Yep this sums it up

Posted on

I’ve been very vocal in my love hate relationship with medication. I feel I’m still over medicated as I can’t cry but I also feel it’s helped me have better days. I do wish I could go med free but I think those days are over.

    I’ve been feeling similarly lately… feeling so “foggy” that I wonder if it’s best to cut back, but then realizing that at least I don’t feel like I’m constantly about to go off the deep end, so maybe I should just stick with this for now. It’s a hard call. :/ xx

      I agree i always felt like I was imploding is nice to not feel that way but at what cost?

        I’m not sure. I’m thinking someday, after I’ve been in therapy and learned more coping skills, I can try to reduce meds… but not yet, because I still don’t have the tools to deal with the withdrawal and possible crisis afterwards.

    I feel the same way. If I’m doing poorly on medication it’s like , why do I take this if I feel bad anyway. If I’m doing well I feel like I can do without it. The truth is just how you said it , the highs and lows are still there , they are just less high and less low.

    I have seen that same image, it fits me quite well too.

    I talked with my psychiatrist about this. I think the only reason I cared about the pills is other people’s thoughts or feelings about the pills. When in reality the pills help me feel better! And I cannot feel the way I feel without the pills. Her goal is for me not to be on the pills forever. For right now I need the pills, and they make me stable like you said.
