Stick with it. And if the meds bother you too much then maybe try another one since everyone reacts different. Right now I’m on an up side with some great things that have been going on in my life. I still get hit with that self doubt of oh crap can I keep this up and for how long? But I use the mantra progress not perfection and try to give myself a break. I’ve managed to do a lot and operating with what felt like half a brain. Which is more true than I realized.

Yep the meds don’t do everything and they don’t erase the past. But in the year and a half that I’ve had since being diagnosed I try to focus on the fact I’m building new memories and a better lens to reflect back on those memories with, And the other painful past memories? Well I just try not to dwell too much on them. And now I can look and and say well no wonder why such and such happened. I didn’t know what I was dealing with. It’s hard and sometimes there are just no easy answers other than knowing that others here have been there as well.
