I'm Proud of Myself



This is a huge accomplishment for me! I have not only taken my meds for the past 6 weeks but for the last 6 Mondays I have increased the dosages as instructed.

I am so proud of myself!

I have taken all my meds and dosages on times. I didn't skip any.

I have slept a lot and too darn much. My stomach has been nauseated. To the point I almost vomited. I can't taste my food anymore and I have no appetite. But its alright.

Cause I'm not suicidal. I'm not depressed. I'm not full of anxiety. My thoughts aren't racing. I'm not in mania. In other words I'm not a mess lol.

And you know what?

Friday I've got to go back to the doctor cause she wants to up my Celexa and Topamax but guess what? Its ok.

I'm so proud of myself. I'm determined that somehow someway I'm going to find away to stay on my meds. Its time to grow up....

That is actually something to be really proud of, you know. Most people who are prescribed medicine of any sort end up discontinuing, and it's even worse for psych meds. It's a sign that they don't really care about themselves enough to continue, really, and that's usually part of the original problem.

And, of course, as star says, you stuck with it long enough to actually feel them help you.

Thank you both!

I can see the changes in myself and the people closest to me have seen marked improvements regarding my moods etcs.

This time they had an intervention with me lol. But I'm glad that they did.

I care enough about myself this time to stay on my meds.

I hit rock bottom lol.
