The meds have taken hold,
Taking them every single night,
Just like the doctor told.
Thoughts have gotten slowed,
Memory is returning and my life
Has gotten better, it shows.
My smiles are actually real,
The pills I swallow help me,
But how long until this deal
Is broken and I’m back like before?
Is this a new chapter, a better start,
A new path in my life, a new door?
The pain and guilt are locked away,
So I can go forward and apologize
And make amends for the other days.
I’m close to the old me I was before,
I want this to get even better,
So I can realize what this life of mine is for.
(medicated, an anti-poem)
I take 22 pills; if I die,
my blood will be on your hands.
Help me taper off, you ■■■■■■■,
Or I will quit and to hell with all meds and doctors.
I am serious. Lol
@Om_Sadasiva I would get a different psychiatrist. I used to be on 6 different medications per day and they wanted to give me even more…I changed doctor and today I’m just on two.
Yes, I will find another psychiatrist for a second opinion. Thanks
@Om_Sadasiva did you ever ask about clozapine from your pdoc or did he mention it? Mine offered it right away
No, I told him I am afraid of it and he didn’t mention it. I mentioned it first, telling him that I am treatment resistant
Of drooling, bed wetting, blood tests, everything
A lot of people swear by it. You don’t know unless you try
@Lostnconfused I thought that was a beautiful poem
I’d hate to start wetting other people’s beds if I visit somewhere
I’d take a poll of the people that take it and see what side effects they have
@Lostnconfused can I post your poem anonymously on the family forum. I think it’s great and uplifting
@Lostnconfused I like your poem a lot. Reminds me of the thoughts goin thru my head when I first started dealing with my sz…
Yes that is fine with me.
I appreciate all the good comments. Thank you all
