    Default Believing there is nothing wrong even when there's mountains of evidence otherwise

    Do you ever do this. Like I think oh everyone gets paranoid, everyone hears things, everyone sees things that aren't there. I don't need meds than I end up screwing myself over. I don't know if it's part of the illness or me being stubborn. But the point is I was telling everyone I was still taking meds even when I wasn't I ended up having a bad episode of paranoia and auditory hallucinations yesterday. So why do I do this? and I've been getting paranoid periodically the past week. It was so scary it's like being on a really bad trip, is the best way to describe it. I'm back on them now, but I don't know why i keep taking myself off of them.I really don't. It was so bad that when i reported all my symptoms today they tried to put me in the hospital to stabelize me and i got the do you know where you are quiz. So what do I do? I'm on supervised meds now, but i won't be forever.

    I just need to know if people relate.

    Yeah a bunch of people (back when I used to interact with people) used to tell me I was depressed. I always just said fuck you no I'm not.

    Not really, but I'm sorry to hear you're going through that.

    It would make sense that you feel you don't need meds. When on them, you feel fine, right? So then it seems like you don't need them. At that point, your body does not see a logical connection between the two, so you don't see any reason to take them.

    I'd say it happens to a lot of people that need medications, no matter what they are for. Not everyone, of course, but a decent number. For example, some people feel they don't need to take high blood pressure medication because they terrific when they are taking them.

    I know this post didn't really add anything, but I felt like responding. :/

    Any chance you cuold see the pills like you would see vitamins? I mean..yuo dont need to take vitamins, but many people still do just to ensure their body has everything it needs, even if they dont feel teh difference or notice the need for taking them.

    I hate taking pills. I guess I just don't like to think there is something wrong with me. Even when I'm sick I still secretly think that the doctors don't know anything and the pills will have unwanted side effects, and I will try to stop taking them as soon as I can, except for antibiotics, which I always take as prescribed to fulfill my duty to humanity not to let bacteria develop into drug-resistant super-bacteria.

    yeah i agree with this.

    it's a catch 22 so to speak it's like part of me is like no no no, and another part of me is yes yes yes. It can be scary but it can be fun but each time the consequences are more severe when i go off them

    One solution might be to start manufacturing pills coated in chocolate and other delicious goodies. Of course then we'd have the opposite problem and everyone would be ODing.

    Hmm...'tis a pickle.
