Amen to that! (Good) information is indeed the new currency, and this place is rich in it.

 

Thanks so much for your continued work, Alto.

 

I think here is a good place to paste what I posted on my facebook wall a month back:

 

To all veterans of wars, children damaged by psychiatry, and students caught up in the student loan debt swindle, and to everyone else who found out the hard way that America just pays lip service to your private suffering while it spits on you publicly...May you find peace. You deserve it as much as any American.

Thanks, everyone.

 

I just added a link to the first post -- a simple click will donate a meal to a food bank. (A bank is going to fund this -- cine, you should enjoy that!)

Thank you, Alto, and the same to you and all our mods and members. And thank you for the tremendous amount of work and dedication you've put into this forum, and for the gift of being a moderator. That has given some purpose to my life despite withdrawal.

 

May we all find complete healing and contentment in the New Year.

Another winter solstice and occasion to reflect on the past year and the coming year:

 

Some of us are healed and some are still healing. We all help each other on our paths. Thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way to this site.

 

And for our dear, dear moderators Petu, mammaP, tezza, Narcissus, Edted, Rhi, GiaK, basildev, dalsaan, and admins Jemima and Karma  --

 

I'm so darn proud of each and every one of you. You each give such very excellent advice to our members. You've all mastered the weird, complex information we need to know about tapering. And, on top of that, you're all very kind.

 

This has been a difficult year for me, I don't know what I'd do without your help.

 

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

 

My very best wishes to all for the winter holidays and the new year,

 

Alto

Best wishes and thanks to you, Alto! A year ago today I took my sisters aside and told them I was stopping one of my many meds (Zyprexa) and I felt really crazy and I didn't know what would happen. I opened a gift from my mom, something that might make you chuckle, and I could not stop laughing for more than five minutes.... By the end they were staring at me with great concern. I really don't know what would have happened if I hadn't found SA in my frantic, agitated Internet surfing. Sometimes I can't believe how far I have to go...but I also can't believe I've made it this far. Thank you so much! I hope 2014 is a wonderful year for you, Alto!

Thank you so much for all the help, Alto and all of the mods here. You have given us all so much, a safe place to come and express our anxieties and to share our successes and setbacks. I thank God every day for this site and all of the help it gives. We would be lost if it were not for all of the helpful information that has been gathered and set down here and for the experiences of others, what works and what doesn't. You keep our flagging spirits up and cheer for us when things are good.

 

Thank you and peace to all!

That is a neat site. I clicked the link and had a look around. I bought some stuff to have shipped to a friend and it said I just funded 150 cups of food for a < $40 purchase. You don't have to buy anything, I just found some stuff I liked as they are having a sale.

 

Cool.

Thank you for accepting all of us PP refugees.  I don't know what I would have done if I'd completely lost contact with those I affectionately call 'family'.

 

Merry Christmas to you and yours xxx

Wow, a year's gone by already since last year's craziness, lol - and I'm still here, if rather less frequently these days.

 

Thanks to Alto, all the mods and members, for making SA a great place. 

 

Sending wishes to everyone for a joyful Christmas and a wonderful New Year. 

 

May 2016 bring us continued healing and learning.

thank you Alto and all the mods and everyone here, I am so grateful to have found this place!
just a few weeks ago, I literally thought I was going mad/crazy, off the deep end and never coming back and now I know, I'm going to be just fine, in time.

It's "just" withdrawal from a med I probably should never have been taking in the first place

 

oh what a huge relief it is to know that I *can* get off of it, that I can recover from all it's done to my brain, and that while WD is tough, I will get thru it
I am so far ahead of where I was a month ago, and each day brings more hope for the future.

 

I don't like to look back, which is why I had such a hard time with my signature (which is still just a rough draft really lol)

I only want to look ahead

and to enjoy each and every new drug free* day to the fullest

 

 

I am sad and sorry that we are all in this boat, but very thankful to  you all for sharing your journeys. advice, tips and encougagement

 

BLESS YOU ALL!

 

*ok, got ahead of myself there, I'm not drug free YET but am getting there, the safe way! slowlyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Merry Christmas to all here at SA.  Much thanks to the mods for keeping this place running and a place of useful information and gathering of people's stories without extreme drama.  

While I cannot read and contribute to this site as much as I would like, this place has been instrumental in giving me one of the greatest gifts mankind has-and that is hope.  Hope will keep you alive when energy, passion, and peace have fled.

 

Much thanks to all of you for giving me hope.
