- [ ] It is frustrating to hear how everybody comes together for the evacuees. I understand that that situation is an emergency. They need a lot of support. I have also opened my doors to some and doing what I can to help. But the thing is that I have been struggling for months physically, mentally and financially and nobody could care less. I can't even afford to live anymore. It's too costly. I feel I don't belong anywhere and that I don't have a place here anymore. Any help I did have was taken away. It feels like everyone has abandoned me. I don't have any support anymore and no one to talk to. I was experiencing a mental breakdown which wasn't taken into account. Nothing was taken into account.

With what Dr. Litwinson did to me and is still doing to me, my physical health as well as my mental health is in great danger. Also with what she has done, it has brought up some painful memories of when I was separated from my daughters. And all of those feelings that I have experienced during that painful time has resurfaced again. Dr. Litwinson gets you in a spot to trust her and then when you least expect it she pulls the rug from underneath you leaving you feeling very vulnerable. I'm even scared of leaving my home now. She left me with no support. She's probably satisfied that she did this to me. My life is completely over. She still wants to hurt me by dictating my life. And as a result I will have to die because I can't cope with any of this. I have no one to talk to. I feel alone in this dreadful world. The count down is on. I only contacted the college because I felt alone, lost, scared, abandoned, vulnerable and scared for the future and also because I felt hurt, real hurt and the assumptions that were made against me. I am scared of violence. There were factors that played a big part in my unusual behaviour. The medication was one factor. Going thru menopause was another factor. The last factor was that I was also experiencing a Mental Breakdown. I didn't stand a chance. Dr. Litwinson is or is supposed to be a psychiatrist. She should have changed my medication when I asked. Also I was having a Mental Breakdown. Isn't she a mental health professional? She should have realized what was happening. I should have been hospitalized, NOT abandoned after 12 years. I wasn't a bad person. I thought as a Canadian I had a right for good health care and to get better. Other people get treated better than me. Even immigrants get treated better.

Dr. Litwinson has let me down. It was very unprofessional on how she handled things. And after 12 years of weekly appointments you would think that she would know a person. Well apparently she doesn't know me at all. For her to even think I could cause bodily harm to anyone. Someone has made it clear to me today that Dr. Litwinson did more harm to me starting with the termination and her continued efforts to destroy me. Laurie Litwinson should not have the title Dr. She had directed anger at me twice and when I show any anger she abandons me and then uses her "power" to have me banned from the Misericordia Hospital as well as the Cabrini Centre when I may need to have access to both. She also used her "power" to get me fired. She doesn't fill you in on what she is thinking in regards to her patients. She does everything behind your back. She is very suspicious of everything. Laurie doesn't ask you questions before she does something behind your back. She thinks she knows everything. Laurie breached my confidentiality with others. Laurie has caused me so much stress lately.

Dr. Litwinson is not a caring doctor. She is just like the rest of them. I know I made some bad choices and if given the chance I would apologize. That is more than I can say for Dr. Litwinson. She has also made some bad choices but that is okay. I didn't think that it would bother me as much as it did when she yelled and sworn at me. I guess it did but I didn't know how to confront her about it. When I was a child and I tried to talk or have a confrontation with my mother I would get abused. Therefore I didn't learn and I grew up being scared to confront. Last summer I began to hallucinate. I didn't realize at the time. I began seeing my deceased brother everywhere. He abused me when I was a child. I started to see him everywhere, even at work. I also started to see my mother at different places including in Dr. Litwinson' office. In fact the day I raised my voice and said something to Dr. Litwinson, I actually thought I said it to my mother. I actually saw my mother sitting in Dr. Litwinson' chair. And right after I said it, I didn't realize what I had said. I was confused as I didn't understand what had just happened. I wasn't able to explain any of this at the time. I didn't feel present. I'm not an evil person and I never would have talked that way to Dr. Litwinson. I do believe the medication that she had me on played a big part in my behaviour, as well as I was experiencing a nervous breakdown after I lost my job. Three weeks later Dr. Litwinson abandoned me which caused me to have a major mental breakdown. I should have been hospitalized instead. My medication should have been charged. I hate myself for the bad choices that I made and I can't live with it. I wasn't a bad person. Nor am I this evil person that Dr. Litwinson portraits me as. I just needed extra help. And I didn't realize I was hallucinating at the time. I have been able to reflect back on everything that had happened after my medication was changed. And now I am left feeling alone, abandoned, rejected, depressed, vulnerable, and scared for an uncertain future. I can't go on like this. I don't even know what to do with my current medication. I feel it needs to be adjusted and I don't have anyone to do that. So now what I ask myself. Death feels like the only thing that is left for me to do. Atleast I will be out of this emotional pain that I have been in since Dr. Litwinson abandoned me. I wanted so much to get better. I really did. I was enrolled in a couple of programs that I was looking forward to. It doesn't matter now. Nothing matters anymore. I am really going to miss my grandchildren the most. Not too long ago as one of my grandchildren saw me crying he asked me, "Why are you so sad grandma?" I quickly wiped away my tears. I can't remember what I told him but I know I couldn't tell him the truth, he is only 5 years old. I can't let him to see that again. Even if it means I have to take my own life. I just can't let him or his sister know just how depressed I really am. I want them to remember me as being happy or atleast happier like I have been not that long ago. So I have to die for them. How did things get so messed up?

