How Does it Feel When Psych Medication Works?

I have spent hundreds of pages, over eight years, talking about what it’s like to be sick. I’ve talked about side effect hell and horrible doctors and an illness that tries to drag you, kicking and screaming, into endless darkness on a daily basis.

I have a lot to say on matters of mental illness.

But when things aren’t worse than you can possibly imagine, when the knives are down and the tissue box full, what, exactly is that like?

What does it feel like when the psych meds work?
