Dissociation, psych drugs and chronic illness

In healing chronic illness with many acute, chronic pains I've seen that dissociation is not simply psychological but profoundly physiological...The process of getting chronically ill included layers of ever deepening dissociation from the body creating multiple broad spectrum illnesses...a dissociated body/mind cannot meaningfully take care of itself. Psych drugs allowed for these ever deepening layers of dissociation as they made the body sicker and sicker, the drugs largely numbed it all (though we're often not aware of it because, generally, we still feel really shitty anyway!)...

Happiness coexists with despair

The wise ageless one within. It's there...aching to emerge. *** Happiness can coexist with despair. It really can. We need to stop having such narrow view of what happiness is. The clearer we get, in fact, the more this sort of thing occurs. When we are clear we can feel anything on the emotional spectrum... Continue Reading →

Psychiatric Drugs Cause Harm — #WorldBenzoDay

This is the video I did last year for this day. Help raise awareness and please share it and other information about benzodiazepines today.  Visit: --  World Benzodiazepine Day: Change through Unity  (Facebook page) -- Recently I wrote another post about what it was like when the illness incurred by the drugs was at its worst: When medicine and doctors almost kill you…  Because, yeah, I was on death's door for a long, long time. It can still feel traumatic to really think about that time. I do hope we can help others avoid such a fate. ...

Heavy metal, gut bugs, the brain and profound healing

I'm doing heavy metal detox...intense. Rarely mention it because people don't understand how insane it is. I can feel metal leaving my brain. Metal hangs out in biofilms  with infectious agents...as this comes out so does decades & lifetimes--via ancestral lineage -- of emotional crap. Virtually no support during this process, really...not that I've found... Continue Reading →

Together we rise above the egregious & dangerous message of worthlessness

I don't think my life is getting any easier as I heal (which can really be a drag sometimes) BUT...I just love life more and more and more...truly life is good. Healing from brain injury incurred by psych drugs -- I'm not only healing drug injury but also the injury of having been thrown away... Continue Reading →

Body and brain are incredibly weird and fringe – astonishingly beautiful and horrifying too

As I heal my brain/body I lose the capacity to dissociate ... it's excruciatingly painful. Both physically and emotionally. ...

Email to yet another misguided professional

Some of you will remember I have a series of emails I've sent to perpetrating professionals of various sorts. The collection is called Letters to my Shrink but now includes a couple of medical doctors and various sorts of therapists etc. The below letter is to a craniosacral therapist who also has a doctorate in naturopathy that I just recently went to specifically for craniosacral therapy as it's a modality I've had very good experiences with. One of my closest friends that I've been friends with for decades is a craniosacral therapist and she learned on me back when she was studying. From that point on it's always been a modality of deep healing for me...

short and sweet: 6 brutal truths (parts)

Once we’re adults we cannot expect another adult to fix the infantile parts of ourselves that were never appropriately nurtured by our parents. Healing is about becoming conscious of those parts and then learning to reparent those parts for ourselves. No one else will ever know what all the little hurt children within us need....

Healing from trauma is an unlayering process

Healing from trauma as well as the waking up process, in general, is often experienced as an unlayering process. Lately I've been revisiting the oldest wounding again. It's been a doozy. It's got correlates in the body (and shows up as chronic illness via the psych drug damage--everything matters and everything is connected!) and so I've not been feeling well either. It's bringing up all the stuff about the system and healers that played into my even earlier wounding.
