I have struggled with depression for a long time and recently (within a year) decided that I needed to take medication again.
This past week I stopped taking it and I didn't realize that it was numbing more than my depressed feelings. After a few days without it, I laughed genuine laughter in a a movie today and cried during a commercial. I can concentrate on doing one thing at a time without spacing out.
I didn't realize how my emotions were being blocked and it felt so good today to feel...to really feel happiness and sadness.
