I have been on a batch of prescription medicine to manage my bipolar disorder since I was hospitalized for depression a few years ago. And I was on medication before that, since 2000-2001 when I had a manic episode. So it's been about 16 years since I felt normal. That's a long time.
I will ask my psych (again) next time I see him if I can be taken off some of my meds. I just feel they have me in a controlled down mood, and also one in which I can fully feel things. I have days where I just want to sleep all day.
Thanks for this topic. I have wanted to write about how I feel down and over-medicated for years.
