Let’s talk medication

Hello lovelies!

I want to talk to you about medication – a topic many people have varied opinions on. Some people believe it’s over-prescribed, some believe it’s unnecessary, and some believe it has more negative impacts than positive. On the other hand, some claim it to be life-changing.

I’m the latter.

In fact, I’d go as far to say it can be life-SAVING. Now listen, I’m not claiming medication to be a magical cure to mental illness. That’s not, and never should be, how it works. You have to constantly work on yourself either through therapy, self-help, or talking to family and friends when you’re feeling low – whatever works for you. You should never just rely on medication, and doing so won’t push you as far as you can be in recovery. However, that’s not to say medication isn’t a huge stepping stone to getting there.

Medication is what gave me the motivation to get out of bed in the morning and work on myself. Without my meds, I am way too anxious, irritable, confused, foggy and plain miserable to work on bettering myself. I’m not saying this will be the same for everyone, but that’s my point… EVERYONE’S DIFFERENT! Meds certainly don’t work for everyone, but that’s not to say they’re not extremely important in aiding some people’s recovery.

What I’m trying to say is: taking medication is nothing to be ashamed of. People take medication for diabetes, so what’s wrong with taking it for depression, anxiety etc? Never let anybody make you feel bad about doing what’s best for you.

At the end of the day, you and your doctor know what’s best for you – not some stranger on the internet.

Lots of love,

Soph. xx
