To everyone who is not okay in isolation: it’s not your fault. Your nervous system is in overdrive and you’ve not learned how to manage it. This is a radical experience that many are not ready for. Stay online and connect. It’s better than nothing.
 

We are communal beings meant to live with others. This has already been decimated with the breakdown of the village, community and family. People living alone in urban settings might be considered an abomination with justification. I’m so sorry if you’re in such a circumstance.
 

this too shall pass
 

Getting angry at those who don’t have the nervous system capacity to stay inside isn’t the answer…we need to provide support for those who are most vulnerable. Of course, it won’t happen this time around ..no one knows what is going on and it’s cool to blame anyone we don’t understand.

thank you for posting this! 

Currently taking Ramapril (blood pressure) 5 mg twice a day

Omeprazole 10 mg AM and 20 mg PM  (the taper has gone nowhere after the first cut)

Famotidine   once a day (and I still needs tums sometimes)

magnesium 200 mg at night

as of yesterday 2 fish oil capsules "EPA-DHA 1000"

 

off Lexapro as of 5/2018  - last dose had been 5 mg every other day for a couple years

 

highest dose had been 20 mg at which point I was diagnosed with Bipolar II, which went away when I cut the lexapro down to 15 mg. 

 

I spent years on Paxil before Lexapro (can't remember dose), briefly on Effexor and Abilify and others I have forgotten. in fact, when I was diagnoses with BPII I was put on all kinds of things which made me feel so bad I stopped them cold turkey within maybe 3 or 4 weeks, thank goodness. since then I've known these pills were terrible and I weaned down the Lexapro with zero help or support over I'm not sure how many years.
