Fiona has been a great smile inducer :)
As you may have noticed, I've not written here for almost two months now. I apologize for my long and unexplained absence...
After a recommendation from my family doctor, and after talking about it with my therapist, we decided that I would try to (slowly) let go of my antidepressant. In the first week everything was going well, but after a while things got more complicated. I think I can say I didn't see it coming. Suddenly I felt as if I had fell fast and deep into the dark well of desperation I was overemotional and embarrassingly needy. My habits - especially my sleeping habits - went out of whack.
So we eventually decided to revert this decision, and I'm now back on my medication. After PhD completion, I'll give it another try. Slowly I've been feeling calmer and more grounded. And now I even felt like writing again.
The thing is, this whole experience was scary. I must confess that I'm now a bit afraid that, without medication, I'm doomed to emotional chaos. And this experience also made me think about how fragile our mental balance can be, so dependent on the chemical workings of the brain...
Anyway, I'm definitely more positive, and I'm also back to blogging.
Next week I'll be away for 4 days, on what shall be known as my tiny 2013 summer vacation. I promise I'll be back with beautiful pictures :)
See you soon.
