I know it seems like all I do is whine, but this week has been a rough one for me. I finally got my psychiatrist to refill my Xanax prescription after three days of withdrawal symptoms. I even had to pay a visit to the ER one night.
The nurse there compared withdrawing from Xanax to withdrawing from cocaine. I wouldn't know about that personally. The cocaine, I mean. Some of the side affects of withdrawal I've experienced are hot/cold spells, insomnia, diarrhea, restlessness, shakiness, headaches.
The insomnia seemed to have taken the biggest toll as I literally didn't sleep for two nights. The second would be the dehydration from the diarrhea. Maybe all this detail is TMI. Anyway.. I got a full night sleep last night and have already taken a nap today. I've been drinking a lot of water, too. I imagine I'll be back to normal soon.. whatever normal is for me. *smile*
I'm going to take it easy for a couple days. Maybe browse some blogs for contests or promotional items. See what others have been up to since my short-lived absence. Maybe I'll take another nap first. I'll repost my exercise for comments as soon as I feel strong enough to get back on the bike.
