Things have been a little topsy-turvy lately.
I have one more week left of “tapering off”, and then, for the first time in almost 14 years, I will no longer be on anti-depressants. YAY!
But in-between dealing with the side effects of getting off this medication I have also been dealing with the SURPRISE! Guess-what-I-found-hiding-underneath- once-I-worked-through-all-the-stuff-that-caused-the-depression- unexpected-additional-pop-up-feature?
That’s right. An EXTRA BONUS LAYER of triple-protection-strength ANXIETY. F*%@.
But then yesterday I was talking to an acquaintance of mine who felt inspired to share the following information with me:
“You know, I have all my jeans lined up in my closet going from my favorites to my least favorites. This pair is #4. Tomorrow, I’m wearing #1.”
And I no longer felt quite so alone.
