What life with medication is really like

I found this BuzzFeed graphic & thought it was so accurate. It was used in an article about ADHD but I feel it’s true for any mental disorder.

It took me a while to realize there’s nothing wrong with me by taking medication. I’m not weak. I didn’t “give up.” This isn’t an “easy out.” There is a chemical deficiency in my brain. Meds bring me up to normal. I don’t have an advantage over others. It levels the playing field, so to speak.

I wouldn’t want to go back to life without it. It’s too chaotic & dangerous. It scares me to think of how long I was trying to live without help. My advice? Get help. Please.
