Okay, for all the bitching and complaining I did in the last post, I’m doing okay now. Titrating down may be painful for a day or two, but that’s it.
I can handle a day or two of pain — especially in the name of expanding our family. That’s called having the courage of your convictions.
My psychiatrist and I have worked out a plan where I’m going to be coming down 10 mg a month, every month, until I’m off Cymbalta. And then, we go for the Nortriptyline. That means that 9 months from now (April 2013), I ought to be free of anti-depressants. By that time, I also ought to be fully on Lamictal and off of Topamax.
I guess Adam’s 2013 birthday present could be the ability to start trying for a child, if everything goes as planned. 🙂
Right now, I’m trying to get better at the day to day management of basic life skills: getting the dishes, the laundry, the shopping — all of it done for just me and Adam. I know things will get massively more difficult once a baby enters the picture.
This morning, I’ve got grocery shopping to do. Fortunately, I’m not feeling any auras, and my legs seem to be cooperating despite the fact that we broke Paleo all weekend.
Today, I’m determined to get right back on the wagon, to add more to the Paleo Compendium, and to meal plan for this week. Nothing good happens with food without some planning.
Anyway, I hope that everyone is having a very good Monday, and that you are all doing and feeling well! ❤
