    If I Have a Headache,it's For a Reason.

    I think I avoid medicine of any type because I see so many people around me misuse it.And I figure if it hurts,it hurts for a reason.My body is trying to say something.And if I catch something I really rather just let my body fight it off.Life shouldn't be so fast that we can't...

    I actually hate taking medication,

    and as an epileptic, this is the only way for me to live a good and controlled life. I also take birth control, but have stopped that recently as me and my boyfriend are trying to conceive. I wish I didn't have to take a pill every night for epilepsy. But it's what I have to do

    Just Dont Take It.

    Cold, flu, soar throat, or even a tummy ache; I believe that none of these are a reason to take medication. The only time I do take medication is when I have something real serious that needs to be treated quickly. (Like strep throat.) No one I know seems to understand why I don...

    I'm Getting Weary Of It

    I had this crazy thought that what if I just stopped all my psych meds and just took vitamins and herbal supplements like St Johns Wort for depression and Kava Kava for anxiety. Why am I thinking like a scientologist? It may be OK for Tom Cruise and Kate but it's not for me. I...

    No Choice Rt Now!

    I've always hated taking meds, but I have no choice! The pains are too much to handle at times and I also need to sleep. I may be strong, just not that strong. I have my weak moments and until there is cure for all my aches and pains; I guess I'll stay on them, yuk!

    Strong Body

    I feel like people nowadays use medicine for the tiniest things. As a little child, when I got sick, my mom only gave me medicine at bedtime. During the day, she would give me crackers and 7up, and tell me to rest. As a grownup, when I get sick, I hardly ever need to take...
