So as you all know, I stopped all meds Thursday since they made me feel horrible. I'm doing great. Actually I haven't been as happy in a while. I'm enjoying this very much. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from me.
I seen my therapist today and told her about our plans to have baby, and I told her I stopped my medicine. She said she thinks I will be a wonderful mom. She was also happy that I have not given up on meds for good. Just for now. So just as I suspected I must schedule with my prescribng doctor tomorrow, of course it takes a couple weeks to get in.
Our plan is to get my moods stable first, so I suppose a little more trial & error w/ meds then I can stop them once we start trying to conceive and restart them once I have the baby. That way I'm not switching a bunch of meds right after I have the baby, and I'll know just what medicine works. I think this is a perfect idea.
So I guess I'll be trying something else. But I'm waiting until after I come home from vacation to start anything.
I'm very pleased with my appt. today. She was very supportive of my decision. Unfortunately, she told me that we only have 2 appt's left because she is going to a Kaiser in a different location. She is a resident now and has found a full time job over an hour away. I'm sad that she wont be my therapist when I finally do have a baby. It's so hard for me to find someone I like and can open up to.
I don't know what they will prescribe next and am a little nervous. But this time I will be very clear with my doctor about what I will tolerate and what I will not.
Wish me well.
