Way too many women are on medicine for moods, depression and such. Abuse and PTSD I understand. OCD and Bi-polar I understand. But stress and depression and anxiety like myself and many others have....how do these pills help? Is it the fact that we give up-not letting our minds heal us?As far as I can remember, women in the past had the occasional nervous breakdown, went to a facility and came out forever stigmatized because of this. Do any of you feel any different becuase of taking your meds?
Perhaps back in the day women did self medicate with alcohol. Again, a subject for the neighbors to gossip about. On the other hand....if there was one drug that I could take to make me feel normal and happy...I would probably take it. But shouldn't I be able to trust God and my own mind to "fix" my feelings? Am I allowing my feelings to take over my brain and heart?
Gotta go and help Hunter do yard work. I have my own agenda but he wants me to dig up dandelions. And I will do so. Perhaps that will take my mind off my own stupid thoughts distracting me.
