As Promised

I said a while ago that I would update my progress or lack of progress with my new med. I suppose now is as good a time as any.

I went through the three or four days of side effects that always come with starting something new. Then I was just going about my days still feeling kind of blah. Then it hit me. Shouldn't I be feeling better? Not just over the side effects, but feeling better.

I Googled Geodon (the new med) and saw that it can take several weeks to build up in my system. I also thought that maybe my dose isn't high enough. Then it occurred to me that maybe it isn't even the med I need for my issues. Surprisingly enough these three things made sense and helped me relax. I still don't feel better mentally though. At least I'm not worse. (I see my psychiatrist February 1 for a review. I guess I'll have to get back to you after that.)

Isn't it nice that things like fat burners are so much less complicated?

Like Queenie said, it's a crap-shoot, which is kinda scary! I hope everything works out with the new meds.

You'll find the right meds for you, it'll take awhile but there's bound to be something out there that'll work for you.
