What works for me

I just want to share the one thing that keeps me sane in all this craziness of withdrawing from psych drugs, and that is an extremely strong faith In Jesus, praying, reading the Bible daily, and having strong faith in Him.  If it were not for this, I would have gone insane a long time ago, due to many traumas and stresses I've been though in the past.  Jesus is with me (in Spirit) all the time, and with His help I will get through this.  I believe that when I die, I will go to be with Him in Heaven, and He will make all things right.  This helps me let go of the unfairness and injustice of what the health care system has done to me, and others, with these psych drugs. 

***Please note this is not medical advice.  Discuss any decisions about your medical care with a doctor who understands psych meds and how to withdraw from them, if you can find one.
