Today, March 22nd, is the 82nd Birthday of Ann Shulgin, wife and intrepid fellow explorer of Alexander “Sasha” Shulgin. Co-author of Pihkal and Tihkal.
For those that don’t know yet- Sasha has Dementia. His healthcare, currently about $350 a day, is a severe burden on this beautiful family. (something I blogged on in more detail recently here .
So today would be a wonderful day to donate to the Shulgins to help with Sashas care, and give Ann a little birthday present at the same time.
So if your life has been touched by MDMA or MDA (more commonly called “ecstasy”, by the magical substances of the 2C family (2c-b, 2c-e, 2c-i) , by any of the other phenethylamines or the relml of the tryptamine family… please consider making a donation. Of any amount- as mom always said- it’s the thought that counts and sometimes just knowing that there are so many people out there care, whose lives you’ve touched, can mean more then the financial help they give.
And as some of you surely know- MDMA is now being researched, with astounding sucess, in treating PTSD. With everyone from Oprah to the military newspaper and multiple military based websites having written extensively on the sucess of this treatment. So Sasha’s redisocery of MDMA- and his and Anns decision not to unleash it on recreational drug world- but to give it to a number of psychiatrists, is finally bearing fruit. Offering the first real, lasting hope for those with PTSD – from rape victims to our veterans who we asked so (too?) much of.
May I also suggest you can also buy their books. Whether for yourself. For a friend. Or to donate to your local library. (As a note- their publisher is their family, Anns daughter)
