Psychopharmacology (detail)

When undergoing treatment for serious mental illness, medication can become the focal point of your life. Basic questions of self-identity come into play. How much of what I feel, or don't feel, is caused by the meds? How much by the illness, and how much by my innate personality? I am not my illness, but to what extent am I my medication? All of the pills comprising the image are, or were, commonly prescribed for treating mental illness.
