Normal behaviour

CS ... these meds have calmed me down no end .. only problem is im feeling dopey .

What im now wondering is how do I know what is normal behaviour ???? my thoughts have stopped racing ... BUT i have applied for a job here on the farm that is loooking good but im thinking about it continiously ..... thinking btw not obsessing....

this is going to be trickly .. to learn what is normal.

My natural personality is lively energetic and what not ...

I m going to go for weekly therapy with a pshychologist to help me deal with stress cos I cant imagine one should rely on meds too much ?????

Im feeling great tho .... it feels quite odd to be calm and think rationally.:)

Hi Carol,
Usually the dopiness wears off as one's system adjusts to the presence of the meds. As long as it's thinking and not obsessing, that sounds all right. Wise to also work with the psychologist, and that's where to work out the fine adjustments to normalcy. Welcome back to rationality !
