Mental health check: I was contemplating for a good while if I wanted to say anything about the below, but came to conclusion that I want this out here.
As some of you know, around Christmas time my mental health was getting worse. I made a decision to rang my local GP, who prescribed me new meds which I started around New Year’s.
My mental health got even worse, it felt like the last bit of joy was sucked out of my soul. I could sleep all day and eat.
I felt like I was on the edge 24 hrs a day.
So, about a week later I had a chat with my own doctor who agreed with me not to continue taking those meds. She prescribed me new meds again, which I am ought to get today.
I have been med free now for almost week and the side effects for taking and not taking the meds are finally getting better.
Each day seems brighter. Have even been in the mood to take a selfie or two, do my make up and all that sort of things. I have managed to smile and even laugh. Had face chat with my mom without wanting to end the call after first 30 seconds.
I am making a decision to go on without meds, see how I get on. And if I feel like it doesn’t work out, I will start the new medication.
Be easy on yourself peeps 🖤
