You have to do what’s best for you. Medication is one tool to help you have the opportunity for success in your endeavors. You are different, and that’s ok. To succeed, you have to accept the diagnosis and the fact that you need to treat it. You wouldn’t shame yourself if you became diabetic and needed insulin, so don’t shame yourself for this.
