Andrea Yates had been DC'd off meds just prior to these murders, and contrary to popular belief, discontinuation off psych meds can lead to radical, abnormal, irrational behaviors in some people. I'm clear on the fact that there were many, many different components to how and why Andrea Yates killed her children. For all we know, she could have truly been possessed. We know she was diagnosed with post-partum depression/psychosis. She could have been having a bad hair day for all we know. I don't even pretent to understand how or why a mother would kill her children. What I do know is that the side effects I experienced while on this medication were debilitating and horrific. I can attest to doing things while taking this drug that I've never done before and would never even think of doing today. The thoughts that went through my head and the actions I took...well, let's just say I'm still cleaning up the mess as we speak, one year later. Discontinuing this medication (FOR ME) was almost as bad as being on it.

I find it fascinating that some people are so offended by this topic, reacting almost like I'm saying they'll kill their own kids if they continue to use it! Pleeeeez!
