Prescribed Meloxicam 7.5 mg and thigh high compression socks. I’ve decided that I am not going to take the Meloxicam anymore. I started them a few days before the post of the prescription and decided they don’t work, and are too risky.
*****Update: (09-2014) I practice as much meditation, including cleansing and charging of my chakras. I play in the dirt, carry stones I’ve charged in my pocket and tuck them under my pillow. I try to eat well and appreciate as much life as possible. Nothing is easy, but I do know pills aren’t any easier.
****Update: I am still happily off all medications. I do not see a psychiatrist. I often think I should follow the old path I was following in the system but on the other hand I believe I have progressed beyond the need or I subconsciously believe it would be counter productive. (1-2013)
***Update: I am and have been off meds for approx. 2 months now. I do not see a psychiatrist either, nor a therapist. I am thinking I should, although I do not know what good will come of it.
