Ok so I haven't posted in awhile and just an update from my old post, I finally visited my therapist and it went pretty well. He perscribed me meds and I've been taking them for almost 3 weeks now. I feel so much better and it's mainly because I've been sleeping regularly now and that's thanks to my meds. I used to experience Dpdr most at night before sleeping so I'm just so thankful that I feel way better. I'm not sure if its 100% the meds doing the work (Im taking 10mg of brintellix) or the fact that I havent drank in 17 days!!! I am actually very surprised that i was able to not drink this long. (Let me be honest, it freakin sucks being sober, but trust me, its for the best i guess.) But i came here tonight to ask: do you think I should drink again? To be honest Ive been craving for it so bad and my doctor said its fine to have a few, but Im just too scared to risk it. But let me know if any of you had no side effects when taking brintellix and drinking alcohol.

Anyways, I just want to say, dont give up and there is so much hope (and you dont necessarily need meds) but i would say they have helped me so far... (and i was skeptical about it at first, but look how it turned out hehe) and I am not 100% cured and i still feel sensations from time to time so i Just keep myself busy and exercise regularly. (Not too much because when I do get tired, I sometimes feel dpdr)

Have a great day guys, share love and positive thoughts. I promise it gets better. Life is so beautiful and filled with so many things to do. Be there for others who are lost and don't know what to do, I reached rock bottom and i am slowly climbing my way up out of this hurdle in my life.
