My name is Toby Lee Olson. I would like to share some information about myself. I was born in New Orleans, La. I was raise in Houston, Texas where I attended and graduate form S.F. Austin Sr. High.
My alcohol and drug use began at the age 13. By 18 I was an alcoholic following in my father’s foot steps. At age 23 I was diagnosed with GAD. I was treated by GP’s and mental health professionals. Both of my diseases progressed until I was hospitalized at age for acute alcohol intoxication.
I was referred to the Psychiatric Hospital in Yucatán, México. There I was diagnosed with major depression with GAD. I was put on anti-depressants and benzodiazepines. I was on this treatment for 9 years.
During this I worked in Mexico as a tour guide and studied psychology Mezzo-America history. I started an English school and work in the church with the local citizens.
At the ushering of my family and self-conscience I returned to Texas to amend for a legal which arose before I went to México. I was in incarcerated for 18 months and I am currently on parole.
The nightmare began when I was incarcerated in the Harris County Jail for 7 months with out the proper Mental Health treatment. I abruptly taken of all my medications and made to suffer for 7 moths while the authorities used me as a lab rat. I was then transferred to TDCJ for another 12 months where I continued to suffer for my illness in prison.
I was released on 11/17/06 and have been trying to get help from my local MHMRA. They will not give me the proper treatment for my mental condition. Please someone help me!
I am hoping to find an opportunity to use my experience where my past mistakes will not prejudice my future
