Bonne Chance is doing well, although progress is still slow. Here he is enjoying a nap and looking very handsome. If I warm a piece of raw chicken, he will let me pet him for about a half hour, purring the whole time.
It seems many of those side effects I was having, were related to a slight overdose. Just because the old med wasnt working anymore, doesnt mean it wasnt still active in my system. So it would have been better to wean off of it, instead of cold turkey. Which I knew, but willingly ignored.
But then they started me on the new med at twice the recomended starting dose. It could have been a lot worse, so Ive been lucky. Things seem to be stabilizing in that department now.
As for the desired effect? I still cant say, but so far Im flat. That kinda makes everything harder, not really caring one way or another about anything. In its way its good to no longer wish to be hit by a bus in between bouts of homicidal rage. But I still wonder why there isnt some better treatment for depression, in this age of scientific marvels every minute.
