Cassie’s childhood was one of cruelty and sexual abuse; suffered for as long as she could remember. From the age of 15 she was having excruciating headaches as a result of this abuse and the treatment by her mother; she sought help for the pain from her family doctor. Taking this medication enabled her to endure the horrors she was going through and live an almost normal life. She could get these drugs on repeat prescription and did so without fear. The medical profession had begun using antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication freely but nobody told Cassie that these were what she was taking. It probably wouldn’t have made any difference as all she wanted was to cope with her traumatic life. Over the years, still taking this medication, she made many mistakes, bad relationships and tried many times to come off the tablets. Her GP told her that this would be easy but every time she tried, she suffered terrible withdrawal. Her story takes you through her life from that early age up to the time she suffered abuse from her third husband and realised that she was lurching from one mistake to another. The drugs she had taken for over 25 years had messed with her head and were ruling her life. They affected her sense of reason and judgement and left her unable to function as a person should. It describes the horrors of the dependency and the horrific symptoms of ultimate withdrawal. Her story tells of how Cassie’s life was a life full of a dependency that began in her teens and ended in her 40’s.
About the author.
Many readers of my autobiography, I DID TELL I DID, have asked about the medication I took for many years. Some have asked why the abuse continued into adult hood, why I didn’t fight back. I am hoping this part of my life story will explain the ‘why’s’ to those who asked and will show others, the dangers of some GP prescribed medication.
I also hope this book enlightens people who have no knowledge of this kind of drug therapy and comforts others who have suffered the way I did, comforted by understanding that they are not alone
