my primary question was what i have to do to taper off the medications. what supportive measures could i take while withdrawing, what local resources could i use(i have already identified that, but my parents need to act fast since i cant go on much longer without supportive measures)? what can be done to convince my parents who are unsure and ignorant about the scope of psychiatry and its limitations, if i have to withdraw since i am dependent on them financially. can an email be drafted by a third person (you? a mediator?) to let them know of the positive effects of withdrawal and alternatives to western psychiatry practiced by underqualified indian doctors. can you support me and be an advocate for positive changes in my life at this critical juncture of my life. i am 29, unmarried, 127kgs, prolactin , cholesterol off the charts, breathlesness, heart irregularities, fatigued, stressed, sleepless, unwell throughout the day, unable to work. all i need is a bit of positive encouragement,love and rest to get better.i am positive that a safe taper will be successful in my case and i can live drug free (again i understand how many people need medicine for life, but i luckily fall under the category which has a good chance of recovery.) . the only thing that went wrong is a forced(illegal?) hospitalization under tortorous condition at an indian mental hospital that my father put me in for a month following bad advice by psychiatrist. i dont even have the energy to sue even though a lawyer was willing. i couldnt sleep for a month here and worry that permanent damage has been done. a psychiatrist has told me the same. all in all psychiatry has ruined my life, ripped apart my family and i dont expect to live for a few more years. add to this i have a rare cancer (CTCL-mycosis fungoides) that i am not receiving any treatment for. i stuck on to psychiatry for 10 yrs. now would be a really good time to bail. so for me the first priority is to get admitted at a ayurveda inpatient facility, where they can help me with stress
, insomnia, obesity and there is even ayurvedic psychiatry which i was a bit skeptial about but looks promising. to say ayurveda is inferior to western medicene would be very diffficult for me considering my experience.
