wirobaso: My way to freedom


Recommended Posts

I was drugged for over 25 years with various types of pills. When a pill no longer worked for me, they changed me for another one and so the years went by until it no longer worked for me due to drug tolerance and I ended up fed up. I stopped all the pills very quickly. Some I left in cold turkey. I didn't know anything about withdrawal, and the doctors don't seem to know either. I know now because I experienced most of the effects both physical and psychological and emotional. 18 months ago I had to be admitted to a psychiatric hospital and they reincorporated me with psychiatric pills to get rid of suicdl ideas. I left the hospital on three other drugs, with too many symptoms but no longer suicdl ideas. So now I knew what psychiatric drug withdrawal was all about. I came off these new pills one by one and 4 months ago I took my last dose of quetpn, which was the last drug I stopped. Of the 600 mg that I had of quetpn, I am now free. I also got rid of Clonzpm 6mg, Esctlprm 20mg, Gabpntn 3200mg, Pregbln 1200mg and Dizpm 60mg one by one. The discomfort persists but I can now sleep and interact with people. I suffered 4 consecutive months of total and absolute insomnia. I couldn't fall asleep even for 5 minutes because I suffered from shocks and electric shocks when I wanted to sleep. He wanted to disappear because he saw no hope. Now I want to live because I see a light there near the tunnel. It is a matter of time to get out of all this suffering. Now I know that it is useless to be looking for blame because that only delays my recovery. Now I have taken charge of my life because I learned that with patience and perseverance we can get off these medications when they no longer serve us. I am now learning to live without pills after more than 25 years of taking so many pills.
Now I feel complete, now I feel free. Blessed be freedom.
