Freedom isn’t free. We have all heard those words but what do they mean? I recently decided to stop taking a medication previously prescribed by my doctor for anxiety. (Clonazepam) I couldn’t know what hell would be unleashed on my spirit when I finally stopped taking it. Depression, depersonalization, derealization, among a wide variety of other symptoms is dominating my life currently and will be for the foreseeable future. I started taking this drug in 2009 for panic and anxiety. The doctor upped the prescription to 3mg/day. That is enough meditation to Lay a “normal” person out for a couple of days. I decided I wanted my mind back. Klonopin is a benzodiazepine like Valium. It does help with anxiety but it also ruins your memory among other functions of the brain. It’s been 9 days without the medication and I’m starting to feel a little better. I’m nowhere near where I know I will be after a couple of years but I’m happy to say I can see a way up and out back to my Freedom. I wanted to share this with you all because; fundamentally it changed me. I’m not willing to pay that price anymore. If you have any questions feel free to email me @live.com and ask yourself what price are you paying? We all deserve to see the light of day unscathed by medication. I’m learning just how Strong I really am through this process. Thanks for checking out this article! Any prayers for me are much appreciated. Thanks everybody!
