(Newser) Rumors have been swirling for a while now that the end is in sight for Britney Spears and fiance Jason Trawick, but the New York Post reports that the pair will be spending the holidays together in Louisiana with Spears' family. And in a new interview with People, Britney—whom the magazine named one of 2012's "Most Intriguing People"—gushed that Trawick "has the ability to always make me feel protected and loved."

But Radar insists it's all an act, and says the relationship has been all but over for a while now. As for that holiday together-time, the gossip site says Brit and Jason are actually considering it "a make-or-break holiday," according to a source who adds, "They know they have to figure things out once and for all because they can’t keep going on like this." But it's complicated, seeing as Trawick is also a co-conservator of Spears' estate. Star also reported this week that Brit is off her meds and was spotted having a tantrum over cheap body lotion in a Rite Aid, according to Jezebel.

Lots of mentally ill people suddenly decide to go off their meds because they feel good. Well, duh! Of course they feel good, because the meds are working! Going off psych meds can be disastrous. These meds certainly don't cure you. They balance the chemicals in the brain while they are in your system. Mentally ill people should never go off their meds unless they are doing it under the care of the psychiatrist who prescribed them. And even under those conditions, there shouldn't be a reason to go off them unless they stop working or they aren't the right meds for you because a. they don't work anymore, or b. their side effects are worse than the illness they're designed to relieve (temporarily). Brain chemistry is an inexact science because everyone's chemistry is different. This is one of the most difficult facts about mental illness and what can make it very tricky to treat. People with serious mental illness (bi-polar included, Britney) should basically reconcile themselves to being on meds for the rest of their lives. It's not the end of the world. We're lucky to have access to meds that can relieve our symptoms and give us the opportunity for a full life. Some garden variety psych meds can help people with some very serious mental illnesses. I have a friend with OCD whose serious disabling symptoms kept him pretty much holed up in his apartment repeating and repeating his ritualistic behaviors ad naseum. Then, his doctor put him on Prozac and now, the guy gets out in the world and has a life for the first time in about 30 years! He even started to volunteer at a local hospital, his very first "job." He loves living life for a change. Meds are not something to use for a while and then discard because we suddenly decide we just don't want to take them anymore.
