I haven’t had my manic depression meds since they moved me, December 18. I’m up and down every day, to the point of having rage in my brain.
I’ve been begging these people to put me on Abilify like they promised me. I’ve put in 5 kites [written requests]. And I’m still waiting to see the psychiatrist.
I want to mellow out. The shit is getting to my brain. I understand what’s going on, and I can only remove myself physically from so many situations.
I can’t read. Can’t focus. I need to get on that medication. I’m depressed. Then I get manic and start feeling bad things and I come back to my cell.
I don’t wanna fuck up.

a sociopath is not something that can be treated nor cured
Note from Amy:
A reader from Alberta named Holly wrote to this Diary of a Predator website earlier this month and said this in part about Brent Brents:
“Even if he is diagnosed a sociopath then why wasn’t he helped. Why is the word sociopath considered a moral weakness – yet people who are depressed or bi-polar are treated like porcelain?”
Which prompted this response, sent anonymously on 7/25:
I believe if Holly was to do a little further research on mental disorders, she would come to conclude that being a sociopath is not something that can be treated nor cured.

Reader: “Sociopath” should not be used as a moral weakness
A reader from Edmonton, Alberta sent the following comment to this Diary of a Predator website:
Firstly, Amy I would like to commend you on your work. I saw the story on Investigative Discovery. I hope that you can pass onto Brent Brents that I do not believe he is a monster.
I do think believe mental health issues need to be addressed more than anything. The word “Sociopath” should not be used as a moral weakness. It should be seen as an opportunity to help a person. It IS a sickness – just like cancer.
I suffer with Borderline personality disorder. One of the most difficult disorders to diagnose.
Just to add I am not a doctor by any means but I can bet Brent Brents’ being diagnosed as a sociopath may actually be an inaccurate diagnosis. Even if he is diagnosed a sociopath then why wasn’t he helped. Why is the word sociopath considered a moral weakness – yet people who are depressed or bi-polar are treated like porcelain?
Just my thoughts. -Holly

lots of emotions i don’t deal with
So where am i emotionaly. the truth is Not so good. Spending my life in a cell really does eat at my brain. I catch myself questioning life. I dont want to be cowardly but some days suicide does seem like a valid thing to do. I get depressed out of the blue. There are lots of emotions i don’t deal with to well. Wanting to die is one. Anyway I choose life. What there is of it is more than I’ve ever had.
