Right before the day I needed to leave for Canada, I got a flu bug. Driving three days north, just me and my dog, was all I could do. By the time I arrived on Vancouver Island I was in pretty bad shape.
I have had really good control over my chronic anxiety/depression for about 20 years with some of these new drugs that help control the levels of seritonin in the bloodstream/brain. But this flu totally overwhelmed my body chemistry as well as my energy level.
Today I start a new drug. Wish me luck! For any individual it is a matter of trial and error to find the right prescription. I sure hope to feel better in a few days though the doctors tell us that the new drug can take up to 2 weeks to take effect.
So, for the few of you who read this blog, I am still here, hanging on by my claws like the kitty in the "Hang In There" poster. I hope you are doing much more than hanging in; go out and bring joy to someone who may need your help.
More soon (I hope).
