I learned a very valued lesson this weekend.
To NEVER take your entire medication supply away with you.
We had a family party and we stopped in a hotel. It was a late night and I didn’t want to miss check out so… I skipped the Nortriptyline. What harm would one night do?
Well, I lost my handbag the following day and I had Topirimate at home but no Nortriptyline. I woke after 2 nights without it on the verge of a panic attack. Within an hour I’d prevented 3 panic attacks. I spent three days on the edge of insanity where I’d panic over nothing. It was Day four before I left my house and I had a panic attack at work. And it was a week before I felt normal again.
I won’t be doing THAT again in a hurry!
