Yeah - I had the dizzy spells with Effexor when I would forget my dose, and definitely when I went off the med, but am having nightly dizzy spells, nausea, etc. lately, regardless (apparently) of my medication dose.

My therapist and pdoc are very supportive in all of this. I told my therapist about the medication plan last night and she said she was okay with that because she knows my pdoc is keeping a close eye on me.

But I don't know at what point I'll get to stop taking meds - I forsee being on them for a long time at this point. I just don't know what's working anymore, so we're going to restart with a clean plate and work from there.

In the meantime, I'm actually feeling pretty optimistic about things - wishing I was in school (especially as I heard new students talking on the bus this morning on my way to work!), but knowing that I will be, again, at some point. And my therapist was really helpful last night, as usual. I see her again tomorrow night and then my pdoc on Thursday.

Do wish I could get a grasp on things a bit better though. I feel like life is slipping through my fingers...
