Today I am thankful for Cipralex and other professional help that's open to me, such as the Canadian Mental Health Association.
No drug is a wonder drug. I've struggled since August 2011, when I began taking Cipralex, and while I've made incredible leaps and bounds, a lot of that has been me pushing, straining, fighting, learning, and coping. Cipralex calms the racing thoughts, giving me a strengthened springboard from which to heave myself from. It gave me some unpleasant side effects at first, but those are long gone now.
It helps me. It doesn't fix everything, but it helps me as much as it can. And I'm very thankful for that.
And I have so many programs available to me. I don't feel alone any more and I feel as though I can easily reach out and grasp someone's hand to further save me from this drowning.
