Just Say No

I have a very mild form of Bipolar 2 disorder. I'm on one medication, now, that works ok. Honestly, I can't tell just how well it works, because I'm in pain so much, but it does make me feel more peaceful inside, so I guess it's working.

My doc told me that she knows of a better med and got me pumped up to take it. Well, she gave me some samples the other day, but then warned me that after a couple months it'll make me hungry all the time.

Well, why the hell would I want to be hungry constantly for? It's bad enough that, even though I hardly eat, because I'm constantly nauseaous, I still don't lose any weight because I have a thyroid disorder, now I want to take a med that most likely will make me gain weight? Not!

It's this idea that because the new drug might "change your life" that you should ignore the significant side effects. It also makes me think of people who are desperate for pain relief and will allow their doc's to put them on Oxycontin. Oxy is almost as addictive as heroine and just as hard to kick. I hate that drug with a passion, because I've seen it ruin so many people's lives.

Why should I switch to a drug that maybe will make my life better, when the one I have now is fine and doesn't have freaky side effects? I'm going to tell my doc, "Thanks, but no thanks," next time I see her and give her back the samples.

Just because something can be done, doesn't necessarily mean we should do it. And sometimes you have to take a stand on something, especially when it pertains to your health, and just say, "No".
