Thanks. I just wanted to check in with you and see how things were going for you.
I'm so glad to hear that you had a clear, in-the-moment kind of day. As my 4 year old would say "big thumbs up!"
I hear you about wondering if you've missed out on your DD's life somehow because of being in a fog. I feel this way about myself sometimes too, but I just keep telling myself that I did the best I could at the time with what I had and what I knew or thought to be true.
Update for me: I'm completely off the Zoloft now. I was taking a literal "crumb" every night for a few days but I quit about 3-4 days ago. I noticed once again that I had that loopy "spaced out" feeling for a couple days afterward, but it's pretty much gone now.
I also noticed that I need to eat when I first get up in the morning now. I can't wait around like I used to do.
I've been rather irritable off and on - partially because I feel like I'm not being numbed into complacency about everything in my life. It's kind of like I woke up one day and realized that I really was
angry about a few things. This kind of freaked me out for a few days, but I've been able to talk to DH about some of it and he's been very understanding and willing to step up and do his part for some of the relationship stuff that had been bothering me. None of it was "new" stuff really - it was more like I finally have enough energy to do something about what I want in life.
Have you (or anyone else) noticed this while getting off anti-depressants or such? Or like a huge personal growth spurt?
After the holidays, I'm getting to the ND for a complete work up including hormones so I can figure out where I am at and how best to get the rest of my health back to where I want it. Also, I want to see if I have a hormone imbalance or if I'm becoming peri-menopausal.
Good luck with your continued success! And thanks for letting me tag-along on your thread.
to all of us on this journey.
