Hi! For starters thank you for being so lovely. I was prescribed medication today for anxiety/ OCD. I was wondering if you have any advice about medication. I know you're not a doctor, but I have my therapist and doctor telling me one thing and my parents having the exact opposite opinion and I feel like I'm drowning in the middle. You've been open about your mental health so I was wondering what your experiences with medication have been like. Thank you for listening and for being you.
Okay, so I think it’s extremely important to talk to your parents, especially if you’re a minor. Do not take advice from an Internet Person who doesn’t know you, just because it’s what you want to hear.
That said, unless your parents are doctors and psychiatrists, I would listen to the medical professionals who are trying to help you get better.
Maybe you can ask your parents to come into the room with you for a session, just briefly, to discuss everyone’s concerns and answer everyone’s questions.
I’m so sorry you’re drowning in the middle. I know that feeling very well.
