Reduced Dose


A week ago I wrote about how I was forced to think about quitting my medication which is used to treat my depressive disorder and anxiety disease. At that time I only had 5 pills left but couldn’t get new ones due to a serious supply bottleneck. So, I was forced to reduce my regular dose of 20mg down to 10mg, to have a few more days and to not discontinue too fast as this can have side-effects. Now I will write about what happened next.

Do you know these moments when you ask yourself what goes well at the moment, and what goes not so … Continue reading I’m Proud Because I Am Achieving Things I Thought I Couldn’t Achieve Anymore

The photo was shot in 2015 and it seems I never used it because the salad bowl was not completely in the frame. Now I cropped it on a way that I like the composition more. Next reason for this post is that I wanted to talk a bit about my running activity. To be honest, I didn’t run over the winter, mainly … Continue reading Staying Fit
