“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.” Mark Twain

It’s funny how people feel about medication.

I, for a long time, hated it. I wanted to be completely medication free. Being asthmatic with bad allergies but an end to that. Having MS didn’t help.

I’ve had to swallow that pill (I’m bad at puns) and take it in.

The new medication combination I am on has worked wonders. I have ENERGY. I can focus, I feel – normal? Is that really a thing? Do normal people really have no negative thoughts or constant streams of thoughts circling through their mind telling them all the bad stuff they have done over and over and over?

I’m being re-educated in a sense. I’m learning that it’s OK if you need medication – for health and mental health. I’m technically on two ADHD meds. The one helps me stay awake during the day (yay!), but it increased my anxiety (boo!). The second brought down my anxiety (YAY!) AND helps me focus too (YAY!).

I don’t remember the last time I felt this good.

I’m calmer, too.

I think I like this education in my health, so long as it doesn’t turn me into a sheep…or brick in the wall…
