Every now and then I mess up my meds. I guess my insurance company is right. I guess I do need help taking my meds. This weekend when I did my meds for the week I forgot to put in the Effexor. By this morning I thought I was dying. Or at least I highly suspected it. I thought about leaving work to go to the ER- but that would take too much energy, and I didn't have any.
I felt exhausted, faint, light-headed, and all tingly. All of my muscles ached. My stomach hurt and I had diarrhea. I had horrible mood swings. But no tingling on the top of my head or feeling feverish- so I didn't think of the Effexor. Every time I leaned over I thought I would pass out. I thought for a while it was low blood sugar- I must have gained 10 pounds today eating.
But then, driving home- it hit me. This could be Effexor. And I was praying that it was. And then I checked my med box- and it was. I am so glad. I immediately swallowed 2 pills.
If I ever have to get off of Effexor they will have to send me to rehab. I don't know how I could ever get off of it.
I'm so glad I didn't go to the ER. That would have been really funny.
