Medications: Hear No Evil

I’m fine, but I’m bipolar. I’m on seven medications, and I take medication three times a day. This constantly puts me in touch with the illness I have. I’m never quite allowed to be free of that for a day. It’s like being a diabetic.” ―Carrie Fisher

Hear No Evil: NO MEDS, now what???

WE DON’T WANT to take them, but without them, we can’t function. The symptoms we experience from our diagnosis makes it hard to function.  Sometimes the meds stop working, sometimes they quit altogether, but we don’t give up. We try to find something, anything that will give us some relief.
