    the Bible (Isaiah 40:28-31) " Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord,
    The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
    He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
    Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
    But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
    They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint."

  2. Notably, when Evins participated in a commentary on marijuana
    legalization for the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, the publication
    found that her financial relationships required a disclosure statement,
    which noted that as of November 2012, she was a "consultant for Pfizer
    and DLA Piper and has received grant/research support from Envivo,
    GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer." Pfizer has moved aggressively into the
    $7.3 billion painkiller market. In 2011, the company acquired King
    Pharmaceuticals (the makers of several opioid products) and is currently
    working to introduce Remoxy, an OxyContin competitor.

  3. For me personally, I was a heroin addict for 7 years but also did other hard drugs recreationally. It wasn't until a month before I got clean that I went to Santa Ana California for rehab. I ended up leaving after a few days, and was homeless for the rest of the month trying to get home. I met a lot of people during that time that did primarily meth but also heroin. So I started smoking and IV using meth everyday all day. I was getting both drugs for free from the people I was with. It was the first time I really did meth everyday, where as in the past I only did it every now and then. Also, I wasn't eating or sleeping, the ppl I was hanging around tried to get me to but I just wasn't hungry or tired. I also only showered a handful of times. I ended up going into a state of psychosis a few days in where I stayed the rest of the month. I was convinced everyone was out to kill me. I thought I was apart of a big experiment run my the government and that everyone around the world was watching my every move on tv as a reality show. I saw demons and people that weren't there. I was so bad that I broke into stores thinking it wasn't a real store, I walked up to a gas station and punched the worker in his face cuz I thought he wanted to kill me. I walked up to a community watch guy and spit in his face. I did so many humiliating and insane things that the people I was with ended up stealing most of my things and left me stranded. I also experienced being kidnapped, and to this day I still don't know if that was real or not. I literally lost my mind. Once I came home, I went to jail where I got clean. I'm now 7 months clean, and it wasn't until maybe about 3 months ago i started to realize a lot of what I thought happened actually didn't because it didn't make sense. I was diagnosed with ptsd because of being in such terror for so long. It was the most terrified girl experience of my life.

  4. in my case i had my first psychosis triggered by drinking and not knowing what happened in the drunk night. this caused paranoia with me but i dont think its the main trigger. after a year i started smoking cannabis wich also triggered 2 psychosis. in my case schizoaffective disorder and addiction combined. its also a self medicating method, its like the chicken and the egg quote what comes first?
