Don't be like me: stay on your medication.
In the throes of a downward spiral, yesterday I made the rash decision to not take my meds, because what good were they doing me anyway? If I'm this far down the drain they're obviously not doing s%^&, so why bother filling my body with all these chemicals?
Five phone reminders and eighteen hours of nausea, headaches, dizziness, and foggy brain later, I took my next dose. That was an hour and a half ago and I already feel physically better. And, as a friend pointed out, sometimes it's better the devil you know than the devil you don't. We don't know how badly off we'd be without them.
While I still feel like my life is falling to pieces around me, at least my body doesn't hate me (so much) any more. So, keep taking those meds even when you feel down. If nothing else, you might as well not feel down physically and mentally both.
