    Endless Fog

    These non sequitur thoughts and this disjointed mind are the result of medication. How can you take a mind and change it with chemicals and expect to be normal. Can you make a naturally normal person out of an abnormal one? I used to change my mental states with illegal drugs and...

    I'm kind of sick of all these pills,

    to be honest. Doctors have been force feeding me pills since I was 15 years old. I have to keep a running list of all the psychiatric medications I've taken over the years, and I'm well over thirty at this point. Apparently there are almost 110 different ones at this point. I...

    Sometimes being sick is tiring enough

    but what are we supposed to do? Being sick is having many tablets and being sick means being so sick. What am I supposed to do? I keep on helping a lot of people but I dont know how to help myself. But don't you ever give up, there is always a rainbow after the rain.
