Part 2 of the ‘little story (see my last post to catch up on part 1)

I remember sitting in a psychiatrists office and hearing him say… you will be on antidepressants for the rest of your life. Its been a year off those anti depressants and I am the best I have ever felt in my life.

So instead of taking the steroid, I did a little of my own research. I took my power back. I learned more about my body, I learned more about my lifestyle. I learned more about my mind and my gut began to feel a bit better. I called in some external support with a vast knowledge that I don’t have. Its not 100% yet but its better than it was and that’s a start. It wont be instant happiness but over time I will see the improvements. Because I believe in my self, my knowledge and my body.

The thing with happily taking a pill that supposedly cures all your ails, is that it actually doesn’t cure them… it just masks what’s really going on in your body and in your mind. As soon as you stop taking the pill the problem comes back or even worse you have more problems because of side effects from the synthetic drug you’ve just added to your system to add extra stress to it. Then you think, gee i am a failure, my body is a failure, why cant I cant do things ‘normally’ and its a self perpetuating cycle of loserdom.
