Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

I think perhaps I understand now…

Well, I think the emotional upheaval I’ve been going through recently is actually not abnormal, nor is it a sign that I’m losing my mind – no, really!

I think three years of being on an antidepressant then coming off of it has been catching up with me and I am simply having to adjust to being off the medicine.  Yes, I went off of it carefully and deliberately and yes, that was definitely the right decision.  I am apparently just completely unused to FEELING just about EVERYTHING.

I’m doing much better now and things seem to be settling out a bit.  I think that I am responding much more normally to things both good and bad now; we shall see if that lasts! (lol – family visit coming up in a day and a half!)

One thought on “I think perhaps I understand now…

  1. Hi, I was reading some of your previous posts and i wanted to encourage you on your path to go without medication. Never an easy thing to do. But ultimately, I believe it is the best decision for most people who are able to do the other things, like you have, of keeping gratitude journals and exercise programs. It won’t be easy. I doubt it will ever be easy, but who ever said life was supposed to be easy. I won’t bore you with all of my theories, I just wanted to let you know that there are other people out there who are managing to live full lives with mental illness and without drugs. Be well, Marco. http://bipolarized.wordpress.com
