It’s Doctor Day! For the past few months, I’ve spoke little to nothing about my anxiety. Why or why? Because I haven’t felt anxious. Back in April, I decided to go back on meds. It was a really hard decision to make, but in the end, it was the right one. It took a couple of months for me to work up to the correct dosage, but once I did, my anxiety pretty much disappeared.
I’ve been on many different drugs throughout the years, and this is the first one that has worked without giving me too many side effects. I have had a couple of panic attacks, but rarely the daily anxiety that I know all too well. I’m sure the anxiety is in there somewhere because I still experience some of the emotional affects of it. At times, I’m overly sensitive and/or moody. I still possess some of my OCD rituals, and I turn to my wine more than I’d like. Still, I feel much better, so I’m off to renew the prescription.
The downside of the medication is it has sucked the creativity right out of me. I used to blog daily, and now I’m lucky to put out a post or two a week. I’ve mentioned before that contentment does not bread creativity. At least not for me. I wonder if the doctor can give me something for creative thinking? Really, what’s one more little pill?
Ohhhhhh, on another note, I made the most delicious Vegan Pad Thai last night. It’s been almost two months since I went Plant based, and I’m becoming quite the chef. I’m definitely more creative with my cooking. THAT’s a major plus.
SEX — My sex drive has been pretty great too. Just in case you were all wondering 😉
Alrighty, I’m off to see the wizard. Happy Friggn’ Monday folks.
