Well after my last post, things kind of went from bad to worse. I really felt like I was in a pit and couldn't get out.
Four years ago I started a medications called Effexor XR for anxiety, I was not happy to be going on it but it really helped me a lot. I had often talked to the doctor about getting off of it...but the time never seemed right. Well this spring we decided that I could try and come off. Now you can't just stop taking this medication...you need to go down in dosage very very gradually. I was able to completely stop taking it in June, I felt such a sense of accomplishment.
After this last week I decided I needed to go back to the doctor and start up again. I spent a great deal of time in prayer and the Word, while I would like nothing more than to be free of any medication I know that right now I do need to be on this medication.
The first little while on this drug is tough, there are side effects...I'm just waiting for them to go away so I can start feeling normal again!!
On thing that makes me very happy is having Jen here with me!!
