I’m scared to try my new medications weather it be thyroid, anti anxiety/depression or even iron supplements for my anemia bec I’m scared that if I do consistently and they don’t work (and I’m still just as lifeless and low energy as now) then I’m stuck

      I can relate to this. Taking medication is traumatic for me for a lot of reasons. I have had doctors proscribe me meds that don’t interact well, or that don’t work. I have been working with my therapist on this a lot. I’m sorry you’re going through this but it’s important to try.

      The likelihood that every med you try for these things won’t work is really really really really low. Doctors are trained to help you with medication, they’ve studied it for years, it’s their professional practice, they will be able to help you. It can be frustrating trying to find the right ones. But, if you take it seriously, do what they tell you, are honest with them, and really try and work on it, I promise you can be treated with meds.
