    I have PTSD from the war.

    I take a handful of pills every morning, and a few more in the afternoon in order to function. In the past I'd go off of them from time to time - try to tell myself it was ok. It never was. That's the scary thing, though. You can't objectively gauge your own mental health...

    Yeah, i take some different concoctions of pills

    for different stuff (i've got a lot going on up here *points to head) But i believe that we all have a little bit of craziness, or strangeness in us, but you know what? Embrace your inner psycho, because 'we're all mad here' ;)

    For with God nothing will be impossible (Luke

    1:37). There yet is hope for you in Christ. Whatever your problem may be, and however seemingly grave the situation miay be, it is nothing to the Age of Ages. There yet is hope for you in Christ. All other things are void of actual help. Some may help in soothing the problem...

    I Think Its Best...

    Yeah I take psych meds. Several different ones if point of fact. I went for 37 years without any help. All that got me was a self-inflicted room at the mental health ward. I have known about my illness since I was 16. Now I know that it started many years earlier. I thought...

    Why? Because i'm a psychotic *****,

    who thinks too much, and occasionally gets mad at nothing, and everything. Ad my solutions to my problems are always the worst, and they only lead me deeper down the rabbit hole of anger, and sadness, not to mention the dash of anxiety, and overdose of insomnia. But that doesn't...

    Need 'em

    Yep.  Lithium, Serequil, and Propanalol.  Yes, I know the last one is more of a heart/blood pressure medication, but it also helps folks with PTSD a lot. The Serequil may need to be tweaked again, but that's okay.  I'm relieved there are meds to help me stay balanced.
