Back in Business

Well, the 19 day stretch of stability I had been experiencing has come to a screeching halt.

By the time Corey got home I was yelling at David Tutera on My Fair Wedding on tv, throwing the remote down and, with gritted teeth, growling, “I can’t watch this anymore!”

(Irritability. Usually I gobble that crap up.)

But hey, those 19 days were pretty spectacular. It wasn’t like I didn’t do anything too far out of my comfort zone, and it wasn’t that I got a lot done (though I did clean my particularly messy bathroom) but I felt relaxed and at ease for all 19 of those days. To me, the stretch felt a lot longer than it really was, though possibly because this was the longest stretch of stability I’ve experienced in over two years.

My anxiety has made a pretty intense comeback as well, I’ve been doing a lot of “catching up” with my breathing (what feels like I’m not getting enough air, and having to take a long deep breath to catch up).

It looks like it may be time to start up with the medication trials again. More to come on that front.

  1. Thanks for sharing. You’re not alone. Hey, at least you had a good run. I hope the next one comes soon. Hang on. We care.!

  2. Sarah, mine that stretch for nuggets and clues to what made it work. I’m toying with a self-help approach based on fanning our exceptional healthy times into full-blown “ordinary healthy times.”
