Thank you for writing about this issue. In addition to Klonopin, I take five other psych meds, and I hate it! I hate needing them to function! I’ve been taking most of them for 25 years, switching to a different med when one stops working. Because I’m mostly in remission, I occasionally try to wean myself off them (without my psychiatrist’s knowledge), always resulting in a relapse. I agree with you: I’ve finally accepted that to live the best life possible for me, I have to continue taking them, as much as I dislike it.
