Does Medication Help or Hurt Mental Health Issues

I have written many posts on the use of Benzodiazepines. I notice that when I write, I write with anger. Why?

Being riddled with Generalized Anxiety disorder I was prescribed Klonopin many years ago. At first they were the best thing since slice bread

Over the years while they still help, I found myself dependent on a medication to live life

Over time my dependance on them took control of my life. Made me a different person

So now all these years later, I’m learning to live all over again without being dependant.

While it is a challenge, it can be done. Anything can be done if you set your mind to it.

I’ll end this post thanking someone for always being there and for being an inspiration and a reason to believe.

I’ll use the lyrics from an Ed Sheerran song called Perfect to express my feelings.

I found a love for me
Oh darling, just dive right in and follow my lead

Well, I found a girl, beautiful and sweet
Oh, I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

‘Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
Not knowing what it was
I will not give you up this time

But darling, just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
And in your eyes, you’re holding mine

Baby, I’m dancing in the dark with you between my arms
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favourite song
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my 

But you heard it, darling, you look perfect tonight

[Verse 2]
Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets

We are still kids, but we’re so in love
Fighting against all odds
I know we’ll be alright this time
Darling, just hold my hand
Be my girl, I’ll be your man

I see my future in your eyes

Thank you and may God Bless
