i got really down, and feeling really really worse so i sort of pulled out of the forum for a bit. recently though my dr put me on xanax to sleep and night and lexapro to help with the depression. the lexapro hasn't done much, but the xanax is a godsend. i don't know if it will be this great this time, but i had 10 whole days of normalness. i hadn't felt normal for even a 1/2 a day in over a year. it was so nice to want to clean and go out.
most importantly this was a major rejuvenation, it only justified further those fears in my head arewrong. you know the ones that, maybe this is in my head, maybe i am being lazy, but how do i make it stop sort of thing. well, no i know when i feel good, or normal, i do not sit still, i clean constantly, i want to go out, i cook, i take my son places. it was awesome. i hadn't had that in sooo long. it is over now, but still, the fact that i had that short time period has given me such a better outlook on ths disease. thank you, for your support and positive talk on here. i truly think it helped.
i just got xanax again and i already feel tons better. don't know what it is, the dr says it's a combination of allowing me t sleep at night and relaxing tight muscle's and relieving spasms. or it could just be that it depresses the cns system therefore calming all those "over reactions".
