I first got put on Psych meds for becoming manic.
This was caused in part by working a bakery job 1 to 7 a.m. in the morning three days a week. My body couldn’t get on a normal sleep cycle. That was 10 years ago.
Since then I have been caught in the mental health system. I have been on several medications ranging from Lithium Carbonate, Risperidal, and Abilify. I’ve been in and out of pysch wards and crisis centers for the last 10 years.
I found Alternative to Meds Center about three years ago on the Internet. I really wanted to come, but couldn’t afford to. I tried several other natural treatments. The last few years, coming off of Psych meds proved near impossible. My last attempt at Abilify withdrawal in Oct. 2012, landed me in the Crisis Center one week after coming off of meds.
This last December, God worked things out for me to be able to come. I was only initially planning on coming 10 days, but before long due to some finances coming through, I was able to stay for a month. A month later, I am med-free and handling withdrawals with only a little bit of mental issues which I am able to handle with supplements and healthy living. Now, I am going to be doing After Care for a month.
I am so excited to be really living a med-free life and able to fulfill my potential. I know in the near future, I will be able to return to work, serious piano practicing, and school. All of which I was unable to do on meds.
