An excerpt from NeuroTalk Support for people with neurological disorders and diseases

“Hi, My name is Camrin, at 15 years of age I was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 1. Neurofibromatosis is small tumors on your head or other areas of the body. Some of the symptoms might be brown spots throughout your entire body similar to birth marks. After the doctor diagnosed me with that I also had anxiety problems. I was than put on medicine called paxil. The teachers new that I was on it and they used to ask me if I took it or not. Sometimes, I would say yes and other times I would say no. I didnt like being on anxiety medicine because it made me feel so stupid.” white_lilies2445

NeuroTalk Communities

Hello Camrin and welcome to NeuroTalk.
Unless the teachers were dispensing Paxil they had no business asking if you had taken it or not.
Don’t feel stupid. Medications like Paxil help you not feel so anxious and allow you to do things that the anxiety was stopping you from doing.

  1. Hi Cammrin,

    never feel that way about yourself. Taking medicine doesn’t mean you are stupit. Lots of people take medicine. Feel good about yourself, and let others know you are happy with who you are. You are special.
