I was always afraid that medication would erase every bit of creativity from my body. It had the opposite effect instead: I can focus on my writing and art so much more in comparison to the pre-medicated me. It’s like the huge weight that was already crushing my creativity (I didn’t even know it was there!) was lifted. I’m truly amazed.
obsessivelynormal I agree- since being on medication for anxiety/OCD my creativity has been set free. As well as buzzing with ideas, the meds have released me from my harshest critic - myself. While I’ll never be confident about my abilities I can actually create without immediately trashing/deleting/dismissing everything for not being perfect.
Taken for chronic anxiety.
It may make me look calm on the outside but on the inside I feel like I’m screaming through a plate-glass window.
