sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years
this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
recently stopped meds due to a lot of external chatter egged on by a fear of dependancy. this helps. thank you.
I think it’s worth adding that sometimes mood stabilizers are assigned to treat depression or related conditions, though the categories of mood stabilizer and anti-depressant are indeed separate. And mood stabilizers aren’t a negative thing either. They too, like antidepressants, can be necessary to live a normal life, and shouldn’t be seen negatively any more than anti-depressants are.
Also, sometimes you have to take more than one at a time. Especially if you’ve got Depression AND Anxiety. I’ve got both. I’m on Zoloft right now, and it’s working GREAT for my anxiety. But it’s doing nothing for my Depression, so I need to find a mix that works for me.
You aren’t being over-medicated if you take two antidepressants, and you aren’t being over-medicated if you’re on 100mg of Zoloft.
I’m constantly being told that my Psychiatrist is a horrible doctor and is over-medicating me. But it was actually my old Doctor that was horrible at her job. She put me on 25mg of Zoloft and didn’t tell me anything about it, including side-effects.
Don’t listen to people like that. If you are truly in need of that medication, then use it. You aren’t being over-medicated if you’ve got a good doctor or psychiatrist that knows what they are doing.
WHY DO PARENTS ALWAYS RUIN YOUR DAY AND THEN ACT LIKE THEY DIDNT RUIN YOUR DAY AND WONDER WHY YOURE IN A BAD MOOD
So a boyband walked onto the Britain’s Got Talent stage and everyone thought they were going to sing One Direction or something typical…and then they sung Stars from Les Miserables.
This is the best thing ever. Just listen to those harmonies <3
Simon’s face says “I like it against my will.”

the best way to get over boys and boost your self-esteem is to exclusively listen to beyonce
you are not fat

on the blink 182 wiki page there’s a legend section that talks about who they’ve influenced and after reading all of those i realized without them there’d be no fall out boy, no panic, no mumford and sons, no mayday parade, no all time low, no 5sos, no before you exit, never would have been mcr, and so many other bands would have never existed if it werent for them just wow you go blink 182
