The power of thought is amazing.
"I can't do it" = You probably won't be able to do it.
"I'm gonna do it!" =You still might not achieve your goal, but your chances of achieving it go up drastically.

I've failed a lot, I would know :D

I've realized recently that doubting myself all the time is really only going to set me back in the long run, so I've made an attempt to better my own mindset by only looking forward, only looking to the past for lessons and tools to use for the future.

It's definitely not easy; as someone with awful depression my thoughts do get in the way, but I've also gotten really tired of that as well and have been doing a lot of mental training (read: meditation) in the hopes of ridding a lot of my negative thoughts.

Deciding to stop taking my meds (Adderall) seemed to helped some but I still need to get rid of all negative thoughts
Negativity will be the downfall of everyone

I've briefly thought about going on meds, but there was this lingering thought at the back of my mind that it would just make my mindset worse instead of better. I actually want to beat my own negative thoughts on my own without the need for medication.

... Maybe I'm just being nuts, but I know it's possible. n.n

I decided I was on enough medication without additions.

...plus the side effects for some of them are terrifyingly unpredictable.

The side effects are another reason why I'm kinda distancing myself from meds, tbh.

Making yourself feel worse in an effort to make yourself feel better is a common thing with medication. I mean, no denying it works for some, and that's great. But they're not really an exact science when it comes to mental health issues...not in helping you manage them, anyway.

i was on another forum and the thread was about things about being a man that sucks and I'm dying of laughter

the thread quickly turning into a conversation on how to readjust your balls without being noticed. And this kid typed into the thread and the thread became the "padawan" all of the late teens/adults on how to readjust balls

i didnt need the suggestions, but I needed that laugh

Just remember, that a doctor isn't going to prescribe something to you without first knowing that it will help you more than the side effects will hurt you.

And pharmacists take a double check at the medications to make sure you are all right if you take them

I mean, hell, yeah, if for whatever reason you don't trust your doctor, trust a pharmacist. They have to know what every drug in their store does when combined with every other drug the store.

No doctor or pharmacist can say with absolute certainty that side effects of medication won't affect you, because everyone is different. But whatever works, I guess.

I could probably use some medication, all things considered. But I can't swallow tablets either =/

I hope they create more alternate forms of ingesting medicine soon. Pills are a pain. Some kind of patch would be nice, especially if you only needed to reapply it every few days.

I could use some anti-anxiety medication that doesn't drop my blood pressure to life-threatening levels. Some anti-emetics would be nice too.

But really I don't think medication for my mental health would work for me...get rid of my mental health problems and there wouldn't be anything left of me.

    Somewhere someday I read about a patch that makes you immune and cures you. I can't find the newspaper but I'm sure that those patches will be coming into the market around 2020

      A patch would be more convenient, but I've been taking my meds for so many years I'm used to it by now.

      That's not what I said at all. They go by the assumption that it will affect you negatively, but still prescribe it if they know there's a greater chance of it helping than harming you.

      Sure, if they care enough. Most don't.
