Drug free healing from depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, etc…

 Stories of healing and transformation

This post may be cut and pasted in its entirety and shared without further permission.

These are all stories of recovery (or the word I prefer is transformation) that involve freedom from drugs/medications. Most everyone on these pages were told they would need psychiatric drugs for the rest of their lives and proved psychiatry sorely wrong.

There are MORE healing/transformation STORIES HERE — specific to extreme states such sometimes labeled psychosis, with accompanying books and websites for further reading.

This is mini memoir at Mad in America: Everything Matters: a Memoir From Before, During and After Psychiatric Drugs — from a few years  ago now. Healing has since snowballed.
