You’re ok. You’ve always been ok. You’ll always be ok.

This is a guest post by Dr. Rebecca Care, a board certified pediatric gastroenterologist with the Digestive Care Center in Evansville, Indiana.

For about the one hundredth time since this journey began, I say to my red headed freckled son, “You’re OK, you’ve always been OK, you’ll always be OK.” That has been my constant refrain to reassure and encourage him since I realized his psychiatric medications were making things worse for him, and more importantly that he can survive and even thrive in this thing called ‘life’ without medicine. You see, my family and I are survivors of psychopharmacology — just barely. My son had been taking mind altering and neurotransmitter changing drugs.

Drugs that made him irritable. Drugs that made him anxious. Drugs that left him with no appetite and therefore, very slow growth. Drugs that left him unable to fall asleep on his own.

These drugs were all prescribed to him by his pediatrician and then eventually his psychiatrist. They prescribed them with the best of intentions. They’re both good doctors: they wanted to help my son. When they prescribed these drugs, they were following guidelines by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

When prescribed medications failed to help her, Joleen turned to cutting herself and smoking marijuana “due to the short periods of happiness I’d feel after smoking it. I was living a lie.”

“I read about the Truehope program in a local newspaper;
