Allez, on avale les p'tites Smarties

1er décembre 2007

Open the bottle, take the pill, drop it in the mouth and wash it down with water. Repeat. Repeat, repeat, repeat for 13 years. Lithium, Tofranil, Synthroid, Wellbutrin, Manerix, Topamax…Bipolar disorder, depression, headaches, migraines, thyroid dysfunction…

Tomorrow morning I will take the last dose of antidepressants I have. Goodbye Manerix !

In a couple of weeks I will take my last Topamax. Goodbye Topamax.

I finally get to have my emotions back. My doses were higher since 2005 because of my depressed state. I had been harassed at work, I lost faith in my job and my future, my fiance just up and left, my cat died. I lowered the dosage to get some emotions back and now I get to finally have my life back.

Being bipolar was getting heavy. It was okay while I was sick but now that I am better, this box I’m in just doesn’t work for me.

All of this is okay with the psychologist and the psychiatrist. Sigh…no more pills. Wow.
