My mom poo-pooed my meds

My mom has been away for 3 weeks. She just called and I told her I was having a glass of wine. She said "Well that's a lot better than all the drugs." Just because I'm going off of Geodon doesn't mean I'm on less meds. I told her I started a new one (Abilify) and she said "Oy vey." I was annoyed.

It's so frustrating that the people who should care and you want to understand are like that :-(

How sad. My husband does the opposite. If I become upset or frustrated for any reason he asks if I've taken my medications. I hate that it's either one way or the other.

People of that generation really don't know much about mental illness.  Don't let her dissuade you from doing what is best for yourself.

Tell her that when she gets her degree in medicine, you will take her advice. Most moms want their kids to feel better.

welcomeMy son gg and I all try to help each other remember our meds. Because we feel better when we take them.
