Do Psych Meds Help or Hurt You?

Do your psych meds help or hurt you? Do you live better with or without? Has your life improved or gotten worse since you started taking them? I was watching a YouTube video by an influencer I really like. And she was saying how she quit her meds cold turkey and talked about how great she feels without them. And how they were probs unnecessary. Which for her is excellent. She was not bashing meds by any means but that was just her experience and other ppl commented agreeing with her. Which is totally cool, no judgment. Meds are for sure not for everyone. And if you don't have to take them- more power to you. I had the opposite feeling as the others. I was grossly overmedicated (terrible psychiatrists) for a long time and was a zombie and my marriage sucked and I got into a bad car accident. Then went thru the process of finding the right cocktail. And am off over half of the meds. Which is still quite a few. But after finding the right mix, I feel the best I've ever felt. My life has drastically changed since being on meds. And things aren't perfect, of course- some things suck and are hard. But I feel more alert, rational, and smarter (well having more access to my thoughts and processing faster) and also I don't sleep 16 hrs a day. I actually enjoy most days. And I'm alive and finally functioning at my best. Sobriety helps a lot too. Admittedly, there were many very bad years of crippling side effects and untreated symptoms. But after finding the right meds, everything is great. No noticeable side effects that I can remember at this moment. I mostly am happy with my life as a whole. Again, not perfect but great. How do you feel about your meds?
