My signature story that I’m going to tell every chance I get is that I received the right treatment within 24 hours of my breakdown and as a result I recovered. Recovered.
Getting the right treatment right away results in a better outcome.
I dare speak out against living with symptoms. Getting the right treatment right away can enable a person to live without symptoms or else have minimal symptoms.
I’m not a fan of glorifying illness nor of coveting living with symptoms instead of taking medication.
If getting and staying in treatment will allow a person to live without symptoms, I’m all for this.
Certainly a person will have an easier time of it if he or she doesn’t have symptoms or the symptoms are minor.
The reality is, for a significant number of people who take medication, the illness is in effect gone from their lives.
I firmly believe that a person can be recovered, past tense, precisely because he or she takes medication.
