#ITakeMyPillsBecause

Dooka & Isa Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

We interrupt your browsing with a short aside. It has recently come to the attention of Isa and I (Dooka) that there hasn’t been a blog post for this on the website, even though there probably should be one.

By “this” I mean the hashtag #ITakeMyPillsBecause that was sparked by a documentary on Netflix titled Take Your Pills that essentially tried to demonize and liken the taking of ADHD medication to street drugs.

This hashtag is a way to express the many reasons that people may have for taking medication for their mental illnesses, and creating awareness for the difference that taking medication can make for those that choose to treat their mental illness in this way.
