UPDATE: AND THIS TOO. #WORLDBENZODAY is an important move towards awareness. BUT The psych system is toxic all the way from top to bottom…which is why benzo day is only a small piece…benzos are not the problem…the system is. Psych drugs injure all manner of folks-not just benzo folks. Zyprexa, for example (a neuroleptic), has killed many thousands…far more than benzos have killed…but no one says a word because it’s given to folks who are “psychotic” and therefore, according to psychiatry, worth the risk. The Zyprexa is just an example of one of the most deadly drugs of which there is no denial because it’s well documented and yet still ignored. All the psych meds can kill and routinely do. This is a travesty!! Let us call all psychiatrists to accountability.

When medicine and doctors almost kill you… Because, yeah, I was on death’s door for a long, long time. It is still traumatic to think about that time and continues to be trauma inducing in general, really. Healing takes a really long time. I do hope we can help others avoid such a fate. …
Recovery is hard. Healing is hard. It’s also beautiful. Hang in there. It gets better: The IT GETS BETTER SERIES

AND yes, I could use some compensation for the many 100s of hours I’ve worked with folks over the years. Working like we do and not getting any sort of compensation that I might live more comfortably in the face of continued challenges continues to teach us what we’ve learned from psychiatry. We must not be worth it. Let’s change that patterning. If I helped you or a loved one out, please help me back now. thank you.
****We could use some financial support at the moment! You know, for things like the mortgage so that we can maintain a roof over our heads. Yup. I do this all for no other compensation than what the readers want to offer in support. Thank you!****
