Not that it's a bad thing...all of our snow has melted except for a 3"x 1" patch in the back yard. This time last week I was despairing that winter would never be over , and now I am looking at my fish swimming around in their little pond, going 'what's up!'
So maybe spring isn't too far away. And that's something to be happy about!
I have been feeling out of sorts and generally like crap for the last few weeks and I think I finally figured out why! Around Christmas, I stopped taking the anti-depressant I had been on for almost 5 years. It wasn't even really a conscious decision...I was forgetting doses more often than I was remembering them. My script was about to run out, and I didn't feel like trying to make an appointment with my doctor (whom I have mentioned before is becoming nearly impossible to get an appointment with). So I stopped. No biggie.
And then I started to notice that I was feeling 'different'. I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat. I can sleep forever and not ever feel rested. To top it off, i thought I had a sinus infection because I was getting dizzy spells, and I have had that happen before.
I did some research today on the web and found these to be side effects of meds withdrawl. Fabulous! Here I am, thinking I am doing something positive for myself, and it turns out that I'm not!
I put in a call to my Dr. a little while ago, and he (supposedly) will get back to me. I hope he can tell me something to do to get rid of these side effects. Everyone enjoys a little nap, but it's getting to be ridiculous. Not to mention that I probably shouldn't be driving when I am dizzy, which is more often than not.
No blond jokes necessary!
