“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???
NO MEDS, now what??? I hear this all the time, people run out of meds, these little evil pills that we must have to try and feel better. For many, medications are a necessary evil. 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.
In June, I lost coverage for my bipolar medication, the medication I need to stay balanced. Meds that considerably silence the thoughts of suicidal ideation, and other distorted thinking. Meditations that I’ve taken for years. It did not take long before I could feel the symptoms.