This is the only stress that I have being abandoned the way I was and with no closure. It is even more stress than the recent death in my family. I feel Dr. Litwinson is out to get me and to ruin me. After the end of the month I won't be in this constant pain.

I don't know who to believe anymore. Judy has told me that Dr. Litwinson does care. I actually did believe it. A fool I was to believe that. And the secretary that retired told me how well I was doing just a day or so before she left. She also told me to keep up the good work and I promised her I would. I guess I let her down too along with everybody else.

I would have gotten better. I know I would have. I just couldn't do it on my own. Nobody will help me. I don't have any support. And Dr. Litwinson thinks the worse of me. I wasn't a bad person. If I was I wouldn't have opened my doors to the evacuees, amongst the other things I have done to help them. If I was this terrible person that Dr. Litwinson thinks I am I wouldn't have a heart. And she is telling everyone that I could harm her. That is a joke. I'm as harmless as can be. This is just too stressful for me. I would have gotten better. Dr. Litwinson thinks that she knows everything just because she is a psychiatrist. Just because she has her degree in psychiatry doesn't mean that she knows everything. She is totally wrong about me. Because of her my depression has gotten worse. This is the worse it has ever been because of Dr. Litwinson. And she keeps making things worse for me by still dictating my life. I have been like a prisoner in my house because of Dr. Litwinson. I have been so scared to leave my house in case I run into her. I'm afraid that she will tell her lawyer that I am stocking her. I have been so terrified to leave my own house. I can't live like that. My grandchildren are the only ones to suffer after I am gone, but I don't want them to see me so depressed. They deserve better.

Sorry Dr. Litwinson. I didn't know my friend was going to post something. She is very protective over me. But it is true that I was experiencing a mental breakdown. I'm not the evil person that you are portraying me as. I would never harm you or anybody else, never. I could never no matter what. And I'm not this bad person that you think I am. I'm not. I'm really not. But you do need to know the whole story about my last job. There is more to it. And you are the only one I will confide in as I remember now exactly what happened and that I am thinking more clearly now.

This is a message for Dr. Shitwinson. Leave my friend alone. Haven't you done enough damage. Angela has not been back in that building. What you saw in the stairwell was old. Also Angela is no threat to anyone. She couldn't even hurt a fly. You call yourself a psychiatrist? That's funny because of how you handled everything especially my friends termination. And now you are having your patients put my friend down. Why did you choose that profession in the first place? So you can make people feel worse? You were her doctor for about 12 years so you should have known something wasn't right. And you should have known what she is like as a person. Angela was apparently suffering from a nervous breakdown after losing her job. And you a psychiatrist couldn't tell? And while she was suffering a nervous breakdown you make it worse by terminating her care. Then her nervous breakdown got worse and she totally lost it. She needed to be hospitalized instead of having a routine disrupted the way it was. All Angela ever wanted and needed was a chance to explain things to you. But you wouldn't give her that chance to explain everything. What kind of a person are you anyway. You would rather see her complete a suicide. She's feeling very vulnerable right now because of you and it wouldn't take much to put her over the edge, literally. But that is what you want isn't it.
