Give me a break please…

Into my life a million raindrops are falling.

Due to  Effexor I am brain dead, food makes me ill and breathing is becoming difficult and I can’t sleep, terrible nightmares. (All side effects listed)

Today I find out someone has my credit card number. Luckily the transaction failed and hopefully won’t go through so that I have to go through Visa to get my money back. Idiots picked the wrong account. I am broker then broke. Card is canceled and will get new one tomorrow. Of course I had just used the card about an hour before.

Tomorrow I also have an appointment with the therapist who is leaving my life. My favorite one so far. It will be my first time driving since the procedure. Family is worried.

My cat is switching her allegiance to my son. She is finally coming to me again in short spurts during the week.  She must feel abandoned since the family moved me downstairs so I can’t fall down these steps anymore at least.


Tessa (and thank you for the continuing prayers and notes.)

    Everyone is different and meds are not one size fits all. Personally, I can’t tolerate most of them. Effexor made me manic and psychotic. Prozac made me flat. Zoloft made me think my brain was picking its way out of my skull. I hope you have a doctor who will listen to you and not just brush it off like mine did. If Effexor is making you feel this way, it’s doing more harm than good, in my opinion.

      Thank you. I took myself off of it and spoke to my APN nurse who prescribes my meds. This fiasco was at the hospital. They ignored me. Just one of the inmates, what do I know. Thankfully my nurse listens to me.

    Oh my goodness… I am so sorry, my dear Tessa. I wanted to encourage you with this verse:”For I said in my haste , I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.” (Psalm 31:22, KJV)
    A lot of the time, in our panic and distress, it feels like Christ has completely cut us off. But, “nevertheless,” He has NOT cut you off; He hears you, and is very near: “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; he rescues those whose spirits are crushed” (Psalm 34:18). Dear Tessa, I am praying for you: that you would find Jesus and His Great, Unfailing, Unending, Inseparable Love for you as YOUR RELIEF as you are going through all of this. It may feel and seem completely out of control, but you are safe, right in the palm of His Hand. He hears you, sister. He hears those crying out to Him on your behalf. He is moving and working.
    I encourage you to listen to “Be Still My Soul,” an old Lutheran hymn, especially the first verse.

    Jesus Loves You, my sweet sister and friend. All your fellow brothers and sisters do, too. “Cast your anxiety on Jesus, for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). He will see you through. ❤

    I love you, and am praying. (((Hugs)))
