I have been med free for 3 1/2 years. During the time that I took the meds, I also took the time to know myself better and become better aware of my triggers. I no longer take the meds that took away alot of my feelings, because I want to be able to "feel" if I am happy, angry, loved, sad, grieving...etc. Now I pay closer attention to how I react to different situations and feeling that I have. I guess I am working on having control of my brain that does not work properly, instead of letting it and the meds control me. We have a wonderful member that feels she is alone in not taking meds and is about to leave us. There have to be more of us in here that do not take meds and have or are learning coping skills that we can share with others. Will you please come forward if you are here?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
