This is the second year I’ve almost forgotten to commemorate the blog’s anniversary. Well, last year I did forget but got around to it a couple of days later. What’s happened is that since my withdrawal anniversary date is February 9 that date has overshadowed this one. But I do like to mark the blog’s anniversary date too since this blog has truly allowed me to move through the darkest and most difficult time of my life with some grace and gratitude. I don’t know what I would have done without this blog. I’m incredibly grateful, too, for all my readers who have in turn told me how much the content on this blog has helped them as well. I’ve often said that the blog has helped me as much as it has helped any reader.
So, I’m marking the day late today but I’m doing it by simply linking to a few posts from anniversaries past.
I’ll also share a page that I’ve not shared on the homepage before. You can always find it in the drop-down menus above (under the About section):
● Who is this site for? Readers experiences of this blog. — These are reader’s comments about what Beyond Meds has meant to them. I want to celebrate my readers today too, since as I’ve said, this blog would be nothing without all of you.
Some other anniversary posts:
- Living well while being sick: an anniversary post — at the time this post meant a lot to me as it really laid out a blueprint to get through being sicker than most people can even imagine. The skills I was learning when I wrote this post continue to help me to this day
- History…this blogs very first post
- Blog anniversary today and drug freedom — on the road to recovery
- 3 year anniversary of withdrawal from large psych drug cocktail: drug freedom continues — this was my withdrawal anniversary post from this year.
Lastly I’ll share the post I wrote for Dr. David Healy’s site that includes the reason as to why I even started writing this blog: Monica’s story: the aftermath of polypsychopharmacology
