Hey, Casey. Yes, it’s a horrible illness. Don’t give up hope, meds or no meds. I’ve tried to keep myself at the lowest doses possible in order to keep functioning. I have a doctor who listens to me when I tell her I’m not going to take high doses…I refuse and, yes, sometimes pay the price. Hang in there. Try meditation and cutting down on stress. It helps. Be good to yourself. You’ll make it!!!!!
