Pill: [skull and bones]
Title: Psych Meds ‘a Necessary Evil’.
Psych Meds: ‘a necessary evil’ or a magic pill?
The answer to this question comes down to the individual. My recovery started with a slue of medications being thrown at me. The first year of “getting professional help” felt more like I was a pincushion or guinea pig.
Over the years, I like most, have gotten to a point where I wanted to give up on meds. For me, it was not due to the side-effects, it was the cost. I know what I’m like without medication. I know how my reality gets twisted to a point where my family suffers. After a period of being off meds for 2 years (my wife calls that time “two nightmare years on earth.”) we agreed that I need to stay compliant. Well, it was more like “if you don’t take your meds, I’m fleeing.”
