Chronic illness and pharmaceutical injury…what is it?

This is my experience after what, at this point, amounts to thousands of hours of mindful presence with the chaos in my body. One learns when one focuses attention. One learns a whole lot. That is meditation. Focused attention.

So, my experience of chronic illness:

Chronic illness is the body saying no to the toxic societal structures that we have internalized…healing from chronic illness is healing the whole human shebang.

~~ To be clear healing does not mean curing. There is no cure to this being human. ~~

This is also not to suggest that there are not real physical correlates to these societal structures. Pharmaceutical injury is a violent intrusion of societal structure into the brains and nervous systems of people who are sensitive. The structure becomes a real mirror of destruction within the body.

Detox is the breaking down of these internalized societal structures. They can become extremely complex if there’s a lot of microorganisms and heavy metals as well as neurotoxic substances involved…the pharmaceuticals set up opportunities for multiple infections, in fact.

People sometimes appear possessed because, frankly, they are. Microorganisms can profoundly affect our consciousness. (our microbiome…our gut…the balance of microorganisms matter…healing, from this perspective, is in some sense is about internal ecosystem management).

Detox can take the form of energetic, psychological, emotional and physical detox processes. Some folks need to concentrate on one more than others — other people need to focus on just about everything in their life to bring it into balance especially if we’ve been chronically ill.

My body had to construct alternative detoxification routes because of the damage that happened to the brain. This level of interoception is a bit much at times, I’d rather not have this capacity quite often. It restructured pathways  — while I followed it’s lead (direction) with all my healing practices. It totally needed my active, focused, conscious cooperation. I did that by learning to listen to my body and shutting out what society (and pretty much everyone else) said. It was critical to do that for me.

***

We equate health with peak physical condition ignoring the fact that a person can have a perfect body yet a fragmented being, or conversely a sense of wholeness within what might appear to be a broken body. The real barometer of health is spiritual rather than physical.

***

Healing/transformation is not always a graceful process. Sometimes it’s exceedingly ungraceful/unskillful. In fact we bump up against every edge and frequently look the idiot if we’re actually doing the work.

***

Healing is about accepting and being completely who we are with whatever limitations we have. Sensing wholeness, even with a broken body because nature always holds us in wholeness. When we listen we learn flow in whatever condition we find ourselves in.

***

The times when we say we feel most alive are when we feel most deeply connected to life itself — not our own life, but life in its totality. We are always that.

Here’s the thing: when you come off of psych drugs…

Some tweets from this morning…they come from a few different threads and I’ve strung them together….I now hang out on twitter in a non-mental health scene. The mental health scene got to be really toxic for me. Not always. I needed it to learn and grow and heal. But now, it’s not what I need. I need to see beyond what’s happened to us and it’s not healthy for me to be around people in agonizing pain all the time. It was keeping my PTS alive in ways that frankly kept me from being able to heal my own body as I supported others. I still support many people and I still speak and do this work. I do it differently now, however and it’s important that I do. So with that preamble, I’m sharing some tweets. I still share this info but I do it in a crowd of people who largely have never thought about these things. In other words, I no longer cater to the choir. I think we need people everywhere and introducing these ideas to folks who’ve not considered them is also important.

At the suggestion of my good friend Harry, I’ve chosen (mostly) not to edit the below tweets. It’s in the raw. If you find words that are popularly considered obscene problematic please don’t read it.

The twitter words:

Here’s the thing: when you come off of psych drugs — You have to deal with the withdrawal which is sometimes heinous and dangerous both. But beyond that you then have to feel every last thing you did not feel because you were on those damn drugs.

And then you have to go back and feel every fucking thing from before you were on them as well. They make everything exponentially more difficult. They should never be used except in overt crisis. Then they should be tapered off as soon as possible…

Alternative methods of care and safe spaces at that point need to be found. At this point, unfortunately they need to be created. We’re all rather fucked unless we have resources to create them for ourselves. I speak because I am one of the lucky few & life remains off the charts

We actually really need you all to recognize us and help us get what we need. The fact we really are tapped into stuff that help us understand the nature of reality if we can be healthy. That right now is not happening we are unhealthy and dying on psych meds I am not kidding.

It is far too risky for most people to speak this way they have to hide and play the psychiatric game it’s really awful.

And sadly it’s the majority of people reading this thread will think that I am being hyperbolic and that is what we all have to deal with. That is active oppression. Are you participating?

My typos are unfortunate. But I am tired. see if you are one to judge those typos too. It’s nice to come up with any reason to dismiss uncomfortable news, isn’t it?

