quote on DISQIS:


So when are we going to take this conversation to the next logical stage of discussion, and confront our willingness to ignore our government's criminal complicity with pharmaceutical corporations and the medical gestapo, to put the EXACT same overmedicated and vulnerable males into their worst nightmare situation?? What are we doing America?? Do you realize where they get the guys who will line up gun in hand to do their bidding?? How many more do we need to see destroy themselves -- how many more Fort Hoods and Fergusons, and Veterans blowing their brains out every day while on these dangerous medications have to happen before we will stand up to this abuse by our government?? The average ex-soldier-domestic military-cop guy is on 7 dangerous meds which are known to induce violence and suicidality. The problem is NOT the bad apple!! The problem is these killer pharmaceuticals. These criminally over-prescribed drugs distort and damage mood, perception, judgement, and cognition and our medical authorities are pushing more everyday on everyone. These guys who are volunteering and being recruited with sign-on bonuses and promises of career advancement, to sacrifice themselves AGAIN for this latest government evil insanity need and deserve PROTECTION, NOT FURTHER EXPLOITATION. Why is America allowing this to occur, to put another gun in their hand, to tell the Good Soldier to practice aggression against their neighbor. We have used and abused our young men to the point of self-annihilation of our culture. This planned roll-out of America's new Anti-Domestic Terrorist Security Army is a plan for mass homicide, suicide, and total disintegration of our society. No More Moral Injuries! Stop this madness. We need to eliminate the real aggressors. Medical Tyranny has taken over everyone's mind.

2009: Cancer hospital said I had adjustment disorder because I thought they were doing it wrong. Their headshrinker prescribed Effexor, and my life set on a new course. I didn't know what was ahead, like a passenger on Disneyland's Matterhorn, smiling and waving as it climbs...clink, clink, clink.

2010: Post surgical accidental Effexor discontinuation by nurses, masked by intravenous Dilaudid. (The car is balanced at the top of the track.) I get home, pop a Vicodin, and ...

Whooosh...down, down, down, down, down...goes the trajectory of my life, up goes my mood and tendency to think everything is a good idea.
2012: After the bipolar jig was up, now a walking bag of unrelated symptoms, I went crazy on Daytrana (the Ritalin skin patch by Noven), because ADHD was a perfect fit for a bag of unrelated symptoms. I was prescribed Effexor for the nervousness of it, and things got neurological. An EEG showed enough activity to warrant an epilepsy diagnosis rather than non-epileptic ("psychogenic") seizures.

:o 2013-2014: Quit everything and got worse. I probably went through DAWS: dopamine agonist withdrawal syndrome. I drank to not feel, but I felt a lot: dread, fear, regret, grief: an utter sense of total loss of everything worth breathing about, for almost two years.

I was not suicidal but I wanted to be dead, at least dead to the experience of my own brain and body.

2015: I  began to recover after adding virgin coconut oil and organic grass-fed fed butter to a cup of instant coffee in the morning.

I did it hoping for mental acuity and better memory. After ten days of that, I was much better, mood-wise. Approximately neutral.

And, I experienced drowsiness. I could sleep. Not exactly happy, I did 30 days on Wellbutrin, because it had done me no harm in the past. 

I don't have the DAWS mood or state of mind. It never feel like doing anything if it means standing up.

In fact, I don't especially like moving. I'm a brain with a beanbag body.   :unsure:
