Tapering off — still on it
September 27, 2020 § Leave a comment
It’s day nine since I stopped taking Trinicalm Plus (Trifluoperazine and some other stuff) for my anxiety and depression. Don’t know how I got this far but I have.
With my system still adjusting to the absence of the drug, yesterday night at our friends’ place, some slightly spicy dinner set off my heart beating faster for a bit. Added to the craving to go back on the drug.
Had a long discussion with my therapist today about the tapering off effort, which helped. Made me comfortable with the idea that I can go back on the medication if I really need to. That actually helps with staying off it.
The week ahead will be a great test of how well I can hold up. Because I’ll have to work and produce decent enough stories.
