ADMIN NOTE See ang's Intro topic with her earlier history here ☼ ang: help and confidence needed


 




 


Hello Altostrata and friends.            


 


I now believe I am a success story.  I am working, contributing and ENJOYING life again.  I am 58, so I am grateful that I can enjoy maybe a few more years of my life.              From the amount of drugs I was on, this is a miracle.   Took me I would say, many years.   Mistakes I made, so, so many,        ........then  in desperation ..........  I found this wonderful lifeline Surviving Antidepressants.


 


The pharma fraud, and psychiatric fraud, and $$$$ made destroying lives on these poisons, I can never forgive. 


 


I have not been able to update my own timeline, as I have been so happily busy.  I do, however, wish to write my survival story, maybe in 6 months, when I am permanent in my job, and will update with all the things I have done in the last 6 months.


 


Just wanted to say, is hard to revisit this site, remembering how ill and desperate I was.    But I will, and I will contribute when I can.      Yes, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel, for me the agony waxed and waned for a couple of years.   


 


Keep up the fight, never give in.             


 


Happy Easter Everyone.   I am so hoping you may be able to enjoy, but I know how ill I have been, and family and friends were just too much to cope with.    This easter, I cant WAIT to see my grandkids and family.   Yes the brain recovers from these poisons.              


 


Cheers

Hi Ang,

 

Congrats then........you are there/here....... :)   The job is going well I take it?

 

Hope it was and is a wonderful season of light for you now.  Of course there will be bumps and darker times.........this is life!

 

Did you get off the Seroquel then........or are you still on and off?.........the St. John's Wort?? and other stuff for your MTHFR, possible Lyme, etc.??

 

I do know how busy it can get when things get better......... and encourage you to elaborate a bit when you have some productive down time.  I think there is a outline of sorts that we "may" follow.  I haven't written up a detailed account yet either........ :wacko::)

 

It is a miracle!  Not without a lot of hard work and perseverance and help.......well, speaking for myself here.

 

So good to hear.

 

Love, peace, healing, and growth,

 

and manymoretodays

 

what do you mean you have a maybe a few more years of life to enjoy???!!!  Heck Ang........I'm going to be 60 in August and I am going strong and will continue to do so............lol.........G-D and universe willing.

 

And oh......okay........I see you said you are on the 6 mos. plan as well.........as far as a more detailed account, etc.  Very happy for you indeed!  And agree.......it can be tough to remember the worst, ayup..........I understand.

Ang, I have to ask you, how did you cope with the fact that it was a period of separation from those you love? Your family and grandchildren? I was actively involved until I went into acute and now prolonged W/D. Some of my family is having a very hard time with this. They just want me back. I am having a hard time with this also as I feel as though I am missing so much.

Ang, I'm so happy for you!  I'm late to your Success Story, but one thing you wrote resonated with me:

 

Happy Easter Everyone.   I am so hoping you may be able to enjoy, but I know how ill I have been, and family and friends were just too much to cope with.    This easter, I cant WAIT to see my grandkids and family.   Yes the brain recovers from these poisons.

 

For many years, even on the highest level of meds, I dreaded visitors or going away from home, overwhelmed by the preparation required.  Before meds, I loved Christmas, shopping for family. After drugs, I hated Christmas and birthdays/Mother's Day/Father's Day because I simply didn't have the energy or desire to come up with gifts...I still struggle there, though it is slightly better.  I am thrilled to see that this aspect of your life improved; there is hope!  To be engaged in life as you are, I dream of it!  I am so happy for you!

hello wow, just sorting out this stuff on this suppport group...........               Not sure I am a survivor yet....   Suppose I am, off the stuff, but the never ending nightmare remains.

I am still isolated, did work for 2 months, which was heaven.

But my immune system so stuffed, a bit of mould in my house, I am doomed.               

Yes I had a WONDERFUL easter, with my family, because I was out of the mouldy house, and I was recovering.   Job ended, unexpectedly, back to the mould issues, and the issues, are worse, ie once sensitised, a whole heap worse coming back.

I have a $2000 air purifier, now, I have an ozone generator, to nuke the mould, I have a caravan on front lawn, to live in....................                             But all contaminated.  I will battle on.......   the moulds, the HLA DR genetics (mould susceptible) the MTHFR genetics, all makes sense now.

The psych drugs werent ever going to work, for me.

Thankyou so much to this support group for being my brain, when I had no brain....................................  however, now I have my brain back, the grief is horrific, the realisation, that pharma do this for profit, that they vaccinate kids, cause disease, cause autism, for profit.

ie one has to fight the grief, the reality of the evilness, that got us here, and cope with that, then move on./

 

I am still in the grief, realisation period...................

