Death Grip: escape from benzo madness — new book introduced by the author, Matt Samet

 

I have only lived four decades, but I hope never again in life, even at its end, to experience suffering like I felt while taking and withdrawing from the drugs. At essence, looking back six years after swallowing my last psychotropic medicine and feeling saner, healthier, and happier than ever, all I can see is a vast black storm behind me: the physical illness, emotional lability, and compromised cognition caused by the pills; the hopelessness of being told that this chemical abomination was some underlying "organic" and "lifelong" "disease"; and the even bleaker hopelessness of having my autonomy stripped away in the hospitals, of forced drugging on a host of ever-more dangerous and unnecessary pills.

 

 

Often I wonder, just what the hell was I thinking, entrusting my brain — the very seat of my soul — to other people?

He speaks for many thousands of folks who've been denied their reality. I am in deep gratitude.

The rock climber?

"Well my ship's been split to splinters and it's sinking fast
I'm drowning in the poison, got no future, got no past
But my heart is not weary, it's light and it's free
I've got nothing but affection for all those who sailed with me.

Everybody's moving, if they ain't already there
Everybody's got to move somewhere
Stick with me baby, stick with me anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now."

Yea. That's terrific. You know everbody, Gia. ;-)

 

I am most imprssed -- okay also a bit jealous -- with how productive and determined Matt Samet is today. I have admiration for anyone who stands up and says "this is this **** that happened to me. It's important and it's true." Still 99% live in a world of blind trust to modern medicine and for every person who promotes their suffering, maybe one other can avoid it.

 

Also, it's important (someday) to see some accountability in the system. A lot of people were perpretrated agnst, and for what? For a little bit of money. And actually also a lot of money on the pharma side.

I hope this book gets a lot of attention in the mass media.
