I started Prozac and Xanax last week in an attempt to finally address the sadness and anxiety I’ve been carrying around for the past 4 years. I can’t quite tell a difference yet but then again it has only been a week. Besides that, I’m on week 7 of individual therapy with a counselor through VCU. I have felt a tremendous shift in my state of mind since then. I’m very hopeful that these two steps (counseling and medication) will take me further forward and pull me out of the mud.
