My book Freedom From Psychiatric Drugs came out at the very end of 2018.
I had been writing it for about two decades… It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when I first started writing it. But probably around 25 years ago.
It’s been three years since I started doing book talks and despite the gap during the pandemic, doing book talks now feels somewhat normal to me.
This occurred to me today while walking and moving through some kind of midlife crisis type energy of feeling this urgency to “do something with my life“.
And then it hit me that writing this book and publishing it has been something. I thought of all the writings that came through me over the years, times where I would wake up in the middle of the night or early in the morning and need to get things down that were coming to me from beyond myself.
And I thought of the extreme illness and near death experiences I went through while on psychiatric drugs over 20 years ago.
And all the jobs I’ve done and all the things I’ve struggled with in order to continue to “perform” but also the spirit that led me to and through all of the different places I’ve been and roles I’ve played working with people on and off psychiatric drugs.
It occurred to me I have been a vessel for messages about how to get free from psychiatry for my entire adult life. And I feel some triumph in that.
And still hope that my work and words will be transformational for people achieving freedom for many years to come.
