I have been on 7 different psy med over the the past 17 years. I have also gone off my meds 3 times during the past 15 years – I was doing well and figured I didn’t really need them. All three times I tanked- self harm – suicide attempts, psy wards the whole nine yards. I can attest that the meds do work for me. I also have fibromyalgia, and scleroderma morphia and and in pain daily. Yesterday, my primary care physician suggested that I go off all my meds and see how I feel. Well that has sent me in a tail spin – just the thought of it – it is like someone discounting everything you feel – he called me a professional patient… So I really don’t suffer from a mood disorder, fibromyalgia, scleroderma, and the 49 surgeries and procedures I have had in the past 10 years have all be for nothing – self created….I am crazy and might as well just jump off the nearest bridge since I am no use to society. I called my mental health practitioner, and psychotherapist who both told me to “breath” and they would be calling my medical doctor. I can feel the bottom beginning to drop out already. Psy meds do work for some people. I have proof – 3 different time… On another note, where would someone suggest going if you wanted to get off your meds that would provide around the clock care and the proper diet, counseling, supplements. etc?
