And this healing journey is available to all
And what is your job…as a psychiatrist?
To help them find their way to their Own well being
To assist them in discovering what well being looks like for Them
Not the Doc or the drug company or the family or the friends, or the lover, or the healer, but themselves
And by focusing on their well being a little here…and a little there….not today perhaps, but tomorrow a little
And then at some point, they begin to actually enjoy, the unfolding journey
While I strongly believe that current medications make it more difficult to get back to Well Being, I do not recommend sudden cessation
Rather, find your way to well being first
On a regular basis
With safety nets available
Strategies and plans for you to deal with the often prolonged emotional, physical and mental withdrawal from these drugs that have messed with your ever so finely balanced neurotransmitters.
Neurotransmitters that are involved in every moment of your life
The Psychiatrist should have in depth knowledge of the cessation syndromes, otherwise they have no right to prescribe them
Healing is there for all
It is so
