Vroom! Vroom!

Where's all this energy coming from? Got off work early yesterday and, after watching the Casey Anthony trial (I admit I'm hooked), I did grocery shopping ... and three loads of laundry ... and walked over to Bed, Bath and Beyond to put the finishing touches on my friend's John birthday present and pick up replacement curtain rods.

I think it's because I'm weaning myself off Lexapro. The anti-depressant was, at one time, a godsend for me. One of the values of this blog is I can look back on who I was, and how much I once hurt. Once I began taking anti-depressants, I was able to pack my emotional baggage and move away from The Stoney End, so I'd never diss taking meds.

But that was nearly four years (and tons of weight) ago. My body has adjusted, at least emotionally, to the new hormones levels. So it's time to move on.

  1. You go, Gal! After reading about your experience, I talked to my own doctor. she's not ready to eliminate the meds completely, but we've cut the dosage in half to see how that goes.
