I had always been non-compliant with treatment. Years and years passed before I started taking it seriously. Then, as if a switch was flipped, I started taking my meds and becoming involved with my treatment. Why? I’m not sure.
Maybe it was getting older. Maybe one day, on meds, I gained enough insight to continue working on recovery? I don’t know for sure.
One thing I know, the reason I finally went from regularly taking my meds to religiously taking them was my gun incident that resulted in my four month stay in the hospital. Ever since then I’ve really worked hard at staying stable.
What did it for you? Why are you taking your treatment and medication seriously?
