For the past two weeks, I have been doing pretty well. Granted, I had my medicine kicked up a bit, only like 2mg, but it was enough to really make an impact. I hadn’t been doing well with the stress of moving up to “real” college, and it took it’s toll.
I have realized over the past few years; there is nothing wrong with medication. It can be really hard sometimes knowing you take it, you feel like it’s a crutch, or maybe you just feel sucky taking it. Trust me, I’ve been there. Some people just need that extra push in their day to day life. All the therapy in the world couldn’t help 13 year old me when I really hit my suicidal, self-mutilation phase. I needed that push to help me out of the dirt and at least get walking toward my goal of getting better.
