I started a new medication this weekend. It seemed to work right away. I verified with someone that was what was supposed to happen.
I let myself hope it would complete my med regimen and be my magic bullet.
Then I woke up today.
The anxiety built and built and built until I needed to supplement what I had already taken. And then I needed a nap. Bless my girls, they just quietly did their math work I had assigned them while I rejuvenated with a quick nap.
Unfortunately, the panic built inside. I didn't want to interact with others. I had no patience, but the added medications gave me enough to bluff through the day. Now? I want to run and hide in my bed, but I think I should find myself down to the treadmill instead.
And hope tomorrow is just a bit better while dreaming of the day everything is all better.
Have you had a medication fail after you thought it was going to work? Have you decided to forego medications all together?
