We're hoping that you've gotten a doctor's opinion on this move, Adam!
Counting Crows' Adam Duritz claims that he suffers from a "severe mental illness," but he's saying that he's less crazy now and doesn't feel he needs his medication any longer.
Here's what he had to say about on his Facebook page:
"I was f**king crazy. I needed meds. I took meds. Now I'm less crazy. I need less meds. I'm stopping meds."
"Gotta keep pushing/get off this sh*t. Going faster than I should but it still takes too long."
And here's what Adam said about his condition back in 2008:
"I have a form of dissociative disorder that makes the world seem like it’s not real, as if things aren’t taking place. It’s hard to explain, but you feel untethered."
According to Adam, he's been taking Lithium, but he's now cut his dosage in half, which has caused "vicious withdrawal symptoms."
As long as he's gotten a doctor's approval, we think it's great that he wants to cut back on his medication. Lithium is powerful stuff!
Good luck, Adam!
