Finally back on meds

And wow, I finally feel like myself again, optimistic, energized, confident. I spent 6 months off medication, first from the shortage and then tired of paying for appointments without getting any medication so I stopped going. It sucks that our medications are so stigmatized. I really feel mentally handicapped without it. My life goes into chaos mode. I feel like it's so easy to destroy my whole life when I'm unmedicated. My relationships, my work, my home, my health, everything suffers. I went ham on supplements during that time, and nothing comes close to granting me the level of stability I get from being medicated. F people who say "only take it when you need it", they clearly do not understand what it feels like to not be able to productively exist in society without assistance!!

Agree 100%: meds saved my life. Luckily there’s no problem with methylphenidate generics in Europe so far.

Yes, the real stress… and the point that we cannot get the proper medication in our country is what makes me think that one day I will lose it all 🥺 this stresses me even more
