It's been a bad time lately

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).

  1. Hi Dawn,
    I'm so sorry to hear you have been so ill. Not a good way to come home...
    I hope your new meds kick in soon.

    Can you email me with a phone number for you?
    It would be nice to chat... if you are well enough.
    Hugs, Susan
