I use lorazepam sparingly to deal with the anxiety that emerges in the morning. I usually need only one dose of 1 mg to do the job. This anxiety is not normal for me. I don't know what I would take if the depression itself becomes more severe and is accompanied by suicidal ideation. Maybe Abilify or Zypexa. I really hate to reintroduce something that causes weight gain and might cause some withdrawal effects upon discontinuation. I imagine there is still some Trintellix in my system that could possibly be preventing a relapse into my baseline state. 66 hour half-life. I discontinued it 6 days ago. However, the other drugs I'm taking might prevent a descent into a more severe depression. I am hopeful.

My high-school graduating class had its 40th reunion a few days ago. I didn't go. It would have been intellectually and emotionally destructive. This has been difficult for me to deal with existentially. I am having to reframe the way I see my life historically and change the way I live in the moment. I must alter my hopes, plans, and expectations for the future in order to live better in the present. Oh, well.
