Well, it's official here: I'm not an Addict.

After months of unrelenting pressure, I was off all my meds.

Yesterday, I finally caved in despair and desperation to 'just check' a 'dual diagnosis/recovery' facility.

Within five minutes, they were like, umm,
you don't belong here.

They spoke at length with me. They gave me f*ck*ng crisis counseling and referrals because I am such a wreck.

I have dragged myself and been dragged
through this because someone said I was addicted. So I am absolutely taking care with this word.

I am sooo taking a middle road approach to medication. I am also letting people use that addict word for themselves. But I'm done. Hands off me.

The facility place said, yeah, people get very reactive when they hear the word addict. They were horrified by what some caring people had pushed on through. They offered to call and counsel any and everyone in my flipping AA family.

It's o.k. to decide for one's self regarding
psychiatric medicine. But for someone else, everyone, please be kind.....
