So I met with my PCP a week ago and we decided that it was time for me to come off my antidepressants. Well now I’m regretting it big time. I’m taking half a dose to try and ease myself off of it. Well, about the time mid-afternoon rolls around, that dose is out of my system. Which leaves me shaky, nauseous, and with a terrible headache. I feel like I’ve got a hangover or something. Ugh. Definitely not fun.
But, the better news, and the reason I came off the Zoloft in the first place, is that I’m working really hard to get healthy. Really hard meaning: lifting weights, running, eating much healthier, no sodas, etc., etc., etc. And I’m feeling really good physically. I’ve lost an inch off my stomach and thighs. And I’ve almost achieved a six-pack. Woohoo!
So that feeling healthy almost balances out feeling depressed. Almost.
