I Am Officially No Longer A Lexapro Ho, Whoo Hoo!!!

Hey folks, I got a song for ya to sing: (to the tune of Happy Birthday – the real version, not the Stevie Wonder MLK version. I hate that crap. I mean, I like the real song but I don’t like to hear it sung at a regular birthday party. It just…rankles.) Congratulations to me, […]

I Am Happy Today and You Can’t Touch This

I have no idea WHY I am in such a good mood. I think…it’s a whole bunch of things coming together. Oh wait. I AM pissed about one thing. So I told you my doctor wrote to me to tell me that my iron levels were dangerously low. And she asked me a few questions, […]

Yes I Can Still Count

I CAN count, but sometimes I get lost… I was trying to remember how many days ago I started the Lexapro Withdrawal Plan and I’m pleased to report that it’s been NINETEEN DAYS! With really no side effects to speak of. I am now on 2.5 mg of the stuff and after this we go […]

So What Happened to the Lexapro, Ho?

Some of you might be wondering what is happening with my Lexapro weaning plan. I’ve been pretty silent on the subject of late. And that’s because…it’s been going GREAT. I was taking 10 mg as my regular dose. I went down to 7.5 mg and took that for about 10 days. Now, I am on […]

Day 3? I Think…

Is it Day 3? Or was yesterday Day 3? I can’t even frigging keep up. You’d think, given the carefulness with which one has to wean off of this crap, that I’d be taking better records of the days… Well, yesterday was…ok. For most of the day I felt fairly normal, but towards nighttime I […]

The Fork in the Fallopian Tubes

I went in for my annual GYN appointment the other day. I’m trying out a new practice. It’s a weird move for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE my former doctor, but she’s in Connecticut, which means every 6 months or so I’m driving through 3 states to see her. It’s getting to be a […]

Day 2

Well, here we are on the morning of Day 2. The good news is that I woke up without a headache, which is a huge surprise because the BAD news is that I slept like total and complete shit. Can you explain to me how it is that I can take TWO ibuprofen PM – […]

Rough Seas Ahead

Okay, full disclosure here: the post in which I said that it was time to bid Lexapro adieu, I wrote that yesterday, but didn’t publish it until today. Meaning that last night was the first night in which I reduced my dosage of Lexapro. Meaning that today was the first day of dealing with it. […]

Time To Say Goodbye

Sigh. I’ve decided that I am going to try to wean myself off of the Lexapro. I don’t think it’s working anymore, and…I don’t want to continue taking it just because NOT taking it for a while will cause withdrawal symptoms. I’m not sure that this is the BEST time of year for me to […]

Negative Numbers

That would describe my appetite right about now: it’s in negative numbers. Not only do I not want to eat, but I feel like I want to throw up. Except it’s hard to throw up when you haven’t eaten. I managed to cook this morning, though: pancakes (I make mine from SCRATCH, thank you) and […]
