Starting a new life after severe protracted withdrawal

5 posts in this topic

I'm at a crossroads and could use some advice. Essentially, I am looking to start a new life, perhaps even in another country such as Asia. I've lived in the US most of my life and, while I don't exactly hate America, I don't love it by any means either. I'm looking to start completely new: new name and identity for starters.. perhaps denounce my US citizenship.

 

I guess I'm wondering if anyone else has done so or at least felt like doing this. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I really want to do this too! There's a country I'd love to live in but I'm not recovered enough to go on my own.

 

I think it would be great to try, where are you thinking of moving specifically if you don't mind my asking?  Not that I'm very literate about Asia, just curious.

I forgot, way back when when I first was harmed by psychiatric drugs, I was on a message board and one of the other people there had been harmed in the early days of Prozac being on the market.

 

She actually got a settlement for the harm, hard to do, but had pulled it off, and took the money and moved to Costa Rica if I recall properly.

 

Didn't want to stay in the US because there were too many people on the drugs and it scared her.

 

Then there are various stories of people who actually went on the run from forced psychiatry in different areas and moved to other countries, I have found a number of those.

I'm considering South Korea possibly or Thailand. I have a good friend from the Philippines but not sure about it yet. Wanna travel and see how it goes. I know this though, in some places you can buy a nice big home for pretty cheap compared to the US. Plus you don't have to pay such disgusting American taxes. Basically I've been saving for this possibility. And it's easy to find a girlfriend or wife over there also, or so I've been told.

 

Would be nice to get money from the damage these drugs caused me but as you mentioned it is very to prove. Class action would be a better route I'm afraid.
