Coming off the Meds

Hi everyone,
I haven't blogged in a while. I've actually written it in my Control Journal under my Afternoon Routine but I haven't been sticking to it. I don't feel well at the moment. Nothing serious. I'm coming off my anxiety/depression meds and the withdrawel stuff ain't fun. I've got vertigo and nausea and my emotions are all over the place. I'll be glad when this stuff is completely out of my system and I really don't want to go on meds again. Well I would consider St John's Wort if absolutely neccessary. My doctor says it works well and the side effects are a lot less. The plan is to learn to deal with my emotions on my own though. I am using Rescue Remedy which is really helping me through things at the moment. It's really good and natural, non-addictive and impossible to overdose on. Here's some info on it Without it I would probably send my family over the edge at the moment. Poor DH on Monday night when I was at my worse. Thankfully it didn't get really bad until after the kids were asleep in bed. I was bawling my eyes out and yelling at DH and I still don't what it was all about. Guess I was just catching on all the crying I didn't do when I was on the meds. My emotions are under control now. I'm really untra tired though. Don't know if that's related.
Well I'm over typing and I really want I nice hot shower.
Luv and Hugs

Hi Jo

I haven't been posting comments much of late - just haven't had the time or brain space "O). Thought I would drop you a quick line and say I will be praying for you as you come off your meds! Women's hormones are bad anyway I reckon so I am totally thinking of you as you and your family struggle to adjust!! All the best! And I find the words "praise God, praise God etc etc etc etc as many times as needed helps... well it stops me from yelling stuff I wish I hadn't said later "O) Hugs to you
