    26 Pills A Day

    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!

    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...

    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

    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...

    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...

    If you have nothing else good to say, don't say it. We are grown up now and should know what's right from wrong. Spreading hate is wrong.
