Does anyone else struggle with taking meds? like I am fully aware that I need these medications every day to keep my episodes manageable, however it is so extremely hard to actually take them. I don't want to take them, but I know I need them so I try but it's hard to force myself to take them everyday

      It finally clicked in me when my 11 year old daughter, who had been staying with my sister while I was relocating, told me that she wanted to come back home but only if I stayed on my meds. I've been taking them faithfully ever since. She's 38 now and we're still happy with each other so I'm glad I've kept it up. I look at it this way, for some people to be successful, they need to get away from drugs or alcohol. For me to be successful, I need to stay on drugs 😂

      I don't even stigmatize my medication I just haven't been taking it and idk why I have no urge to take it

      Yes I absolutely struggling with this. I feel like because I need to take medication to function I'm "pathetic" or "weak". I am still working on finding a way to cope with this. It usually ends up being 50/50 on if I will take my medicine. My therapist says to tell myself I am normal and I am healthy it's just hard to tell myself that.

        @KoiGarden yes that's exactly it, I don't want to need the meds but I do and I can't change that
