Me & my meds

Thanks for sharing your story. As someone who will be on meds for the rest of my life (thanks, migraines and narcolepsy), I’ve never quite understood the stigma around mental health drugs. If someone is diagnosed with a medical condition like cancer, they start medication (chemo), and if they refuse, are deemed crazy. But if someone is diagnosed with a medical condition like depression, we chastise them for starting meds. The more people like you speak up truthfully, the more it helps.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
