It has been a long time since I have felt so good. I did not realize, until yesterday that a lot of my joint pain issues was due to depression until after my psychiatrist upped my antidepressant from 20 mg to 40 mg this past Wednesday. Even Wednesday, taking my 2nd 20 mg tablet, I was beginning to feel a little better. I believe the medicine was not working effectively at 20 mg anymore and the increase has been an improvement so far and it is only Saturday.
Anyway, to be honest here, I have not been to my SDA church in so long that I decided to venture out to church today, after having an absence that I can explain was due to depression, stress, and a need of a med change or increase. I got to church and saw all the other members that attended this morning, and realized how alert I felt and how welcomed I was after a long absence. I do have my favorite people I love to see and seeing some of them again was an awesome feeling. That feeling was somewhat unexplainable too actually. I felt warm fuzzies again and those warm fuzzies took a long time to return. It just felt good returning back to church.
Right now I am taking it one day at time and taking my medicine every day and keeping track of my ood shifts.
