Taking The Stigma Out of Medication

View More: http://victoriagloria.pass.us/spring2015monarch

For my third podcast, I decided to elaborate on a recent set of Instagram Stories I had an overwhelming response to: the stigma of medication for mental illness. This is something very important that we don’t talk about enough. I’m hoping even more people get to listen in and identify with it. You should never feel any sort of guilt, shame, or judgment by taking a pill that helps you feel better, the same way someone with high blood pressure shouldn’t feel bad for taking their medicine.

In this episode I talk about:

  • My history with taking medication
  • The judgment, stigma, and guilt associated with medicating mental illnesses
  • The awesomeness medication can be when used appropriately
  • Medication prices
  • Weening on and off of medicines, and finding the one(s) that work for you

    I love hearing your podcasts. I definitely was one that spoke to you on IG stories. After dealing with years of mental problems, I feel it’s time for me to find a medicine. The payoff spuns much better then what I’ve been living. Thanks for the wonderful podcast.

      Thank you so much, Mormo. I’m sorry you’ve been through a similar issue, but I hope you were able to come out the other end with the perspective that you need them and there shouldn’t be anything wrong or taboo about it! You’re still awesome. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the other two podcasts. We’re just getting started, so stick around.
