**********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.

Omg! Have you ever taken a xanax?

Quoting Anonymous:

Marijuana changes your state of mind and affects decision making.  It doesn't JUST relax you.  That's the difference between other prescription anxiety medications.

I am known for being an advocate for weed. I don't think I will begin to kiss anyone's ass to epease small minded individuals.

Quoting Anonymous:

I can't aska mother fucking question?

I feel bad for the touchy dumbasses...

Quoting devildogtigress:

So Zoloft makes me a bad parent? I beg to differ, and my kids would agree: I'm a BETTER parent because of it. I'm calmer, and able to act instead of react....and things like the financial stresses don't effect me as much leaving me free to just love my children and being a fun Mommy.



I just can't see how you can ask this....and neither can most people here either it seems....

Ok, here is my issue.
I take PRESCRIBED TO ME *LEGAL* medication for anxiety. For the first week it made me very sleepy but once my body adjusted to it and now I have no side effects.
Pot, on the other hand has a "high" effect that can impair judgment and render you unable to drive, work, or make responsible decisions in emergency situations.
In most states pot is ILLEGAL. I'm more liberal in some in my opinion about that, and my personal opinion is that if alcohol is legal, then maybe pot should be too. Let the government grow it regulate it and tax it in the liquor stores.
I would have the same opinion if some one said "I drink two glasses of wine every night to unwind from the anxiety of the day" it's not a good way to do it and a bad habit.
If you truley have anxiety issues you NEED to seek treatment before it becomes worse
The meds you were on may not have been right for you, and honestly it can take a year to find your right combo.
I worked mental health.
My husband works substance abuse.
I am not bashing you OP but begging you for your sake and the sake of your children to seek medical help by a trained psychiatrist

I understand but weed isnt the long term answer. Eventually causes the noids. Parinoids. Be aware of that. You may need to talk to a therapist who could help. Awareness of the causes really helps.

Quoting Anonymous:

Yeah, I didn't smoke as a young child. I have had anxiety since a small child and didn't try weed until 15.



Quoting Anonymous:

The marijuana is what could be causing your anxiety. See a counselor if you dont like medication. Good luck.

Again, I, haven't gone into great detail about medical interventions,, it is not needed.

Frankly, just because your meds are prescribed and mine aren't doesn't make me unaware what works for me. When it comes to my health, sorry but the government can kiss my butt.
