I am not a medical doctor and don't even want to pretend to be one on the internet. Everyone has different reactions to medication especially psychiatric medication. I can only talk about my person experiences with these powerful substances.

I am not a member of any church.

I'm new to reddit and AMA so go easy or hard it doesn't matter, as I can be proud of the life I lead now.

I am a speaker who accounts my personal experiences to inspire young adults to take control of their lives. I have survived 5 different psych ward stays and yes I escaped one. I have proved all the psychiatrists wrong and now live a drug and medication free life.

I'm the author of Eluding Reality: A Memoir about Drugs, Sex, Psych Wards, and Recovery Free Until 6/7 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00D5p6owu and creator of a 30 day video series on Addiction.

I'm signing off and if this AMA did anything it's I hope it made you firmer in your beliefs about the mental illness field.
