Shamed for Taking Bipolar Disorder Medication

The answer is yes, yes and yes. And the answer is also no  — it did not make my bipolar disorder stable enough to live my life functionally.

Wanna know the only thing that has allowed me to continue living my life?

Medication. And yes, I do absolutely everything else therapeutic for myself as well. And I still often have meltdowns, med adjustments, moments of extreme hopelessness… but you know what — I can live. And many days I can feel deep gratitude for my life as well.

After a friend of mine died by suicide in college, I know what it’s like to survive that kind of tragedy.
