To be honest, it wasnt a hard decision to start taking AD at 14- it was either that, or be totally ruined and probably be institutionalised. the meds have given me a quality of life that i never thought would be possible, looking back at me as a 14yr old. i was totally crippled by my panic, i was completely trapped by my agoraphobia. i was so relieved when i got a diagnosis, and was told that meds would improve my situation- and they did, even though the side effects suck. ive been medicated for exactly half my entire life. that makes me sad, but at the same time, im grateful for meds that work. i just wish people would keep their uninformed, narrow minded comments to themselves- its hurtful.
