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

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU SO MUCH. Yes, medication isn’t for everyone, but they do work for a lot of people. I’ve been taking antidepressants, anti-anxiety, and ADHD medication for ten years (yes, I was diagnosed and started using meds when I was still a child) and I can say that they’ve greatly improved my life. They help me stabilize my moods and anxiety so that I can actually work past and deal with my emotions instead of being incapacitated by them. 

So it really pisses me off when I see all of this “MEDICATION IS LITERALLY THE SPAWN OF HITLER AND ALL DOCTORS ARE OUT TO GET YOU” bullshittery on Tumblr. And, whoever is reading this, please do not trust the words of some Tumblr user over those of a medical professional. Doctors are here to help you. Medication is here to help you. Like OP said, it may take some trial and error to find the medication that works best for you, but you just have to keep going and not give up.

There is nothing shameful about taking medication. There is nothing shameful about needing help. Don’t let some jackass ranting about the evils of medication on Tumblr talk you out of trying something that could vastly improve or even save your life.

Miles Jai saying what needs to be said.

"There was also a LGBT panel (at Playlist Live) that my friends were on. That was really fun to go to, and it was also very, um, enlightening. But the thing about having, like, an all gay cisgender white panel and calling it a "LGBT panel" even though there’s only gay white people on it isn’t really very accurate. And you know, I feel like a lot of people, even the panelists, have agreed that there should be more representation on the panel. I mean, who could they find that represent a different part of the LGBT spectrum? So yes, more represntation in the LGBT panels. Not just like, one lesbian and 4 white gay guys."

here’s to more diverse panels in the future! :)
