Medication is a 1-Up, Not a Warp Pipe

I recently switched Doctors to find someone closer to where I live. I also wanted someone who might be more responsive to my questions and concerns about my mental health.

After our first appointment, we adjusted my medication in order to address some generalized anxiety along with the depression I’ve already been working on.

I’ve been gradually adding the new medication into my routine over the last two weeks. It’s still too early to tell what kind of impact it’s going to have.

I tried explaining it in a tweet:

Medication isn’t the whole answer. Like a 1-Up, it gives me another chance to get things right. It’s not going to take me to the end of my mental health journey without any effort on my part.

I welcome the opportunity to keep working at this.
