I just found out my insurance has decided to cover Nexium. It's the only pill that has helped my acid reflux at all, and when we switched insurance I had to stop taking it because it's almost $300 a month. (Don't even get me started on the pharmaceutical industry in this country)
Anyhoodle, now it's covered so I just called it in. This makes me very happy. I was really thinking I was going to suffer miserably with no relief for the REST OF MY LIFE. Because that's how my brain works. But now that I know there is relief in site, I actually feel a tad bit happy. Not manic, either. Happy.
Which brings me to this-I think (maybe? just a smidge?) that the chromium might be helping. It is kind of soon to say, but generally when I get severely depressed, once it starts to fade I get about a day of normal before the mania sets in. Bouncing off the walls in my head, everything is great let's do THIS! and THIS! etc...
But this time, I feel my depression just kind of fading away. And no signs of mania.
What if Nexium and chromium were all it takes?
