How Psychiatric Medications Ruined Me.

Postby UseToBeDaMan » Wed Oct 12, 2011 5:19 am

Long story short:

1. I use to be superman now I'm almost ghost-like.
2. I use to have nut so white it could be confused with cake icing not its just creamy, yellowly and not so white. Kinda clear actually.
3. My dick shrunk.
4. I'm physically weaker, I use to be one of the people who were just naturally strong as an ox. The type the you see standing at 5'8 145 then see him hit someone and the jaw shadder be like "wtf". Now i'm lucky to give someone a black eye for 3 days.
5. I lost the part of me that i'll never get back. My sense of wonder. These medications took the life right out of me. My father did the same but I could always deal with him. But both? Nope.
6. I use to be able to get almost any girl I wanted because of personality but now i'm lucky to get the attention of girls at all. I use to be tan because of what I assume is Italian but now i'm white as a ghost.
7. Oh my bodyfat use to naturally stay around 7-8% but now I work my ass off to be around that.
8. My IQ dropped a few points without a doubt.
9. My memory is shot.
10. I have no fraends.

Hi,

So, are you just going to accept this as it is? It is fine for you to comment on the negative effects of your medication, but I trust that you aren't just sitting in the sidelines here... there is obviously much work for you to do. It would be beneficial, however, if you were to tell us what medication you are actually taking. I took one for a few years that affected my energy levels and libido. However, I went to the gym regularly and made sure to masturbate even if I didn't fell like it. My point is that there are counteractive and productive measures to take, and that you certainly should not just accept things as they are if they are not to your liking.

While saying all of that, any issues that you haev with medication should be raised with the doctor wh perscribed them to you...

Take care my friend, and good luck

Kevin

What's masterbating got to do with it? And is your reading comprehension not up to par? I said I work my ass off to be built like I use to be without doing a single push-up. Point was I use to be popular have girls, money anything anyone could want until one night I was drunk and instead of being took to jail I was took to the hospital instead and sent involuntarily to a behavioral center and put on Respiradol (and I swear I don't hear voices..) and since then my life has been in shambles. I want to speak out against this horrible medications that are sololy used to control people. Want to help the mentally ill? Give them a friend and someone to talk to. They will flourish.

Why are you equating that with 'success' or a good life? A good life can be found in any situation if you are willing to bend your vision to see the good in the bad.

I doubt that you and I will ever see eye to eye, but I want you to know that i genuinely wanted to help you, okay?

That's all that I have to say. i do wish you the best of luck.

Take care

Been off going on 2 years this December. I never fully recovered, I would say if 100% was before and 0% was my pitiful ass after taking them I'm at about 90%. Which is why I'm against people taking any at all. It would be a completely different if they had no possibility of permanent damage but with the possibility of it there, it's just not worth it. Especially if you are already perfectly capable of functioning like a normal person.

I just cant believe that meds could turn you into such a wreck like you said before. Glad you recovered, though! All you took is Respiradol?

Psych drugs ruined my marriage , A little "side effect".

This video explians a bit how I got sucked into psychiatry and ended up taking lots of pills
Pills for your Ills you tube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UnJ4H8JLmM

My lack of interest in her cause those "chemical balancers" for my seratonin...thats a Fraud BTW.

It wasnt like "anti-viagra" it took time to destroy that part of me, the glue that holds a marriage together.

I wasnt the guy she married, those pills screwed every part of me, body and mind leading to more pills.

Good job with that 1 to ten list, so true. My health has permanent damage also.

Im starting to think this wana-be online "activism" isnt healthy for me,writing on this post reminded me big time of my life BEFORE psych drugs... and the damage caused by them, not just the ugly coercive abusive side of psychiatry I was a victim of leading me to google "human rights mental health"...
I survived psychiatry.
