What the bleep was that all about?

This week that has just passed was unbelievable. It was like anxiety was an entity that came into my apartment and curled up into a knot in my stomach. It was totally unexpected. The week before I had been feeling great. I had been to the gym every day, my medication seemed to be working like a charm. Once Sunday or Monday came of this past week I just didn’t know what happened! I could hardly shower, the ringing phone would send my stomach into knots, I didn’t even open my computer until today. I actually spent the entire week curled up in agony on the couch afraid of the phone, email, people, and just couldn’t do anything. I tried meditation, going for a walk, tidying up, but nothing worked, everything was unbearable! Finally,  it occurred to me on Thursday night what the problem might be. You see, one of my medications is very expensive so I decided last week that I would just take one every second day, you know, to save money. It didn’t occur to me until Thursday, well, yesterday that that could be the problem. I spoke with the pharmacist and he assured me that the drastic up and down that was happening from day to day was almost certainly the cause of my crippling anxiety. So let that be a lesson folks! Take medication as prescribed, I sure will, because that was unbearable! images

I feel like I can breath again!

  1. I’ve been wondering what you have been up to. Your absence was felt on this side. Oh, the dilemma of economics involved with the meds! It’s wonderful to read from you again. Your words are powerful. Here’s to more ups in your recovery.

    • Thank you so much! Wow, I appreciate your kind words 🙂 It was so weird. It came on so strong I didn’t know what was happening because the week before I was at the gym every day and then, BAM! Too bad it took me almost a week to clue in and ask the pharmacist! I won’t make that mistake again, it was terrible! Bless you!

  2. I missed your blog this week and wondered what happened. I’m so glad you are feeling better! I know if my husband forgets to take one of his meds. I can tell within about 4 hours. Amazing the difference it can make! Understand about the financial cost though.

  3. Thank God you figured out what was wrong! I had that happen to me w/ a med that I’d run out of and forgotten to renew. I have a weekly pill minder now that helps tremendously. I know in your case it was different from forgetting, but it does show just how vulnerable we are where meds are concerned! 😦 Welcome back! missed hearing from you.

    • I can’t even explain how intense it was. All I could do was lay on the couch in the fetal position with a know in my stomach. I am so happy to be free of that, it immobilized me! Thank you for you kind thoughts. I’ve missed checking your posts as well! I’ve been out of the loop for a week, like couldn’t even open my computer, for almost a full week! That is nuts for me. Bless you!
