Feeling better? GREAT!!! But...
Oct 21, 2022
So, you have been seeing a counselor and taking new medications... You are feeling like a million bucks right now. I couldn't be happier for you, but, please allow me to let you in on a little secret...
There are 3 reasons you are feeling great!
- Hard work/Determination
- Talking out your issues with a Counselor
If you completely stop seeing your counselor, you need to find someone you trust to continue to talk with about your hurts, habits and hangups. If you think you are feeling well enough to stop taking your medications, reach out to you prescribing doctor and talk about this before you stop taking the medications all together. Work with them in a healthy way to taper yourself down.
I'm on NO WAY saying you haven't worked hard to get to where you are, so, please don't take it that way. I am just saying that you had a little assistance along the way... and I can only speak from my personal past experiences here, but I have seen it time and time again. We get to this point and we stop everything that helped us up to now. A month down the road (longer for some, shorter for most) we find ourselves back to where we started, possibly even worse than before.
Remind yourself why you got help to begin with. Remember your WHY?
Weigh your options and do what you believe is best for yourself. I hate seeing anyone relapse for any reason, especially if it is avoidable.
Thank you for coming to my "Ted Talk"... Which will forever be known now as a "Chuckles Chat"
Journey on, My friends.
