I spent my birthday in Santa Fe. It’s the first birthday I was well enough to enjoy in 4 years! The high altitude was pretty rough on my damaged body, but I survived!

I thought I'd written re all the many ways psych drugs are misused- but this study really surprised/shocked me. 10% patients w receive monotherapy. This is malpractice- no clinical indication/lots of complications/addiction risk. How does this stuff happen?

At the school 🎃 👻 parade today. The only reason I made it through my taper from hell is pictured below. The thought of her kept me alive on so many days when I was so sick and I just wanted it to end. Life is still not easy, but I’m glad I made it to the other side.

Been looking forward to meeting for more than a year. Let me tell you, talking about withdrawal face to face with someone who is also going through it is very powerful. Thanks, Christy, for your kindness and support.

So true. And there’s no pill to take it away, no doctor to see and no amount of money to make it stop. The worst part is that it can last for months and years for some of us. But that’s not withdrawal anymore, that’s BRAIN and CNS DAMAGE.

If your only tool is a hammer, you find nails. If MDs have only pills as tools, they way over-prescribe them for simple life distress. Causes patients to suffer harms from often unneeded // meds. Social prescribing/giving advice are useful tools for every doc.

prescribing crisis belatedly hits the news: "There's a lot of ignorance. When patients are started on these medicines they have no idea that they're addictive and habit-forming, and that's because doctors don't know either."

1:) Why would an ER Doctor be discussing a Xanax taper if it wasn’t the initial reason for the visit? 2:) What medical reasoning is there to taper a geriatric patient on a long term Benzo w/out complications? Have we learned nothing from recent studies?

Did he think she would, end the taper, stop the and her GABA-a receptors would just *magically* upregulate overnight and start recognizing her bodies own GABA?? That’s not how this works. It takes months/years for these receptors to heal.

who knew people would be so quick to stick up for ?? I work at an RTC and get calls all the time from ppl trying to get off their PRESCRIBED dosage but can’t because their doctors aren’t helpful at creating a taper. Or they just switch them to another .

At an outdoor rock concert with 5000 people. First time I can do this in 4 years. Couldn’t before because it was too loud, too late at night, too many people, too much walking, too sick from withdrawal. Healing happens. Bonus points if you guess the tribute band.

I left a comment on the video for but prescribed, dependent patients should be allowed to taper at whatever pace they need to. Cold turkey’ing & adding more meds is harming us in record numbers. I explain it some here:
