I took effexor for manymany years. It did good for me, I just recently switched to pristiq because I had to have such a high dose of effexor (375mg). I also take abilify which goes well with effexor. It is a mood stabilizer. That might be something you would like to think about
You will get through this, try not to be pessimestic about
what is going to happen. Let things just happen. You are underminding your self by thinking everything is going to turn out bad. ONe day at a time sweetie. That is the way to go. One moment at a time if you have to. I am glad taht you are seeing a counselor. It really does help a lot. I have been going for years. I do have a good counselor which helps. And I see a psychiatrist too.
I hope that this helps some. think good thoughts. Have fun, let him know that you tire easily. I think you deserve to have a great time at the lakehouse.
