Not such a bitter pill to swallow.

So how has my first few days of medication withdrawal gone then? Actually a lot better than I thought after the initial hurdle!

I had a terrible couple of days feeling really dizzy, headaches and funny tingling as well as blurred vision. I felt awful and almost went back to full dose. However, I now sit here with mild dizziness and tingling in my head which also feels a little heavy but manageable. I think I may actually smash this and will be sticking with it. I almost didn’t but I am so pleased I didn’t give in too quickly. I knew it would be a difficult process but I’m hoping it will all be worth it.

My treatment actually comes to a close on Wednesday morning and I will be in a position to talk about the process I have been going through. My friends have already recognised that The Shellmeister is sneaking back slowly but determined. Following over 2 years of treatment I’m hoping I can finally say with certainty that it has reached its peak. Watch this space….


About mitsanuk

I left the RAF in 2015 following 20 years as a frontline paramedic. It has been an amazing career but then found myself suffering because of this. My blog exists as an outlet for me as well as a place for others to read and try to understand the mind of someone with PTSD. Please feel free to make comment on any post and lets raise some discussions on how we can help to end the stigma which surrounds mental illness. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please follow and share in the hope my experience will help others.
