A Multitude of Recoveries Through Alternative Mental Health Treatments
I was a teacher, 5th grade, for four years before I accepted a corporate job out of my native state. My new job was highly stressful. I had a panic attack on the night of Nov. 23rd. 2005. I was rushed to the ER, as I nearly passed out. The doctor there told me that I was fine this was a typical panic attack and gave me Xanax. Little did I know that while in withdraw from this powerful benzodiazapine that my life would be turned upside down. Over the following weeks I was misdiagnosed with every disorder under the sun. I was put on many more medications including Klonopin, Lexapro, Lithium, Seroquel Atavan ... just to name a few. The pain still continued. I was suicidal. It was at this time that my mother found out about Truehope. I started on EMPowerplus in April and I immediately began to eliminate many of my medications. When we reached the point of eliminating Ativan I ran into a very rough patch in the process. I would run through the house at night lying down on chairs, the floor, outside on the porch, and would hope for a few minutes sleep. Sometimes it came, most of the time it did not. When I started to cut the Ativan my pain level skyrocketed. For the first time I began to howl in shrieks of pain. I did not know if I was going to make it through the horrible withdraw from yet another benzodiazapine. With my Truehope mentor and the strength of the vitamins I was able to become totally medication rree. I am now four weeks med-rree and am feeling more and more like my old self. I am able to drive again and have recently been volunteering back in the classroom. I have high hopes that I will soon be able to teach again. My sleeping patterns have returned and I am convinced that I would have been another statistic without Truehope. These wonderful vitamins have repaired the damage that was done to my CNS by the awful drugs especially benzos, that I was on. I cannot ever thank Truehope and their wonderful support staff enough for all that they have done for me. Thanks to this program I am getting my life back.
