For those of you out there who have found medication really helped you, what was your experience? How many medications did you try before you found the right one/combination? What about the medication(s) that work for you made the difference? When did you realize it was helping, how did that present itself? I've been thinking about medications for a while now, but I've been hesitant because I have a hard time imagining how they could actually help. I think I'm so used to my current way of processing/thinking it's difficult to see that it could be different. I also go down the thought process of "I get by and function well enough without so why add medication to the mix?" That along with some fear that either they wont work or could make me feel worse/dependent. Lately, though, I've been finding that even though I am outwardly successful/functioning, internally I'm exhausted by the constant negative thoughts and feelings. Even though I've learned a lot of coping mechanisms with my therapist, it's still so tiring constantly fighting with these thoughts/emotions. I think I might need more. All feedback appreciated.
