De-lurking is Delightful!

It’s that time of year, folks, national delurking week!  I don’t know if there are too many lurkers on here because I had to email a lot of you to give my new blog address out, but still, if you like what you read, leave me a comment!  I’m really nice!  Really!


Moving right along, I have to tell you that yesterday was probably the worst day so far of coming off my meds.  I can’t do it.  I can’t just “skip a day.”  You know what?  It really fucked me up.  I felt all of the following:

*flickering vision

*my hearing going quickly in and out

*over-sensitivity to smell

*extreme headache




 Isn’t that an awesome list?  It was like a party going on in my body!

I called the pharmacy, and they said that often times, a doctor will lower the dose, and then put you on the new meds while you are coming off the old ones so that you don’t get a lot of the bad side-effects.  I figure I will stay on the low dose until next week, and then give the doc a visit to see if I can maybe do a little transition instead of cutting off meds completely before new ones are perscribed.

Brain chemestry is a tricky thing!

    I’ll de-lurk even though I haven’t been lurking, but just because I like you. 🙂

    Remind me of those symptoms when I decide I want to go off of my meds. Ugh. Hang in there!

    The term “mudd butt” is one of my faves. It’s so descriptive!

    I’m not a lurker, but I heart you. So I’m commenting. Hi! 🙂

    O.K.! O.K.! I’ve lurked! I confess! I can’t take it anymore!

    And I hope things pick up for you soon. Finding the right meds can be a pain.
