This all spoke to me in terms of what a lot of introverts go through so I thought I'd blog about my experience in case that helps anyone else out there. Our brains are so powerful they can create physical reactions to stress, trauma, and just being in survival mode for so long. This of course is just my experience and my thoughts, if anything rings true for you please talk to your doctor! I think you'd be surprised how many of them are also introverts. Also find a doctor with which you do feel comfortable talking. This was a big thing for me! I like my doctor, she's easy to talk to and relates to the whole introvert thing because she is too. As a bonus the clinic has eCare so I can see results, email questions, make appointments without having to make phone calls - an introvert plus.
I have just started the anti-depressants. She wants me on an SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor). I think of it like retraining my body to recognize and use serotonin (It is believed to help regulate mood and social behavior, appetite and digestion, sleep, memory, and sexual desire and function. ~Medical News Today). I just started and it takes a few weeks to kick in. My hope is to have some results and experiences that you all can relate to if I can keep up with the blogging. My doctor feels this anti-depressant will help me focus and get a step up so that I can take over from there.
That morning, before I saw her, I was thinking "I know I need to get into a higher energy flow to attract the higher energy flow things I want and need in life, but it's a catch 22. If I just had a way to get a step up, see some progress...." I can make things better!
