Since I don't have a bunch of time for a more in depth post, here's the latest:
I'm doing a lot better. I don't know if it is the Lexapro kicking in, or that my hormone crash has somewhat stabilized, or that I'm getting some version of decent sleep. Probably all three. But I feel more confident in my ability to make it through the day by myself, and although my dad has been in town the past few days, I got through Tuesday all by myself without his help. So that's good.
But I wanted to post a little update so no one thinks I've completely lost my mind, or that I've been committed. I am doing a lot better.
