Super frustrated, but heading in the right direction

OMG. My doctor forgot to write the quantity on the Zoloft. Her office is closed until Monday, so I won't be able to get that script filled until then. I even looked at it walking out of the office and thought it was strange that there was no # amount, but figured maybe it just came in a pack or something. How was I supposed to know? Not like I've ever taken it before.

She did give me an anti-anxiety meds. I haven't taken it yet, mainly because I'm not anxious at the moment. Funny how that works out. Took advantage of my mood and called the insurance company to find a counselor, who is also closed until Monday. Called the pedi to discuss the safety of taking these meds while bfing my dd, but as you can assume they are closed until Monday. That lady from the PPD support group coordinator still hasn't called me back, and I called her on Friday. I'm kind of disappointed with that.

It's like I'm sitting in traffic. I see the exit, but I'm stuck at a dead stop in the fast lane and can't get over. So I'm just watching it and waiting. I seriously hate sitting in traffic, but at least I'm on the road to recovery. See what I did there?

 lol that was funny! you are definitely headed in the right direction and you should feel proud of yourself! Super frustrating that your doctor didn't fill out the script properly, but at least you have your anti-anxiety in the mean time. Sitting in traffic definitely sucks, but at least you can see the exit, you know that you're almost there :-)

Thanks. If I didn't have humor through all of this, I'd probably would have checked into a hospital by now. I did come forward to my friends and and family today and let them know what's going on, and the feedback of support has been uplifting.
