The first thing that I did was to get rid of all the pills that the doctor had subscribed for me. As I wasn’t able to sleep, he gave me Xanax to use at night, Ascitolopram to use every morning to get me in a better mood and Lexomil to use 3 times per day. Lexomil was to calm me down because I was panicking since I didn’t know what had happened to me. I always loved life, I like to live and move forward but the pills knocked me out completely. I was very tired and I didn’t have the will to live anymore. That is the reason why I stopped taking the pills. But if you have treatment and it works well for you then you shouldn’t stop and it is not good to stop suddenly anyway.
Second thing, I started to run every morning, it didn’t matter how stressed or how bad I felt, the first thing that I did and that I still do now, is to get up and to make my bed nicely so that I won’t want to get back into it. I put on my running clothes and I get out of my house and run for 30-45 minutes, depending on how fast I do it. I have chosen my running route and I always go the same way.
