So...For anyone who has been reading my blog lately about the Paxil withdraw, Sunday afternoon I hit a really bad spot with the withdraw.

I couldn't see straight, I was screaming for no reason. Just screaming, sitting on the toilet screaming! I was crying so hard I was hyper-ventilating. I truly felt "Mad" and like I was "going crazy". I was throwing things around the house. Screaming at the top of my lungs, wanted to punch anyone and anything, sobbing in complete and utter despair. I was dry-heaving, nauseous, my blood pressure was through the roof. I had blisters in my mouth, tongue and lips. I was shaking uncontrollably. I felt like I had the flu and was running a fever. I had my husband's cane up to him ready to hit him with it for him telling me I was crazy and he wanted his wife back.

I managed to drive myself to the Emergency Room at the local hospital and was hell-bent on them not discharging me until I was given my Paxil.

Everyone at the hospital agreed that I was suffering from Serotonin-Discontinuation Syndrome (Paxil withdraw).

After 3 hrs and 30 min., 3 social workers, 2 nurses, a nurse practitioner and a partridge in a pear tree...lol...They gave me a script to take to the 24 hr. CVS for my Paxil. ((INSERT ANGELS SINGING HERE... and my daughter and husband). WITHIN 1 HOUR I WAS CALM AND RETURNING TO NORMAL!

Will write more later. Just wanted to give you all a heads up!! DO NOT LET A DOCTOR TAKE YOU OFF PAXIL COLD TURKEY!!!

So as you know, today is Day 4 without Paxil.

If my husband asks me one more time what is wrong with me, they better just commit my ass! What is wrong with me? I've been on a high dose of Paxil for 8+ years and they stopped it cold turkey!

One minute I have insomnia, the next minute I'm so tired I am falling asleep at my desk. My body hurts, I'm dizzy, I have the dry heaves, one minute I'm crying, the next minute I want to cry but I can't cry, physically I can't cry. The next minute I'm euphoric and talking like Tommy Chong, the next minute I'm laughing and hearing a little man in my head talking, the next minute I'm screaming like a lunatic, the next minute I want to punch my husband in the face, the next minute the very sound of anyone's voice is like nails on a chalkboard.

I walk into work this morning and everyone says,"What's wrong Heather? Smile, Smile". Hey buddy, let me tell you where you can stick that smile okay! And while your at it, let me tell you what else you have done to piss me off in the past 10 years working with you!!!

I have finally told my co-workers, "hey, I'm going through Paxil withdraw can you just back off and don't talk to me at all?!!" FINALLY my one co-worker said, "Oh man, that explains it! My wife went through Paxil withdraw!!"

DUH! I mean with all of the internet options out there can't anyone just go and look it up and see how serious it is and that this is not at all fun for me?

Then on top of it all, they put me on my new med, "Lemictal" and I'm itching from it. AHHHHHH!!!

Thanks for letting me vent everyone.

Day 4: Paxil Withdraw morning. I woke up at 6:00 a.m. pretty psychotic. I went to the bathroom and started laughing cause the little guy in my head was like, "yo man, you're brain is malfunctioning". I kept talking like Tommy Chong on that 70's Show, and took my dog for a walk. He wouldn't go #2 so I'm saying to him, "Yo man, you gotta go cause I know you're gonna come in and Sh* on my floor and be like, wow man, I didn't know I had to go". Yeah at that point my husband heard me and is saying he wants his wife back. Went back to sleep for two hours and feeling better now :)

Our family uses Prilosec EVERY DAY!!

Many of you may know from my Facebook posts, my husband has MULTIPLE ailments.

For those of you who may not know him...meet John.

One of John's problems is he suffers from severe pain every day from heartburn and all of his different GI problems. Believe me when I say we have tried every product out there, both prescription and OTC. My husband's insurance no longer covers brand name PRILOSEC. It covers the generic, but not brand name. For 3 years straight I have been buying him the name brand because he swears the only thing that helps him is Prilosec.

I have fought with him to just take two of the generic. He said it does not work.The ONLY relief he can get is taking his PRILOSEC every day.

That's why this Mom recommends it to everyone! I have seen the pain he is in without it and let me tell you, it's not pretty!

If you would like to try Prilosec, you can get a free sample at the link below. I ordered mine! ~Hugz and savings, Heather

Prilosec OTC
Let's face it. We all need reminders. Life happens, every day. Isn't it nice that there's someone out there that wants to save you money AND remind you when new coupons are available? Ziploc, Glade, brand name products you use and are overpaying for!

Give it a try! What do you have to lose? Only savings to gain! Come back and let me know how you like it<3 ~Hugz and savings :) Heather

Life.

We all have this fairy tale growing up of being thin, and meeting prince charming. Of him getting down on one knee and asking us to marry him. He will ride us away on a white horse and we will live "Happily Ever After"..........................

(Insert screeching record here for those of us that are old enough to remember records! lol)

Then comes REALITY! We hit a certain age when we realize, we're never going to be "thin" enough, or "pretty" enough, or "smart" enough. We start feeling bad about ourselves and looking in the mirror thinking, "why can't I just look like ____________". We start comparing ourselves to everyone, and everything around us. In reality, this may be our Happily Ever After......

You may be 45 and still looking in the mirror saying that very same thing. I'm 35 and guess what? I'm still comparing myself to every other woman I see. It's really time consuming and so bad for us. Isn't it about time we wake up from the little princess fairy tale in our minds? I have spent sooo much time in life trying to be "normal" and have the normal life that I have missed the life in front of me now!!!

I don't want to waste any more time. God made me this way. Guess what world, I'm fat! Guess what world, I'll never be a super model. But isn't it time for that to be okay? I'm me. That's who God made me to be. Why do I try to put unrealistic expectations on myself only to fail because they are unrealistic and feel worse about myself. So...here's my plan.

Just for today, I'm going to love me for me. Just the way I am right now.
Just for today, I'm not going to compare myself to others.
Just for today, I'm going to break that negativity tape that plays over and over in my mind.
Just for today, I'm going to be ME!

Life......Interrupted.

Loving me AND YOU!!
~Heather
