In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

Beta-Blocker Be Gone; back you evil…

Sveta is going to be grouchy with me over this, but we do what we have to do and that I will do…

coffee-yumI told no one and fought it with no one! That is the only way to break addictions for me and sometimes, it gets lonely when you break them. For if you do not do it for yourself, then you will never break the addiction…

For 12 years I have taken beta-blockers for my heart. It has caused weight gain, sluggishness and many other issues. Including dizziness, tiredness, blurred vision, cold hands and feet, slow heartbeat, diarrhea and nausea and that is not all the effects…

I took them and never complained, I took them, then I kept reading about them and I read about what is now being said and found out about the beta-blockers. I broke them and walked away; regardless of right and wrong…

The village helped me in all this. The village I live in is a healing village and I am going to take full advantage of that fact…

I can attest for withdrawal symptoms, such as sweating, shaking and mood alteration. I also found a peaking of anxiety and it even entered dreams at night. Such as dreams of death and dying. I will tell you that with my past, dreams of death are common, but not of your own death and that is what I dealt with for weeks…

I was taking two pills a day and I went to one pill a day at night. That alleviated the dreams and most symptoms during the first week. Then after one week of one pill, I dropped them completely and spent two weeks struggling. The fourth week I am in now, is going good and I am done…

I kicked beta-blockers out of my life and the side effects are gone…

Have a nice day…

Good for you Kyle!!!! All the disclaimers on most meds are you trade one thing for 10 others that come with the meds. What do you do for dental care in the village? I just came from my 6 month cleaning and was thinking about that question while in the chair. L

Hi Kyle, You are the best judge of what you need. I don’t want to discourage your attempt to free yourself from medication but I would like to say something from my experience and understanding. Ideally, life should be without medicines. We want to be healthy and also want to be recognized as a healthy person by others and by ourselves. No medicine is without a side-effect — not even a paracetamol tablet that we take for controlling fever. Some side-effects and some ways by which treatment is given by bad doctors kills — in fact, I believe that half… Read more »

I think you have some sort of PTSD. If so, One thing you can do is stop reading news through the media. 99% of the news in the media is negative and it is so not just because of propaganda but because this world is screwed up since time immemorial.
You can instead read stories of inspiration, courage, love, wisdom, peace etc. You are what you focus your mind on. So focus on the positive aspects of life.
I am sorry if this seems to be like a sermon.

I’m with Arvind…good advice.
I have been on low dose Metoprolol for years now – no weight gain, no bloating, OK heart rate, BP under control (110-120/60’s). No bad dreams, and – if I keep away from the local news – pretty happy. I think you are walking through a mine field.

Domine, domine, Deus domine. adiuva me! (repeat while walking).

There can be a problem in communicating the problem to the doctor or a spouse because — well — they don’t know everything, certain things cannot be told to them, there is the difficulty in self-expression etc.
I believe that one has to make or allow an objective judgement after considering all the arguments with humility, an open mind, a courageous heart, a strong will, forbearance etc.
Whatever decision is taken by you or others or God, respect it.

I’m touched by all the kind advice from around the world for you Kyle. Arvind’s so articulate and caring and has excellent observations. We all care about your well being and we are from around the globe. We are the “good” people that care about others and not the ugly Americans as you sometimes wish to portray us due to hurts from this side. My mother who was quite wise always said…there are good and bad in every country and don’t paint a country by a few people. We have a conscience and answer to a higher calling. Have a… Read more »
