sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH. Yes, medication isn’t for everyone, but they do work for a lot of people. I’ve been taking antidepressants, anti-anxiety, and ADHD medication for ten years (yes, I was diagnosed and started using meds when I was still a child) and I can say that they’ve greatly improved my life. They help me stabilize my moods and anxiety so that I can actually work past and deal with my emotions instead of being incapacitated by them. 

So it really pisses me off when I see all of this “MEDICATION IS LITERALLY THE SPAWN OF HITLER AND ALL DOCTORS ARE OUT TO GET YOU” bullshittery on Tumblr. And, whoever is reading this, please do not trust the words of some Tumblr user over those of a medical professional. Doctors are here to help you. Medication is here to help you. Like OP said, it may take some trial and error to find the medication that works best for you, but you just have to keep going and not give up.

There is nothing shameful about taking medication. There is nothing shameful about needing help. Don’t let some jackass ranting about the evils of medication on Tumblr talk you out of trying something that could vastly improve or even save your life. 

YES YES YES YES

And the same goes for the all the people who think that people with OCD/anxiety are nutjobs. The other week I was telling another teacher about some of my anxiety problems and she looked at me like I was from a psych ward—and she knows me better than that. I’ve gotten really good at hiding my OCD/anxiety (since most of it is mental/thoughts anyway) and I can usually function just fine; I just need a little help to make my brain control physical responses/panic regarding thoughts. I was on Sertraline (Zoloft) for 10 years and just recently switched to Prozac because the Zoloft had become rather ineffective (and the new stuff works great!).

But will I ever forget people’s faces when I try to explain to them my OCD/anxiety problems? No. There is nothing worse than realizing that people see you as a freak when you know you’re completely NORMAL, you just need a little medical help to get stabilized. 

So everyone: please be understanding and supportive of the people trying to make their lives better with the help that is available to them.

90% of the time I say ‘what?’ I realize what the person said as soon as they start to repeat themself.

This is why I always wait a few beats before answering whenever someone says, “What?” to me. 90% of the time, I don’t have to because they answer themselves.

If you’re a woman and choose to be a homemaker, who is in complete control of her environment and completes tasks on her terms and in the best way she sees fit, you’re submissive to the evil man….

But if you’re employed, where she works for others…
