Quick update on the tapering front. I made it the whole way through my first week without encountering a single crisis. Ok, definitely there were some tough moments, but for the most part it’s gone well, and definitely better than I expected. Today was my first day of alternating, so no medication this morning. Have to admit I do feel odd – the best way I can think to describe it is first trimester of pregnancy (nauseous, tired, mood swings) coupled with a few drinks (dizzy, giddy, disoriented). Not pleasant, but not anywhere near as nasty as it could be.

So plan for the next few days? Keep stress to a minimum. I’m going into town tomorrow for a mooch and to hook up with a friend. There’ll be more baking. There’ll be walks. There’ll be hanging out with Hubby and my kids, and hopefully tea and chats with a few more friends. And there’ll be this!

  1. So pleased for you that a week into changing meds it's going so well. Long may it continue. We're all rootingfor you. Is it next week that Theripist isn't around? Good luck with that.

    1. You're so good to remember! Yes, it is this week and so far, so good. I have an appointment scheduled with a therapist I've worked with before when she's been off, but I'm not actually sure that I'll need it now. I'm not going to cancel, just to be on the safe side, but am glad I've managed to get this far without needing her. I think the fact of knowing there's a safety net there makes it that much easier.
