I'm not about to slap you for anything little miss turtle :) Only time will tell whether it is a good move or bad move - and I know you will adjust according to any outcomes.
Not that I want to question, but is that really good?
I stopped taking my meds last night. (None since yesterday morning). I don't know why. I have a Dr. appt. on Thursday. I haven't done my bloodwork for my Dr. appt. and I can't now because I've missed doses. I don't care. That is unlike me. I don't feel hypomanic. I am awake very early - 3 hours early. (But I was camping and waking up early for the last 2 days AND I took long naps yesterday, so ???) I don't give a darn about the meds right now. I expect to have terrible reaction to being off meds - cold turkey seroquel is bad bad bad bad things. And I expect to go back on. But this morning I can't be bothered to take them.
This is the thing I don't understand, and I guess I never will without having experienced it. You KNOW the consequences of not taking your meds, yet the simple act of swallowing some pills is difficult. I have high blood pressure. The consequences of my skipping meds every so often is not near as serious, yet I religiously take them. At worst, I may miss a dose once a month.
I am asking this, not so much to chastise, but to understand my wife's situation with her treatment. What is so hard about
taking 5 seconds to pop some pills when you know the consequences of not taking them?
