Childhood abuse is "unpalatable" and so the epidemic of abuse goes unchallenged. When we start listening to people’s stories of pain rather than numbing them out and effectively silencing them with neurotoxic drugs we will start healing them. Until then people will remain broken. One of the most basic needs for a wounded human being to heal is to be seen. Recognized. Validated. Yes. Child Abuse is much more common than we think. The statistics are staggering, with 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys being molested by the age of 18. "End It Now" gives us an inside look at this silent killer, and the dramatic effect it has on a person's life as they mature into adulthood. The video seeks to raise awareness and train audiences how to respond if they witness abuse, or if they're experiencing it themselves.
Histamine intolerance (likely to apply to others on psych meds and coming off them too)
I don't, by any means, imagine that all withdrawal syndromes have this going on, but since the histamine effects those with intolerance by challenging the nervous system, and those of us with withdrawal syndromes seem to pretty consistently have radically dysregulated autonomic nervous systems, it might make sense to see if histamine is part of the problem. Also this sort of sensitivity unrecognized could lead to being drugged with psychiatric pharmaceuticals to begin with, so anyone taking some of these drugs might want to rule out this condition. Being that a lot of neuroleptics and benzos and it seems SSRIs too all have significant anti-histamine properties! I've not researched this thoroughly with all psychiatric drugs, but I know that personally I was on several with potent anti-histamine properties. Risperdal and Seroquel are both very potent anti-histamines.
