Welcome to the Healing Well family - you have found a great, supportive community. We are here to support and help one another through anything. Feel free to come here to vent, tell us your success stories or just to talk. That's what we are here for.
Yes, going through these steps (big or small) is exhausting and I think many of us have had the same type of experience that you did. But I don't consider it to be a setback, it's just a way we react to what we have done. I feel that it's so emotionally draining to going through these steps that we just need a little something to help us through and if it's meds, then so be it. I know I take the meds after I have had an outing (most times, I even take it before the outing to help myself get through it) because I am so stressed out from the experience. So please don't feel that it's a setback because it really isn't - it's just our body's way of reacting to this experience.
Keep posting and I look forward to getting to know you better.
