Baby Steps

I think I want to write again, but I don’t know where to start. How can I quantify the upheaval and instability of the past few weeks? The seemingly mad tumbling from problem to problem?

Not a fun week.

Pretty scary experience actually.

Still not sure if I can actually blame that on the Veena (doesn’t that sound much nicer than a multisyllabic mouthful like venlafaxine?), but when I later Googled “venlafaxine withdrawal” I found emotional instability listed as a symptom 😕 Anybody feel able to comment?
