Psychiatric drug withdrawal: preparation for before you begin

It’s become clear to me that whenever it’s possible that it’s helpful for folks who’ve not begun withdrawal and have the time to consider a carefully thought out plan to attempt to bring greater well-being to your body/mind/spirit before starting the withdrawal. I did not know to do that, but in retrospect had I known what a profoundly healthy and clean diet and healing lifestyle could do, I would have worked towards those things first. …

Will these symptoms ever go away? (chronic illness and psychiatric drug withdrawal syndrome)

A question asked: (Withdrawing from psychiatric drugs) caused chronic fatigue, muscle pain, burning skin and brain fog. I NEVER had any of these symptoms prior to meds or during meds. I guess the thing I worry about is if your body can truly heal from these symptoms. Can they go away on their own? Can they go away with time?

We need to learn to listen to and cooperate with our nervous systems…and heal…in the way that they dictate. This will be different for everyone and therein lies the challenge. …

This is not a revolution where we ask for equal rights, or we negotiate for freedom within the framework of dualism and dominance, this is a revolution in which freedom is experienced as a living reality, a reality that has simply been overlooked. Freedom is lived tacitly in the psyche. This quality of freedom is unbound, thus, the position of the dominator becomes irrelevant. It becomes forceless.

What will it take to wake up these hacks?

As I heal and come to more deeply understand and learn about exactly what happened to my brain on psych drugs I am devastated again and again. We are committing crimes of abuse, violence and harm every time we tell people they must be on psych drugs and offer them no options… The more I am healed from the brain injury the psych drugs incurred, the deeper is the revelation of ignorance and insanity within psychiatry. I may no longer be enraged because I realize the profound ignorance and fear that motivates psychiatry, but I’m more and more dismayed…

no one source of truth or light (multiple musings)

I get information and data about the living whole in every moment of my mindful existence. Sometimes I utilize systems, ideologies, religions, metaphor and/or myth, poetry, art of all kinds and science too. All manner of creativity and human productivity are expressions of the collective whole and thus a source of information and greater connection. […]
