Mental Health Tip

Psych Yourself Up

Even today after two decades of taking medication each night I have to psych myself up to take my meds.

The medication is the daily reminder that I am sick and I have to face the truth each day that I choose to take them.

Oftentimes when I stop to think about why I need to take them I think not on the times when I was in the hospital or when I struggled for a long time after being released.

Before I take my medication I think about how healthy I am and how I wouldn’t want to risk getting sick for the sake of not having to take medication everyday.

So I take the meds to preserve my life and everyday I wake up healthy I know I need to keep taking them.
