This is something that i started taking about three months ago, i believe. if you missed my mental health update, i will link it down below. i go on medication, and that was something i’m open to and was open to. my psychiatrist bumped me up to a hundred milligrams. so for the first few weeks, nothing really was happening. and i noticed because i wanted to start doing

Things again. before, i couldn’t concentrate or do anything, really. and when i was talking to my therapist about i mean, it got to a point where i told her try to get an appointment with a psychiatrist was booked. i knew that i needed help, and i knew that help was there somewhere. actually my therapist found exodus, and it’s called exodus recovery. when i walked in,
