Returning to normality
As the days and weeks pass I’m becoming more-and-more like my usual self. I’m keeping a close eye on the side effects introduced by certain medications too.
Bloating and inflammation
Perhaps some of the least pleasant of side effects are bloating and inflammation. For example, my stomach looking like it’s going to burst and both feet puffy with fluid.
Another annoying side effect is always wanting to be near the kitchen to get more food to graze on.
Enough is enough
There comes a time with any medication when the positives don’t outweigh the negatives. I’ve been finding the aforementioned side effects unbearable.
I feel like it’s time for dose reductions. I don’t want an overly extended recovery from my recent manic episode. Life is for living!
