I mentioned that I was going to write a blog about this, so here it is!
I am participating in a clinical study for anxiety. So right now I'm either taking an anti-anxiety medication, or I'm on the placebo. The only bummer of which is that I think it's making me retain water. My weight has gone up slightly for no good reason and (don't read this if you don't want to know: my BMs have been super hard!) I've even been drinking extra water (16-18 cups instead of my usual 12-14)
I get to talk to a doctor each week, so that's been interesting. I got a free physical. They also took my blood and tested me for a bunch of things I've been wondering about. The good news : according to all of the tests I'm perfectly healthy except for having abnormally low blood pressure. The bad news : So I have no idea what's wrong with me then! If I'm perfectly healthy, why do i get lightheaded whenever I stand up, feel fatigued ALL the time, and haven't had TOM visit since the end of March? I don't know, but they determined that I'm still healthy enough to do the study, so it can't be anything too huge right?
I'll be participating in this study for the next three months and hopefully these pills will help me!
