Today I will start with 1/3 of the dose I had been taking.

I began stepping down off of my medication for anxiety last week.

Week 1, during which I took 2/3 of the dose, went well.

I am hyper aware of my emotions, trying to see if I notice significant differences or side effects.

This includes a small increase in my anxiety level.

I also have noticed I am more prone to cry than I have been in a while.

Staying the course and cautiously optimistic this process will be worthwhile.

Are you making any changes (big or small) in your life or daily routine this week?

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too.

Good luck. Hope the things you are more prone to cry at are for happy tears.

I’m wishing you all the best because this is a big deal. I’m hoping it goes smoothly. I would say my biggest change is trying to get back into working out again and it’s a huge struggle.

Wishing you luck. Remember to breathe through the emotions. The good thing is that they usually change! Don’t feel bad if you find it hard. I’m at the stage where I’m stepping up a medication (for pain), and hoping I can step down in due course too.

I’ve been on and off depression/anxiety meds a number of times over the years, and it sounds like you’re going about it the best way possible. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.
