I have accepted my diagnosis and feel like I am on the other side of it now living symptom free. For different reasons not everyone with a mental disorder is able to accept their diagnosis and I have recently been educated on that fact. For me it was very freeing to have a diagnosis to explain what was happening to me while psychotic and then when the medication helped me to get stable again and live much more functioning, I was very happy to have medication that works so well.
It is alamring to me when I hear that some people go for a season without their medication. I cannot imagine going off of mine- for any reason at all. I do not want to be psychotic again and the medicine keeps it away so why would I want to chance that by playing around with my medication?
Life is so good right now!
But I refuse to judge others’ decisions because my reality is just that, mine not yours.
