I’ve found that there are no magic pills. No easy fixes.
It takes hard work to manage chronic mental illness.
I take psychiatric medications, because the science of taking them, is in my corner.
I’m all about the science – 80%!
The other 20% is where I make allowances for my own brand of spirituality!
Nothing is perfect with chronic mental illness.
There are dark times, false starts, fears, setbacks, emotional moments, and workarounds.
In a nutshell, taking my psychiatric medications is the foundation for what happiness means to me!
Happiness in the long-term.
Happiness in the moment.
