I am very angry. I always end up having a conversation with my mother about how I don't do well on medication. It is depressing and overwhelming.

Is it appropriate to tell a 25 year old that they are acting my best interest to do whatever they can to keep me on medication even if it is forcing me through a CTO and also to follow through with it and actually do it? Considering I live on my own with my own place. How is that appropriate? I'm 25 and it's MY body.

Thoughts?

To clarify the question is. Is it appropriate for my mother to constantly make it her business to put me on medication? To tell me I don't do well off of it and it's in my best interest to go on it? To force me to take medication? To tell me her opinion of my behaviour?
