Well, Friday came and went and I didnt start taking my Lexapro. I meant too....I really did...but for some reason i started feeling a little better on Friday evening and I slept better than normal too. Saturday i had a couple episodes of shortness of breath and some tightness in my head but it went away after I kept ignoring it and plugging along through the day. Sunday I felt great...almost comepletely normal...although I kept thinking "this isn't right, this must be the calm before the storm" but again I kept plugging through the day but was almost dancing around the house at the relief I felt. I had a little trouble getting to sleep last night but I finally did. I am even down to just 1/4 of an Ativan every other day...in a couple weeks I am hoping to be off completely. I just wonder of I am doing myself a disservice by not taking the Lexapro...but if I am not feeling as anxious as I was...and if I am not depressed when I am not anxious and taking a lot of ativan....why can't I try to work through this without an AD? I feel guily....like I might be upsetting my Dr.'s by not taking it. What do you think?
