Not being on the Lexapro hasn't caused any major issues as yet. It's been ten days since I've had one. I have been having a headache in the middle of the day, but that's okay. I haven't had any sleep issues since that one day.
A friend said she hated the year she was on it. Said that she felt like a zombie and that she'd lost a year of her life. Well, I sure liked not obsessing over the little things, but I'm finding things funny again. I mean, I'm laughing. And I'm actually doing things. Today, I washed the kitchen, dining room, family room, entry way and bedroom floors because my feet stuck to them. I was wearing socks to keep my feet from sticking. And my socks got dirtier in the house than when I walked outside. It's been bad and I didn't realize how bad it was. I washed the bed clothes and put fresh linen on the bed. Made breakfast, washed the dishes and ran the dishwasher.
It's hot here today and I put on my suit and went into the pool to cool off after all the work I did. So, I sure seem to be doing better. Talking to quitting with Brian, he said now he better understands people who go off of their medications. How sometimes being on them is worse than not. I know my leg pain was amost unbearable.
So, if things continue this way, I'll be calling and cancelling my appointment for next Thursday. I'm hoping whatever was rolling around in my head that got me started on Lexapro is gone and that depression is gone. I'm hoping it wasn't a permanent state of mind.
