Over the last 20 years, nearly, I have gone on, and off, medication for my depression and ADHD. When I reject medication, it is because I want to show myself that I strong enough to handle my illness on my own, without help. What I have learned in the last two decades, is how misguided that is. I need, and have always needed, help. I need help from the people in my life. I need help from doctors. And, yes, to be my best self, I need help in the form of medication. I can get by without my pills, but that’s all it is – getting by. My wife deserves my best self. My clients deserve my best self. I deserve my best self. I’m not satisfied with getting by; I want more than that. I’m going to have more than that. That’s why I’m back on my meds, and that’s why I’m ecstatic about it!
