I went to a check up at the doctors this week and we talked through how I have been feeling. After a little chat the Dr has recommended that I start to wean myself off of my medication.
This is a big decision for me, as much as I want to come off of the pills, I worry about how this will make me feel. I don’t want to become reliant on them and it would be great if I can cope without them but still I have spent the last few days worrying.
I collected my prescription at the same time as my appointment and I have decided to wean off the tablets but keep a months supply in case I feel like this isn’t a good move for me! The Dr has said this is fine and I can keep them as a safety net which I hopefully wont need!
I am going to keep an eye on my mood over the next few weeks and make sensible decisions about how well I am coping.
I have always said that I am happy to take them if they help me and I don’t think people should be ashamed if they need the medication to feel better, much like anyone with a medical condition, sometimes it needs treating and if they help you then keep going. I like the idea that I am better and I am certainly feeling stronger that I have for years so I am willing to give it a go!
Wish me luck!!
