Somebody Tried To Talk Me Out of My Medication

March 2, 2020

I know how to stand up for myself very well. For example, one year at Pantheacon (part of the reason I didn’t go this year, its final year), a woman was telling me I shouldn’t take medication, or at the very least she was about to get on my case as those sorts are inclined to do. I caught on to this eventuality and said that in the present, medication is the only treatment for schizoaffective disorder. If you have medication around, it is easier to deal with, you cannot in good faith, or if you have a conscience at all, talk people out of taking needed medication. I was busy fending her off with, hey, you know what, don’t talk to me like that. I then walked her over to the workshop leader, who I mentioned her behavior to by saying “she told me to stop taking my medication,” I successfully made her squirm because she opened her mouth, like “ah!” The leader had to deal with her since I abruptly left the room. All in a day’s work.

  1. I totally agree with you. We have doctors for a reason.

      Yeah, well, I stay away from those who think medication is bad. I like being able to sleep now for goodness sake, considering how sleep deprived I was in high school, and parts of college when I was half-assed treated for schizophrenia only not schizoaffective.
