Hi guys.  I’m having an awful allergic reaction to a medication right now, and trying to manage the whole array of other issues that arise also, when that happens (i.e. coordination of care between doctor, patient, pharmacy and insurance company).  So I thought I’d take a moment to make a quick video relating to same, to try’n help others understand what it means to have to take medications, and what is so difficult about it.

I think a lot of people don’t understand the issues that come along with taking meds for a “mental illness”, so I give voice to that here.  Just keep in mind though too, that other than having an allergic reaction, this particular video just barely begins to touch upon “side-effects” from medications.  That’s a whole ‘nother issue for a whole other post.  Actually, that will probably have to be presented in a series of posts, because it’s that complicated.  But at least this is a start…
