My inner Goddess thought she could.............

I sit here miserable, angry and frustrated. emoticon
And it's my own fault.
I was put on antidepressants (I should say anti-anger because I don't get depressed, I bet bitchy) that I fondly call my happy pills.
I normally add them to my weekly pill holders with all my wonderful Herbalife pills.
For some reason I forgot to add them last week and rather than adding them, I (for about the 100th time) tried to do without them. I just don't like being dependant on drugs.
My wonderful sister always yells at me when I do this and says "If you were diabetic or had high blood pressure you wouldn't hesitate taking your meds" and she's right but I always think I can over come what I consider a mental issue rather than a chemical imbalance.
And once again a week later I can't even stand myself.
I already snapped at a fellow Sparker for them voicing their opinion on their own page. An opinion that I am completely opposed to but on medication I would have just passed it by and chalked it up to a difference of how we look at the universe I feel terrible and need to apologize or take the cowards way out and just delete me comment. emoticon I think I will take the adult route and apologize.
Tonight the election will finally be decided so 99% of my anger and frustration will be gone but I better get my pills in me before I start hearing all the bitching or whining from the losing side (I hope that's not me emoticon
Honestly at this point I don't care who wins.
My focus is on what I can control and that is loving myself, my family, firends and fellow sparkers. AND taking my pills!!!

    Being on medications is not fun. if you really hate them. maybe talk to a doctor and nutritionist to see if there are other ways you can get some medicine, but get them from more natural products. or maybeeven a combination of medication and natural treatments to get the best result.

    Yayyyy you!!! I love your last two sentences emoticon

I've been on antidepressents for YEARS. Tried to go off them once, with the help of a doctor but the anxiety got overwhelming which lead to depression and on and on.

The fact medication helps you = chemical imbalance.

THe other thing to remember is, if you decide to go off your meds you need to do it gradually. Just stopping them can cause bad things to happen (flu like symptoms, severe depression, etc).
