I can harldy believe it. I gave in to anti-depressants. I say "gave in" but now I don't know why I hesitated (more like fiercely resisted) taking them for over a decade. I've only been taking Lexapro for 4 days. 10 mgs a day. I already, as of tonight, feel a difference. I'm so excited I just had to share. you've heard me whine before, thought you'd want to hear something positive!
I have had a stomach ache since I started taking it, but it's eased up. not severe enough to make me stop... and I certainly can already see the clear benefits.
I hurt pretty bad. I feel "injured" but I'm not all emotional about it. it's hard to explain. I'm not foggy in the head. I feel... oh my goodness... happy. I know it's not a "happy pill"... but I'm not focused on the pain. I can clearly see all the good around me. it's easy to be happy when I see past my pain. wow. I'm honest to God shocked.
I'm so thankful my husband called my NS. I didn't even wanna call.
in the spirit of the upcoming holiday... my favorite of the year (gathered with my family and closest friends in my home... with no stress of gift-buying... tons of great food... oh yeah...) I want to say I'm so thankful I am finally taking anti-depressants I so obviously needed. thank God for good meds... good docs... great spouses. you all have a great weekend.
