Mamavation Monday: I’m Doing This!

Happy Labor Day, Mamavation Monday, back-to-school, etc.! ;)

Last week, I blogged a few times about how I was completing my final withdrawal from Effexor (antidepressant taken for PPD) as I finally went down to 0mg last week Saturday.

It. Was. A. Nightmare.

But I’m on the other side of that nightmare now.  I’m doing this!  I’m still a bit more tired than usual, can sometimes cry in an instant, and still experience the brain shivers.  But I’m doing this.  And it’s almost over.

As I finally start to regain my energy and my body starts to recover from the violent withdrawal symptoms of last week, I plan to start getting back into my routine of morning walks with C.  I don’t plan to pick that up to jogging again until next week.  I also want to focus on drinking lots of water to flush all the remaining toxins out of my body.

What are your goals for the week, friends?
