I just woke up from a dream. I was in a concentration camp.
There were men and women prisoners there and the guards were dressed as nurses. They were making us prisoners stand in a line and we were forced to wear white gowns. We were standing in a line to get a shot with a needle that would make us complacent. All the prisoners had had one conversation the night before about how we would have to break free. I was so afraid. When they lined us up to be given the complacency shots I started breaking things. I wanted us all to be free but i was acting out of survival because I wanted to live. One of the guards dressed in white like a nurse grabbed me and gave me a shot with a needle that was curved like a very thin wire. She got me in the ear. Other women started breaking things. The head guard came in he was like a doctor and he said they would take my balls if I had any so instead they would take my ovaries. I think they took them or they tried to. I think I may’ve gotten away some how. I was a little girl. I was running away from the farm like place they were keeping us. As I was running away I became confused and started running back toward to farm like place I was being kept. The place was in the middle of a neighborhood with normal houses surrounding it with normal families living in them. I ran to one of the houses and the person outside that lived in that house didnt help me, they just watched, as the guards dressed as nurses and doctors took me back to the farm house like place. I was then hanged and I woke up.
Now I am sitting here downstairs in my small rental in Louisiana, thinking about how I have been to Poland and seen Auschwitz. I have visited the memorial for the Jews in New York City and Washington DC.
These memorials were made for us to remember what happened to those people and make sure that it does NOT HAPPEN AGAIN.
I am sitting here realizing that what happened to me in my dream happens to people in mental hospitals in the United States all day every day. These people are not violent. These people are not stealing or raping anyone. They are probably not going to harm anyone. Yet they are put in the hospital by a person, usually a family member or someone they beleive to be their partner who believes they are “ill”.
I don’t know how to state this in a way that does not make some people think I need to be in a hospital somewhere. I believe there is a fear in very many Americans, that we are suffering from some mental disorder. If someone could make you believe you were sick, even though there was nothing wrong with you, You could easily end up in one of these ‘farms’ being giving complacency ‘shots’ and if you don’t want to take the complacency shots it does NOT MATTER. You will take the shot and if you try to get away, they will constrain you and give you the shot. It sounds a whole lot to me like a concentration camp, except the prisoners are not being workers. But there are people profiting from these patients being in there because of the amount of drugs they are being put on. I wonder how much pharmaceutical companies make off of mental hospitals. They are making these people believe there is something wrong with them, when they know deep down there is nothing wrong with them. They do not deserve to be imprisoned and drugged into complacency. They deserve to be helped.
