Family

MILLIONS of people (approximately 1 in 4) have experienced mental illness & are not aware of some of the causes. I have compiled detailed information about some of the physical causes of Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and Other Mood, Brain and Physical Diseases as well as testing levels for specific deficiencies. I need your help sharing this priceless information! (FREE PDF's on my website) I began doing extensive research on mental illness, the brain, nutrients, neurotransmitters etc. because my daughter has suffered the horrific consequences of the current way we “treat” people with mental health challenges. I did this research to save my daughter’s life.

My daughter was involuntarily committed to the mental hospital, this most recent time it was for five months. FIVE MONTHS! It is incomprehensible how they could keep her locked up for such a long time as she was not a threat to herself or others. During that time she was not given the medical attention or treatment of her PHYSICAL conditions (Anemia – Iron & B12 deficiency, pyrrole disorder (B6 & Zinc deficiency), vitamin D deficiency, under methylation etc.) which have a direct impact on her BRAIN. She also missed family holidays including her only brother’s high school graduation. (See more details about her below)

Our family - my daughter, son and I - need a home for Love, Peace and Healing! Donations will help provide that as well as taking care of my daughter & her medical expenses.

My website offers the FREE information mentioned above as well as FREE JPEGs of my original paintings & poems, FREE grounding and replenishing meditation, & FREE inspirational quotes (#WWLD #WhatWouldLoveDo) with my original paintings as the background & MORE! (See SHARE The Gifts, Share LOVE) Also, many of my original paintings are 50% off.

Many years ago I put this on my website: “May every step on my personal journey bring greater awareness and healing within myself and every soul that I encounter.”
This statement is still true today and I feel it with ALL OF MY HEART.

Please help me share LOVE. #LovePEACE on Earth & #MentalHealth for ALL! #WWLD #WhatWouldLoveDo
Thank you.
Peace, Love & Blessings to YOU.

Some facts about my daughter:
·         Currently 22 years old, first psychotic episode at 19 years old in Oct. 2014.
·         Skipped 5th grade AND her senior year of high school graduating at 4.2 GPA.
·         Had never done any drugs, or used alcohol or cigarettes (No prescription drugs other than antibiotics once or twice in her childhood).
·         Healthy & active teenager (excelled in soccer), chose to be a vegetarian (even though her father & I were meat eaters) when she was a pre-teen. I (her mother) provided her with nutritious home cooked vegetarian meals after researching the nutrient requirements of a vegetarian diet. (I shared nutritional information with her father because she was with him almost three days a week, however he rarely cooked for her. After I lost our apartment for inability to pay rent, she began living full time with her father in 2012).
·         Taught herself Hindi before backpacking for 3 months in India with a gap year travel group.
·         Went to college taking Arabic, Physics etc.
·         After her psychotic episode, because she was a legal adult – over 18 (still living with her father) she was involuntarily committed, and then put on an outpatient commitment which involved following the orders of the Health and Welfare department.
·         She had NEVER experienced depression or suicidal thoughts until after she was drugged with anti-psychotics. During her outpatient commitment she repeatedly requested (begged) for her psychiatric medication dose to be lowered, (verbally and in writing) after telling the person that was in charge of her drugs that she was depressed and suicidal. She was also experiencing severe physical side effects. Her requests were repeatedly denied and she was told that if she didn’t receive the injections she would be locked up again at the state hospital. We had been told by the Health and Welfare department that she could not seek any psychiatrist or other practitioner of her choosing and she was committed to following only their orders. I did not have money for a lawyer but I still met with an attorney to inquire about her legal rights. I also took her (my daughter) to a different psychiatrist to seek his help in her treatment, however the Health and Welfare department wouldn’t release her medical information or allow him to treat her, even after her suicide attempt.
·         Over the course of her “treatment” (and drugged against her will) she has been prescribed over 19 different drugs (or more) and has had over 40 extreme side effects, some of which include Hypotension, Tachycardia, Rapid and Extreme Weight Gain, Akathisia (movement disorder), Severe Allergic Reactions Including Skin Rashes & Difficulty Breathing (face/throat swelling), Anemia, Insomnia, Nausea & Vomiting, Fainting, Uncontrollable Eye Movement, Memory Loss, Severe Depression, Attempted Suicide and the list goes on.

If it was YOU or your son/daughter/brother/sister/mother/father wouldn't you do everything you could to save their life? I would. This information is for you and your family, friends, coworkers, neighbors etc. Please share it. Thank you!

My daughter is currently still in the mental hospital. She spent nearly all of the holidays of 2017 locked up. Valentine's day 2017, Her brother's birthday, Mother's day, My birthday, Father's day, Her brother's high school graduation, Fourth of July. After being "incarcerated" again this December she also spent Christmas and her Birthday in the state mental hospital. Today, Valentine's day has come again. My daughter is suffering unnecessarily. As with the former hospital administration as soon as I voice my daughter's Physical and Mental REQUIREMENTS the "release of information" is revoked. In other words, they do or don't do as they see fit, much to my daughter's demise and I don't get to receive any information about her care. In order for me to get guardianship of my daughter so that I can assure that her basic needs are met and healing can take place, I need a home. I need a home for her and my son so that he NEVER goes through mental illness or the horrific
"treatment" that my daughter has. If Love is a force in your life, I ask you to listen now to your heart. You don't need all the details (although I can give you horrific details if you need clarity) you just need to believe that every fiber of my being is here to help and serve those in need. My favorite and beloved choices to start with are my own kids. May Love Light the way and Truth be Always Present within me and everyone that cares. Thank you. #LovePEACE on Earth & #MentalHealth for ALL! #WWLD #WhatWouldLoveDo www.melissajoyfully.com

My heart is breaking today. My daughter hasn't been taking the nutrients her body & brain NEED for her illness & she was experiencing some psychosis today. Even though her father doesn't allow me in the house to visit my kids - he text me today letting me know she wasn't doing well. He allowed me in to try and help her but she wouldn't allow it. Her case manager showed up after I had left and then the "ACT" team ("Health & Welfare") with the police & evidently they took her away in handcuffs (again). I ask you to please pray for me & my amazing kids. Our family needs your prayers & we need a Home together for healing to be possible.
I was escorted out of the motel yesterday by the police (very kind and compassionate officers) for inability to pay, I'm now back at my friends house, thankful I'm not sleeping out of my car or at the homeless shelter again. What would you do to save a life? Share this information & please donate today. Thank you. www.melissajoyfully.com

My friend gave me enough money to pay for my storage unit and move out into the motel the last two nights. Right now I only have enough $ for two more nights (tonight 12/3 & tomorrow) unless I can work out some sort of arrangement with the management. Please share this information with everyone you know! It can be an answer to prayer for many lives and a Christmas Blessing! Also - I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have a home for the holidays with my kids!!! We have all been through so much and I've worked so VERY hard compiling this vital information to share with you. Thank you for taking a moment to spread Love! #LovePEACE on Earth & #MentalHealthforALL! #WWLD #WhatWouldLoveDo

The information I provide for FREE can SAVE LIVES! ♥ Please help me spread the word ♥ ANY AMOUNT you Donate is a TREMENDOUS BLESSING which will help me continue doing the work that I am here on earth to do. #LovePEACE on Earth & #MentalHealth for ALL! #WWLD #WhatWouldLoveDo. www.lovepeaceonearth.com & www.MelissaJoyfully.com
