Oh my...so much in this thread to talk about. Firstly, CirquedeTruth....well done you on getting off the meds and getting your life back the right way
up. What a dreadful set of experiences. But you made it, so big hugs for you.
I can't agree enough about avoiding medication if you can. I come from a military/medical family...almost everyone is or was in a uniform, and they
ALL self medicate, either with prescription drugs that they swap like sweeties, or with alcohol. My personal belief is that it's our modern,
pressurised, urban environment that drives us mad. If the guys "in charge" really do have some nefarious plan to house us all in mega cities and
control us even more, they must also be planning on drugging us indefinitely to stop us killing them.
Anyway...I'm very much on the side of therapy or counselling, as an ALTERNATIVE to medication. As part of the process of trying to resolve issues
just to check on how your medication id doing maybe it's not so hot. I've been through counselling processes a couple of times myself and found it
to be massively helpful, but still very hard work. It's not a quick fix, and does require commitment and effort to allow it to work, but it does
work, at least for many people. And it has to be better than what big pharma want to feed us, right?
The other issue I feel very strongly about is that the urban environment is the worst possible place for us to exist. It's very often totally
unnatural, far too noisy whether we realise it or not, we are too close to our neighbours, and the pace and stress induced but the constant traffic
and deadlines is basically wrong for us. I definitely feel much better, calmer, happier, and more importantly....I'm much more productive....when
I'm out in the sticks. I moved recently from a small village which was right on a main road, so a quite isolated farmhouse, and within weeks, my
health issues started to clear up, and I got my life back. I also think that it has a massive amount to do with what's in the water. When I Iive in a
house with well water, like I do now, I'm so much better, I work more, I'm more productive, much less stressed, more focused, I do what I'm
supposed to be doing here, and have nowhere near the same level of tiredness and anxiety. God only knows what they're putting in the main water
supply, but it's not good.
