ok so i have to rant about my old roomie. i lived with her for 3 years and watched her downward spiral in her addictions to drugs, alcohol, and sex. i dont need to go into details but boy was she a menace. i moved out over a year ago because her negative lifestyle was effecting me so strongly. the vibrations she gave off were terrible. anyways, by moving out i gave her a bit of a wake-up call. she decided to go to rehab.
recently she celebrated one year of being sober which is a HUGE accomplishment - but there's a catch. she is on several prescription medications because the doctors keep telling her she has (insert mental disorder here). honestly i cant tell you what they claim she has because its changed so many times i dont remember. each doctor tells her something else is wrong with her and gives her a new pill to take. a while ago she was hospitalized because the wellbutren she was on made her suicidal (or so she claims).
when i see her now, its like i am talking to a robot. she has no emotion whatsoever. she is on so many drugs that she just goes through life completely numb. how can she claim to be a year sober? she's more drugged up now than she ever was. i watch things happen that would have thrown her into a violent screaming tantrum a year ago and now she just shrugs and acts like it's nothing. shes gone from one extreme to the other and NOWHERE along the line has she been sober.
i dont want to put it in this perspective for her because it means that she's accomplished nothing. she's just traded one drug for another. she WATCHED me get off all my meds (because the doctors tried to tell me i was mental too) by eating healthy and exercising my way into happiness. for some reason, she just wont do the same. she crashed and burned on alcohol and weed and shell crash and burn on the prescription meds too. i dont talk to her much anymore because i dont want to watch it happen. if she isnt going to listen to the voice of reason the there is no point in speaking to her
i just feel very sorry for her and everyone else out there that thinks prescription meds are helping them. GET OFF THE DRUGS PEOPLE!
I just prefer being "crazy", I hate "sane" people...
This is part 1 of an extremely long but very informing film on psychotropic drugs. You can find the DVD on Amazon. Should be recommended to loved ones IMO.
thank you! ill be sure to watch it soon
that's exactly how i feel
