Today I saw a post on facebook by my cousins husband it had a picture of trees and said “this is an anti-depressant” and next to a picture of medication “this is Sh*t”- it really got under my skin. I could hear how he would say it and I just thought- how little do you know?! I don’t want to me on several medications a day! I go outside and do have activities! But sometimes people need help in the forms of medications- I went off my meds for a while (see my Medication- is it for me? page) and it did not go well.
A message for those reading this- do not let narrow minded people who do not know anything about what they are talking about make you feel like a lesser person for being on medication! A big cause of bi-polar and depression and similar issues is a chemical imbalance and sometimes it takes other chemicals to help balance it out.
