Ok, so last night I was able to take my wife out to a movie. When I first suggested the date she seemed happy and it brought her out of her depression just a bit. I get home from work and I she had gotten dressed, I told her she looked lovely and off we went to drop the kids off at the sitter and try to have a good night.
The night went well. We enjoyed the movie, she really seemed to come out of it for a while and was more like her old self. She's still been suffering from the muscle twitches and soreness, and the seats in this particular theater didn't help, but we left the theater in high spirits. We even got some starbucks on the way home.
This morning we both woke up from a weird night (probably due to the coffee) and I tried talking to her about her medications and how the lack of Percocet in her system might be affecting the way her antidepressant works. I told her when I started talking that if the subject was making her uncomfortable that she could tell me and I would stop. I think it did but she didn't realize it until she was already too upset and she started getting defensive and stormed off.
I now know that withdrawals are awful, And that they shouldn't be taken lightly. I thank everyone on here that has given insight and uplifting words. I haven't shared any of these posts with her, but I hope to one day. I think she will be as appreciative as I am that there are people out there that have been through similar things and wanted to help.
I hope I can get through to her today because I had planned a good family day to continue the feelings of last night, before this mornings stumble. I might not post much today or for the next few days, but I will try to check in. Just have to take this one day at a time.
