I had such a hard time finding the right combo of meds before, and I dread the thought of going back on that carousel. But I also don't know when this reality I'm in isn't okay anymore. How do you guys figure out what is really you vs the illness vs the medication? I'm so insanely tired of how much work it takes to exist. And if it wasn't for my kids, I'd have opted out of that existence.
I got completely off all meds two months ago. Birth control, depression, and anxiety meds. I feel wonderful about not having hormones in my body, and the depression seems to have been connected to that. But overall, life has been strange. I feel uncomfortable in my own skin, I'm irritable and stressed 24/7, and I genuinely would rather be in a dark room by myself than walking around the world with other people.
