Encouragement

Recommended Posts

Just as fire refines silver in the smelting process, trials refine our character. They bring us a new and deeper wisdom, helping us discern

truth from falsehood and giving us the discipline to do what we know is right. Above all, these trials help us realize that life is a gift from

God to be cherished, not a right to be taken for granted. Joyce Meyer.

I listened to Joyce Meyer a lot when I was in WD. I had a set of tapes I listened to (yes, I said cassette tapes, this was 10 years ago lol, technology has changed).

 

Although today I regard myself as an atheist, her words were extremely comforting during my WD. She is a powerful speaker.

 

This is something I have said many times: find a positive frame of focus, such as listening to music, the lectures if Joyce Meyer or reading. This is akin to what Alto regards as flipping the script or mindful meditation. It isn't always easy to focus, but finding tools that pull yourself out if yourself and exercise your mind help you heal.

Thanks Whatever!

It is so hard to see an end to this suffering: people like you and Alto and others who devote their personal time to encourage and help others is such a blessing!

Can you tell me that it does get better: that all of these weird sensations in your head (headaches, fuzzy thinking, brain fog and low energy, anxiety) do go away eventually?

Yes Rosie they do. My energy and zest for life returned. I appreciate my health so much more now.

Thanks Whatever for that encouragement because sometimes you do wonder if you will feel like this for the rest of your life. :)

how long did it take for your zest for life to return?

You have to remember that I quit cold turkey!

 

I hate to quantify my process because everyone is different. My zest came back in about a year. But, I struggled with physical and cognitive impairment for at least another year, but it was not as intense.

I have been on and off ADs so many times in the last 3 and a half years that I feel so impaired cognitively: my hope is that my brain will return to the way it was.

I am now in full force peri menopause so it may not return to normal :blink:

The Pristiq gives me terrible night sweats especially during the weaning process.
