Pill, pill, pull me in

'Swallow the pills; Be swallowed by the pills' - Ananya Behera

Certain mental disorders have no cure. People are forced to rely on medication for the rest of their life to remain stable, or to make up for the imbalance of neurotransmitters. This is the downside of diagnosis. One would imagine that after getting diagnosed, the doctors would finally know how to help you. There's a catch. They do help you. With pills. Though the blissful state or normality the pills produce is only temporary. But the pills themselves? Those are forever. Having experienced something similar myself... this piece is for all the people out there who are forced to rely and depend on chemicals, pills and medication even when they don't want to. Pills; they have the ability to help you. And the power to destroy you. Or swallow you whole.
