This is a repost of a repost…as new readers are always coming on board and don’t know this is the current policy in place.

Someone just inquired again about contacting me personally for private correspondence. I post on Facebook every now and then about how I’m not able to do that since people often ask. Today I’m putting it here on the blog as well.
I’m sorry, I continue to not be available for personal correspondence or phone calls. I don’t have consistent energy or reliable amounts of energy and it simply sets everyone up for disappointment. That said I most likely won’t return to such open correspondence ever.
I was working up to 80 hours a week when I answered all my email and comments on the blog a few years ago…that’s simply not sustainable as all my work is done voluntarily. The blogs readership has since grown considerably. So I’m sorry, it’s simply not possible to answer everyone’s inquiries.
I’ve learned to make healthy boundaries for myself. I wish that there was meaningful support for everyone out there and in fact that is why I do this work so that more people will become aware of what is going on. I do understand all too well what it’s like to feel like we don’t have enough support. I will continue to work to create a world where such support is available in the ways that I can.
For support and info on psych drug withdrawal see:

- Online support in withdrawal
For other support and information on alternatives to psychiatry please visit the drop-down navigation menus at the top of the page. I’ve put a lot of time into making the archives as accessible as possible so that people might find what they need that way.
