Oh, Well...

I was on Lexapro, for my depression. It worked wonders! But ever since January, I realized that I had no need for it anymore. I kept forgetting to take it! :-o

And so, I told my therapist this and asked her if it was time for me quit it soon. She insisted that I was not... that I should give it a six more months... even though, I've been taking it since the end of May 2008. So, I did try... but kept forgetting to, because I don't need it! =p

So, it's been over two weeks and I haven't taken one single pill. And nothing terrible happened! Well, in my life, some stress has happened... but I never once fell into depression. I am awesome still! Whoo-hoo! I am afraid to tell my therapist this, as she will freak-out! But, I'll have no choice to, this week. Because it's time for her to renew my prescription and she's going to want to give me meds... but I already have three weeks worth, just sitting around and collecting dust.

If I could lie, I would take the extra meds and pretend that I'm still in need. BUT, she's going to ask me an direct question of, "Do you need more meds?" And... I can never lie... of course, I'm going to tell her the truth, hunch my shoulders, and wait for the harsh tones to begin. :-/

Not to be negative, but some of the drugs stay in your system for a week or more after you stop using them, so if there aren't any serious sideffects maybe you should take her advice.

give em hell!
