    Need 'em. Can't Afford 'em.

    I need to be on meds to 'fix' my hormonal problems, to 'force' my period to be regular... I need to be on meds for my dysthymia, and I'm not... God, do I wish I could afford this stuff...

    Here We Go Again...

    My Mother Was Right

    I have little black hole eating away at me and it's getting bigger, swallowing me up and making me sad and lonely. I took meds for years and the little guy shrunk. I thought he'd shriveled up entirely but his seed was still there and now he's growing again.

    I Dont Take Them

    My doctor back home where I'm from put me on ciprilex and effexor but I never took them. I've attempted suicide too many times and don't allow any tablets in my home. It's just not worth the risk of having them around - kind of a catch 22 situation :(
