doctors...and pharmacy's

Between last Friday and today, I think I have waited for a call from my Dr's office everyday, except Sat and Sunday.  Wow...I finally got the call I was waiting for and told my prescription was called in, so of course when I went today to pick it up...nope...not there.  The wait continues.
I have decided to go back on Cymbalta.  I do so after thinking about it for a couple weeks, and listening to my "self".  I am proud of the fact that I tried to go off of it, and did go off of it.  But I always told myself, if I felt as if I needed to, I would go back to it.  I am doing so, with no regrets... I know I can do it again, if I feel I can. 
I expect it will take some weeks to get back into my system, and I am sure some of the side effects I didn't like, will return...but so will some of the sadness and anxiety fade, and one day I will say to myself, "I feel better"...  I am looking forward to good results, counseling and now the medication... onward...


  1. I applaud your decision, made for all the right, all the best reasons. Life is short. Too short. And life is worth living to the best that we can live it. I see how far you have come in this last year and you have made such progress and so many changes and inroads. You will find that going back on this will just make all of that even won't fall by the've come too far. I love how you did this...the commitment you made to yourself and the realization that you can't do everything yourself..and you don't need to. There's nothing saying that you will be on cymbalta forever..but if you are? Is that such a bad thing? No.

    As for the doctor's office...40 lashes with a wet noodle for how long it took them to get back to you. The fact that the prescription wasn't ready? 40 lashes to your pharmacy!!!

  2. You go for it Kathy! It is a good decision for you and never feel guilty taking a helping hand in whatever shape or form. Let us know when that day comes when you can say 'I feel better' :)
