If you really want help, talk to your doctor.

A lot of people I know, who keep stopping their medication every time they feel a little better, keep going through the "Revolving Door," in and out of the hospital forever, all because they feel stigmatized by their mental illness and psychiatric medication.

My doctor recently reduced my medication--I would not do this without my doctor's guidance--I've come too far in my recovery process to jeopardize it by fooling with my medication.

Wishing you good mental health.
