Just remember this Machelle, even though you have a set back, it does not mean that you are starting all over again with your recovery. It's simply a set back and you will get back up from it. My therapist is always telling me this, as well as telling me to take things a day at a time, when I have a set back and I've had several, especially with the meds. But he is confident that I will get through it and continue to grow.
I believe the same will happen for you. Get your meds straightened out, try to take care of your recent stressors and slow down a bit during the holiday madness and take it all one day at a time. You will get through this - just be as confident in yourself as possible.
Keep letting us know how you're doing. Don't forget that you can come and vent any time you need to - I know I have!
