One of the struggles I’ve had being Independent.
Whenever I get it, I get it.
Everyone enjoys me and I can manage life.
I know medication is not for everyone.
But for me, it’s a life saver.
It means I can function and be some kind of normal.
It also means that it comes with struggles.
I want to eat all the time, although if I keep busy, it diminishes.
The side effects outweigh what I am without it.
It’s been a rollercoaster of thoughts about it for the better part of nearly four years.
But many things that I believe are caused simply aren’t true.
Myth after myth, I’ve busted them.
I get it. Medication is a necessity for managing all my challenges, I don’t get to pick and choose what I don’t want to take care of.
Because I am the person who everyone knows best, not someone who isn’t their best.
I thankfully understand and hopefully, can strive for continual adherence so I never have to go down that rocky road again
But if I do I must learn that it’s okay and I must regain the course sooner than I have in the past.
