Re: Why so afraid of meds?
Thanks guys! Its so hard some days I feel like I "can do this" Then I chicken out. LOL I know its silly, I mean you never hear on the news someone died from taking medicaitons, so I am trying to pinpoint the reason I developed this fear.
Maybe it was because my mother got all screwed up for years on prescription meds, or my sister becoming addicted to oxy's then heroin. I don't know. Those were very tough years for me to deal with. I guess I subconciously developed a fear from meds dealing with there issues. I just wish I could get over it.
Like last week, I had a urinary tract infection. I was prescribed an antibiotic that I never took, cause I wasn't sure how it was going to "make me feel"
I think for me its all about feeling out of control. I have this, "I always have to be in control feeling" That gets me everytime. I get bad panic attacks when I feel out of control. I really have to breakt his habit.