I left the Twitter Echo chamber that is the pharmaceutical injured ghetto because frankly it gets old and people are too angry and hurt to see past their own experience. Fact is however nobody else gives a shit & they should because everybody comes into contact with Pharmaceuticals

The stories of the drug injured matter. We are buried beneath a pile of pharmaceutical propaganda. The human species actually needs us sensitives. Fucking wake up the rest of you. That’s why I’m here where virtually nobody pays attention because some of you actually need this info.

So I toot this horn every now and then and then I go back to regular fun non-dualish tweeting for the everyone else and myself too.

I enjoy that much more.

Another thought for consideration: as an oppressed group we are unique because we exist isolated in families that often are complicit in our being harmed. They are in over their heads too and have no idea since authorities say that’s what we need — Psychiatry and drugs.

In any case we are surrounded only by people who tell us we are sick we are wrong we are bad we are unredeemable. It’s all very dangerous bullshit. The internet is allowing us to find one another and help one another in ways we were never able to do historically. I am grateful.

It remains difficult but we are here and we have a lot of work to do.

Remember:

There is nothing wrong with you

Wild medicinal mushroom foraging, harvest and the soup I made…..

My first thrilling foray into mushroom hunting. I cooked about 10 pounds of them today. They’re amazing I didn’t even pick a third of what was there. I’m so excited these are highly medicinal and delicious both. Medicinal mushrooms have been helping me a lot every fall — the rest of the year I can’t even eat them, actually, but during the fall I need them. This is mushroom season, so we see that my body is in synch with nature…something I learn about more and more every year with the passing of the seasons.  (some posts on seasonal changes here) And this one is good for this time of year especially:  S.A.D? (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or might we be fighting nature?

IMG_20191010_141632_390

Chicken of the wood mushroom soup. Had a bowl for breakfast and a bowl for lunch. I froze the rest of the cooked mushrooms in single meal serving size to be added to whatever food is asking for mushrooms!  Delicious!

And so satisfying to  forage and harvest my own wild medicinal mushrooms! After my yoga teacher training I hope to train formally in plant medicine/herbalism. I’m already an amateur…if I can still be called that given I’m healing my whole entire body/mind/spirit with the help of plant medicine. They guide the way at this point. I listen and follow. Beautiful!!

Here is a nice short video on this particular mushroom. Chicken of the Woods:

psych survivors, professionals and trauma healing

The more severe the trauma is the less the pop-culture trauma fad is resonant or safe…be careful out there…a lot of so-called trauma therapists are grossly undertrained and frankly dangerous for the most sensitive and highly traumatized among us.

What happens when you go to an enthusiastic but frankly ignorant trauma oriented helper of some kind? what can happen for the most sensitive that trauma dynamics can be played out with the therapist and they have no idea what’s happening. Retraumatization at the hands of such folks is common. Some of us get lucky but many of us don’t find folks we can work with. This is okay and we need to learn to trust ourselves if that is the case.

this can happen with very well-intentioned therapists and healers etc who simply have no idea how certain kinds of trauma manifest…it’s just the climate right now…some of us are on our own. It’s a bummer but boy do we learn a whole lot once we accept it…and always remain open for the people who are really our allies…they’re out there…it may just take longer to find them…from the outside they can look exactly like anyone else…we need to learn to feel into the energy of folks and trust our bodies intuition about whether we can work with someone or not.

And sadly when it comes to those of us who’ve been psychiatrized even the therapists who are pretty well known and do pretty much know what they’re doing with everyone else, will have problems with us…it’s just the way it is for now. We scare people and as soon as fear is part of a therapeutic container, things will go bad unless we learn to see what is happening and take care of ourselves. Once we can see what is happening we don’t need to continue working with anyone unless we know it’s safe and healing for us.

on a slightly different but related note:

I just realized that the reason I don’t (for the most part) work with healing professionals of any kind unless they are actually my friends is that it does away with the professional veneer. I can’t handle not dealing with my friends/peers because I want REAL. I want intimate.

There are a couple of exceptions in my life…those professionals could be friends in another life/timeline…but not this one…good people though…people I trust and respect and vice versa.

When people hold back big parts of themselves as most professionals do you can’t really feel into their energy and know if it’s a good idea to trust them or not. Hence it’s not.

Observing that professionals hold back and knowing that’s not a good fit for me, is not a conflict…it’s just the way it is. I move on and mostly away from the professional. I discover NATURE and NATURE in the environment EVERYWHERE…being my medicine leading me to that which I really need…not to what I’m told I need from people who do not know or understand my needs.

