By Jove, I think I've got it.
I've been taking the new med for almost 2 weeks now, and I think it's working. After a week of feeling and quiet and self-contained, then a few days of very low-level anxiety, I've found myself able to concentrate enough to read something more than a light fluffy novel. I've been able to plan several chores to do during the day and actually accomplish them.
It's a step in the right direction, and I'm glad to think I might be returning to my old self again soon.
I also blog at: Weight for Deb and BlogHer on Mondays and Saturdays.
