Back From The Brink

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 5, 2011, 11:19 AM

Its been a while since I last uploaded anything, in fact the 21st of last month and a while prior to that, I'm not going into details but the last few weeks have been a bit of a roller coaster, in fact the last few years have but I have only just realised just how much. I put my faith in the medical profession when I went to them with issues but it seems my faith was misplaced, you should be able to trust your doctors to help you, its sad when you find that they simply palmed you off with pills that you later find have done you more harm than good. Things are still not right, I have a while to go to detox what was put in me and then to adjust the way I think, to have more control over who I am and no more reliance on poisons to make me right, the only one that can do that is me.

Apologies for my absence but I hope to be able to think a little more straight soon :)

Ahhh... yeah I've had friends who had pills that mad matters worse rather than better too.. fortunately for me, my best friend is a pharmacist so I always ask her what the meds I got are suppose to do, and whether they can be eaten together (not many people know this, but certain meds cannot be eaten together because they either counter the good effects of each other, or cause some serious medical problem...) - she's told me it's not unexpected that doctors may not know meds as well as they should because they specialise in knowing the human body and what malfunctions cause what illnesses/diseases, but not as much on meds as pharmacists do.

I think that pills work, but they have to be the right ones, taken for the right lenght, and they have to be a transitional help, because unfortunately healing it is not just a question of strenght of will, and this is why sometimes we need meds. But pills can not be the whole care. They can't take the place of the research of the reasons of your feeling bad, of the identifying the problems and resolving them (or most likely making peace with them :D ). Hang in there Mike, change doctor and start to feel better as soon as possible!
I root for you :-)

My advice is to go to a natural doctor who is not into drugs. The problem is the doctors and the drug companies are joined at the hip. No one gets a kick-back on the natural stuff so they are not trying to push something on you for their own gain. Best of luck...detox is a great idea! Hope you are better really light up da!!
