A ‘Letter to Julia’ is the heartbreaking and inspirational story of the catastrophic suffering my daughter, Mary, and our extended family endures from the purposely hidden side effects of the drug Mirapex. This loving mother and wife, a well paid employee of a northwest high tech firm, descends into a hell of unexplained personality changes, compulsive behaviors and suicidal thoughts. Pulled from our 40th wedding anniversary dinner we watch in horror as Mary suffers the first of many debilitating seizures which eventually force the slow withdrawal from the drug. The hospital discharges Mary, but despondent, vulnerable and lost in an unknown world of mental and physical anguish she wanders away from home. I do what no father should ever have to do; in darkness and heavy rain, I search the black cold waters of our lake for her body. Miraculously, Mary survives withdrawal, but another nightmarish and more universal story begins when Mary, as a last hope, makes a desperate midnight cry for help to the makers of Mirapex in Germany. I chronicle the duplicity, blatant lies, coercion and legal bribery used by their lawyers. After fighting five years, these cruel tactics aided by the comp

Preface

Dear Julia,

It is for you that I’ve written this account of what happened to our family during the years your mother took Mirapex.I hope this book will help you come to terms with the tragedy Mirapex caused in all our lives and give you an appreciation of how your mother had prevailed and excelled in life under very difficult circumstances.Your mother would have never hurt you on purpose. Hopefully this will help you understand that your mother was as much a victim of the effects of Mirapex as you were.

By now you might be a young mother yourself with a daughter of your own.I can only pray that you will be as kind and as loving a mom as your mother was to you.

Love Grandpa

People say that large corporations are heartless.That is truly a misnomer.Corporations have thousands of human hearts beating within them, and each and every beating heart is beating within everyday people. These are people we sit next to in church, people we talk to on the bus, our neighbors, our friends, our families. Heartless? Hardly.

Natural disasters shake us to our very core since none, not the wisest, nor the most religious, nor the kindest or loving, understand, can help us understand why.But, even worse are the human made disasters.They are made from greed and indifference.They do not have to happen.Are not natural disasters enough to bear?
