oh well then

I saw my psychiatrist this morning and told him I would like to discontinue all of my medications. Yeah, that went over like a turd in a punchbowl.

I have that same wish — to be medication-free. But I know it is not going to happen any time soon for either you or me.

Stay safe, stay away from YouTube and WebMD, and stay on your meds!

I know all too well how going off your meds can do. I just finished a five week stint in a psych unit for going off one of my meds. I know that I will probably never be medication free. It would be my dream though to never have them! Thinking of you!

Well you know what has happened to me when I've tried getting off my Abilify. Take it from me, not wise, my friend. Not wise.

Turd in a punchbowl? Eww. What are you talking about?

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I would love to read the book, I will get at that sometime soon. I'm reading secrete daughter right now. Hope stuff works out with your medication. Going off your meds is not a good idea it can cause problems, if your going to do it do it with doctor and slowly.

I have been taking meds for a long, long time. There were times where I just stopped taking them which would last about 6 months and then I would have a really severe bout of depression and go back on. Earlier this summer I had the worst one yet. I went to a new psychiatrist to start some medication and have seen a dramatic improvement. After having that depressive episode in June, I will NEVER stop taking meds again. It was so bad I don't think I could go through that again. I have accepted the fact that my body needs these meds. Maybe I'll have to take them the rest of my life, and maybe not. I stopped having that bias that meds make me weak. I am so thankful for these meds I'm taking and never want to go back to where I was.

Maybe a med change is in order?
