Met my new psych today, he wants to lower my medication and have emdr treatment. That's the first time in 15 years that a psychiatrist has actually suggested lowering meds to me, just shows, fresh conversation with a new and different outlook brings on a different approach to things, me thinks.:p

good luck with things, I lowered my meds over a course of two years, have tried to come off them but things always go ape for me and I end up back on them. Also I have tried different drugs only to end up back on my older ones because I know I am safe with them.

I didn't find EMDR but use for me but I wouldn't stick to it, felt stupid tapping away but I would try it, some people have great results with it esp for ptsd.

Your anti-psychiatry/anti-med rants encourage people to come off meds & kill themselves & we all know everyone needs to be on maximum amounts of meds for life.

I don't actually like going to these appointments, all of the in depth psycho babble and attention from highly educated mind f**ks, does my head in, best left to my own devices.Watch a film on netflix, piss around with a few photos,have a smoke,make dinner, walk the dog, and I'm happy with a low key life style bimbbleing along. :meanie:
