What a beautiful and articulate account. It often strikes me how strong, courageous and resilient many survivors are and you are no exception Moyu.
This is such a beautiful blog. Thankyou for giving such hope!
So inspiring Ryan. It is very moving to read how you have overcome the awful discontinuation effects of multiple medication, alone! I hear how you missed out on education and of course many other aspects of life. Yet none of what you endured is holding you back; that is a message of hope to so many who desperately need to know that escape from toxic psychiatry is possible. Thankyou for sharing your story of survival.
Yes – the title was not the best. Didn’t think about that properly.
Glad that it provoked discussion and made me think -so thank your contribution.
Thankyou for writing and I appreciate your comments. From what you’ve written it sounds like you have a very compelling story.
You are right -I am not sure it was the best of titles reading the comments. But discussion is good and many thought provoking comments.
I would not want to force anyone to do anything- I have been subject to control and coercion enough in my life.
My intentions in my ‘role’ as a healthcare provider is support but there is always a power imbalance and I am aware of that. It is difficult!
The getting out of it and recovery is a long story.
I agree that what happens in childhood is very important and certainly came back to bite me later.
I agree also that we do need each other -Village/community whatever we choose to call it – where we are accepted for who we are and with all our flaws and foibles and means we also have to be willing to accept others in the same way – not an easy business to find our ‘niche’ I suppose.
