Woeful Wednesday

by Aimee on April 15, 2009

It is time for another update on the home front. It is Wednesday morning and I am starting day 8 without an antidepressent. I had to slide back on and then space it out a little more. I only have one pill left in the house. I am trying to push through and not take it. I am still having a few issues with the withdrawal – most notably the brain buzz and a woozy wobbly vertigo type feeling which comes and goes. But I am not having the issues I was having a couple of weeks ago with the inability to speak, so that is a plus.

Other than that – I am doing better. So much better. I went to the doctor yesterday for a follow up and while I have an increase in pain, my lupus is still in remission. let me shout that from the roof tops – REMISSION!!!!!! I have a vit D deficency which is pretty significant, but other than that, I am doing well. I am not being eaten slowly from the inside by rouge white blood cells. YAY!!!!!

I have been out more. Knitting more. Interacting with people more. It has been nice! Awesome even!!!

I should throw a pic of Rozz or Eva or some yarn up, but hey, that is a little more work than I can do at the moment ;) What? you want pictures every day? *sigh*

YAY!!!! for you! Well done with anti-depressants and what wonderful news about the lupus (or lack of thereof). I love your description of not being eaten inside out by out blood cells.
