It seems like there are tons of moms/women, these days, on some kind of medication. Most of the time for depression and/or anxiety (from what I've noticed).
I take 9 pills each day (which includes my daily vitamin suppliments). Would you like to know what kind of meds I take? Okay friends, I'm going out on a limb here...
Each day I take: A daily multi vit/min suppliment, 2,000mg of Vitamin D, A baby asprin, Pravastatin, Metformin (at least 1,000mg), Zoloft (only 50mg), and Adderall (twice/day). Yep, I'm dependant on DRUGS.
My personal feelings about medication:
1- We ALL need to suppliment with daily vitamin/minerals these days.
2- Vitamin D is vital to us women. I heard that it can actually reverse some causes of cancer.
3- Baby asprin can't hurt ya (unless you're alergic to asprin) and will help prevent our blood from clotting.
4- If you are depressed, anxious, bi-polar, or have any other form of mental disorder... don't be ashamed... get on something! If you are a mess mentally it will not only make YOU miserable, as well as everyone else around you. Call your doc right NOW and get a prescription. Being "on medication" does not mean you are "CRAZY" in the head. It means that there is a physical, chemical imbalance inside your brain that can be temporarily fixed with some "chemical" help. WITH that help, you'll be able to find the REAL you, all balanced out. Your physical/chemical ailment (that causes your "mental" reactionss) can be masked with meds. And you will feel SO grateful for modern technology which makes that possible! (It might take trying a few different meds before you find the one that works best for you, so don't give up.)
What are YOUR feelings about MEDS?
