    My Narcissistic Husband Decided to Drink Again... (of course, it’s all my fault in his eyes 😒)

    My Narcissistic Husband Decided to Drink Again... (of course, it’s all my fault in his eyes 😒)

    Well, of course, there is trouble in paradise again 🤦🏼‍♀️. My husband decided to get drunk today and stonewall again. But, there is at least some hope: I didn’t allow myself to get so emotionally disregulated.

    Down to 30% of my Stimulant Medication Dosage, Happily Married

    Down to 30% of my Stimulant Medication Dosage, Happily Married

    It had now been almost two months since lockdown and quarantine measures started taking place where I live. I have greatly reduced the dosages of my stimulant, anti-anxiety, antidepressant, and insomnia medications while still managing to stay happy, healthy, and productive. My husband and I are getting along really well and... it looks like his visa to immigrate to the USA might get approved soon! Is this too good to be true?

    Quarantined and Taking my Meds

    Quarantined and Taking my Meds

    Well, one would think that my decreased work load and restrictions keeping me from getting too far out of my comfort zone would make it easy to get off my stimulant medications. Think again 🤦🏼‍♀️😄. On a positive note, I’m down to less than 40% of the dosage I was taking before starting this podcast, have been super productive and motivated, and have been able to avoid to temptation to taper back up on an off day. 👍🏻.
