So, I have been kind of quiet in Blog land lately and the reason for that is the withdrawal has hit me. I mentioned in my earlier post that it’s no picnic withdrawing from medications and in fact I have been out of it for the last couple of days. My body is experiencing fatigue, anxiety, loss of appetite, appetite for high carb. foods, headaches, body aches, irritability, nausea, and, oh yes, BRAIN ZAPS. Brain zaps are aptly named because when you are experiencing one it feels as though your mind is being “zapped” by lightning, you’re short circuiting, and you have an excruciating headache. I never knew what to call these until I started looking up my symptoms and found that other people have experienced this phenomenon. Who would have known? Hopefully, these will go away soon.
Thanks for reading,
