I suffer from depression and anxiety. I have been on Paxil for 6 years now. Somedays I feel overly hyper and crazy and others I feel so tired and don't feel like doing anything. I can't stand when my husband or my mother ask me..."did you take your medicine today?" because of a certain way I am acting. It really hurts my feelings to know that I can't even be "myself" without a pill every morning. How can I make them understand the way I feel, and that when they ask me if I have taken my medicine that it hurts my feelings?
You need to tell them exactly what you told everyone reading your post; how it hurts your feelings. I admit I do the same thing to my daughter with her meds and I know she's rolling her eyes up! I do it as a "mother thing" b/c I just do!!! I'm sure it's because they love you and they care, that they ask.
Hang in there and take care.
Jausbun, I could see how them saying that would hurt your feelings. It's not a nice thing to say when they are saying it when they don't like the way that you are acting at the moment. It's not a very sympathetic response. It's like they are irritated with you. I would tell them exactly how you feel when they say this.
