Kia ora and thank you for following my blog via WordPress or via Twitter (1100+ in total) I really appreciate it. I just hope my experiences with medications come in handy one day.
So I have been tapering off Abilify for the last 10 days and it’s going well, I hope to be off it within the next week. This medication just didn’t work for me when was prescribed it a month ago, it caused my dry skin to worsen, depression to worsen and gave me anxiety. Now hat I am nearly off the medication I feel much better.
However, as I spend a lot of time alone at home due to not working at the moment I have started to become very bored. I have no motivation to go outside, anxiety prevents me from going. Which reminds me I start anxiety group therapy next week which I am both looking forward to and dreading at the same time. I just don’t know what to expect.
So in a nutshell I am getting by at the moment, I feel OK but not great, and depression is still about in small doses.
