I didn't believe in meds before I started taking them [View all]

But I have been on lexapro for a few weeks now for my anxiety and I feel happy for once in my life. Seriously. I have had anxiety issues all of my life and I finally took care of it. All because I got a job with good healthcare. It makes so much difference. I don't dread going to work anymore. I don't dread paying bills. I don't dread going places which was a huge trigger. I feel good. Thanks to having healthcare. Fuck the gop trying to take it away.
