How about you try living in my body and then we'll see how cheery and positive you'll be about life?

 

I can understand that you are angry but please don't assume that other people are not suffering.  I am 60 years old and have learned that we all experience suffering during our lifetimes, it's just different suffering.

 

If you aren't aware, DrugFreeProf has experienced the loss of one daughter by suicide and she has recently been caring for her other daughter who is experiencing major difficulties getting stablised after psychiatric drug issues.  DrugFreeProf is also trying to getting off a psychiatric drug.

 

When I was feeling suicidal I found this book helpful:  How I Stayed Alive When My Brain Was Trying to Kill Me: One Person's Guide to Suicide Prevention by Susan Rose Blauner

Does SA have any phone contacts?

 

 

This link is to support with others in withdrawal.  But it is not necessarily the survivors supporting those still in withdrawal.

 

While I hear you that it would be good for those (like myself) who have survived drugging and withdrawal to give back to the community by taking phone calls, it is just not practical.  

 

For my own well being, I don't always accept phone calls from friends.  A phone call is an interruption in my life and flow.  

How much harder would it be for me to staff a helpline for people in distress?  It is hard enough to deal with the fallout from these drugs on my own time, at my own pace - without it interrupting my schedules.  It is vital to my own healing to keep these boundaries clear, and I'm certain I'm not the only one.

As people get better, they tend to move away from SA.  I hear your wishful desire, and as more and more people survive these drugs - it is possible that someone will join together and provide such a service.

Until such time - I recommend listening to the excellent podcasts:  Let's Talk Withdrawal - James Moore

This podcast allows you to listen to survivors and withdrawal specialists - and it is such a comfort to hear how others have experienced withdrawal as well.

Moderator note:  After a few hours cleaning up this thread, I must reiterate:

Please only use this thread to post HELP for those who are desperate or suicidal.

 

Please keep personal comments about your own symptoms or emotional states in your own personal introduction thread.  Please keep personal conversations in your - or your friends - personal introduction threads.

 

Any personal comments here will be deleted or moved.  This time I was kind, and moved them.  Next time, the moderator may not be so generous.
