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?
