Something to celebrate

I was going through old journal entries, and realized that starting sometime soon, I will have been off Neurontin for a year. That period of my education is something I hope never to relive again. Anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about, here are the basics: I thought Green Day was too optimistic, I hat to visit the blog to spell my name right, I had to ask others whether I'd even taken the pills, I cried three times a week, and it was just all around not pretty.

What that experience taught me, though, is that it's okay, and important, to speak up when a drug doesn't work. I did, and got put on Lyrica, which works a lot better than Neurontin, and does not have the awful side-effects.

I am grateful that now I am able to step back from some of these situations and ask "what did that teach me?"
