Anti-anxiety drugs are extremely dangerous! I was avoiding writing about this. Last December I had asked for some anti-anxiety meds from the doc. The insomnia sucks, can lead to the dreaded destructive mania, so does the anxiety. She gave me Lorezapam. I knew they caused suicidal ideation as a side effect, but took them anyway. I got increasingly depressed taking them. After 2 weeks, Dec. 18 I O.D.'d on all the medications I had. (I had not tried to take my life since I was 12 - that was 1973.) I don't remember taking all those drugs.
I woke up in the basement of CVMC. There were paintings on the walls of water, sky, but no windows. They told me I had O.D.'d. I had sticky things all over my chest where they had monitored my heart. There was death, staring me straight in the face. I stared back. It took me four days to get out of the clutches of that hospital. Anti-anxiety drugs are extremely dangerous, insidious and can take one out in the flip of a switch. I will never take anti-anxiety drugs again. The drugs they give you for psychiatry make you sicker!
Chris Cornell is gone, there is nothing we can do to get him back. We love you, Chris. It is only just sinking in. Be extremely careful with any psychotropic drugs that are offered you. Avoid them if you can at all cost. There are alternatives. Homeopathic medicine. Herbs. Cognitive therapies. Music...
I needed help, not pills. I am currently doing EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing) therapy for PTSD. It seems to be helping...
Chris, hang in there, we'll all be together over there. So sad. Love you. Your family is loved and will be cared for.
