find no reason for that

It helps slow my thoughts down. I’'m so much better with slower thoughts and less paranoia. I can’t make a decent life with paranoia and I still have my problems but live a good life.

Meds are so much better than alternative for me and stick it out 3 months at least to get benefit. It takes a while and we are all different.

Without meds I wouldn’t be here. I’d be in my old life, hating life, trouble all the time. Never going back to that nightmare.

If you aren’t getting better or have found the limit to what that means for you after several medicine changes.

I guess you just have to accept a certain bit of life-suckage.

I think its better to be on medicine then to become a lost person.

I think that boring is good. At least for me. Then I know that I’m somewhat stable.

Ability to sleep, more or less clear thoughts and keeps away some delusions or hallucinations.

Not to go insane again and possibly mess your life again. I did quit my meda once and ruines my life and emotions for years

I know plenty borderline sz in real life, enougj crazy to talk delusions not enough crazy to get hospitalized