~~ don’t chase and don’t run away from feelings ~~ (and yoga teacher training update)

first! thanks to those of you who have made donations towards my yoga teacher training. I’m now officially enrolled. I’m excited. It’s the first ongoing commitment I have made (outside of my home) in 10 years. I was explicit about my limitations and they remained enthusiastic about my participation. I will continue taking donations. I’ve paid for one third of the $3000 tuition fee. I have until June to finish paying in monthly installments. Any help will continue to be much appreciated. donate with PayPal  here. More on that here: yoga teacher training. a long time coming

and now some regularly scheduled odds and ends for your perusal:

The collective dream is the hypnosis of social conditioning. Only sages, psychotics & geniuses manage to break free. ~Deepak Chopra

In response to Deepak I say:  Be the sage, the psychotic and the genius… they are all within us, every single one. 

***
~~ don’t chase and don’t run away from feelings ~~  that’s right,  You can’t heal what you don’t feel.

***

Shut down the narrative about what and why you are doing what you do and just start watching yourself in action and in stillness, too. Watch and learn.

(meditation is really just the process of learning to pay attention)

Projection: so obvious when we watch others doing it

Not so clear when we’re doing it, right?

Stop pointing outward.

Look within.

there are no sides. there is no us and them. wake up.

Untying knots. That’s a fair way to explain the whole of my healing process…even if it eliminates all detail which is also very important from other vantage points. In any case, Untying Knots is likely to look totally different from one person to the next.

***

It’s good to remember nothing is all toxic nothing is all pure –there is a time and place for everything — there’s a time and place to put down everything.

***

I no longer use social media in ways that stress me out. I’m here to tell you, it can be done.

***

The Earth is calling me back home. I feel strong even when I’m weak. What magic.

***

Sorely under appreciated is the fact that the microbiome largely controls consciousness. When the gut is full of toxic bacteria/virus we are quite literally possessed by bugs that make us unwell. Our ancestors were not stupid when they recognized possession. They were right.

Also the microbiome is not just in the gut. It gets complicated — biofilm actually can spread all over the body and those infections do not show up in lab work so it becomes very complicated and Western medicine really doesn’t know anything about how to help people who are most seriously impacted. Understanding the microbiome and gut/brain health remains in its infancy and most MDs have no clue how to meaningfully support, let alone heal, the gut and body once there are grave imbalances.

(more on gut and health)

***

There is nothing under the sun that is appropriate for everyone all the time. capitalism and marketing will have you believe that you need all sorts of crap you absolutely do not need…pay attention and extract yourself from the machine….

Our society teaches us to compete. Stop it. Just stop competing. And stop listening to marketing that says that every damn last thing is the best thing ever. Just stop that too.

Tobacco, addiction and healing

I never quit smoking and I don’t smoke anymore. What I did was start mindfully smoking. I started to feel every bit of the smoking process — both the deliciousness and the toxicity of the smoke as it entered my mouth,  into my lungs tingle in all my cells. I smoked every cigarette like it was my last one until I no longer smoked. I didn’t smoke for 11 years and then I experienced tobacco in a ceremony. Tobacco came to me in spirit and filled my heart. After that I have smoked tiny bits ceremonially off of cigarettes. I am no longer addicted. So I didn’t quit smoking — I healed my relationship with Mother tobacco. She is a sacred plant. 

I find that through harm-reduction, rather than via hard-core abstinence I’ve been able to bring healing to all my addictions. I’ve not talked explicitly about harm-reduction as a healing modality, but the truth is my entire path could be considered one of harm-reduction. When I worked in social services I worked for organizations that used harm-reduction models and it really influenced me and my healing journey. It’s a highly respectful way of being with oneself as we heal from the attachments (sometimes addictions) of the modern world.

Tobacco is a beautiful plant. When I first moved to Appalachia 15 years ago their were tons of tobacco fields. Really beautiful. They made me feel happy. Small tobacco farms you could watch the whole harvest year happening complete with barns with hanging plants.

All so lovely and all gone now with the shifting trends around cigarette use. I get that tobacco is flagrantly misused, but the loss of those beautiful fields and a few hundred years of tradition still felt like a loss to this yankee girl who moved to the south …

We’re all profoundly unique and complex and it’s really, just the lack of understanding that fact alone, that makes western medicine so dangerous for the sensitive among us.

One need not believe anything at all and in fact belief will mess you up. Faith, however:

Calling the therapeutic space that you hold safe is misleading. It may be safe for most of the people who show up but there will always be people for whom you cannot hold space. The people on the fringes are the ones who are repeatedly traumatized.

Let’s be explicit about our limits that others may have a chance to stay safe. Thank you.

I’m applying for a yoga teacher training. Very excited about it. If you’d like to help me get there and you’ve ben I would very much appreciate donations. Below is my application for a scholarship which will hopefully pay for part of the tuition which is $3000. Most of that I do need to come up with myself.  If you’d like to help you can donate here.

