**********part of 3rd edit...I DO NOT THINK IF YOU TAKE MEDS YOU ARE A BAD MOM, PARENT, CAREGIVER, FAMILY MEMBER, PERSON, AMERICAN, NON AMERICAN OR HUMAN*************


Do you agree? Or disagree?

EDIT what if the medication was marijuana? Would your mind change?

Edit 2-okay I simply asked a question. I didn't *judge* anyone. I asked a question. For the fucking record, I smoke weed for major anxiety I have suffered since childhood. Went to doc, got a cookie cutter diagnosis and given meds that blew me up and made me feel worse. Not thanks.

I wrote, this post because I always see ladies here say you're a bad parent if you smoke weed but not if you take other meds. That is something I wanted to point out. Not bash on mental illness.

So there. Don't yell and be an ass anymore please.

3rd edit...some of you people are fucking crazy and think the world is out to get you. Fuck.

Disagree. Some people can manage anxiety without meds; others find taking meds makes them less focused on their anxieties and more on their kids.

Disagree... I think it takes a strong parent, to realize they need professional help and then follow through so that their children have a better quality of life!

Assuming they are not abusing the medications and are taking them as prescribed...

Disagree- if something helps you not eat your own young, go for it.  LOL

A parent with anxiety problems should take meds for it. But also seek ways to relieve the stressors in her life if a all possible.

DISAGREE! HIGHLY DISAGREE!

Part of being a good parent is having your kids in a safe, secure environment and if that means you have to be on meds, then so be it.
