New Normal

Sometime last month I misplaced my antidepression/antianxiety meds.  I’m between primary care doctors (really disliked the last one i tried and have an appt for a new one next month) so it wasn’t as simple as calling someone up and saying hey I can’t find my pills can you send a refill order in. By the time I found them I was already experiencing withdrawal symptoms and decided I’d just finish the detox and try it med free for a bit…

Anyone who read my last post knows it was a bit of a rocky transition. I almost went back on the meds at one point, but i reminded myself that i’d gotten through most of the bad and i’d have to re-do it if i wanted to go off again in the future (which i know i would) so i stuck it out. ANd i’m glad i did. I’m feeling better. I may still be having a few post med side effects or i may just not remember 100% what my anxiety was like before the meds but either way it’s managable.

I finished the semester with passable grades; some better than i feared some not as good as i’d hoped but all passable. I have hope for next semester since i’ll be taking few courses AND not be withdrawal in during finals.

Things are looking up and I’m doing ok…
