I've been diagnosed with manic depression, anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder, but I have never taken any meds for any of it. I always believed I could get by without medication, but the older I get, the worse my symptoms are becoming, and I am actually considering trying the meds.

Update:<br />
I have decided that I cannot surround myself with negativity and expect to be ok. I have deleted all negative experiences from my profile (though the stories still remain) and I am only allowing myself to speak kindly to my inner self, and rise above the negative aspects of my past. It is working already. I feel better than I ever have because now I love myself. I hope that all of you who feel the way I used to feel find your happiness as well.<br />

^ Pot used to work for me, but now it just makes me paranoid and adds to my anxiety.
