Many times throughout my journey, I’ve had medication issues.
I have not always responded well to treatment with certain meds. And, when my psychiatrist and I found the right meds for me, I needed to up their strength.
Looking back, it would have been nice if I had developed better coping techniques too (and, not needed such high dosages of the medication), but I know things worked out the way they did for a reason.
Today, I continue to be on high dosages of all my meds. And, I still have a lot of symptoms that I continually deal with.
I have always taken my meds as prescribed. Even with the difficult side effects.
Without the right meds for me, I’d likely find myself in a very painful (and possibly dangerous) situation.
This is why everyone needs access to good medication.
