hey so I've been in biblical counseling since I was twelve but I've been hospitalized alot for high blood sugars and if it happens again I probably won't survive. my parents are now insisting that I go to an actual therapist that can prescribe pills for anxiety and depression so I have an appointment for the first week of June. but I really don't want to take yet another medication. thoughts?

      It's hard to accept adding another medication sometimes. But if it can make you feel better then it will be well worth it.

      You have to do what saves your life. It can be scary, but as someone who takes 8 different kinds of pills everyday, I certainly feel a lot better when I take all my medication

      Re meds: it takes time to accept you need meds but it’s a helpful reminder that it doesn’t have to be forever. U need them now to stabilize/restore equilibrium. Once u achieve that balance, u can discuss tapering off then with ur dr:)
