Recently, when we were on the main chat room, there was a discussion about if a person can control their reaction to being on medication. My belief is that it really depends on the person’s background. For me, prior psychological problems controlled my reaction to it. Growing up, my father was, well, a really bad father, to put it bluntly. It seemed that, any time he noticed there was a problem going on with me or my brothers, he never really tried to help. All he did was try to put us on some kind of drug. My resentment of everything he is and that particular action of trying to drug us up to get us to shut up has developed in me a repulsion of all medicinal drugs. Because of my past, I cannot control my reaction to taking them, even when it seems I have to.
