And because some day I AM going to get through all the mythology books I've collected,dammit. That's why I'll stay on my meds.

Rapid cycling is so foreign to me; I often wonder if I may have SAD instead. And maybe so. But I stay on my meds. Because to stray from the path is to approach the wolf's den.
And for some reason, people only believe a person is sick if they take medicine...
I wish that weren't even a factor in my reasons.
