Active again!

In case anyone is still reading, I’m back. Unfortunately I have depression and my illness required that I be hospitalized. I apologize for my abrupt disappearance.

New posts to follow!

      Didn’t see this until now…my depression and anxiety gets the better of me a lot too. This past year, it’s really rode me down, along with endometriosis, a disease of the female organs that causes scar tissue to form at random. It’s very painful. I also have ovarian cysts, which burst at random, which means I can expect unpleasant shooting pains at any time. I’ve been seeing an OBGYN specialist for this, as well as two different psychiatrists. I’m currently on several different types of anxiety/anti-depressant medication. Xanax for panic attacks (it tastes like wet chalk, so I avoid it when I can), Clonazepam for daily anxiety (6mg a day, spaced out in 2mg intervals), and 20mg of Celexa at breakfast. I also have tizanidine 4mg for muscle relaxation to help the spasming muscles in my uterus relax. I turned down pain medication, because while being addicted to benzos sucks, being addicted to opiates is worse. I was addicted once, and never again. It was tempting as hell to just accept all that vicodin, but I didn’t want to fall off the wagon and set a bad example for my girls. It’s tough having an illness…especially when you try to get people to understand why you don’t do what you sometimes said you were going to. Pain sucks! Anxiety medication causes memory loss! ><
