Over the past couple weeks I have been weaning myself off the anti-depressant, Lexapro. It has caused an unmentionable side effect and my doctor thought it was a good time anyway to see how I'd do without it.
I have been on one anti-depressant or another since my early twenties, due to family history and/or a chemical imbalance. They have been a lifesaver.
Lexapro has been an especially good one because of it's anti-anxiety component, which helps with the OCD.
I took my last pill today, and it will take a couple weeks until it is completely out of my system.
I wonder what's going to happen.
Will everything be ok? Am I going to be normal?
Will I start rotating more items in the house? Will I start lining things up again? Will I pull out more hair? Will the intrusive thoughts increase? Will my obsession with everything square take on a whole new meaning?
Only time will tell.
