Nature has always been our natural pharmacy and has what we need to sustain and maintain our lives. 💚
As much as I’d love to believe it, I can’t really afford to. I think we have de-evovled when it comes to our mental health. Over time it’s gotten worse with the advent of technology and new social structures. It as affected us today where nature isn’t a cure-all for those with severe mental disabilities. I’ve tried several times to be without medications and it didn’t work. In a few years I end up with a breakdown and I’m back on my meds.
Now that I’m pregnant I’m not on most of my medications. My Tourrets has returned but it’s hard to say if my mental state is failing right now because of the pregnancy. Generally I feel fine. I’m on a much lower dose of my Seroquel and trileptal. Impulse control is hard for me so it’s a little tougher but that’s it. Having a baby has given me something to look forward to as well. Since my only pregnancy symptom is fatigue (no morning sickness) I’m doing okay.
When I was eating healthy and working out while on my meds in the past I was doing pretty good but my mania was kind of bad. I made impulse decisions I don’t regret. I’m not sure if I can blame it on mania or just determination to move on with my life.
For me, nature and medicine helps but unfortunately I need my medications to keep my ass out of trouble.
