This week, I was able to discontinue one of the medications that I'd been put on when I had my little heart issue three weeks ago. It was one that had "a few side effects" - little things like, oh, swollen ankles, breathlessness, extreme lethargy, fast heartbeat, really vivid and unusual dreams. As the effects wear off, I'm beginning to feel "normal" again - whatever that is. I'm on a couple more meds for awhile longer, one possibly for a long time, but getting off this one particular one really made me appreciate how things were "before" and to relish the chance to return to that. I was, frankly, beginning to feel a bit old.
Just had to share.
