On the right is my daily prescribed dose of drugs. Klonopin, Buspar and risperdal. One is a sedative, next is for anxiety and lastly an antipsychotic. The doctors prescribe these to me for ptsd related issues. Mainly, I can’t sleep. One day without these drugs and I am in full blown withdrawal. I can’t sleep, eat, go outside or even interact with anyone. I am fully medically dependent on these at this point. On the left, you guessed it 😉 this treats every medical issue that I am currently facing. It makes my quality of life better. All anxiety is gone and I am able to get quality sleep. It 100% can replace the drugs on the right and at the same time have zero withdrawal symptoms. IN FACT, it treats the withdrawal symptoms from the drugs that I am currently prescribed. But guess what?? I cannot utilize the medication on the left because some asshole says it’s illegal and bad and no information to back up what I am telling them works for me. Why is this not being talked about more? Why is this issue not on every news channel? Why do we not have a voice to represent the ones facing the issue that I am? Who decided to let government tell us that a habit forming drug is better than a non habit forming one? This is something that I will never be able to understand and I struggle with daily.
