Medications & Monogamy


The full-dose did it’s thing. I fell asleep more quickly, slept in later, and had energy this morning. All this despite the fact that I awoke dozens of times in the middle of the night with disturbing thoughts. This Cymbalta has me thinking all sorts of bizarre things and I am growing tired of them. I do not like being awake in the middle of the night thinking… and having my brain add something vicious to the end of each thought like some immature adult adding “in bed” to the end of their fortune at Lin’s Garden.

Hopefully these side effects will wear off by Tuesday. If not, my follow-up with my doctor will essentially be the beginning of the end of my affair with Cymbalta. Makes sense. I’ve always been the monogamous sort. I’ve got heart-enough for one Daniel and one drug.
