It is good to take note of the med you are speaking of & like you say once they have a patient in this loop of doctors & meds it's hard to get out of it. I know that the aftermath of all of this accumlated loss post ex h Psychopath, is a nightmare. It has to be THE worst experience & devastation in total I have experienced. BUT like you say pushing through as much as possible without being drugged up is better than getting into more complications (via meds).
I think the new drugs too they don't know the side effects long term. Plus as you say the commercials are enough to scare a person with what can go wrong, it's a wonder why they give the patient the meds in the first place.
I feel I did a lot of healing with ex h Psychopath & also was positioned in my life that I wanted to marry, waited & was actually very happy with him, in love & excited about, "us." BUT he over the course of a number of yrs unravelled everything that was familiar to me, to the point my life is barely recognizable as to what it was before. My supports are not there as I need them & with my current disability issues of which are not unbarable but it's that I do not now have the supports I am needing ... SO, I do hear you that in loss & major loss in particular it can send a person into a spiral effect of which most doctors & social workers are EAGER to treat with prescription drugs.
I think this scenerio of medicate is worse now too than ever before. They LOVE treating people with anti depressants, they rarely give out anti anxieties. I hear what you are saying!
My own belief is that the world itself is in a VERY psychopathic state of control of which the drugs, anti d's, narcotics, anything that causes a dependence, top /down affect, which locks a person/people, all of society into a needy state & thus confused & dependent. It only fits too with the economy failing, job loss, etc. Why not drug the people so they can't feel at all.
The Psychopaths do this in such a clever way of luring by placing a person/people on a pedastal but later very conveniently & covertly knocking them off, beating them down & running over with a bus, while they walk away & laugh/ which compares to the state of the nation/s' people now lacking in so many areas. It would be one thing if there were opportunities & genuine caring of, the people, one for another but it seems there is a general NEED for control of those that seek to destroy. The battle good vs. evil is real & I think there are those that are suffering in the extreme because of the egomaniacs, greedy, evil intentions, of many of the ones, "in charge."
Why not drug the people, that they shut their mouths & better yet, take away all of their capabilities, of which psychopaths love doing, mask it with their fake commitments, lies of genuine concern .. the whole world is broken down. I suspect that this incapacitated state of those whose lives have been cut down neglegantly will pay a price.
Those that I talk with who are telling me some of what is going on behind the scenes at one (gov) agency in particular I know is also rampant all over & for a long time where they let people go that are ready to retire & there is NO true belonging or concern for employees, those devoted for yrs to service. Esp those near retirement, they make sure to fire.
They say that psychopaths function best in a bad economy, when things in the world are falling apart because their nature is one where they love the adulation, their egos feed off of the oppression of.
Likely many to most psychopaths suffer from a personality disorder which in many cases is biological/ brain related where they are wired differently. That doesn't excuse AT ALL the damage done to others of which in many to most cases for their victims is life altering.
What you are saying Dianna in your experience & then in dealing with the medication that further breaks down the healing which has to take place in a state of loss from all of this, becomes almost a, "time tunnel," scenerio.
I think the world is in a free fall mode right now, there are those that are, "in the world," & those, "of the world." No matter what prescription others write, remaining clear & able to make decisions, rejecting that which is false, walking through the fire, no matter how hot, to love, seeing truth, living truth & not becoming part of the lie.
Psychopaths may be different & I suspect there are those whom God Does give a purpose in their walk as God Is Love, but pretending /medicating to the false, turning heads when people hurt, being part of oppression & demise is not the answer (in my mind).
One day soon, there will come a time when the beast will write that script of choice, the mark, of which there is no mind, eternal damnation /suffering will follow. I believe strongly that some right now more than ever, their extreme suffering & there are those that suffer at the hands of another, it shows, "the signs of the times."
(I think you said you got off the soap box.. so I decided to use it for a bit!?!
Praying you get to feeling better Dianne!
.. at least holding onto to our spirit/ the love that is, our energy, light, as spirit beings, noone can crush us.. for all souls to keep that in mind...
life is eternal & no person or situation can crush our spirit/soul. God Never Leaves us!
I loved ex h Psychopath so much & it just perplexes me to no end how he could do what he did to me..
but I keep in mind, God Wrote The Book of Life, & pardon my lengthy post..
