I sure wish that I had a choice about taking my medications at this point in my life at 55 years old. I self medicated with alcohol for years before I was diagnosed with psychosis. I fit the symptoms perfectly and I stopped drinking after getting on medications. It was tough trying to get the right diagnosis, but life became more manageable for me. I started to understand myself. My behaviors. Meds do not wipe out my illness they just help me from hurting myself and others. Believe me you suicide has always been an option for me.
