Today I told my doctor I want to stay on my SSRI medication indefinitely.

I remember feeling angry & shameful when I first sat in his office, struggling hard with depression & anxiety. Not anymore.

I feel empowered by this decision. My life is SO much better with help.💪
I was worried I wouldn’t feel anything on meds. I was wrong. The dose I’m on still allows for worry and sadness, just not at levels that take over my life. I used to spend hours locked in anxiety, fixated on problems. Now I’m able to function and talk myself down.
My energy levels are good. I laugh like I used to. I’m no longer riddled with insecurity. I have my life back.

All this to say if you’re considering meds or a med switch, it’s worth a try. They work best in unison with other self-care, so do take care of you. You deserve it.❤️
