I'm a little conflicted. I have horrible experiences with medication for mental health, to the point where even thinking about taking medicine again makes me incredibly nervous. But at the same time, I know that when I bring up just /how/ mentally unstable I am to my therapist, she's going to want to medicate me. And I don't know what to do. On one hand I want to take the pills because I'm desperate at this point to get better. But at the same time, I don't want to be near psych medicine ever again. Does anyone else know how this feels or have any advice?

      I can relate to this, one of the ways I can get through it is by researching medications with my psych before going on them, knowing in detail what I'm taking helps me get over my worry! I usually start by asking my psych what they would recommend, asking others with similar diagnosis what they're on, what works for them, and what they would recommend and research what sounds good to you and then discuss it with your psych!

      This is about how I feel. I wanna get better. I wanna do better but I’m so scared of getting drugged up with medication again.
