".... the damn doctor wouldn't take her off it and I asked him to when we went in on the second visit. I told him I thought she was having some sort of reaction to Paxil but nothing was indicated on the printout sheet that we received with her prescription.
The third visit I even asked him to put her in an in-patient clinic to get her off it and maybe try something else, if anything at all. I wanted her watched round the clock by so called professionals so that they could get her on the straight and narrow quicker.
He told me there was no need to put her in an in-patient clinic unless.. He then turned round to Kara and asked her if she felt like hurting herself or anybody else. She said 'No'. He then continued speaking to me stating that there was no need for her to be in the clinic......"
Little Karla was an innocent young soul, a unique individual, a
"Child of the Universe no Less than the Trees and the Stars."
She is now just a 'statistic' alongside very many others.
Kara had"a right to be here."

In memory of Shannon's daughter, Kara, aged 12 years.
The last photo was taken one month before Kara died. She took her life at the end of her first day of SSRI withdrawal. Paxil is also known as Seroxat, Paroxetine and Aropax.
Despite her own loss and grief, Shannon was always there to help many others of us going through the worst effects of the withdrawals. Heartfelt thanks and love to you, dear friend.
