    Hi Victor

    I am on week 25 and can tell you that what you are experiencing is very normal. There are ups and downs during the recovery, its medications trying to balance in your body. You will feel some days or weeks good and than bad, and than good again. But those bad, low days or week will become weaker and less intense and good days will get longer and better:)

    Please don't give up, its hard journey but you will get there, it needs time, a lot of time. Be patient, and when you have bad day just remind yourself it is only temporary and thats how medication work.

    If you need to talk any time - i am here 😃
