Give Me My Med's!!

I hope no one takes offense to this picture, but I found it so funny and so true!  What would I do without my med's?  Actually I don't have to search to hard to know, I have gone without medication before and it seems to start off fine and dwindle into a hot mess. And I mean me crying, me being super irritable, me thinking no one loves me, me questioning why I am even here...etc... Real Hot Mess!!  I honestly am so thankful for medication.  It keeps me feeling "normal".  It keeps my mind from racing and my thoughts from going wacko.  I think that has to be one of the most important reasons I continue to take it every day.  My sanity!  Second reason...the sanity of my family!  It is funny I say this though, as when I have not taken my medication for a while, like weeks, and someone close to me mentions it I freak out and start going on and on about how I don't need them...when I really do!  I just want to be right and not admit they make me a better person!  Lord, our minds are a crazy place to reside sometimes.

I do other things to combat my illness too.  I love writing this blog. I love walking my dogs, shopping at thrift stores, getting coffee at a fun coffee shop.   These things all bring me some amount of peace, if only for a short while.  What else do you do to keep stable and keep feeling good?


  1. Shannon, my meds have helped me tremendously, too!

    I write, read, spend time with my kitties and husband, draw, do needlework, get out in nature--these all give me peace.

  2. That picture is great! I wouldn't even think of going without my AD, nor my estrogen! My kitties are also a big help to me, as is my boyfriend, mindful meditation, and writing.
