I'm very grateful for my medication

My medication has helped me so much. I no longer have the mood swings like I used to have and I can sleep. I also am not as anxious as before. Post below if your medication has helped you.

Glad your meds have helped you, so have mine! I've been on the same 2 meds for 20 years - have been fortunate that I haven't had to keep switching them because they became ineffective. Of course, I still have my moments where I struggle with depression, but never to the extent where it's been debilitating or sent me to the hospital, etc. Sometimes I've had to increase one of my meds temporarily, but overall, I'm very happy with the meds I've been on! I realize that meds alone aren't going to eliminate all depression all the time, but I have to do my part as well.

Forgiveness is letting go of the hope that the past could have been any different --Unknown

Better living through pharmaceuticals, I always say

On the serious side, I will never skip a dose of my meds. I never want to go down that black hole again.

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
