I'm kind of at war with myself about medication. Almost 2 weeks ago my dad bought me a non-prescription medication (because he know the prescription ones scare me some).
*possible trigger?* I haven't taken any yet because I'm scared. I want the help that it might give but I'm scared that I might have bad side effects or just won't work. or maybe even make stuff worse. I'm also scared that taking it might be giving into self harm because part of me wants the pain of a bad side effect. I promised my friend that I would start taking it after finals, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to keep that promise. I would like some advice about this...

Okay. I will check on you tomorrow to see how it goes. Remember, it doesn't start working immediately the way other medications such as an allergy pill works. It needs to take a bit of time to get into your system and work its way. It will help - things won't be perfect, but it will help you manage a bit better. Good luck!

Okay. Thank you. I just hope it helps some without too many bad side effects. Thanks...

I tried to start today. I'm not sure how it is. I can't tell what was just a coincidence and/or placebo. But I didn't get sick
