I'm writing this post for anyone who would like to read it, but especially for those with mental illness who have suffered through withdrawal from medication--or any negative side effects of psychotropic drugs, for that matter. It's hard, but it's worth it in the end to find the right meds. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder nearly eighteen years ago, and I'm still switching meds sometimes to find just the right mix and balance. So for those of you out there and in the tribe, stick with it, take your meds, listen to your doctor. And be persistent about feeling well and finding the right meds.
I have been able to write today despite my unpleasant withdrawal feelings. In fact, writing has helped to take my mind off of how I feel. So if you're going through something like this, find something that you love to do and indulge in it. Unless you love riding roller coasters. No, I wouldn't recommend that. That would not be good.