Any amount is welcome:  EVERYTHING MATTERS: BEYOND MEDS PAYPAL account. Whatever you send will be  forwarded to the yoga center until I reach the total needed.

Dear Asheville Community Yoga,

I’ve wanted to take this training for several years now and my physical condition has made it impossible to pursue. I have multiple brain injuries that I’m coming back from and over the last decade now I’ve been slowly rehabbing. I was bedridden and nonverbal for several years and the last 8 years it’s been back and forth in and out of bed and slowly, slowly cleansing and healing the over-taxed damaged microbiome and nervous systems. (Brain injuries impact the autonomic nervous system, thus causing havoc in any and all bodily – and subtle-bodily – systems).

It’s been a highly chaotic and lonely journey since the entire medical establishment denies what is happening to those of us impacted in this way, I’ve had to go within and learn to intimately listen to and respond to my injured body. Mine is a radical self-healing journey. I have done this while advocating for and documenting the plight of many multiple thousands of people harmed by the same pharmaceuticals I was taking. As a social worker in San Francisco I worked with clients impacted by the same pharmaceuticals that injured me. I have seen, up close what happens to folks on these drugs, both as a professional and as a patient. I have emancipated myself from the system and no longer utilize the psychiatric system at all.

I’ve become well known in critical psych circles and my work is now taught in some college classrooms. It has yet to make enough impact on delivered medical care, however, and people continue to be harmed in the multiple thousands. My work is not done. My site helps folks emancipate themselves from the psychiatric system and learn holistic ways of healing. This is done with the understanding that people need to do all they do at their own pace in their own unique ways, and sometimes that means taking psych drugs in a world in which appropriate alternative options are simply not offered or available for most people. My work is done in the hope that we can change this so that no one need ever be hurt again in the name of medicine.

So, with that intent, I’ve been helping folks navigate yoga and learn how to do home practices with challenged nervous systems for many years now. (see yoga posts here) Yoga has been one of my main practices in a life that now is always, 24/7, about healing myself and the collective. Most of us with these injuries cannot handle the classroom for some years. Indeed, for many years I rarely made it through a class, often leaving in 10, 15, 20 minutes and then doing most of my practice at home…a few minutes at a time as my challenged body allowed. Now finally, just this year, I often make it through entire classes and I can go to the more advanced vinyasa classes though my stamina is still only just developing. I often still have to skip those classes or sometimes leave early…but WOW! It’s such a revelation to make it through a whole vinyasa class, hot and sweaty. What JOY.

Yoga saved me. Literally resurrected me out of my bed when I was totally atrophied. I could barely make it to the toilet. I didn’t leave my house for a couple of years. I started yoga by sticking a leg up in the air and rotating my ankle. Then my arm and rotating my wrist. Just that for some time, actually. Slowly, slowly I did those little bits of one or two minutes of yoga, here or there, wherever I was laying down, until I could do it while I was sitting…then sitting on a mat…and slowly slowly, I did more and more…it’s taken YEARS of being totally proactive. People do not appreciate that these sorts of chronic illnesses (and most of the serious chronic stuff we see these days are all related in some ways…I could have gotten multiple diagnosis if I wanted…you know fibromyalgia, lyme disease, CFS…on and on…these illness are all variations on a theme…the body in overwhelm due to highly toxic environments we all are now subject to) In any case…healing isn’t straightforward quite often and for those of us with these long-term nightmarish illnesses it can take a very long time and the medical establishment as well as alternative health options rarely have the patience required to help us figure out what we need…again, this is why we need to do it largely for ourselves once we get out on the fringe of what we understand as a collective, we’re really on our own. Our bodies, of course, are a mystery and the health establishment doesn’t actually know how to work with that. In this regard it’s been a gift to learn the listen to the whisperings of a screaming body. To take heed and care for it in a way that has been largely forgotten by our species.

Anyway, Asheville Community Yoga has been a real, consistent, ongoing partner and ally in my care and healing transformation. I tell people about what you all have done for me all the time and generally start crying while doing it. I have offered most of what I do free of charge to those I advocate for … my work has been done largely without compensation and your generous existence has allowed me to always do as much yoga as my body can handle. I’m so deeply grateful for that. I want to raise as much of this class fee as possible and intend to start a fund-raiser on my site as I send this application off to you. I will send you whatever money is donated as I receive it via paypal. Any amount you can help me with would be great.

I would like to talk about a couple of details in terms of accommodations too. I still honestly cannot tell if this application is premature or not but I know I want to do this more than anything right now. It’s burning in my heart.

Let’s talk soon. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Please know that you can be clear and straight with me in communicating any reservations you might have etc. Let’s make this happen and work for all of us.  I understand that might mean doing it on a different timetable or whatever.
