    There was mild mannered husband whose wife did not like his life style or his income. Playing their two children against him, she baited the court with charges of Bipolar Illness.

    Due to his own emotional failure he was hospitalized and given 900 mg of lithium carbonate per day. Released from the hospital when divorced, and maintained for 30 years of lithium therapy at 1.4 mg/day, his medical therapy was accidently reduced by half, and he became somewhat of his former self, 18 years of child support and no child visitation and recovery for his broken heart.

    There is little forgiveness the scapegoat can offer to a woman of such cruel vanity. Divine grace is the only source of such mercy that can be offered.

    My best advice, Jaws. Make sure you are not overdosed and that you can perform within society at a more competent level than by a toxic amount of lithium. Have blood levels of lithium for lab analysis performed often.

    Not to reveal any pity for myself, folks. Just to remind us all that criminal acts are perpetrated wherever in society that evil exists.
