Freedom from severe anxiety and depression
For about thirty years, I was on antidepressants. I did fairly well with them for a while, but as time went by they were no longer as effective, and I started experiencing severe anxiety. I began taking a variety of medication combinations. And prescription drugs were not the only means I employed in my attempts to cope with stress. I also tried, at various times, smoking, exercise regimens, binge eating, and drinking alcohol, along with several forms of therapy. Nothing worked, and things seemed to keep getting worse.
Finally, I ended up on four medications, taken throughout the day and night. The psychiatrists knew that the medications caused suicide ideation—and I attempted suicide twice—but they didn’t know how to help me without them.
