The other day when I talk to my sister she told me that I need to get put on meds, I just couldn't believe what she was telling me!! She says that I worry too much and stress out over things way too easily so I need to get on some kind of medication because of this. Is this true?? I don't know if she was just saying that to be mean or what!! I am 28, I'm a new mother, I quit my job because I just couldn't leave my son with someone I dont know so I do stress over money.

alot of people these days are taking medication for stress, and other problems they are having. no its not true though. these medications though promoted by even doctors are dangerous. doctors are just like any other business people these days. they want money. these medications do not help your problem, they only cover them up, and you will need more and more of them until they become deadly addictions. If you are stressed and worried, you need to find out why, and try to solve your problems one at a time. Do not ever rely on medication to solve your problems.

Thanks for your response! I don't think when I feel stress it's anything that serious...I think it's just normal daily stress that everyone goes through. Trust me I know about doctors! Everything is about money these days! It's really sad but true! I don't want to take something for the rest of my life and have liver problems or whatever. Happy mylotting!

Yeah that's true. alot of people go overboard and think they have something seriously wrong with them, and they are alone in their issues, but the fact is lots of people are going through the same things. Its normal to feel stressed, its your body's way of keeping you in check. Letting you know that you need to not overdo it.

I am the mother of 2. I just had my son almost 7 weeks ago. I work from home so I don't leave my kids with anyone either. And at this point, name someone in this economy who isn't stressing over money. Please! Not knowing you personally I can't say. But just by what you have typed out if you need meds so do we all!

Tanya I know you and you DONT need no medication. Medication is a last resort. There are calming techniques you can look up to help relieve stress instead of getting on medication. your sister is on medication because of a different type of issue and hers is not stress her is mental. Your a new mom so your emotions are all over the place anyways adjusting to being a mom and stressing about money is normal you just gotta figure out a stress relief weather it be crochetting or just writing a journal about how your day went or what is bothering you. i dont believe medication is the solution. tell suzanne i said shes full of bologna and you dont need to be on no medication.

We all know how she is. I just think it's so rude of her talking to me like that. She has problems and I never try to put her down on anything. I shouldn't of let her comment bother me! I really do need to set aside sometime for myself each and everyday to where I just and do something for myself. Either giving myself a maniure/pedicure, taking a nice warm bath, crochetting/knitting, or whatever. I am just so focused on taking care of my son and trying to make some money that I forget to just relax and breathe for a minute. My husband works all the time then he also goes to school so I hardly ever get to see him or have him watch George while I do something for myself for 30 minutes. Even with this said, I wouldn't change my life for the world!! I get to take care of my son 24/7 without worrying about him being at a daycare or if anyone is doing something to him. Yes it sucks that I have no money but I do have a piece of mind. Hopefully my avon business blossoms and that would be a load off of me as far as bills are concern. You really need to move back here...at least until I move closer to you! Would be nice huh! I miss my bff!! Thanks for replying!! Happy mylotting!!

Well, she may have tried to make you think over your ways and be more calm or she was just teasing you.. I don't think that she would have told you "you need drungs" if she really meant it.. I have told the same thing to my sister a million times.. lol As for what you did for your child, that is admirable and it will help you grow better and stronger ties with your kid :)
