Medicated Life is a community for people who live with mental illness,depression and other mood disorders.
What this community is...
~ This is a positive community for supporting one another.
~ This is a community for people dealing with depression, mental illness and other mood disorders. This means that if you yourself are not being treated but you're supportting someone that you love who is being treated, you are more than welcome here.
~ This is a community to support people to stay medicated as long as needed.
What this community is not...
~ This community is not a Woe Is Me community. If you're joining the list to rant daily about how bad your life sucks and how you're going to stop taking your meds even though none of your doctors recommend it... don't bother. There are plenty of other communities in lj where you can do that.
~ This community is not therapy. We're not therapists or doctors, we're only people who have personal experience with living on medication or living with people who are on medication. Please seek professional help in getting diagnoses, medications and treatment.
~ This community is not disrespectful. Any flaming of members, other communities, or lj users that are not a part of this community will not be tolerated.
~ This community is not where you'll post about what medications not to take. Just because you didn't respond well to a certain medication doesn't mean that it doesn't work for other people.
~~~~~ Other information...
~ Posts do NOT have to be friend-locked. If you want to lock your posts, feel free... but you are not required to do so.
~ If you don't know how to do and lj cut and you tend to get wordy, copy and paste this: <*lj-cut text="What you want the cut to say"*>
Just remove the *'s before making the post.
The community is maintained by bethestage, any problems can be addressed directly to her via e-mail or through lj.
