Allegations of drugging Mary

Please Note:
One of the facts that I did not stress in my letter to the Illinois Department of Aging that supplements the ignored complaint that Mary Sykes personally filed and the Petition for a Protective order that was never heard, and the various cries of help that she uttered is the fact of the alleged drugging of Mary Sykes.
It has been alleged by family members that on one or more of the rare occasions that they had contact with Mary that she had been drugged.    The family members investigated the drugs and discovered that amongst the side affects that were published were effects that mirrored the diagnosis that was published by the guardian ad litem and the plenary guardian.   They have however provided no medical information to back up their diagnosis.    I do not consider a diagnosis by a doctor who did not physically examine Mary Sykes to be valid or informative.   I also suggest that any physican who relies on a history advanced by the alleged abuser – who claimed to be a PhD – having put the letters phd after her signature – to be suspect.
Thus, when a wellness check is done – especially of a woman who has had multiple trips to the emergency room – and virtually none prior to being placed in the custody of a person who she (Mary Sykes) accused in a Petition for a Protective order – a drug test should be done to make certain that the check is not compromised by drugging.
Let me make this very clear.   Elder abuse and Financial exploitation is a serious business.   Serve and Protect mean exactly that!   Jerry Sandusky  targeted childen and exposed the Paterno Syndrome of ineffective CYA law enforcement that has been demonstrated as equally applicable to the Mary Sykes case and literally hundreds of other guardian abuse cases across the fruited plain.   Now that the ‘dirty secret’ is out it is time for Law enforcement to redeem itself and earn back the respect of the public.   The tea party, the occupiers, and others have demonstrated that the American public is ‘fed up’ with unresponsive ineffective expensive government replete with a credo of Ignoring substance in favor of ‘good form’ and meaningless words!
The drugging of the elderly is not a new thing – it is just so reprehensible that the fact slipped my mind.    I apologize for not mentioning this unconscionable tact in my previous communication.   Anyone who would deny a mother communication with her children and her siblings is a monster!   Any public official who would attorn and aid and abet such a situation is a charter member of American branch of the National Socialist Party.  Democracy is not a spectator sport, and if we are not diligent in its defense we will lose it.

  1. The drugging of Mary makes sense to me. She was very upset about leaving her home and younger daughter. No one in the family seriously doubts that her earnest desire is to return home and to have Gloria care for her will only be masked with drugs to make the situation look “normal” to the outside world. She was led out of her house believing the trip to Carolyn’s was just a short visit and became upset when she found that wasn’t true.
    Drugging of the elderly to control and forget is one of the dark sides of nursing homes and the Probate Court which allows this to continue. Unfortunately, psychotropic drugs have serious, and often permanent side effects. Therapy works much better, but the courts ignore ordering that or asking about drugging the elderly with psychotropic drugs or investigating these matters further.
    Many psychotropic drugs when used for more than 5 years have a 20% incidence of the risk of permanent schizophrenia (hearing and seeing voices not there). Other long term use risk factors for psychotropic drugs include permanent dysphasia or facial muscle paralysis.