Oh not to be negative...........................Gosh I remember the non stop panic attacks, all day, the brain going craxy, all of that, now I dont wanna get outa bed, cause someone shuffled my fully completed jigsaw puzzle in my brain last night,      I want to wake up now, with enthusiasm for life,  it will happen, but not in this mouldy house, and not while I have lyme or moulds or whatever.............. probably had them before the damn psych drugs?.................... :)                        

 

I have my brain back for that I am grateful./...........................  that is the main thing,  I NOW OWN MY BRAIN>

I OWN MY OWN BRAIN.  Heaven is, not needing pills to sleep, not needing pills to wake up, not needing pills to eat, not needing pills .....................                I HAVE REGAINED MY BRAIN,  the previous problems are back, ie MTHFR, HLA - DR mould, all these problems............... NOT ONE BLOOD TEST, OR VIRUS TEST, OR BACTERIA TEST DID THEY DO>      before they give these poisons, that near killed me.......................              and pharma, they then say, not our pills, she was fine, ie she is nuts, not our pills, dont trust what she says? Well I am a pathologist, and a chemical analyst, so join with me ,  and speak OUT .

Hello everyone!            Found out the moulds in my home are real bad,      as you can tell, I got a bit sick after Easter 2017, as I had to move back into mouldy home.     So I ""did a runner"" as they say in Australia, and when I got real bad 8 weeks ago, left the house, and went elsewhere.  

Now back on track, and happy.  Back in home today,   to catch up on my own computer  (with log in details saved).     I will never live in this house again, after this week.    

I even dumped the final few crumbs of seroquel, 8 weeks back.          So apologies if I posted my recovery story too early, but hey, a little bump isnt a major disaster.

Loving life again. 

Thank you Altostrata, and this survival group, you saved my life.

At 58 I am so grateful, I have a few years  (hopefully a lot more) actually enjoying life again.

Best wishes everyone.      Thanks again, to this support group, my family now enjoy my company.  My kids are amazed at how well I am. My grandaughter just summed it up

"'wow nanna, you are dressed!""  ie not in grotty dressing gown.

so hey, I may have to live in a mould free caravan, no power or shower, but I am well, and that is a precious gift.  And damn it, a learning curve, NEVER trust doctors, and NEVER trust pharma companies :)

Great to see you Ang. 

 

A "runner" eh?  :)  Love that.  And good, good that you CAN get away from the mold and into "caravan" living.  I want a "caravan".........they call them RV's here, for recreational vehicles.  I tried to run across the country this past August for a bio family visit and vacation.  Found myself unable though..........still healing.....in recovery.......learning and growing.

 

What are you thinking on the Lyme disease now?  Is it for sure?  Hoping the more acute symptoms were just the mold stuff.  I too, worried about Lyme this summer........it would have been acute though........a rash I got with one blister and what I thought might be a "target" lesion.  And...........I have deer friends frequently who come down from the mountains.  It was erythema multiforme though..........interesting, and probably just due to some remaining hypersensitivity, immune dysfunction, or other.  Who knows? 

 

Me too.......I "should" get rid of some of my collection of prescription medications at this point.  As well as some outdated supplements.  I found some in my closet from years ago.  Maybe just hang on to the last script for oxcarbazepine.

 

Freeing, isn't it Ang?  Still not a cakewalk or roses..........yet, bettah.

 

(((((((Ang)))))))

 

Love, peace, healing/in recovery, and growth at any age by golly!

This is from a Private message from Ang - but she want's y'all to know how well she's going since she "did a runner."  I think she has some problems using the new site software, and she asked me to share - because - it really is inspiring.

 

Those of us who have known Ang have nearly despaired - was there any hope?  

Listen to this:

Battling with new site, but am busy out and about, never home now  :)  I come home max one overnight, because the mould gets me badly now I am out of the place.  I truly think 80% of my problem was toxic mould.  The previous house I was in, that I couch surfed with a friend for 6 months, I wasnt real well there either.  Now I go there I can also smell mould.  My friend there, is now also chronically ill.  I told him  GET OUT, and dont look back. 

 

(trim - personal information)

 

I lost so many plants, I reckon about $50,000 dollars worth, due to 3 years being so damn sick. 

 

Anyhow, on the bright side, met lovely people on this support group, learnt HEAPS researching (sick in filthy dressing gown, typing like a true keyboard warrior!).......................                  and now I have emptied the dead pots, to remake the soil again into potting mix,

 

I dont see 10,000 dead plants, I now see 10,000 empty pots with POTENTIAL.

 

(trim - personal information)  Still a bit brain dead coming back to this house.  Son got his own place now,  wow, well done to him, at only 20 years old, bought himself a cottage.             Me?  My caravan in (trim - personal information),  or now with my new friend (trim - personal information), the guardian angel who rescued me  (ie come stay with me, until you are well).

 

Life is looking pretty good, hope yours is too!  I put your soap on the kitchen sink in Daisy,  my caravan.     

 

Have a great christmas, I will (hopefully) this year climb Bluff Knoll, with my daughter and grandkids......................

 

hugs

 

Wow!  Who is this woman, and where has she been?  

 

Caution to us all - about the psychiatric symptoms and complications of mould.  


Welcome back to living, Ang!
