But she faces more forced drugging in an upcoming hearing on
Wednesday, 19 January 2011.
Linda is a MindFreedom member who is living peaceably out in the
community in a group facility, Care Partners Assisted Living in
Steven's Point, Wisconsin. Linda says her forced over-drugging is
causing her to live in a state of "lethargy and brain damage."
Please take a moment to contact Wisconsin's new Governor to request
alternative non-drug treatment for Linda Eiden, see ACTION below.
Says Linda: "I am only 49 years old, and the drugs I am being forced
to take make me completely lathargic."
She feels "I could be a normal functioning human being with
alternative treatment to the drugs."
An MFI volunteer interviewed Linda and says, "In my opinion this is
abusive, a waste in productivity. I, as a volunteer at MindFreedom,
believe that Linda should have the right to humane drug-free

Linda is currently up for a recomittment hearing on Wednesday, 19
January 2011 at 8:15 am in the morning at:
Portage County Courthouse
1516 Church Street
Stevens Point, WI 54481-3501
Her judge: Portage County Judge Fred Fleischauer
This hearing may lead to her continuing to be forced to take -- while
living at home out in the community -- powerful antipsychotic
('neuroleptic) drugs such the drugs she is on:
Geodon, Risperdal, and Cogentin.
She's also on a variety of other prescribed medications.
Said MindFreedom director David Oaks, "There's a lot of talk today
about 'big government.' A citizen like Linda being forced to take
multiple powerful psychiatric drugs out in the community in her own
home is an example of 'big government' at its worst. I'm a survivor of
forced drugs, and what a waste of taxpayer money, and what a waste of
a human mind."
Linda says, "These drugs for me are never helpful. They cause murder
of the soul of an individual. I want to be helped with healthy diet,
exercise, counseling, detox from all drugs, and rehabilitation."
Please help MindFreedom International to free Linda Eiden, and find
her real help!
