Right now I’ve been dealing with some long term headaches. Not sure if medication related.
And I do take a number of medications most importantly for high blood pressure and bipolar disorder.
I do wonder on mood stabilizers how they affect me. I am still not nearly reading as much as I did three years ago. I don’t seem to have as much ability to focus for as long. Although I am doing better with my current medications than I was doing with lithium.
And we have become a culture of medications for good and bad.
I hope I don’t end up in the hospital again for mental illness. But, I do understand why many people with bipolar do stop taking their medications. You can wonder what you are missing.
And it is remarkable how many drugs we have for everything. Although I often wonder what we could take with less side effects.
And I hope I find a better cocktail soon. I don’t think a couple of the new drugs are working for me. I’ve been exhausted since I added one that can help with migraines. Seeing PCP on Tuesday, planning to call psychiatrist tomorrow.
So, I do think medications are good. Although I do wish I used less ibuprofen especially at work and we got so much better with pain and so many things.
