Medication

I hate having to take medicine but I know it helps. The key is to find the right cocktail. I have to remind myself the medical profession is a science not a black and white thing. But still I hate not being able to be “cured”.

    Awh my grandma is bipolar and I deal with depression. Not sure what my grandma takes. I’m on an anti depressant and I seek counselling often. I wish you well.

    It’s definitely frustrating to have to take meds period and especially trying to find the right combination. Too bad each illness doesn’t react to all drugs the same way. 😐

    My husband who is Bipolar often tells me he feels the same way and they still haven’t found the right combo for him as yet. Hang in there, it’s beneficial for your own mental health.

    I know your struggle. It’s hard enough to remember my meds somedays, let alone live without the vivid colors they prohibit. But living at reduced capacity is better than giving up. Keep looking for your cocktail: it’s out there somewhere.

        I hear ya… I hope I get a better combination at my next appointment. They want me on seroquel again, but I cannot do it. That med affected me in the worst way, but “a lower dose would still be ok”…. I think she is ready to hear a lot of NOs coming from my mouth. I have been at this too long, I know most of the meds…. I am sure a lot of us do. There has to be a magical one for me. I have hope.

    20 years past official diagnosis and I still have to jump on the med wheel once in a while.
    Do you ever have a “normal” day and are convinced something must be wrong? Imagine if we were cured and had nothing but “normal” days. Would we even know it? Would we suddenly be bored with life? Strange stuff.

      That is exactly it what is normal? I don’t know what that looks like and I get paranoid if I get close to it.
