**********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. A stressed out mommy is not usually a good mommy, so if you have a prescription for a medicene to help control a condition, then by all means take them.

disagree. i would think you would be a better parent if the medication controlled your anxiety and you were more able to function properly

When my dad decided NOT to take his meds it was awful. I had to move out.

Disagree.  I would be more worried if you weren't medicated.

it doesnt make you a bad parents, however those types of meds change the chemical make up of your brain and mess with all sorts of shit. they can also cause increased risk of thoughts of suicide.

if you can deal wih your depression or anxiety naturally, that would, imo, be the way to go.
