Should I take medication?

Since our goal is to promote a prompt recovery and to create autonomy, medication is another tool to be considered in certain cases. Medication can be a great option. Medication can stop unendurable pain and facilitate mental work much as an epidural can help a woman during childbirth avoiding exhaustion and allowing labor to progress better. However, medication is hardly ever the only solution to emotional health.
I am lucky to count on a great psychiatrist who shares my point of view and medicates extremely well.
