i think in order to stay you, you Must change. if a person doesn't change throughout their life, they've become stagnit and only a shell of who they USED to be. you must evolve to become. With that in mind i don't think meds will make you loose who you are. it's a matter of finding the right combo.

i must say i agree with a lot of your list. i like it. you're really honest, that's so good. and not common. i was scared too, mostly that i'd loose my edge, my protective layer. i think i have lost a little but i've gained so much more.

when you find the right med combo, you will feel just like you should, no altered states.

i have a depressive personality and that will never change, no matter the drugs, cuz it's not chemical it's innate, it's life/experience that has shaped my personality. so in that way i won't change but i can keep it from killing me, or changing my life for the worse.
like fallsfall said, you change what you want, and get help when you need help to re-shape yourself, but YOU make the changes, no one else, no outside force.

once a pain in the a$$ always a PITA.

however, i have no trust in institutions, hospitals are fine but we have a state run facility that is terrible. i think in an institution you get to the point beyond wanting help and just want out, that's when you change to what you think they want to get out. but in my eyes you've gotta do what you've gotta do.
so just remember who you are and no one can take that from you.
sorry this turned negative.

best wishes
