Im new here but thats not stopping me from posting this information.. Im on another forum but no one there seems to understand what Im going thru. That motivated me to join here (at the urging of a friend whos also on here). Heres a little information on my current life crisis.. I have stopped taking my current medication. All the medication makes me ill. Im either throwing up every few minutes, sleeping 20 plus hours a day, waking up to my own screams gasping for air, or having major reactions such as hives/rash/swelling ect. The lastest medication caused me to pass out numerous times before I thru it in my medicine cabnet grave yard! I have been on medications for this for about 8 years now. I was not taking any medication for around two years time (ages 17 - 19) and I was okay. Then issues with my guy came up, I had a baby, the state became involved, ect, ect.. Then I went back on the medication at the urging of the state. I have stopped it on my own without their consent and Im falling apart. I dont feel I need the medication but everyone around me tells me that I do. I dont want to spend the next oblong years of my life going thru medication induced heck trying to find one that works for me... Thats just barely any info on the situation.. Im open to any advice..If you need to know more in order to help me, just ask me what you need to know..
