Here I’d like to talk about something I referred to in my employment talk at the 2016 NAMI-New York State educational conference.
For those of us who could benefit I want to offer a positive perspective on taking SZ medication.
In my firsthand experience and from observing others it’s my firm belief that most people diagnosed with SZ need to take medication to have a better chance at living a full and robust life.
Taking medication can give a person a competitive advantage in succeeding at setting and achieving goals in the real world.
Here now I’d like to talk about the benefits of taking medication for those of us who need to:
Side effects can be managed.
As soon as I switched the dose time to taking the tiny dose in the morning and the high dose at night–voila–I was wide awake every single day and no longer falling asleep on the job.
You’re in control.
I guy I love told me that he feels “calm, in control, and focused” when he takes medication.
Exceptional M.D.s and therapists can be found treating mental health conditions.
You can go on the Resources to Recover Website to view the directory of family-endorsed providers in the NY-NJ-CT-MA area.
True mind freedom is possible.
With clarity of thought and balanced moods it’s easier to live your life.
People who take medication can have better health and live longer.
One study revealed that peers who took medication were better able to stay on top of their health and actually lived longer.
A friend of mine with SZ is now 72 and he’s taken medication since he was 13.
On Thursday I’ll return with details about how the employment talk went and things I talked about. It was a smashing success.
