Thank you for your post Nanners. You made a lot of sense about saying if you didn't take medicine for your bowel disease, you would be very sick. I guess looking at it in that same way, makes a whole lot of sense...you opened my eyes, and I thank you for your opinion.
Nanners is wise and right on. My psychiatrist once explained it to me when I was upset that I still had anxiety even thow I was on meds................
It you are in pain and we medicate you with pain medication you feel better, it may not be 100% better but you do feel better. The same with medication for the mental health disorders for which medication is used. Without it you may crash and with the medication you are able to function. Is it not better to have some quality of life?
It is truly you decision but I never feel weak or guilty for taking my medications. :)
