I usd to write positive thoughts with a marker on 3×5 cards and post them on the wall with a circle of masking tape behind it.
That way I read it every time my eyes swept the room and I would get positive reinforcements every time I read them. Try it, it works!

Checking in…
I am doing much better with my CBD on board. Anxiety handled.
No more signs of the wired brain either. How strange that I would again get withdrawal symptoms when my last dose was January 2018. But I did twice in the last 6 months. Bright Wings

@Jake
Remember, I didn't have any idea there would be withdrawal…any withdrawal…
I found this place about 3 months after my last dose…because I started researching withdrawal symptons for Effexor. Gosh, I took it for 33 years….

Yes, well if you click on my name you will see I have been here on this site for a while…
I have had other things on my plate this year to write much here, I've been writing on other pages Mayo Clinic Connect.
My friends are entirely capable of holding down the fort here. I just jump in when we get someone who thinks they know how to do this weaning…their way….then I share what happened to me.
Listen and believe or not, it's your body and your life….and consequences.
.
I will give a brief update though….
The anxiety I have been feeling as a result of no Effexor is being handled by the CBD….when I have it. Still having trouble getting it from the company….can't remember my password….going to have to reset the whole account…oh well…
.
I went to my family reunion….I knew in advance I was taking a tremendous risk by going….well because it was MY family…and because of risking a tremendous flare/relapse of my MS.
The temps ranged just below 94….don't know about heat index…
We had 30 family members show up…16 did not.
It was extremely successful for recovering relationships…
We all had a great time…
.
And I took one of my healing friends with me, I didn't trust myself to drive from Missouri to Ohio, having had a TIA in March. I don't have a long attention span at times and I just didn't trust my ability…
So Anne had a great time finding fossils in the park and sharing them. She was also there to pray over my family and be a helper/healer.
She did a tremendous job.
We had great food, all coked over the biggest firepit I have ever seen. Oh, giggling, I had been wondering if I should bring my crockpot….then the night before we left we learned it was primitive camping. IE no water and no electricity. Yikes!
.
I was proactive, sharing with folks ahead of time, I didn't have much energy and having hosted the family for 25 years at our lake lot, and not feeling well, I would not be the one jumping up to do things…It was surprisingly effective.
.
On the way home, with Anne driving the 550 miles, about an hour from home, my brain became so messed up from my MS, I couldn't even understand the words Anne was saying….Then the colors started in my brain…NOT A GOOD SIGN.
.
Long story short, Anne reached out her hand, laid it on my neck and kept it there for a while…
Relapse ended!!!!!!!!
Gosh, I knew she was way more advanced than I am in healing skills and I am no slouch. But I never dreamed she could do anything like that…
.
She learned these skills at a class called Mesa…it teaches Pruvian Shamanship. So, long story short, I am now signed up for the first class in October. The classes are 6 months apart, a series of 3.
.
Anne got our medicine man of our tribe to agree to pay for the first class. $430. I will cover the next classes. These skills will be used to heal our tribe, that's why he is covering the class.
.
So, one more thing to add. I was also Leary of attending the reunion because of fear of past abuse issues popping up…well, that happened too.
.
So folks, I have more internal healing to do…it seems I am no longer alone, more personalities have emerged. For those of you that don't know me, I had tremendous abuse as a kid. Click on my name and read…
Big sigh, well I got all those other personalities healed…I will do this also. The class in October will rip me apart and put me together again in 4 days, Anne assures me…I trust her….She will attend with me…
.
While I am not thrilled to be doing this work again, I have the skills…I know how to heal all those littles that were created so long ago, I can do it again.
I am winning…Bright Wings
