@whitefuzzy:  There are pluses and minuses to the meds I take.

 

Pluses:

-I don’t mood swing as often, no more angry outbursts or violence, getting so upset that my body temperature would get feverish and my heart would race. Because of the mood swings I used to self-harm a bit too.
-A lot less crying…this used to happen at least a few times a week for hours
-No more insomnia
-Less anxiety and less PTSD nightmares
-Sex drive is less…it used to be a big problem

Minuses:

-Gained a lot of weight. Don’t feel all that great…went from a size xs/s to a m/l
-Sex drive is less. I miss being more spunky sometimes lol
-Sometimes I feel like a robot because of the lack of highs and lows I used to experience…but I’m not unhappy either.
-The reliance I have on my psychiatrist and the pharmacies…sometimes I feel like I’m at their mercy.

FI went through this. He refuses to be on medication anymore because it’s such a pain in the ass. Whatever he was on basically just made him a robot, so he had to stop because going through medication changes and whatnot is really hard on you. He doesn’t like being depressed, but he said he’d rather be depressed and be able to have good times than have no emotions at all.
