I left this comment in a comment thread on a post at Mad in America: Psych Drugs Kill vs Psych Drugs Save Lives. What if Both Are True?
It was a kind of exciting thing to write and feel at the same time. Because I really feel a huge sense of WOW when I think about this stuff these days.
There is so much more than the body and what the drugs do to the body.
Everything I’ve done in my life (and every pill I popped into my mouth) has made me who I am…able to fight this fight and understand it from many different standpoints.
I am grateful for every moment now and in wonder of the way life’s tapestry works.
What a mystery that that which harmed me too has been what has forged me that I might help others.
I’m perpetually in awe of how truth holds such paradox.
