oh I sure hope that it continues in this pattern, til you don't have any WD effects at all, that would be great eh?
I have to remind myself, when the symptoms hit, that it means my brain is making the necessary adjustments to get me back to my "factory default" hahaha
and to try to be, if not happy, at least, somewhat relieved, that my brain is doing what it needs to do to recover from the chemical assualt
nice day today, I hope you can get out and enjoy it!!
