Busbar Day 6

Day 6 on Busbar is going good. Couldn’t sleep very well last night, but not sure if that was just cause I had a lot on my mind. Cant really blame the medication. Overall, I feel ok, I had a moment earlier while I was talking to a coworker, that I felt like I was going to tear up a little, but I seemed to be able to control it better than recently. We were talking about a friend of his, nothing bad, just the mention of a friend, which would have made me cry before. So far, no side affects that I can tell.

Went to the Doctor 5 days ago and started taking the anti-anxiety medication Buspirone, also known as Busbar. I have been seeing a marriage counselor for about three months now with my wife. When we starting seeing the psychologist she gave us a bunch of tests. Some took hours to take, but the results came back that I had general anxiety. I was really surprised, I never thought I had anxiety at all. The next day I asked a coworker if he thought I showed any signs of anxiety, he didn’t hesitate for a second before saying “yes, most definitely”.

Still in denial, I continued to see the psychologist in hopes I would not need any medication. I couldn’t take it anymore, breaking down in tears, I asked my doctor if he could prescribe something for me. I had to ask my regular doctor since psychologist cant actually prescribe anything, they just can administer the tests. He too, determined I wasn’t depressed, but the anxiety was causing slight depression like symptoms.

Well, here I am, day 5, and I actually think I am feeling better already. I will continue to update this blog with my results or side effects.
