As much as my meds help me, it’s a battle to remember to do all the things I need to do to be able to take them: sign up for health insurance, pay my bill, make a doctor appointment, GO to that appointment, get my prescription, find a pharmacy that can fill it, remember to pick it up before it closes, remember to bring my ID so they’ll let me…
It’s easy for me to question if my meds are really needed when I skip a step.
This was what I did when I forgot my insurance payment. I stopped taking my medication for 2 weeks, and then tried to figure out how to live on my own.
Please share this — the stigma is real and no one should feel ashamed about seeking the treatment they need, even if their disorder is invisible or mental.
Mental health is as important as physical, and it’s high time that we recognize this.
*NOTE- I don’t recommend stopping taking medication without consulting a doctor. To resolve problems, a medical professional should always be available. Talk to your pharmacist if you are unable to reach your doctor.
