you're preaching to the choir , it worked for me but whats sad is the people who really should be on meds never will get them .I'm sure you have notice here on EP the many forms of mental illness and if we can see it online imagine whats going in these people's homes
its hard to get a balanced evaluation as far how medicine can be a good thing most of what we hear is the bad consequences . and people take that as the gospel truth . For years I didnt want the stigma of being on medication and I wasted a good portion of my life wandering around without cause or reason finally I got tired of it and sought help from a psych and now my life is fine . I'm horny all the time but its a side affect I can live with .
Of course. Mental illness is a disease that needs treating like any other illness. To refuse medication would be damn foolish.
i did.. for many years.. nothing wrong with it if you need it, if it helps.. i tried many medications but stopped them all simply because they made no difference..
I used to flat out refuse something like that, thinking that it would somehow make me less clear or not think like myself, but I think that if I were offered a presc<x>ription now, I would take it in order to feel better.
Take antidepressants every day.
I have had a traumatic time and I'm on anti-anxiety medication. Sometimes, you need pills, if only for a short while. When I have dealt with this, no doubt, I'll reduce and then, come off them.
No they can shove their soul destroying medication.
no modern day medicine is the leading cause of death in america and there is no definition to mental illness according to the CDC being creative is considered a mental illness
Excellent response. You just won a brand new 5 slice toaster.
give it to charity
Depends on the mental illness and the medication.
i wish i'd done it 35 years ago
I need to be on antidepressants and not because I am sad, but because I just dont care about alot of **** I should. I am avoiding the medication for as long as you can. So far I am okay.
if it helped :D yes. lately my dementia has been very fruit pants.
I've been on about a dozen different antidepressants, which don't work (for me). <br />
I don't think I'd go on any head meds unless I was psychotic.
No, but that's probably bad advice.
No. I may be deranged but I'm not crazy.
It depends on the person and how they handle their illness.
Yes.........if I had a mental illness.
