Started treatment Tuesday Feb. 2 I am writing this to describe my experience and the healing process in hopes that it will be helpful to others and I will have a record.
Day 1 - opened the first bottle, filled my 7 day pill case and stared at it for a few minutes. A little bit hesitant as I have shied away from taking any form of medication for many years. Then I took it. It was a gorgeous day, so after getting set up with SIM card and Bus pass, I went for a walk along the Hobart Rivulet. By the time I got to Cascade Gardens I was a little tired, so I took a short nap. Only side noticeable side effect was vivid dreaming and waking up with a start. Otherwise, sleep was normal.
Day 2 - spent today at the Botanical Garden. Lovely and I felt very energized. I noticed some sensitivity in my left eye when I got back to the hotel, but it went away quite quickly. Fortunately, I have some very dark sunglasses that I will wear tomorrow. I feel upbeat and energetic tonight.
