So, I managed to get my PCP to send in an order for 4 days of meds since my psych was out of the office. Did you know that Cymbalta is $7/day?!!! I don't know how people without insurance manage. The order from NextRx was in my mailbox when I got home that Friday night so I was covered no matter what, thank goodness!
I had also picked up my husband that evening for a surprise visit that weekend. I have to say that being with my husband really helped my depression and anxiety. It had been 2 weeks without seeing him.
It was my step-daughter's birthday the following week so we spent Sunday with her up at college. We had a nice lunch and took a lovely walk. She is such a love.
My pain meds make such a difference in my state of mind and cognitive clarity.
So, the stress of work and living apart, not taking my pain meds regularly, and other pressures seem to be contributing to my anxiety. I'm trying to take a bit more control over several issues and it seems to be working.
Just wanted to give you an update. Thanks for the warm thoughts. I hope to get back to some of you regarding your comments - it's taken me a while to get on track from my funk.
