How very helpful (NOT)

Having some seriously bad side effects from new medication. Talked to my doctor, he said I need to "stick it out as I'm running out of other options". Gotta love mental health problems...

The never ending story!

They ask, “Why are you tired all the time?” 
Me: “medication side effects. It’s not my fault ok! I didn’t ask for this! I don’t want the doctor, the meds or my mental illness!"

How very exhausting!

Got medication because my anxiety prevents me sleeping. Won't take the pills because I'm too anxious and paranoid about side effects. I hate my anxiety

Odense, Syddanmark, DK

Such an isolating feeling.

I'm cranky on my meds (side effects) and can't drink on them because there will be more side effects if I do. Because of this I feel like my social life is crumbling before my eyes...

Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't.

I am supposed to start a medication. But I’m terrified to take it because of the potentially life threatening side effects it can have on myself and my son since I am still breastfeeding.
