Jim Carrey, Prozac Survivor
I am not sure how many of you are aware of how many celebrities have gone through what you are going through or have gone through. But this is one success story guaranteed to warm your heart and give you hope.
This is one great comedian that Pharma did not get with antidepressants! Tragically we lost Phil Hartman and Robin Williams to these deadly drugs, but Jim Carrey has made it through to show us all there is a way to survive this antidepressant-induced nightmare!!!
Posted are two videos. The first just a two minute statement with Jim saying he got off Prozac:
The second one a lecture he gave just this Spring after being awarded a doctorate degree at a University in Southern Iowa. It is an excellent speech that everyone should hear! My favorite line from the lecture is this: “How will you serve the world? The effect you have upon others is the most valuable currency there is in life. Everything you gain in life will rot and fall apart and all that will be left of you is what was in your heart. Risk being seen in all of your glory!”
This is the comment to Jim that I just posted on the above video:
Jim I am hoping you will see this. I recently tried to reach you to be in a movie I am in that is coming out soon. You would have been perfect for it!
I should have stopped by to say this years ago, but there are so many people in trouble on antidepressants now that finding a minute for me to break away from helping them is not easy! But I want to congratulate you on making it through and out of the pit of hell the antidepressants throw people into. For years I told my kids as they would watch your movies that what they were seeing was the manic phase brought out by use of Prozac (even though it was not public knowledge at that time that you were on the drug – it just was obvious to me because of working with so many going through the same thing). I wanted them to understand what you were really going through behind the Prozac mask you were wearing for the world to see.
I know all too well how hard it can be to survive these drugs and I want you to know that I am glad you made it! I share your success with others who think they cannot crawl out of that hole and I know you raise them up to their full potential again and out of the bondage these drugs put them in with their horrific mind altering, life numbing, and horrific withdrawal effects. THANK YOU JIM!!!!
Tragically here is a list of many who did not make it through as unscathed as you did: www.ssristories.NET In their memory I would ask you to share their warning they have left for others by way of their sad and tragic outcomes to these drugs and then I would ask that you continue to encourage everyone to believe in themselves since these drugs continue to lie to them telling them they are worthless and can do nothing.
