    Hate My Chemo Capsules

    I hate having to take chemotherapy capsules each day. For although they cut back the bloods, they will I am sure be the death of me. You look up the risks and it scares the living daylights out of me. Oh well you have to laugh................

    It Just Makes Things Worse

    I take antidepressants to help with my depression because when I get depressed, I get suicidal. The problem is that the medicines that I've tried don't work and the one I'm taking now just makes everything worse. What happens is that when I get depressed, I usually get hostile...

    Very Low Tolerance.

    When something says "May cause drowsiness" that will knock me out for a few hours and when I wake I'm groggy. I don't like how I feel when on medication.

    I refuse to take any medicine at all,

    unless it's prescribed to me by a doctor. Nothing for headaches, colds, allergies, etc.

    I Took Medicine All My Life, Then Suddenly Stopped And Can't Go Back.

    I was born with a rare endocrine disorder and started taking various medicines in the form of pills and daily injections when I was only six months old. This was never a problem for me, as I grew up with it and saw it as a natural part of my life. Then one day, when I was 18, I...

    Handfuls Morning And Night

    Epilepsy is the cause. Every morning I wake up and take a palm full of pills that count to be 5. Every night I take 9 pills. I've been doing this routine since I was 3 years old, but with different pills and dosages. It is still as annoying as ever.

    Severe Anxiety When Taking My Pills For Rheumatoid Arthritis
