Yes, I Take Anxiety Meds. No I Will Not Share Them With You.

Written by Tea Jay.

For a long time I had issues with my anxiety; I still do. Anxiety is something that rules my life. It has made me look like a fool, and do stupid things, and it’s made me miss out on opportunities and trapped me in bed. Anxiety can be a real bitch. But there is something that helps my anxiety when it’s out of control; medications. The first time I told my friends that I had anxiety medications they became excited. They asked if I would share so they could get high.

 

If you are taking them as prescribed, with the diagnosed issues they’re for, you’ll be fine.

 

This is the problem with so many psych medications. If you are taking them as prescribed, with the diagnosed issues they’re for, you’ll be fine. Sometimes there’s a groggy period with medications and this is where the stereotype of being a zombie comes from. If a medication continually makes you groggy with no change, you should speak to your prescriber about trying a new medication.

However, if you don’t have the diagnosed issue they are for, oftentimes pills can get you high. People abuse prescription drugs for recreational use. This is not how my medications are supposed to be taken.

 

It’s rude to ask someone to share their medications, not to mention illegal.

 

It’s rude to ask someone to share their medications, not to mention illegal. When I’m prescribed a medication it’s because I find it hard to function without them. When you ask for a few pills it’s invasive and rude. I’m not going to share my medications with you because you want to get high. My medications are to keep my anxiety at bay instead of controlling my life.

 

Friends don’t make friends share their drugs.

 

As for the friends who asked to share, well, they’re no longer friends. Friends don’t make friends share their drugs, especially when they’re needed to bring peace into your life. Medications are not meant to be shared; they’re for YOU only!
