lose weight, Mental

2 weeks on Escitaloprám 10 mg (Lexapro)

I have no idea why it took me so much time to start writing this article. I have to admit that I have a lot on my plate with youtube, learning, and also going to work but it was very important for me to write this. 

Two weeks ago I went to a doctor, scared and very disappointed by other doctors. My mental health was worsening even though I was going to therapy, working out, eating, sleeping, and the whole stuff. I used to think that this stuff helped but I was proved wrong. Sometimes we need some extra help because we can not do everything alone. I stepped into the office ready to defend my state and beg for help but I was met with love and openness. The new doctor was very proactive, she presented me with all my options and gave me space to decide, while also asking for my opinion.

I was happy, I had only read about people like this. I chose medication and it was the best decision ever. People say is life-changing and I used to think it is such a cliché but it is life-changing. I had no idea how good life without constant flight or fighting felt. My overthinking diminished, I am able to hear my rational thoughts and sometimes, I can find quiet in my own head.

The medication also helped me with my compulsive shopping, sugar cravings, and emotional eating. I lost 2 kg in 16 days because my appetite returned to normal. 

Six months ago I did not want to hear about medication, but if you feel you need help, please go to the doctor. Do not stop fighting for your mental health, you deserve to feel better.
